I think I’m still trying to recover from my “Week in the Life” project, and seven straight days of blogging! I’m going to wait a few days for inspiration to catch up with me before I write something serious.
But in the meantime, here’s what we’re up to right now:
Eating…these homemade granola bars.
Absolutely delicious. If you knew how good they were, you would go make them right now. Gluten-free, sugar-free, no crazy ingredients, healthy for you so there’s no guilt in eating the whole pan in one day, as we basically have. There may be one or two left….
Listening…to Christmas music! We’re loving Michael Buble, Josh Groban, and Boney M, but we try to find a new Christmas album to enjoy every year. Ben got some Celine Dion going on Grooveshark, and she’s always fantastic, but hearing her voice singing Christmas carols leaves me feeling like it’s just Christmas on the Titanic…
Watching…Anika’s final performance from her fall musical theatre class at Manitoba Theatre for Young People. She was very disappointed that some family members had to miss the play, and has been begging me to put the video on my blog. So, here’s the link to the video of Anika’s performance, for anyone interested in that kind of thing. (Kaylia is extremely interested in it. She watched it about 10 times yesterday, and has all the songs memorized!)
Reading…this book, which I got Ben for a grad gift. But I started reading it, and it’s so good!! It’s just a little book, but it’s packed full of great stuff. I’m thinking we should be buying a few more copies to give away as Christmas gifts.
Planning…for speaking engagements for in the New Year! I’m speaking at a ladies’ retreat, as well as a couple of other functions, and I’m really looking forward to it!
Wondering…what kinds of topics all of you readers would be interested in as I plan future posts. I have a ton of ideas swirling around in my head, but I’m curious as to what kinds of things you all are interested in. Why do you show up here? What do you want to read about? What’s on your mind and heart these days?

I show up here because you are writing and pretty much anything you say, I find interesting! 🙂 My favorite Christmas CD is an old Phillips, Craig and Dean. Some fantastic voices singing some fantastic songs.
Thanks so much for your kind words, Chantelle! And we’ll have to check out your suggested Christmas music.:)
Glad you like my granola recipe! thanks!
We LOVE it! Great job on that one!
