Currently in December

And just like that it’s time for the last Currently of the year! I’m linking up with Anne of In Residence and her co-host this month Catherine from A Short Blonde to talk about current happenings in this last month of 2017.

~Currently I Am ~

Lighting – My yard. And here’s my Unicorn again because I’m dang proud of it. And well, too lazy to take pictures of the new additions to the yard – trees and a penguin. You’ll just have to believe me that they’re there. Or drive by sometime.

Choosing – Joy. Or trying dang hard anyway. This week is rather stressful at work but should be better after this and then I can relax and enjoy the holiday season. But no matter what, save for a weak moment yesterday, I’m working at choosing joy. This is my favorite time of year and I’m going to savor it.

Spending – Money on Christmas gifts. I’d share what I am buying, but too many of my giftees read the blog, so you’ll just have to take me at my word that I’m definitely spending on gifts! I love gift giving though, so it’s the kind of spending I really don’t mind.

Singing – Rockin Around the Christmas tree at my work holiday party on Thursday with the Office “Band”.  I’m still not quite sure how I got roped into this, but it’s coming together nicely and has even been a little bit fun.

Sending – Christmas cards! I need to get on top of this actually, I’m a little behind, but my goal is to have half of them in the mail by Friday. I think I can do it!

And that’s where we’re at! It is a busy and hectic time of year even with how fun and wonderful it can be. I need to slow down and remember what’s important and remind myself of my mantras that I shared on Monday. And I think it will be a good holiday.

Be sure to check out Anne and Catherine’s blogs for other Currently posts or to add your own!

  1. I can’t wait to see your other lights! I hope to get the rest of ours up this weekend. I haven’t even started Christmas shopping, so hopefully I can get that going in the next couple days!

  2. That unicorn is too cute! I just bought some super discounted pre-lit decorations from Michael’s to add some light too. I can’t share my gifts either, for the same reason! Break a leg tomorrow!

  3. Awww what a fun list! I was going to tell you that I totally saw that unicorn at target the other day and thought of you <3 he (she?) is so cute!!

    I love that you’re singing with your office band. Someone seriously needs to record this 🙂

    I can’t helieve we’re in the first week of December and that there’s still much to do, but will try to focus on the joy, too 🙂 xoxo

  4. Ooh your holiday party sounds fun!! I have a retirement party at work Friday and then a work party Monday and Tuesday (I’m at a college so we have three different locations, and I work at two of them). I’m excited though! It should help make the days got a bit quicker. 🙂


  5. I love that you’re consciously choosing joy. It’s a word you see everywhere this time of year, yet sometimes it’s hard to embrace (and we choose “stress” instead)! That’s fun that you’re singing at your office party–sounds like a blast!

  6. Cards are designed but not at the printer yet. I get the feeling we may be doing New Years or ground hogs day cards.
    penguin??? Penguin???? I demand pictures. Penguins are almost my unicorn. Almost. You’re pretty intense about your unicorns.

  7. That unicorn is so adorable! Hope to see a pic of the penguin (living on the other side of the world makes driving past difficult 😉
    That is great that you’ve chosen joy – I am trying to as well this month. Work is hectic this time of year but joy is a choice (I remind myself daily)!
    Your office band sounds so cool 🙂

  8. I love gift giving and sending Christmas cards, too 🙂 It’s my favorite part of the holidays (although I am trying to be mindful with gifts, it’s more about the thoughtfulness and not the monetary value behind it).
