January Currently

Wow! 2014 is here already!

Here's what I'm up to:

Listening - This song has been on repeat. I just love it so much.

Loving - Being a school teacher means often being on breaks while my husband goes off to work. It is so nice that we both get to be off at the same time. We have watched a zillion old movies and explored our new neighbourhood a bit more.

Thinking - I thank God so much for the new starts we had in 2013. We both had new jobs, got a new car, moved from a rental to our first home, moved to a new church, started bible school, and started blog/websites. We've been busy!

Wanting - It is really hot and humid here in sunny Queensland. I just finished a pack of Zooper Doopers and now require another - pronto!

Needing - I moved my humble little free wordpress blog over to this self-hosted website a week ago because it was getting to big. My eyes are so sore from looking at the screen as I get the theme just right and transfer all the posts and upload pictures! But I am so excited about this new website, it has been a dream for a while now - a place to come and get creative ideas to make you smile!

Memory/and or Tradition - Ever since my husband and I met we have formed a tradition of praying in the new year. That means we stay up singing praise songs and thanking God for the year that is ending and then pray over the new year ahead. This year we went up a notch - we joined in our church's 'praise and prayer party' which went from 10pm to 2am! I have never stayed up so late! But, so thankful this was how my year started.

Well, that's what I'm up to currently. Link up with Farley to share what you are up to!

Stay joyful!


  1. Sounds like you had a very eventful 2013, I hope that you have just a great year in 2014. And good luck with the new website!

  2. I also am in love with that song right now!

  3. You live in Brisbane? I LOVE that city! I went there a couple of years ago to visit a friend and fell in love. I liked it better than Sydney. I'm somewhat of a neighbor now since I'm living in South Korea for a year teaching English. And I love that you and your hubby pray in the new year and sing praise songs. That sounds like such a cool tradition!

    Congrats on all your new starts! What an exciting year! I had to Google Zooper Doopers because I had never heard of them. Here in the US they are called Freeze Pops. It's weird to think of it being summer by you and warm enough for ice pops when it is 11 degrees here with a wind chill of -7. We got a foot of snow in the last two days! Good luck in the new year!

  5. Wow 11 degrees! I wish it was snowing here - it never does :( Have to go on a holiday just to see snow!

  6. I would love to teach overseas someday. My husband and I actually went to South Korea for a few nights on our way to Spain (our honeymoon). So cool that you get to teach there.
