Sunday Stealing: Taking Stock

From Sunday Stealing

Taking Stock Meme

Stolen from: The Blake Collection

Making: a blog post.

Cooking: nothing at the moment. We had pork chops and biscuits and gravy for dinner last night.

Drinking: water

Reading: Factory Man, by Beth Macy (nonfiction book), The Book Thief, by Mark Zusak, and I'm listening to The All-Girls Filling Station by Fannie Flagg.

Wanting: to be rid of pain.

Looking: at ways to improve.

Wasting: time.

Wishing: for better understanding from the people who are supposed to be on my side, but really aren't.

Enjoying: the new extended version release of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.

Waiting: on the next and final installment of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, scheduled for showing in a theater near you on December 17.

Liking: that my husband realizes I am not feeling well and doesn't care if I don't dust or vacuum.

Wondering: how I grew old.

Loving: my husband.

Listening: to clocks ticking.

Needing: a hug.

Smelling: those biscuits from last night.

Wearing: sweatpants and my ragged "blue thing" cover and a T-shirt.

Following: The Newsroom and The Big Bang Theory.

Noticing: how odd I seem sometimes.

Knowing: that I probably really am odd sometimes.

Thinking: that these are some weird sort of questions.

Feeling: tired.

Bookmarking: nothing much.

Opening: my heart.

Giggling: about the long tale I've been weaving with my physical therapist during our twice-weekly sessions.


  1. Catch mine tomorrow. I don't like these one-word prompts as much as some of the others they come up with, but I gave it my best! Enjoyed your answers! Wishing you a good Sunday!

  2. i haven't done mine yet and this seems hard! but you did well! my mouth is watering for some pork chops now.

  3. I didn't see your link at sunday stealing

  4. That about summed up your thoughts in a nutshell.

  5. I love Newsroom we streamed it once we got HBO and now it is going to be over soon....Drat.

  6. I should watch The Newsroom while I've got HBO.

  7. We will call you Scheheragimpyzade. Or she who must be waited upon...until such time as they fix her damn problems. I went to the doctor and got stronger pain meds until they can get me into the doctor with the stronger pain shots. I'll let you know if you should try him!

    1. Well, that's an interesting nickname. :-) I hope the doctor helps you, too.

  8. Wasting time indeed. I felt that way too although, I enjoyed it.

  9. sending you hugs and needing your wisdom! come see!

  10. How did we get old? That is the question, isn't it? I am caught off guard every morning by the "old" woman staring at me from the bathroom mirror.

  11. Hope you are enjoying The Book Thief. I loved that book.

  12. I love the Big Bang Theory. I even watch all the reruns...over and over and over, etc.

    There is nothing with being odd. Odd makes you unique.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
