I thought I'd do one of those check-in posts some people are doing. So...
I'm Reading -- Less than is normal for me. I'm a little behind on my reading goal for the year, though not so much that I think I'll have trouble making up the books before the year is over. I'm only a couple of books behind schedule. It's possible not increasing my reading goal much this year was a smart move on my part though. It's certainly looking that way at the moment, anyway. There's plenty of time for that to change between now and the end of the year though, so we'll see what happens. In the meantime, if you want to see what I read during January, check out my January book reviews post. My February one will be posted in early March.
I'm Feeling -- A little sad. My Auntie Sylvie died in January (Great Aunt, really... She was my Mother's aunt) and her little Yorkshire Terrier x West Highland White Terrier, Teddy, was laid to rest with her. Plus, my friend Rita lost her kitty, Karma, last month too. I wasn't exactly close with Auntie Sylvie, and hadn't seen her in a good few years, and I'd never met Teddy or Karma. But I'm still sad that they're gone. Not to mention, I miss our ratty girl, Skye, who we lost at the very end of January, and her sister, Star, who we lost a couple of days later. It's been a rough few months for losses of famous people again too, from what I've seen on social media. *sigh*
I'm Creating -- Nothing, I guess. Well, I'm writing, so I suppose that counts for creating something. But I haven't been doing any crafty type projects in a while. Actually, even the writing is going more slowly than is normal for me at the moment. There's just been so much going on. But I've not done any crafty projects in absolutely ages, so if writing doesn't count, I guess I've not been creating anything.
I'm Anticipating -- My trip to Drusillas Park in March. I'm getting a keeper for the day experience on March 22nd 2017, which was arranged for me by a very good friend. I'm very excited about it! Not only is it an awesome gift for someone who loves animals as much as I do, but having it to look forward to has really helped with all the recent losses; it's good to have something so awesome to be eagerly anticipating!
