The -ing List

Cathy ZielskeCZ Life53 Comments


After reading a recent post by Elise Blaha Cripe, I thought I'd give one a whirl.


working on getting everything running smoothly on my new computer system.

watching Orange is the New Black with Dan, and loving it.

listening to Ben Harper.

trying to refocus on healthier eating.

preparing for foot surgery in a few weeks. Buh-bye bone spurs.

loving our unseasonably cool, Minnesota August weather. 

revisiting protein smoothies (but with almond milk, instead of yogurt).

continuing to work with my amazing therapist.

wanting to learn Italian.

laughing at this video.

brainstorming some new classes for 2014. 

re-organizing all of my photos into better albums

enjoying this final month of summer break with the kids.


What about you? Give me one "-ing" in your life, right now.

    Loving my friend Cathy, and her awesome list!!:-) You’re always an inspiration! (And, Health Coach Leslie says to try adding some hemp seed to your smoothies if you don’t already! Great protein source, and very yummy!)

    looking for a good podcast to learn Italian (I found Coffee Break French to prepare for a visit to Paris 4 years ago…and sadly, there doesn’t seem to be an Italian equivalent – I’m planning a trip there in May 2014). Please keep us posted on your efforts to learn Italian!

    I love these lists! I’ve been doing them monthly for coming up to a year now, I think, and plan on turning them into a simple mini album with the words and photos I share on each of my post

    I love this photo, too… What an awesome capture!

    loving this post and the picture at the top
    thinking what to buy at the grocery store today
    wondering if it will be a good day for the beach, chance of rain
    listening to the birds outside my window
    feeling hungry already
    wishing to go out for pancakes with strawberries
    savoring these last couple weeks of vacation
    praying for a miracle about a relative’s new health news
    thanking God for all I’m blessed with
    itching to get my paints out today and play
    thanking you for letting us share with you today

    hope you put this in your PL this week.

    Omigosh! I’ve been going on and on all week about learning Italian! It’s SUCH a beautiful language! My daughter and I finally checked out the library online resources (we are in Scott county) and they have a program through there FREE that we have been learning off of called “Mango”. It’s based off using flashcards and repetition. Our ultimate goal is to order the “Fluenz Italian” system and then we are taking off. My sister used this system to learn Spanish and she’s learned so much from it! Check out your library and the other system. Fun, fun, fun!!! Good luck!
