Taking Stock

Right now I am:

Making: my Cozy Stripe Blanket
Cooking: vegetable fritatta (will be soon, anyway)
Drinking: strawberry wine
Reading: old issues of Mollie Makes - for inspiration
Wanting: a vacation
Looking: out the window at cloudy skies
Playing: country music on the radio
Deciding: that if I skip washing the windows this summer, life will go on
Wishing: the weekends were always three days long
Enjoying: an evening at home
Waiting: for summer holidays to begin
Liking: how green and lush the garden looks
Wondering: if I should teach Bridget cursive writing
Loving: the taste of local strawberries
Pondering: a work opportunity and what it might mean for our home life
Considering: a little getaway for Steve and I
Buying: summer dresses
Watching: the crackles at the bird feeder; we need to ration the seeds
Hoping: the weather is nice on the weekend
Marveling: at the succulent on the window ledge that is miraculously still alive
Cringing: at the thought of going grocery shopping again
Needing: some 'me' time
Smelling: the lavender candle burning on the kitchen counter
Wearing: work shorts and a t-shirt, both of which need to go in the laundry
Noticing: I have a sandal tan on my feet
Knowing: that I need to take some time to relax
Thinking: about all there is to do, and then bringing my mind back to now
Sorting: clothes - mine and the girls
Getting: hungry
Disliking: bills and how expensive everything is
Opening: my latest library book and realizing it is not for me; back it goes
Giggling: at Claire's kind but humorous description of a neighbor
Feeling: calm and anxious at the same time
Snacking: on roasted chickpeas
Helping: the girls with their spelling - they are both writing books
Hearing: the doves singing in the yard
