Taking Stock

Making: avocado toast for lunch
Cooking: nothing, I'm off-duty for the next few weeks
Drinking: tea, coffee, and lemon water
Reading: "Where'd You Go, Bernadette?" and laughing out loud
Looking: for things to purge from the house
Deciding: to make another crochet blanket
Wishing: spring was here to stay, but I know better
Enjoying: quiet mornings working on my cross stitch picture
Waiting: for some new books to arrive in the mail
Liking: my daily walks, I feel stronger every day
Loving: having breakfast with my family in the morning
Pondering: how much more crazy this world can take?
Listening: to The Minimalists Podcast
Considering: painting my toenails; in winter, I am crazy
Buying: not much
Watching: the squirrels at the bird feeder
Wondering: what the girls are doing at school right now
Marveling: at how unseasonable the weather has been lately
Cringing: at all my grey hairs; so many more recently it seems.
Needing: to get dressed
Smelling: my beeswax candle burning on the kitchen counter
Wearing: my pajamas, I did not sleep well last night
Noticing: how comfy and calm my home makes me feel
Knowing: how lucky I am
Prioritizing: self-care
Thinking: about what to put on the grocery list
Getting: some craft projects finished, finally
Celebrating: my girls' incredible report cards
Disliking: Easter decorations in the shops already (!!??)
Opening: windows for a little fresh air
Feeling: more relaxed than I have in a very long time
Hearing: quiet
Embracing: my break wholeheartedly
