Taking Stock

Today is the first day of summer vacation for the girls. I had great plans to spend the day outside, but it is rainy and gloomy so I guess we are having an indoor day....not all bad. Seems like the perfect time to sit down for a moment and take stock....

Making: garlic scape pesto (this afternoon)
Cooking: from what came in my produce box
Drinking: cucumber mint tea
Reading: nothing, I need to pick up my library holds 
Looking: out the window at the flowers and the vegetable garden
Deciding: vacation plans
Hoping: for nice weather on the weekend
Enjoying: all the crochet projects I have on the go
Liking: the sound of my girls playing together
Loving: not having to make school lunches for a while
Pondering: my next challenge...
Listening: to podcasts - quite possibly the greatest thing ever
Considering: a trip to the farmers market tomorrow
Buying: nothing but groceries
Browsing: cookbooks, especially this one
Wishing: for a day free of responsibility
Wondering: how much more madness the world can take?
Marveling: at my daisies about to burst into bloom
Waiting: for the washing machine to finish
Cringing: at my dirty windows
Needing: a good conversation
Wanting: to decorate my bedroom, 10 years of blah is more than I can take
Smelling: a weird smell from my neighbor's yard
Wearing: leggings and a tunic
Noticing: that something ate my dill plant in the garden
Knowing: summer is going to fly by, it always does
Prioritizing: calm
Sorting: through the girls' clothes
Thinking: about what to declutter next (decluttering is truly addictive)
Celebrating: the end of school, the beginning of summer
Disliking: that my one eggplant plant has died...
Feeling: drained, but hopeful
Hearing: the strangest bird call
Embracing: the ordinary, or at least trying to
