Borrowing from Amy at Rainy Saturday, I’m taking a few minutes to take stock.
Making: Made decorations for the boys’ Avengers-Bubble Guppies birthday play date over the weekend. Now I’m making it my priority to finish my book club read before tomorrow night’s meeting.
Cooking: Warming up lots of pre-cooked fall meals, as made during a recent cooking extravaganza with my friend, Allie. These include but are not limited to: corn chowder, chili, stew and enchilada casserole. Not stressing about week-night dinners is the absolute best.
Drinking: Lots and lots of coffee to keep my eyelids open.
Reading: The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared
Wanting: A new pair of comfy, warm winter boots.
Sewing: Nothing lately, but there’s a mending pile calling my name.
Enjoying: Snuggles with my boys in bed every morning. I love that it’s the place we all start our day. Together.
Liking: The brisk feeling in the air and wearing scarves.
Wondering: If Jacob is going to hear something about the events in Ottawa and ask questions. Wondering what I should say.
Loving: Re-watching shows on Netflix. I love background noise when I’m puttering around the house. Just got to the end of Gossip Girl and am only moderately ashamed to admit that now I’m onto 90210 (the new class).
Hoping: To maintain the resolve to eat cleaner and exercise more often.
Marvelling: At how I’m starting to feel behind in my Christmas planning.
Needing: More low-key weekends like the one we just spent.
Smelling: Bath and Body Works “leaves” and “flannel” candles. Fall in a jar.
Wearing: Skinny jeans with knee-high boots. Holla, fall.
Following: This whole Jian Ghomeshi business like it’s a bad traffic accident. I just can’t look away.
Noticing: More grey hair.
Knowing: That hard work is worth it.
Thinking: Sometimes there are just not enough hours in the day. All the more reason to spend them doing makes you feel good.
Feeling: A little overworked and a lot underslept.
Bookmarking: If this means pinning, the answer is gift ideas and comfort food recipes. I’m sensing a theme.
