I’m not usually one to post these types of posts, but every time I read one somewhere else, I kinda love it. It’s just such a fun way to take stock and share little blips about life. It won’t become a series or anything, but I’d like like to try it once.
Making: lots of messes. Every time I get the house cleaned up, it’s time to get a project out and the mess starts all over.
Cooking: as infrequently as possible. It’s been hot and I’ve been bad at meal planning so we’ve had lots of cold cuts and fruits and veggies lately.
Drinking: Crystal Lite with energy.
Reading: “Daring Greatly” by Brene Brown. I love her stuff and this one is pretty good so far.
Wanting: a vacation. We head to Tuscon for a wedding this weekend, and although taking kids on a trip is never quite a vacation, it will have to do.
Looking: at my new website and feeling proud of my hard work and yet critical at the same time.
Playing: Knights. Kesler has been missing Easton while he is at school, so I’m the new playmate. It’s a tough shift for me to slow down and play more, but a necessary one I think.
Wasting: paper. I print and print and print and then wonder why we have no paper left.
Sewing: nothing. But I have some grand plans for an ombre maxi dress and a navy buffalo print infinity scarf.
Wishing: I were a better friend. I feel like I’m a taker right now, but I’m so grateful for my friends that give.
Enjoying: being awake before my kids.
Waiting: to share Nickel & Suede with you.
Liking: my Jim Gaffigan Pandora station. It feels so good to laugh.
Wondering: if my hard work is going to pay off. Wondering whether the scary ‘ifs’ will work out.
Loving: mozzarella sticks. Sometimes sugary treats late at night play to my migraines, but warm cheesy sticks are my friend.
Hoping: I can find Sam and Libby silver sandals in my size today at Target. They were sold out last night so I’m crossing my fingers I can hunt them down today.
Marveling: at how great life is. Things change all the time, but I’m so grateful for it. I can’t believe how far things can change and progress in six months or a year.
Needing: a date night.
Smelling: nothing. Time to turn on the scented warmer.
Wearing: white nail polish. I’m totally on board with this trend.
Following: Camp Patton. Her posts are my favorite to read on the daily.
Noticing: its raining again. This weather can’t decide what season it is.
Knowing: I have to take Easton to the bus stop in the rain. For the first time and probably not the last.
Thinking: this post is harder to write than I thought.
Feeling: foggy. I need to get some lists made and start planning my day or I’m going to be reacting all day.
Bookmarking: ways to wear headscarves.
Opening: the mailbox is one my favorite parts of the day. I wake up looking forward to what might show up in the mail. I’ll be one of those old ladies someday that checks the mail box all day long – way before and way after the mailman actually comes.
Feeling: Tired. I’m trying to shift my waking hours to waking up earlier and sleeping earlier, but its a hard transition.
Just for fun I’ll make you answer one or two of these: What are you wasting and what are you noticing?
