Taking Stock - September 2014
Enjoying: Our last Red Sox game of the season. We went to the game on Sunday to watch our last-place team. It was a gorgeous afternoon, and it's always fun to watch baseball.
Making: Basil-Walnut Pesto, using up the rest of the basil from the garden.
Cooking: A new batch of granola. Trying to get stocked up before I start work and no longer have time for things like homemade granola.
Reading: The Painter, by Peter Heller. It's dark, but I'm digging it.
Hoping: My first week of work goes well.
Wanting: Some new work clothes. I may do some shopping soon.
Watching: House of Cards. Kevin and I watched the entire first season on the flights to and from Europe. We got home and signed up for the first free month of Netflix just so we can binge-watch season 2.
Playing: Uno with my little guy, while Aaron is in his piano lessons.
Eating: Ice cream every night. As usual.
Wondering: When I should declare it the end of "ice cream season" and put the spoon down.
Loving: September weather. Cool mornings and blue skies. Hello, Fall.
Noticing: How crabby I get when I'm stressed. Trying really hard to keep it under control.
Drinking: Water during the week, wine on weekends.
Knowing: We live a charmed life. There are times when Kevin and I stop to acknowledge this.
Feeling: Grateful. Hopeful. Nervous.
Listening: Mostly to Ryan Adams' new album. Delta Spirit's latest is on right now. They're both good but probably a little too sad-bastard for my current mood. Anybody got a recommendation for something happy and bouncy that I might like?
Bookmarking: A recipe for profiteroles. I've always wanted to try making them, and I'm thinking our anniversary might be a good excuse.
Needing: Rain boots. I've needed them for years. That's it - I'm ordering some today!
Waiting: For the holiday-planning mood to hit me. I think I'm too distracted by the start of work, but I know that it'll only be a few weeks before I start making lists.
Following: The news, but most of it makes me so sad. I understand why so many people just try to ignore it all.
Liking: My last week at home. With both boys in school full-time, the days are quiet and productive and relaxing.
Wishing: I had more time to add some fun things to my to-do list. But see above re: charmed life. It's all good.
