Taking Stock - April 2015
Watching: The Americans. Dark and twisted, but such a great show. Fascinating to see a dramatic show set in the 1980s, too. Oh and The Imitation Game - have you seen it? So good. So sad too, though.
Eating: Asparagus. It's not quite time for asparagus here in New England, but I can't wait, so we've already been eating lots. This past weekend we threw a bunch on the grill - yum.
Loving: Yoga. I'm in a good rhythm right now, and it feels great, body and mind.
Savoring: Every sunny day. It's amazing how much I appreciate the warmth of sunshine after enduring this winter.
Listening: To Brandi Carlile's latest album - she's going to be at Newport this year. Also really loving Haunt the House, a relatively recent discovery.
Anticipating: Summer! And all it brings, including visits with my family, who I really do not see enough.
Reading: Leading the Life You Want. As I've mentioned, I'm trying to incorporate more non-fiction into my reading list. Self-improvement and all that.
Wanting: The big crack in my kitchen floor to magically disappear.
Enjoying: The sounds of baseball from our back yard. I love where we live.
Wondering: Where my next job assignment will be, and if I will like it, and if it will be manageable, and...
Realizing: The downside of consulting is the uncertainty.
Feeling: Confident that I am working for the right company and happy that I have the opportunity to work with cool and talented people.
Hoping: Our neighbor will share some of her garden with us again this year. I haven't been able to bring it up yet, and I'm afraid we might not get to have a garden this summer.
Thinking: We can always at least put together a planter garden somewhere - some big pots of tomatoes and carrots and eggplants or something. We can be creative and come up with something.
Noticing: The house is dirty. We let our housecleaner go a couple months ago. I've been trying - and failing - to keep up with it myself. Time to admit defeat and hire more help.
Laughing: At my boys. They are a constant source of entertainment.
Wishing: I had purchased a sun hat a month ago - every one I like is already sold out. Booo.
Packing: My new bikini, sunscreen, and a new book. We're going on a trip tomorrow! Yay!
