Making : a commitment to print more photos so they aren't stuck in the computer, unviewed, forever.
Cooking : Not cooking. Sliced avocados + salt, bowls of raspberries, goat cheese + reduced sugar Craisins + cherry balsamic dressing + greens
Drinking : splashes of cold brew concentrate in chocolate milk. (from the ATK DIY cookbook: stir 3.5 cups room temperature water and 3.5 cups/9 oz ground coffee in a French press. Wait 10 minutes and stir again; cover with plastic wrap and leave on counter for 24 hours. Press and strain through coffee filter over fine mesh strainer. Chill and dilute as desired.)
Reading : a high-low mix of magazines.
Wanting : to live in a high rise condo surrounded by concrete, big windows, and artfully draped sheepskins.
Looking : for a reason to buy a grill pan. Would I use it?
Playing : a lot of hide and seek. Exclusively as the seeker.
Wasting : time on my phone. Need to cut back.
Wishing : the summer heat would not affect my emotional well-being so. It's SAD in reverse.
Enjoying : Orange is the New Black. Two episodes in and the writing is even better than last season.
Waiting: to find out if I will lose it a little, a lot, or completely as a mother of 2 under 2.
Liking : this maxi dress.
Wondering : why all Craisins aren't reduced sugar, they taste exactly the same.
Loving : my little family.
Hoping : for a labor and delivery that proceeds exactly as before (show up at 5 cm, get an epidural, wait a couple of hours, push 4 times. BAM. All credit goes to my labor coach.)
Marveling : at my own optimism in this weekend's purchase of a retro Lands End suit and matching rash guard
Needing : to get organized, stat.
Smelling : like sunscreen.
Wearing : trusty Teva Zirra sandals.
Following : my instincts regarding 'it's all going to be ok'.
Noticing : the edema in my calves. SWELL, I thought. And then had to smile at the terrible pun.
Knowing : I'm one lucky gal.
Thinking : of completing the 180 fitness challenge at Alamo 180 in the fall; 6 classes a week for 8 weeks!
Feeling : like everyone else's pregnancy flies by and your own goes sloooooooooowly (see also, Knowing)
Bookmarking : The Creative Action Network for cool and affordable artwork
Giggling : about this quote from Confederacy of Dunces that popped into my head the other day.
“So we see that even when Fortuna spins us downward, the wheel sometimes halts for a moment and we find ourselves in a good, small cycle within a larger bad cycle. The universe, of course, is based upon the principle of the circle within the circle. At the moment, I am in an inner circle. Of course, smaller circles within this circle are also possible.”
