making: plans to date my husband this weekend. just us two. it seems like it’s been ages.
cooking: bourbon chicken from costco daily. It is SO GOOD. (and by cooking i obviously mean microwaving.)
drinking: egg nog! already stocked up!
reading: the casual vacancy. it’s fairly explicit, but these characters are good.
wanting: a day with nothing to do but lay in bed, catch up on tv shows and read.
looking: forward to our halloween costumes!
playing: joe pug hymn 101.
wasting: time trying to figure out how to live a more balanced life.
also wasting: a lot of time editing every picture i’ve ever taken on vscocam.
wishing: for ‘sunny and low 60’s’ to stay forever.
enjoying: my ethics & values class, & learning to really take a step back and look at our societal structure, how it’s affected us.
waiting: for the weekend.
liking: our nightly, lively discussions about everything—from affirmative action… to how fast the speed of light really is. jordan and I take stock of everything we’ve learned in school by reiterating it to the other person.
wondering: where to start in this never ending quest to better myself.
loving: weekly emails from ashlyn—she is loving every second of her life. she’s only been gone 2 months but i see a world of difference in her. she’s grown up.
hoping: for a stronger resolve in my small decisions.
marveling: at these fall colors. the red, the yellow—does it not seem brighter this year? it never gets old, every time i step outside i am taken aback.
needing: something to soothe my aching muscles. lunges are killing me this week!
smelling: cinnamon sticks boiling on my stove.
wearing: tights and boots.
noticing: how really brilliant my husband is. he is the most driven person i know, & i can’t wait to see him make a big deal of himself.
thinking: a lot about peace. how to achieve it, what it means for me, etc. asking a lot of questions of myself.
feeling: not as stressed as i should be. a win, in my book.
