|Sewing lesson for the small. He made a drawstring pouch.|
I haven't been able to write lately, by which I mean I literally can't think of anything to say. I haven't touched my personal journal in....one month? Two? In any case, I found this great blog, which lead me to this great blog, which led me to this idea, so I thought I'd try it.
Making : a triangular, rust-colored shawl that I feel I've been knitting my entire life.
Cooking : something having to do with turkey. Turkey burgers? Turkey chili?
Drinking : a very light, lovely green tea with roses, gifted to me from my sis-in-law.
Reading: just finished Carry On, which I highly recommend. Now I'm moving on to this and this, plus whatever additional goodies I find at the library this week.
Wanting: this coloring book, auburn hair, time to myself, and a tiny house in the country.
Looking: at my "Pretty" Pinterest board; lots of little things that make me happy there.
Playing: The Last Of Us (does this category pertain to video games, among other things? I'm running with it!)
Deciding: where we want to move. We're leaning towards the country/outskirts somewhere. Not too far removed, but definitely not in town.
Wishing: for a new home. A change.
Enjoying: the fact that while everyone out front is stuck in 5 o'clock traffic, I'm in here with furry boots on my feet and cup of tea in hand.
Waiting: to hear about a new job opportunity for hub.
Liking: our slow, homeschooling days. I struggle with feeling like we're not doing enough. So many families are booked solid with lessons...music, gymnastics, dance, sports....but then I remember how spontaneous we can be, because we aren't bogged down with a bunch of other stuff.
Wondering: who pays over $3,000/month for rent? Who are these people?
Loving: this Instagram. So much good inspiration there.
Pondering: making these.
Considering: finally making my own kimchii.
Buying: goat cheese :)
Watching: the final season of Downton Abbey. You cannot know how upset I am that this is it.
Hoping: for spring to come early.
Marvelling: at my skills of procrastination and my refusal to take naps.
Cringing: at Republicans. Every damn day.
Needing: a long, hot bath.
Questioning: why women are now wearing their nails long, pointy, and slightly rounded at the tip. I tried to imagine myself so fashionable, but really just ended up imagining all the bodily harm I'd do to myself.
Wearing: full-on cozy gear. Favorite jeans, favorite hoodie, knitted beanie, warm socks, and big boots.
Following: this blog. I don't know what it says, but it's lovely.
Noticing: my son really needs a haircut.
Knowing: it's soon time to exercise and make dinner.
Thinking: about houses. Houses, caravans, campers, shacks, you name it.
Admiring: our newly put-together nature shelves (actually, it's my china cabinet).
Sorting: clothes and books. Continuously.
Getting: excited for the possibility of starting over, if such a thing exists.
Bookmarking: this recipe.
Coveting: this swimsuit.
Disliking: Donald Trump. I know, you're shocked.
Opening: my heart. Trying to, anyway. Certain circumstances lately have been closing it off.
Giggling: at The Eternal Dilemna.
Snacking: I don't have snacks near my computer. Do you have snacks near your computer? Can I have some?
Helping: my wee one quell his nervousness at meeting new friends.
Hearing: a distant video game being played (Star Wars, me thinks), the bathtub filling, distant sounds of traffic, my tummy rumbling.
