I like posts on other people's blogs (like at Knit Happens) that list where the writer is at in the moment. Checking in, or taking stock, in a quick list has an appeal to me. I'd like to go back and reread these to see how I've grown, where I was and where I am now. Or where I've stayed still. So here's my attempt to 'take stock' today:
Making: scarves as year-end gifts for teachers with a very concrete deadline
Cooking: it's BBQ season!
Drinking: discovered Black Fly Tequila Margaritas (pre-mixed coolers) at the LCBO... yummy mix of sweet and sour with just a touch of salty
Wishing: I had more down time and could slow down my busy mind to enjoy the time I do have
Enjoying: grandparents who will do overnight babysitting
Watching: action movies (it's Father's Day!), and World Cup soccer
Feeling: the bittersweet end of school, where I say goodbye to routine and welcome more freedom
Wearing: flip-flops. All the time.
Buying: new Erin Condren life planner - brilliant, brilliant, brilliant must-have
Reading: what alice forgot
Feeling: fatigue... where does that come from?!
Hoping: for more joy in the process and less worry about the product - knitting, and in general
Starting: an online course for work, plus teaching at the same time, in July
Being: happy to be home with my family
Hearing: television shows, the dryer spinning, boys saying "I'm bored".... a typical Sunday!
There's where we are today.
