|Still playing around with abstract painting. This is my second attempt. More layers needed, though.|
Taking stock on this last day of June. (The inspiration for this post comes from House of Humble- one of my favorite simple living blogs).

Cooking: gluten free, dairy free
Drinking: lots of tea, less wine
Reading: blogs, blogs and more blogs
Wanting: to sell our house
Playing: my Cat, Led, Van CD (Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Led Zeppelin)
Deciding: to step up my game at work
Wishing: for a day when I won't struggle (financially)
Enjoying: watching the Mad Men seasons, with M., for the second time
Waiting: for the wisdom and courage to expand Olive and Ash
Liking: having restaurants in our backyard
Wondering: how to spiff up my barren patio
Loving: summer break
Pondering: ways to be a better teacher
Considering: ways to expand Olive and Ash
Hoping: for guidance and/or inspiration (see 'deciding', 'pondering', 'waiting', 'considering')
Coveting: simple living blogs
Helping: hmmm... not enough
Feeling: healthy and content
Hearing: our very noisy neighbors
Marveling: at Peanut and Baby G.
Needing: paint, new shoes
Following: simple living blogs, artists, healthy living blogs
Noticing: that my face is no longer swollen and itchy from a new face cream- yay!
Knowing: that my kids are doing well (is the best feeling in the world!)
Thinking: about taking a trip with M....someday
Admiring: successful makers, bloggers, artists, my kids
Smelling: oil paint
Wearing: jeans, white t-shirt, earrings
Sorting: through our excess of "stuff"
Buying: too many things for two houses
Getting: excited for a little getaway with my kids
Bookmarking: gluten free recipes, small space decorating
Opening: endless amounts of moving/storage boxes
Giggling: hmmm... not enough
Snacking: on strawberries and blueberries
And there you have it. Stock has been taken! I wonder how my list would look on any other day? Any other month? Any other year? Interesting, I think. What would your list look like?
Have a great day! Juli
