One of my very first blogs that I committed to reading every post was The Daybook. Sydney has phenomenal style in both clothing and her home’s interior. Her photos are simple and moving. She is a fellow momma to a sweet little boy. What’s not to love???!?!?! When I saw her sweet post about taking stock, I knew I wanted to copycat it! Then, I followed her link to another wonderful blog, Meet Me At Mikes. Such a fun one too! I’m putting it on my “to read” blog list. Here is my version of “taking stock…”
Making : Food! Always chopping, cooking, baking, browning
Cooking : Pork Chops with Cranberry Chutney and Barley with Peas ~ See recipe here.
Drinking : Sleepytime tea
Reading: The Purpose-Driven Life
Wanting: More hours in the day and a good neck massage
Looking: at my fall-colored painted nails and really digging them
Playing: with my 18 month old growing boy
Wasting: lovely pears that all got ripe (and overripe) at the same time 😦
Sewing: nothing! No way!
Wishing: a new travel mug and planner I’m liking this and this.
Enjoying: each and every afternoon when I get to walk out of daycare with H
Waiting: the holiday deluge of Halloween into Thanksgiving into Christmas. Love that busy, fun feeling!
Liking: Cheerios, banana, and almond milk. Every.single.day.
Wondering: about life with two babes
Loving: my husband, always.
Hoping: for clarity in decision-making
Marvelling: at how good sun can feel on a brisk-ish fall day
Needing: not a thing but maybe just a 3 day weekend
Smelling: what remains of my summer scented candles (burning them up to make room for fall)
Wearing: yoga pants and a peace sign hoodie, namaste!
Following: the news as best I can
Noticing: H is stringing together two words to tell me things
Knowing: that each day will get easier at work
Thinking: about the future, family and career
Bookmarking: mom blogs ~ encouragement, tips/tricks, and just plain-old understanding is so nice to see/hear from others
Opening: not opening exactly, but sorting tons of hunting mail for the Mr. Some comes every day!
Giggling: about a kid helping me figure out the computer system this morning and telling me “See, easy!”
Feeling: tired, hopeful, overwhelmed, content all at once
Happy Monday, Friends!
