DRINKING | Coffee. Strong. Half & half, one sugar. Made in my own coffee maker.
EATING | A slice of cherry cheesecake Caden forgot to eat last night. #funfridgefind
EMBRACING | My life. The good. The bad. But really, it’s got way more good.
ENJOYING | Adding triumphs to my 75 Days to DONE list.
COOKING | Cooking? Failing miserably of late. You know that “prepared foods” aisle?
TRYING | Everything, at least once.
MISSING | Little.
FEELING | Upbeat. I’m getting a lot done this month and it makes me feel great!
LISTENING | And appreciating Meghan Trainor’s “Like I’m Going to Lose You”. It is beautiful; haunting and hopeful.
WATCHING | A few of the new shows that just came out this season: Blindspot, Limitless, Quantico and Blood and Oil are the only one’s I’ve seen. Nothing spectacular. Nothing added to the DVR.
READING | It has a goofy title and I probably would never have picked it up if it hadn’t been recommended: Don’t Let Anything Dull Your Sparkle by Doreen Virtue. I’m glad to have picked it up. My copy has been read, and highlighted, and passages read again.
WEARING | A wrap. For some reason my shoulders are always cold. Hmm.
PLANNING | A few gatherings: a mums lunch at Alice Fazooli’s next week; the annual holiday girlfriends lunch and my Manifest party and a cooking event in January.
WANTING | To feel settled. The calm that comes with knowing everything in it’s place.
NEEDING | A massage. Time to book with Krista! Too many (enjoyable) hours spent writing lately.
WISHING | There was no such thing as facial hair as we get older. What a pain in the butt.
WAITING | For the upcoming obligatory events in December to be over so I can enjoy myself!
THINKING | This plan for a puppy may exhaust me before she even arrives.
ENJOYING | Getting all of my digital projects caught up: One Little Word, Thirty One Days of Thankful, December Daily 2014 (yes, that is not a typo).
ENCOURAGING | My kids to make choices that resonate within them.
CELEBRATING | The arrival of cooler weather. Enjoying the chill in the air.
MARVELING | At how long it is taking to get the work done in the back yard. Though, better the experts than me. I don’t have the patience but am looking forward to the stream flowing in the back yard.
ANTICIPATING | A full and frantic month ahead. I shall endeavour to keep the holiday hustle and bustle outside my space over the next six weeks.
CULTIVATING | A meaningful life filled with people I love.
