It’s midyear, I just passed another birthday and it seems like as good a time as any to stop and take stock (inspiration from this site), reflect a little, give you a sneak peak into my day. If you would like to join me you can share your list on the FB Page!
Making : Angel wings. No, that’s not a metaphor for anything, it’s part of an art course I’m re-taking this summer. They are about 2 feet long, made of wood joining biscuits (I have no idea what they are really for).
Cooking : Pesto. Although, I guess that doesn’t technically count as “cooking” since it’s just a matter of tossing all the ingredients in the food processor but I harvested my basil this week so pesto-making is on the list tonight. As for real cooking, I plan to make some bone broth in the pressure cooker this weekend.
Drinking : Coffee, decaf. With a tiny bit of creamer. I really need to stop using creamer (nothing but chemicals) but its a tough habit to break.
Reading: Oh boy, this is a tough one to answer because I’m always in the middle of about 7 books at a time. Today I will finish The Happiness Project, which was a great read!
Wanting: To start working out again, for reals. Not just physical therapy. Sigh…
Looking: At the mess of half-finished art projects on my desk. Focus, Carey, focus!
Playing: 2048 app. So simple, so addictive.
Wasting: 2 serrano peppers in the crisper. Let’s face it, there’s only so many things you can do with hot peppers.
Sewing: Nada. I only sew when I absolutely must.
Wishing: The next season of Nashville was on. I binge-watched the first 2 seasons and now I’m impatiently waiting.
Enjoying: Summer. Even when it’s “too hot”, I’m at my best in the summer months.
Waiting: Ina’s got a new book coming out this fall!
Liking: Stitcher. I also use Instacast to listen to podcasts, but Stitcher has some great features as well.
Wondering: Why in the heck I can’t get those first two paragraphs single spaced! These are the things that drive me crazy.
Loving: My new, red, 20 oz Klean Kanteen. Klean Kanteens are the best! #kleankanteen
Hoping: This next 6 months brings some clarity as to why my body keeps shutting down.
Marveling: At how much food I have grown over the past year. It has it’s ups and downs but overall, my garden rocks!
Needing: To remember to take all my supplements. I always forget something!
Smelling: The coffee I’m drinking.
Wearing: Skinny jeans, black peasant-ish top, black flats. Pretty standard uniform for me during the week.
Following: Wellness Mama, Chris Kresser & Liz Wolfe.
Noticing: I need to give my fingernails some attention this weekend. Maybe a coat or two of bright blue polish?
Knowing: It will all work out somehow.
Thinking: How I won the Family & Friends Lottery. They really are the best.
Feeling: I haven’t felt well all year. My body needs a serious reset.
Bookmarking: A bunch of Paleo recipes. I’m not really a ‘Paleo” zealot, but I need to avoid the high-inflammatory foods for a while and since there are so many great recipes floating around these days that just happened to also be Paleo, it will make meals easier.
Opening: My order from Sephora came in! I ran out of concealer weeks ago but I waited to re-order so I could cash in on my birthday month freebies.
Giggling: I’m not much of a giggler.
