Making : A mess, most often. My creativity levels have been low, but I think I might go back to working on the scarf/blanket/poncho, whatever it might end up to be that I started knitting a couple of years ago.
Cooking : Dog food, my dinners.
Drinking : Coffee and tea during the day (because it’s cold weather now and warm drinks are required), water and wine in the evenings.
Listening to: Alexa sometimes. She’ll play my music – current selections are the music from the new A Star is Born and Barbra Streisand’s new album, Walls. Also some NPR podcasts.
Reading: Larkspur Cove by Lisa Wingate
Next read: The next book in the three-book series, The Shores of Moses Lake collection.
Wanting: A warm, rainy winter, with the snow confined to the mountains. Please.
Looking: At my iPad screen, because that’s where these questions are.
Playing: Solitaire on the iPad when I take breaks. Ha! Who am I kidding? I don’t do enough work to need breaks, but I take them anyway.
Deciding: What I might do today. I was going to burn the pile of yard debris, but I think it’s too windy for that.
Wishing: that I would win the lottery without buying tickets.
Enjoying: Quiet time with my furry girl. Life in general.
Waiting: For? Whatever might come next, I guess.
Liking: My life. Chocolate.
Wondering: If Tuesday’s election will really change anything.
Loving: Life. My friends. My kids. My furry girl. The quiet.
Pondering: How to deal with the election results. Whether to become an ostrich and bury my head in the proverbial sand.
Considering: An idea for some paintings I’m thinking of doing.
Buying: Nothing, at the moment. My budget is groaning.
Watching: The Amazon Prime series Homecoming.
Next watch: That’s undecided. It’ll depend on my mood.
Hoping: That our world, our society, regains some common sense and tolerance.
Marvelling: At the wonders of technology. At the things people choose to believe sometimes.
Cringing: At the mood of the country.
Needing: Less division, more tolerance and common sense. Do you sense a theme, here?
Questioning: How we got where we are and why.
Smelling: The roses. Not really. The roses are gone for this year.
Wearing: Sweat pants and a robe, because I can.
Following: The news, the weather, bloggers, all the ducks in front of me.
Worrying: About the state of our country and the world, which is stupid because it won’t change anything.
Noticing: The sun breaking through the clouds. The birds and chipmunks visiting the feeder. The wind blowing the bushes and trees outside my windows.
Knowing: That I have enough.
Thinking: About whether to get dressed sometime today or spend my day in my sweat pants and robe. Because I can.
Admiring: Those who speak up for their beliefs in a reasonable, non-threatening manner.
Sorting: Through my collections of stuff. Occasionally. Trying to thin out.
Getting: Frustrated with our government.
Bookmarking: Things I want to look at later.
Coveting: An oceanfront house. On a hill with a path to the beach, because the sea levels are rising.
Disliking: The fact that our government seems to be condoning the spread of hate and division.
Opening: A can of chicken to make chicken/egg salad sandwiches for my lunch.
Giggling: While I was texting with my son last night, trying to dictate the word “occasionally” and all the app was hearing was “OK Asian only” or “OK simile”. Obviously I need to work on my enunciation.
Feeling: Peaceful. Because I’m in my comfy home with my furry girl and I have enough.
Snacking: Evenings when I watch TV on roasted buttered cheerios dusted with a little cinnamon and sugar. Yummy.
Hearing: The wind chimes singing their song in the wind. My furry girl snoring as she sleeps in her chair. The furnace coming on to keep us warm.
Dawn managed one-word answers (check her out if you haven’t already). I am unable to do that apparently.
