Currents and Gratitude
listening - birds chirping
eating - haven't decided yet
drinking - peach ice tea. I'm trying to give up the coffee since I don't really need it to wake up in the morning. All those calories in cream and sugar can't be good
wearing - black pants, green golf shirt
weather - Sunny and beautiful, in the 70's
knitting - Oaklet Shawl has 10 rows left, Circle Socks with my Socks That Rock, ready to cast on Evenstar, and picked out the colors for my Color Affection
spinning - not quite so much with all the above knitting going on, but with Tour De Fleece coming up you can bet my wheel and spindle will be moving soon
reading - 50 Shades Darker. While I was productive in knitting this weekend I didn't read too much. I was hoping to be on the third book already, but alas, I still haven't figured out how to live on no sleep
wanting - to go strawberry picking. We didn't get to do it this weekend and I'm afraid we might have missed the opportunity
needing - get rid of this pile of papers on my desk one way or another
enjoying - catching up on knitting podcasts. Besides my old favorites, I'm finding a few new ones
looking forward - to setting my Tour De Fleece goal.
wondering - if the watermelon and broccoli plants I bought hubby for Father's Day will produce anything. The seeds that I planted died off when we transplanted them.
thankful - a quiet morning so far. Mondays are usually a bit chaotic
appreciating - not being a taxi driver. While my nerves are still on edge and I am making my daughter nuts by making her text me every time she gets to her destination, I am beginning to enjoy this "teenager with a a license and a car" thing. I can't believe how my time is my own now. Part of me misses it, but a bigger part is enjoying it.
