|drinking| green juice and homemade kombucha.
|reading| augustine + goodnight gorilla + ND and Seminary and PhD stuff. you know, new decade life goals research and such. + one more thing by b.j. novak
|wanting| to buy sweaters but my sweat glands won’t let me just yet.
|looking| at my freshened up bookshelves.
|playing| with my hair. to chop or not to chop. what the heck do i want to do with it for fall?
|wasting| time thinking about stupid things like my hair.
|sewing| i really just need to remove this one. slacker.

|wondering| if i will ever learn how to play the piano. i really need to get back at it.
|loving| family walks before bedtime.
|hoping| that we get some good lemons and oranges from our trees…
|marveling| at God’s perfect timing.
|needing| to just make a decision about our dining table and chairs and put an end to all the nonsense.
|smelling| frankincense and patchouli.
|wearing| comfy soffe shorts from back in college and a roots canada t-shirt.
|noticing| the light shifting into a new season.
|knowing| that i’ve got it good.
