Listening: The sound of the air conditioner. That’s right. Amon is asleep, Harper is at school and Huddy & Sol are at MDO. I’m camped out on the couch taking care of business. And blogging.
Eating: Nothing currently, but that could easily change. Amon and I did hammer some BBQ chips at lunch. And sadly, I did not try either of those yummy recipes yesterday evening. Don’t be fooled, it was not due to my amazing willpower, oh no. Unfortunately, the Heaven in a Crock Pot was suppose to cook for 3 hours and the Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies had to rest in the fridge for like 3 hours as well. Who has time for all that? Not me. So I resorted to a handful of chocolate and peanut butter chips straight from the freezer. #classy I am going to try the cookies this weekend though. Hopefully.
Drinking: Water. That’s not very exciting is it? I should lie and say I’m maxed out all relaxed with a margarita. Yeah, that’s what I’ll put next time.
Wearing: My uniform…jeans and a tee. I’m so predictable. Always.
Feeling: A bit light hearted. Yesterday was for the birds and today I’m thinking about September and Huddy’s birthday and that is fun. Maybe because he talks about it every single day. Huddy is this amazingly, sensitive, compassionate, loving kid who just so happens to have an obsession with guns, knives, swords….ummm, pretty much any violent item. I’m sure a flame thrower would rock his world along with some nun chucks and bombs. He told me he wanted gun cupcakes for his birthday. Oy. I may have just purchased these at Hey Yo Yo to adorn his cupcakes.
Weather: Beautiful. August was a weird month in Tennessee because we had days like today which are crazy nice and then like 2 weeks of a monsoon. Crazy amounts of rains for days and days and days. I got in some good running numbers this morning, but I’m not going to hit my goal this month and I blame A) The rain B) Our local community center for closing down during the rain mess because they were refinishing the gym floor which you have to walk across to get to the track and C) myself…I’m tired.
Wanting: A nap. And cookies. And maybe a coke and a vacation to go see Ashley in Florida. Yes, that would all do just nicely. Oh, and I really want to quilt this quilt. Swoon. Big time.
Needing: To work. I always feel like I have to milk every last kid free or kid sleeping moment for all its worth. I should be creating and getting my hands dirty right now.
Thinking: About sustainability in Swaziland. I read THIS today by Seth Barnes and it just makes so much sense. My heart is always pulled towards Swaziland…our carepoint with Children’s HopeChest…towards these amazing people. Cannot wait to touch ground there this year. Exciting times people, exciting times.
Enjoying: The stillness of our house. It’s quiet. There are no toys thrown all over the floor. I can actually sit and think for a minute and eat a snack without having to share it or hide in my closet. Heck, I could even go to the bathroom alone…right now. Amon’s nap time on Huddy and Sol’s MDO days is a very good time my friends, so very very good.
