Notes about right now

I've see this list on numerous blogs, so here's my take:

Making
:
an effort to put the dishes away
Cooking :
banana bread
Drinking :
Earl Grey tea with milk
Reading: some really trashy James Lee Burke book that I can't even remember the title of

Wanting:
to have things settled
Looking:
for houses in Charlotte
Playing:
Trouble with Mollie (the game with the popper)
Wasting: time dealing with stupid administrative issues

Sewing:
an apron as a gift
Wishing:
for a cure for cancer
Enjoying: the cooler weather and the feeling of fall

Waiting: until the kids go to sleep to grade exams
Liking: the space in our living room, now that I moved the sofa back a bit

Wondering: why cranberry red is such a popular paint color in the south

Loving
: how much Mollie and Lucy care for each other
Hoping: that the new baby will fit into the family without too many growing pains
Marvelling: at the crap that's on TV
Needing: a babysitter

Smelling:
the baby powder I put down as a deterrent to the ants
Wearing: stretchy black skirt, T-shirt, Cure Leukemia bracelet, no shoes

Following: my heart

Noticing:
cobwebs everywhere
Knowing: my priorities

Thinking:
about the huge list of things I have to do (let alone want to do)
Bookmarking: quinoa recipes
Opening: the doors to let the breeze in
Giggling: at Lucy wearing at least 20 sets of Mardi Gras beads, a dozen bracelets, and nothing else!
Feeling: like I need a day off

Nice list! Sounds like you have a lot going on but a lot under control, too, even if it doesn't feel that way :)

Mmmm, banana bread, my favorite, will have to make some, my freezer is becoming inundated in bananas, they go off so quickly here! Hope you got some free time!
