Listening: Somewhere in Time soundtrack on Grooveshark. So romantic I want to die.
Wearing: chocolate cable knit sweater, khakis, brown leather Lands' End clogs, no make-up day.
Drinking: great big mug of cocoa last night in bed. Homemade mix made with powdered coconut milk. Yum for tums.
Eating: pre-run breakfast was banana peach smoothie, half of Isaac's sprouted English muffin he left on his plate. Mid morning snack was bowl of marinated veggies from last night's dinner. Lunch was brown rice with braised garlicky kale, half an orange.
In the kitchen: baked up some banana bread to use up a bunch of those ripening bananas on the counter and also a batch of sweet potato hummus from one of my fave blogs. Really good and very interesting.
Reading: Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy. I'm into him.
In the mail: never ending stream of college recruiting letters coming in for Sam these days (he's a high school Sophomore) because of his high PSAT score. With all this attention, as well as the influx of emails... well, we'll just say he's a little overwhelmed. I think it's cool.
Noticing: can't stop thinking about this cozy home. Appealing on so many levels.
Wishing: I could go somewhere. Leave town. See the world. Have an adventure. Like really, really bad. Maybe something along these lines. If I'd go so far. (I think I could.)
Joy Bringer: Having her come over and visit this afternoon. How she brought me a veggie sandwich and a chocolate, spinach, banana, and avocado shake. (Really good, by the way.) Her sitting down on the couch and us just talking like such good friends as we are. And me going later to take one of the loaves and a card to a neighbor who's recently lost her mother.
Visiting is good for the soul.
