looking: the clouds are magnificent today. Towering puffs against the vivid blue. So glad I had the camera with me in the car when I went off for a quick errand this morning. Pulling over to the side of the road for these little impromptu stops is a common occurrence for me nowadays. I'm finding that having it handy is essential when I want and need to catch these fleeting moments and beautiful scene-scapes.
listening: Fleetwood Mac
creating: someone was way too generous on Mother's Day. It's not like our old blender (which is attached to my Bosch mixer) wasn't functional. But this new one-- wow. Looking forward to creating lots of good things in the kitchen in the days and years to come.
wearing: tan T-shirt, bare feet, and brown shorts I sewed last summer.
doing: it's all about studying these days. Plopping myself on the floor in my room with my materials spread out all over. (It's a common sight.)
Tonight, part two of my anatomy final. Written comprehensive anatomy (everything we've learned since October...ehhhh.) continued next week. Earned a perfect score on Monday night's written Russian sports massage final and a 96 out of 100 points on the hands-on portion. (Just call me Olga.)
I'm very grateful that I've been able to maintain a 4.0 so far, but if that drops, I'm okay with it. I've learned that the only thing I can do is my best, and if my family's needs take precedence, I know where my priorities are and should be.
Excited for next terms class offerings: Acupressure, trigger point, and pathology. Good stuff.
eating: lunch was leftover minestrone from the pot I took over to my parents yesterday afternoon. Rice crackers, hummus, and the last of this morning's green smoothie.
homekeeping: with everything that's been going on, the house and garden have been neglected. Just trying to get by with the basics. And... the garden... sigh. I haven't even started getting the beds tilled and weeded and readied. Hopefully, this weekend we can get out and get going.
reading: not a lot of time for recreational reading as I'd like, but I've been (so far) enjoying The Elegance of the Hedgehog, as well as pouring over a few photography books I picked up at the library.
going: leaving in a bit to my school library volunteer job.
wishing and dreaming: oh how I'd love to go somewhere. To get away and see new things, new places. To have a retreat. To have a vacation, a break from it all. Most summers allow time for those types of things, but with my school demands, there will be no break in sight until after mid October when I graduate. It'll all be worth it, though. Thinking that Fridays will be reserved and cherished as the day for little day trips and excursions.
