What I'm Up To

I read this list at Joy in Chaos and then at Adventures in Becoming Myself. Both posts made me feel a bit closer to faraway friends so I thought I'd put up a summary of my own.

Sitting...on my back deck with the toasty remains of a fire-bowl fire. We roasted hotdogs over it for dinner - Paige gave me the idea. Actually, she had a much better idea for caramel apples but we only had one apple and no caramel.

Smelling...the cedar burning in the fire bowl.

Listening...to crickets heralding the dusk. Also to Chris, who is cleaning the basement. He comes out now and then to get my advice on whether to toss something out or not. My answer is almost always yes.


Reading...Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson

Also reading...a lot of energy codes.

Loving...feeling at home, even if it is in New Jersey.

Dreading...fall cleaning my room (what else is new?)

Eagerly anticipating...the new kitchen! And a clean basement.

Worrying...that I don't appreciate what I have enough; that I've forgotten something important.

Wishing...for indulgences: cleaning lady, lottery win, early retirement.

Praying...to keep my luxuries: true love, happiness, health, faith.

Grateful...every single day.

Sharing...my thoughts with you.

i'm looking forward to caramel apples. alas, i will have to make them inside. it's still in the high 80s here. cooler weather on the way, but probably not until after Hallowe'en.

I just shamelessly stole this and put my answers up at MySpace.

Thanks! And congrats on the renovations! :)

I would love a cleaning lady as well. Someday!

Today at dinner Allie asked me what job I would do if I could do any job in the world I wanted.

I told her I would do the job I do now. Just being a mom, except I would have staff. Starting with a maid and a chef.

Thanks for doing this. I am loving reading everyone's thoughts.
