Sienna being judgemental during my workout yesterday.

Taking a page from Pip’s book and using this list to do a life snapshot.

Making: a list of errands I need to run today now that a big paycheck came in.
Cooking: monkey bread tomorrow for our brunch group. And one version will be drunken monkey bread (just add liquor!).
Drinking: french vanilla cappucino.
Reading: Wild by Cheryl Strayed for book club.
Wanting: sunny, warmer weather.
Looking: out the window at the grey, rainy weather.
Playing: Words with Friends.
Deciding: what to wear today (I’m still in PJs).
Wishing: that I could just curl up and sleep all day like Sienna.
Enjoying: being done with craft shows for the year. That’s some crazy stuff.
Waiting: on packages in the mail.
Liking: Graze Box. Just got a new one the other day.
Wondering: how to tackle certain things on my to-do list.
Loving: that I’m close to 100 sales in the shop!
Pondering: possibly branching out to some new products next year.
Considering: the last few Christmas gifts I need to buy.
Watching: Reckless on Netflix.
Hoping: that weather in Arizona/at the Grand Canyon when we go is nice.
Marvelling: at the level of messy my desk has achieved.
Needing: to clean my office.
Smelling: my cappucino.
Wearing: PJs.
Following: a new podcast, The Cerrone Show.
Noticing: that I still have the headache I woke up with.
Knowing: that today is Friday and I’m relieved.
Thinking: about all of the house-cleany stuff I have to do before brunch tomorrow.
Admiring: pretty things on Etsy.
Sorting: through thoughts and priorities in my head.
Buying: Christmas gifts, a new hard water filter for the shower, dog food.
Getting: excited for Christmas. Ian has apparently had my gift picked out for awhile and already shipped it to his folks’ house in AZ. (We’re flying).
Bookmarking: things for next week’s Tuesday Treasure Trove.
Disliking: how tired winter makes me feel.
Opening: up design files I need to work on today.
Giggling: nope. Not really giggling at anything right now.
Feeling: relieved that my little sister is safely back from her deployment in the Middle East.

What’s your day look like so far?
