It's been a while since I shared a 'right now' list with you guys, so here ya go...just a list of 15 things that are true right this moment.
Enjoying...the lazy days of summer now that my big trip is finished and school is still a few weeks away.
Avoiding...housework and landscaping even though they both desperately need my attention. I'm just not in the mood to deal with them right now.
Viewing...The L Word on Netflix; my daughter recommended it, and it's great. Of course, I'm binge-watching because that's how you do it. (Not advised viewing unless you're quite liberal...) Also still watching House of Cards on Netflix - just a few episodes left that I'm trying to savor watching with the fella.
Reading...Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons while I'm at the pool - total chick lit but highly enjoyable; it's reminiscent of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
Listening...to old school artists that I've missed recently - Prince, Chicago, Salt 'n Pepa, Eric Clapton, etc.
Wishing...for more time, for more life, for more laughs, for more memories, for more.
Tasting...fresh fruit of all kinds - strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, watermelon, peaches. I get so thirsty in the summertime in the South that only fruit seems to quench that thirst.
Dreaming...of living abroad and wondering how I can make it happen for real, even part-time in the summers would be amazing.
Planning...my upcoming school year - just in my head right now. The lists will come later.
Looking...for that amazing moscato that I had in Italy; I wish I'd taken a picture of the label, but I doubt that it is exported anyway.
Trying...to find that work/fun balance. Right now I'm spending way too much time having fun and being lazy, so nothing is really getting done. That's a dangerous habit for me to develop...
Wanting...to know where I stand and yet not force the issue.
Imagining...what it would be like to sell everything, pick up and move to someplace new.
Buying...just the necessities right now - trying to save some money after the big European trip and before back to school stuff begins.
Writing...lists, this blog, memories, goals, pretty much everything but the book I have waiting in my soul.
Where are you right now - not necessarily physically but emotionally and spiritually and intellectually? Do you like where you are or do you want to change it? I think these are important questions to ask even when I'm not sure I have any answers.
