Still stolen from Olivia.
Making: Plans for parties and gatherings I’ll soon be hosting!
Cooking: Not tonight, but I have a ton of counter space in the new kitchen. (Not to mention the cabinets!)
Drinking: The wine I brought back from Seattle, even though I have a ton of beer.
Reading: A couple of issues of The New Yorker that have all kinds of great Olympics-related writing.
Wanting: A proper outdoor table & chairs. A coffee table. A desk & chair. A side table for the entry way. A couch or loveseat.
Looking: At this.
Playing: Soon enough I’ll be playing Bananagrams with you, at my place. Oh, and Apples to Apples and eventually Zombie Dice.
Wasting: There’s no recycling in this building, because the city says they don’t have enough trucks for the multifamily dwelling recycling program.
Sewing: Who knows what’s next, I didn’t sew half of what I meant to this summer. (Who’s surprised?)
Wishing: At this very moment? Not for anything.
Enjoying: Fancy cheese friends brought back for me from Colorado.
Waiting: The only things I’m waiting for are things I can do something about.
Liking: How open and airy this space is.
Wondering: When my back will be back to normal.
Loving: My new balcony! Where I am sitting right now. Duh.
Hoping: To be in this apartment for a long while.
Marveling: At the life I have made for myself. It’s a pretty good one. (Now! With a great view!)
Needing: To go to Target. I only went twice last weekend!
Smelling: Nothing much at the moment.
Wearing: My Providence Roller Derby shirt.
Noticing: That the breeze just blew my candle out.
Knowing: That I have to go back to the old place and at least do a little cleaning tomorrow.
Thinking: About how to use all these plastic bins purchased for my old place.
Bookmarking: All sorts of organizing and decor ideas on pinterest.
Opening: Boxes upon boxes.
Giggling: About cute Olympic swimmers with my BFF, via email. (We hope you will join us for our platonic life partner commitment ceremony in NOLA next year.)
Turning: The central air off and on, as needed!
