Life lately.

2:29 PM

   The blogtember  prompt for today is:  A "life lately" post. What you're up to, how you're feeling, how you're doing on your goals, etc. Bonus points for great photos!

   I know JUST the thing for this post.  It's a little thing I've been wanting to do that I spotted from Sydney, but actually originated with Pip, over here.  It's the perfect way to say "what life has been lately" without having to write a post like, "yesterday, I did suchandsuch and the other day I saw soandso, because those just aren't as interesting.  And it's in list form!  We all know how much we love lists.

Life lately......

 Making : My house look like fall has arrived.
 Cooking : Baked goods and freezer meals for when guests arrive next week. Well, I'm planning to.
 Drinking : Pots of coffee as little Charli has decided to awaken in the night again these days.
 Reading: Beth Moore Bible study on James and a treasure entitled "Organized Simplicity."
 Wanting: An army green parka.
 Looking: For tickets to Florida this Christmas. 
 Playing: At the park, in the yard, in the garden...trying to make the most of the last dry days.
 Wasting: Time on worry.
 Sewing: A skirt from my mending pile. I can't believe I actually fixed something.
 Wishing: For a certain few relationships to be restored to what they once were.
 Enjoying:  Free babysitting on a Friday night from our church family.
 Waiting: For the season premiere of Parenthood.
 Liking: Naptime.
 Wondering: When Charlotte will decide to start walking.
 Loving: The gift of a new day.
 Hoping: For personal revival.
 Marveling: At the beauty of my girls.
 Needing: More sleep.
 Smelling: Candles, laundry detergent, soup.
 Wearing: A thick, cozy sweater.
 Following: My mind a little less, my heart a little more.
 Noticing: How much I need to accomplish in the next couple of months.
 Knowing: I have a Redeemer who loves me.
 Thinking: I am deeply flawed.
 Feeling: Relieved for friends from church who were overdue and had their babies. I feel their pain.
 Bookmarking: Does pinning count?  Fall fashion, family picture ideas, and home decor.
 Opening: More cans of pop than I should.
 Giggling: At Brian Regan.  Jim Gaffigan. And this pinterest board.
 Feeling:  So, so, so excited for what the future holds.
