in honor of this lovely columbus day off work, i thought i'd share my parents' festive front-porch fall topiaries, which i helped perfect with moss just yesterday. i also thought i'd serve up a little list of currents for you, in keeping with lowercase letters' miscellany monday.
reading the pioneer woman: black heels to tractor wheels. i just plain have not been dedicating enough time to reading in the last week. when i was reading the hunger games trilogy, i could hardly be found without my nose in a book. last week just wasn't the same, & i truly missed it. and you know what? this book is really growing on me; as with many movies of my past, when i'm not reading this book, i begin to miss the characters that live within the pages... i begin to yearn for the time we'll meet again.
writing a to-do list in my head for this lovely day off.
thinking about how excited i am that my little sister will be making the trek from her college campus in jackson, mississippi, to our lovely hometown to spend fall break with us! i haven't seen my sister in what feels like ages, & for a girl who is very close to her sister, it has clearly been far too long. plus, who else am i going to do tribal dances in the car on roadtrips with? i am greatly anticipating her arrival on friday.
smelling the gevalia pumpkin spice coffee that's brewing mere feet away from me (yum)!
wishing i didn't have so much to do - it's hanging over my head a little bit... but at the same time, i'm thankful for all of my opportunities.
hoping for some rain. tired of the crunchy, dry louisiana we've been experiencing. also, i want to go out on the boat, but until the lake rises, there's no chance of it.
wearing the most comfortable nautica sleep shirt ever, paired with the most comfortable, stretchy lounge pants ever. to say i'm happy & comfortable is an understatement.
loving the shape my fall playlist is taking. excited to share it this week when i mail it out.
wanting to be good at dieting this week. think healthy, green, crunchy veggies! and green tea.
