It's this kind of morning at the C residence: I'm drinking entirely too much extremely strong coffee & burning Christmas candles in an attempt to pretend that it is at LEAST Fall.
C U R R E N T L Y . . .
R E A D I N G Rise and Shine, by Anna Quindlen. That means two things: 1. I FINALLY finished Bridget Jones's Diary [about five minutes before I started writing this post, in fact.], and 2. I went into the library on Friday, judged some books by their covers, & walked out with a book I'd never heard of before, that isn't on my Summer Reading List. I've found that sometimes, those wind up being the best reads.
W R I T I N G... ... ... ... ... It seems I'm either good at reading or writing at any given time, never both.
L I S T E N I N G to The Open Championship on TV. Justin actually woke up before me this morning, so that he could come out into the living room & start watching it.
T H I N K I N G that two tests this week is a welcome change from the presentations of last week. They went well, but I psych myself up SO much before them. It's mentally exhausting. Plus, I barely slept last week.
S M E L L I N G a fresh cup of coffee, which is sitting right next to me. I have been drinking hot chocolate in the mornings instead lately, in an effort to lower my caffeine intake a bit, so it is a special treat this morning.
W I S H I N G for success in nabbing a part-time job.
H O P I N G for the same.
W E A R I N G a huge Tech hoodie from freshman year, as well as some green, polka-dot pajama pants.
L O V I N G the shopping that Justin & I did at Mayfaire yesterday afternoon. We got a chair from Pottery Barn, as well as some cozy basics from Gap. And let's not gloss over our little pop into Starbucks. That alone is enough to make my day.
W A N T I N G a week-long beach vacation. Trudging down to the sand early in the morning, staying until around noon, having a lunch of sandwiches, heading back down to the beach around 4, & staying until sunset. And shopping at the outlets on rainy days. Oh, & dinner on the balcony. That's what I want, at this moment.
N E E D I N G a good workout in the gym this afternoon.
F E E L I N G a bit jittery from this coffee, to be honest.
C L I C K I N G this post & similar, trying to figure out what to do with my growing glass bottle collection. I also want to do one of these things with some empty wine bottles I've also been collecting.
What are you up to, folks? Please do share below.
