Right now.

I thank Nicola for getting me started on this. It's nice to be reminded to slow down and think once in a while.
Making: plans for my upcoming trip to Beaver Island
Drinking: good hot coffee with cream
Reading: directions for my new knitted hat, the one I will call my U.P. Blueberry Hat
Wanting: to live in the woods, on a river, surrounded by peace and beauty
Looking: for the words to describe how I'm feeling. I haven't found any that aptly describe it yet
Playing: a Sarah McLachlin C.D. and enjoying how it makes me feel
Wasting: time that could be spent with you
Sewing: a pretty little dress for Maris
Wishing: I were sitting in a cozy tea shop with Alex
Enjoying: the sudden fabulous turn my life has taken
Waiting: peacefully, patiently for my life to catch up to my dreams
Liking: the changes in the woods around me
Wondering: how I'm ever going to catch on camera the fabulous moonrise that's occuring in the morning sky
Loving: that I'm surrounded by people whom I adore and who adore me
Hoping: for clear and bright night skies this weekend
Marvelling: at the changes in me over the years
Needing: to get back to my list of three
Smelling: Indian food - again
Wearing: skirt, sandals, blouse -hanging on to summer
Following: my heart
Noticing: that a dove is sitting on the railing outside my window
Knowing: that life is grand
Thinking: that I should be working, but there's nothing to do but rest
Bookmarking: ideas for a handmade Christmas
Opening: my eyes to the future
Giggling: at the crazy antics of late
Feeling: that I truly live a charmed life
