IMG_1089 IMG_1092 making // messes and tea with elinor. cooking // cauliflower tahini rice. my obsession. drinking // all the beverages. can't get enough fluid these days. reading // my birthing and baby books, as a refresher. wanting // to be in santa barbara right now. doesn't that sound nice? looking // out the window at the hummingbirds and butterflies that flit around our lemon tree. playing // with my belly button. my little game of tickle the baby. wasting // paper. lists and scribbles and such. sewing // nope. but admiring creations of other talented sewers. wishing // that i could know when ridley is planning to arrive... enjoying // saturday mornings at the farmers market. waiting // for an email. liking // enjoying some quiet time in ridley's rocker. wondering // where the summer will take us... loving // my wonderful man. hoping // for big things. marveling // at how quickly time passes. needing // a big iced tea. smelling // a balancing blend of lavender, sweet marjoram, chamomile, ylang ylang, and sandalwood. wearing // an easy breezy dress. i plan to sport these and these along for the next few weeks. noticing // how luxurious my hair is right now. yay for hormones! but be kind to me postpartum. no thinning and weirdo hair loss, pretty please. knowing // that God is in control. thinking // and thinking. and thinking some more. feeling // so many things, all at once. bookmarking // the psalms. and baby books. and journals. and summerwear catalogues. opening // a bag of hail merry chocolate macarons. which i intend to eat in one sitting, thank you very much. giggling // at ben and elinor's evening antics. they are such a cute pair. i love watching their relationship grow.
