Every Thursday, I’ll share a snapshot into my world by sharing the answers to the questions listed below…totally reminiscent of MySpace.
Listening to… Steve singing “Blurred Lines” over and over and over and over.
The dogs are super confused by it. All they hear is “good girl.”
Reading or following… Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Yes, I am reading a cookbook. No, I am still not done with As Always, Julia. I am not someone who can read a book all day. I tend to read before bed for about 30 minutes, or browse (or study!) a cookbook on the couch with a glass of wine and the TV on.
Watching… the dogs silently and intensely enjoying Kong toys stuffed with peanut butter and puppy chow. Edith has a classic peanut butter mouth face going on right now…it’s nice. I have some peace and quiet, as does Steve who went to bed early (it’s Wednesday night, fyi).
Oh, man. Edith just got the Kong stuck on her lower jaw. That’s how she moves it–she just jams her jaw/chin into the opening, hops up on the chair, then fights with the Kong to get it off. She’s so weird.
Craving… something involving tomatillos. Grocery shopping tomorrow after work, after a miserable start to the week, food-wise. Being away for a mere 36 hours made it practically impossible to make heads or tails of our fridge and thus we ate out last night (also, I felt dreadful and couldn’t stand up that long), and have bought lunch every day this week.
Avoiding… looking at a calendar. In fact, the dry erase calendar on my kitchen wall is still festooned in red, white, and blue and “July.” It is August 22nd. I am in denial.
Annoyed By… people who assume you have caller ID or a working mind reader and when you answer the phone, they just launch into a conversation that requires you to respond intelligently. Dude, I have NO IDEA who this is.
Looking forward to… a dinner or lunch this weekend with my parents. We’ve not seen one another for a long time–too long!–despite living approximately 25 minutes apart. Summer does this to us, apparently.
Daydreaming about… the day when we are settled and financially secure enough to just do what we want.
Yeah, this is the “daydreaming” category.
Drooling over… THIS! Oh. My. Sweet. Jesus.
Ok, so my dream car for way too long has been a wood-paneled Jeep Grand Wagoneer. If I had an extra $60k floating around, I’d buy this. This guy painstakingly and lovingly revives Grand Wagoneers. I read through the whole website and he’s pretty impressive. Holy moly.
Not loving… this whole “sun going down earlier” thing. Bah humbug, dude.
Grateful for… my husband.
I know I say that a lot. But it is true. We’ve been best friends for almost 12 years and it gets better every day.
