Making: Plans and a lot of dinner/drinks friend dates 🙂
Cooking: I made a thing of mujadara the other night. Been making a lot of stuff in my dutch oven–a lot of chicken soup, but also braising things while it’s still kind of cool outside.
Drinking: All the coffee, lots of HEB brand lime sparkling water, but right now it’s a Diet Pepsi because the Barnes and Noble where I’m writing this doesn’t have water thanks to yesterday’s water main break
Reading: Still doing Keller’s book on prayer. Someone left The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks in the break room at work and I’ve been reading it in bite-sized chunks. I also got Who Shall Ascend the Mountain of the Lord? through interlibrary loan–it’s about Leviticus and it’s actually really awesome, believe it or not. (You know you’re a Bible nerd when a discussion of the chiastic structure of the Torah gets your sparks flying.)
Wanting: The weather to make up it’s friggin mind, GEEZ
Looking: At when I can take some time to get up to Waco and Austin…
Playing: My guitar again–I got it serviced at Guitar Center and it’s in good fighting shape, so I’ve been trying to play it a lot more.
Deciding: Whether or not to go to Austin in a couple of weeks for this…
Wishing: My allergies weren’t so bad. (I am, however, one of the last people in my department at work to not get actually sick, so I am praying my immune system keeps up the good work.)
Enjoying: Having a random day off today–thanks to the water breaking the university where I work was closed. I have a couple of things I need to get done for work tomorrow, but it shouldn’t take long.
Waiting: For Easter, on this third day of Lent. And for my car to get fixed–apparently my air conditioner compressor was janky and it’s at the shop right now.
Wondering: What I should cook for next week–I’m trying to be better about meal planning instead of eating out a lot.
Loving: How the weather is right now–70-odd degrees and sunny, it is perfect.
Pondering: Whether or not to get tickets to Hamilton when it comes through.
Considering: Reupholstering these chairs I’ve been hauling around with me forever, and also where I’m going to live after my lease runs out…
Buying: A subscription to StitchFix! I set it up so I get stuff quarterly and I was quite pleased with the first one.
Watching: The Chef Show on Netflix. I have a whole stack of DVDs from the library that I need to watch soon, too.
Hoping: I get stuff done tonight and tomorrow that I need to…
Needing: To do laundry, prep for trivia tomorrow, finish this thing for work, get groceries, vacuum my apartment, change my sheets…all that stuff I need to get done, lol.
Smelling: That good Barnes and Noble bookstore smell…
Wearing: Jeans, black and white plaid shirt, tan flats.
Admiring: The patience of the barista who told me they weren’t making drinks–I can only imagine how many disappointed/angry people she’s had to deal with today, unfortunately
