Taking Stock 03

Happy week after Thanksgiving! Are you finished with your leftovers yet? I finally finished mine. I can't complain-- the strata was really amazing. This week, a pesky cold has been slowly kicking my butt. The week started off strong, I felt good Monday and Tuesday was a little iffy, and by Friday, all I wanted to do was stay in bed.

Fall Color Dahlia


Making: copious amounts of hot tea (earl grey!)
Cooking: I made some amazing gingersnap cookies this week. The recipe was from the back of a package of candied ginger and I didn't think to save it (or photograph them!) Ugh! I guess I will have to make them again! ;)
Drinking: Earl Grey Tea.
Reading: Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear  Still reading this! I need to sit down for more than 5 minutes and just read!
Wanting: to feel better. I seem to have caught a bug.
Looking: forward to feeling better.
Playing: Sim City on my ipad.
Wasting: time checking Facebook. Maybe 2016 will be Facebook free?
Wishing: my grandma was in better health.
Enjoying:  this sloth tea infuser! I saw it at target the other day and had to buy it!
Waiting:  for files from one hard drive (that I suspect is on it's last leg) to copy over to a new one (so! many! photos!)
Liking: everything in this etsy shop.
Loving: on my grandma this week.
Hoping: to feel better soon and take my mom to either the Wonderland Express at the Chicago Botanic Garden or the Morton Arboretum Illumination.
Needing: to pick up this brush letting guide.
Smelling: nothing much at the moment.
Wearing: multiple sweaters and slippers.
Noticing: the beauty in the the fog these past few morning.
Thinking: about my goals and plans for 2016.
Feeling: stuffy and poopy. I'm going back to bed.

I hope you're feeling well and have a great week!
