currently... February 2015 {the ponytail diaries}

loving | how the days are getting noticeably lighter. running with Onyx on the beach.

starting | like, five new short stories/potential novels

listening | I am throwing it back so hard to junior high and early high school. Matchbox Twenty, Third Eye Blind, Lifehouse, Phantom Planet, Our Lady Peace, Something Corporate, Jimmy Eat World…also, Stevie Nicks.

cooking | white chicken chili. chipotle stout chili. southwest chicken skillet. taco-baked ziti. grilled salmon w/avocado salsa. sausage pepper fettucini skillet. everything has been so good.

watching | reruns, reruns, Downton Abbey, reruns, Gotham, Friends on Netflix (of course), reruns

eating | all the avocados (Husband’s bosses have a small grove. We are benefiting.)

hoping | our latest homebrew comes out (we’ll find out in…four weeks or so?). for an office chair with a proper back (right now I sit on a stability ball and I’m so over it). that one day I’ll wake up and all my clothes will be folded and/or hung up neatly (a laundry fairy, basically).

hiking | Cowles, Cedar Creek Falls, more Cowles.

drinking | $5 wine from Trader Joe’s

bookmarking/pinning/tweeting/sharing | these thoughts on overwhelm. these thoughts on not settling. this list of awesome blogs for writers. these new ways of evaluating your days. Zac Brown Band’s new video. this Q&A on creativity. these brownies (unfortunately i failed at drying out our grains enough to make flour). this gorgeous cowl pattern. this DIY i’m actually gonna D. this must-hike. this ode to the great goddess that is stevie nicks.
