… to trade in these pajamas for something more presentable. Is it bad that I dress, take the dog for a walk and then come home and get right back into my pajamas?
… to clean the bathrooms and mop the floor, because today, today I'm going to come when they say, "mama come look at (read/play/watch) this," and I'm not even going to say, "just a minute" first.
… to be able to pass an open window without pausing and smiling and breathing deeply of the cool autumn goodness. It must be a full 30 degrees cooler right now than it was yesterday!
… to flip through this stack of old magazines and put sticky notes on all the best fall recipes. What are your favorites?
… to assemble an autumn soundtrack. Just because. This time of year I feel like I need some Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Coltrane, something warm and rich. What are you listening to?
… to reacquaint myself with my camera. We've been missing each other.
… to make good use of my spanking new black drawing pen.
… to hug enough, hold enough, listen enough.
It might take me all day, or even all weekend, and that's good enough for me.
Have a great one y'all!
