On The Eve Of Finishing NaNoWriMo…

I found this great post prompt on Meet Me At Mike’s blog, which I discovered via The Daybook in this post. The evening after Thanksgiving and before NaNoWriMo wraps up is made for writing, pinning, and blog-hopping. And a little blogging, too.

Making :  space in the house for the changing season.
Cooking : Armenian choregs — my grandmother’s recipe. I just learned how to do it and I’m trying to perfect my dough-rolling and braiding technique.
Drinking : SO much Numi green tea.
Reading : The Highly Sensitive Person: How To Thrive When The World Overwhelms You by Elaine Aron
Wanting : a large, super soft camel-colored blanket scarf.
Looking : at the clock. I’ll be done with my first 5k in 12 hours.
Playing : with my dog because it’s just good for the soul.
Wasting : time on Pinterest before my morning writing sessions.
Sewing : lolz
Wishing : there was an extra day in the week, or a few more hours in a day.
Enjoying : the peppermint mocha lattes from Starbucks.
Waiting : for tomorrow — I will finish NaNoWriMo with 50,000 words of my manuscript complete AND run my first 5k. Someone get this girl a strong drink.
Liking : soft clothing.
Wondering : how many Himalayan salt lamps one person can own before it’s considered “too many.”
Loving : my husband’s photography. That man has talent. 
Hoping : December is good to me.
Marvelling : at yogis who can do inversions. Amazing.
Needing : more face time with my friends.
Smelling : cloves and cinnamon — I bought some supplies today to make this.
Wearing : fancy (AKA fitted) sweatpants and plaid.
Following : so many new bloggers on Instagram and Pinterest.
Noticing : how people are killing it on social media (or NOT killing it.)
Knowing : that somewhere in the world, Jennifer Lawrence is being awesome.
Thinking : about my best friend in Spain and how I need to write her a letter. (We’re pen pals and it’s the greatest thing we’ve ever done since memorizing ‘NSYNC dance moves after school together.)
Bookmarking : posts on running (because, whoa, I’m a runner now.)
Opening : my Moleskin journal on Sunday when NaNo is done.
Giggling : meh. Who giggles, really? I’m more of a laugher.
Feeling : really accomplished, and really excited to run a 5k and hit 50,000 words tomorrow. Two big milestones at once!
