I am currently home in Ohio for a bit and I am loving it.My boyfriend and I were supposed to be in California this week driving up the coast but we had to postpone it because of some business stuff that came up for him. I'm looking forward to the trip!
LISTENING: I am working outside and hear the cicadas buzzing. The weather here is much more pleasant than Florida is right now. I am enjoying every second of it.
LOVING: Being home with my family. I am missing them a whole lot! Labor day weekend is a great weekend to visit my hometown. There is a parade, an arts and crafts festival, a big festival at my alma mater high school. It's my grandpa's 81st birthday and we always have a big cookout at Grandma and Grandpa's house. This year my mom and I made LOTS of soup for my grandpa. He has been complaining about too much vegetable soup. Grandma loves vegetable soup and she keeps making it. He thinks it has too much meat but he won't make his own soup. It's a neverending battle. Last time I was there Grandpa had bought a whole soup catalog with 250 soup recipes. The message was clear: The man wants soup. Now he can keep them in the freezer and have them whenever he wants!
THINKING: I've been thinking about a big change to come in my life... Sometimes you have to make tough choices and that's where I am right now. Send positive vibes!
WANTING: Yeah, if someone could just clean my apartment for me, that'd be great. Thanks.
NEEDING: I have been brainstorming and writing some poems for my fall poetry book, but I need to knock it out! Maybe this time in Ohio will allow me that!
3 TRIPS: San Francisco, my boyfriend and I have some good friends there and that was supposed to be our final stop in our Cali trip. I've only stopped by San Fran when I was working on an organic vineyard in northern California a couple summers ago. I could tell it was a place I wanted to go back! One of our friends works at Google and we are going to take a tour. :)
Italy, I would love to eat all of Italy. Yum.
Costa Rica, I would love to go there! Pura Vida!
