Time // 10:15 am
Place // At work.
Eating // Nothing.
Drinking // Just finished my morning cup of coffee a few minutes ago.
Watching // The tech guy working on my computer. I’m getting “refreshed” today, which basically means after 3.5 years I finally got a new laptop to replace the slooooow brick my old one had become. But don’t fool yourself into thinking I now have some sort of top-of-the-line equipment — this is the government, after all! Getting a refresh is basically an all day process. Hence why I am blogging on my phone instead of working.
Reading // I’m still reading Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann. It was June’s book club selection, even though I was out of town for the discussion. I’m going to have to pause and jump to July’s book if I have any hope of finishing it before we meet on the 26th.
Wanting // An iPad. I want something I can watch video on while I’m on the treadmill, and I’ve been considering one for a while anyway. Plus I just got paid for the pageant program I did a few months ago, and obviously that money is burning a hole in my pocket.
Thinking // About a lot of depressing, what-is-this-world-coming-to things. I really should avoid watching the news.
Creating // I never made Emma a quilt before she was born, so I figured getting one done by her first birthday is the next best thing. I decided to stop agonizing over figuring out the perfect design — as long as I like it, she’ll like it. So this weekend I pulled out a bunch of fabric I already had but hadn’t identified a use for yet, and started cutting pieces! It’s going to be a pretty basic
Hoping // That this rainy weather continues for a few days. That’s probably a long shot, but after so much heat and sun, the clouds and slightly cooler temps are soooo nice.
Needing // To work on the program for the upcoming Miss Bay Area pageant. This is the last program I’m doing for them — after 5 years of pageant programs and websites, I’ve decided to move on.
Anticipating // Having a fun time with the NASA Social group on Wednesday! JSC is hosting a group of Twitter followers as well as several traditional media types for a combination social/media day with the Increment 37/Soyuz 36 crew. I’ll be helping out the entire day as part of a new work assignment (more on that soon!).
