One of my all time favorite pictures.  The Butchart Gardens, 2008

Reading  Nothing at the moment. A couple magazines, and a few blog posts. But I did finally finish Wildwood! I'm just going to ignore the fact that it took me over a month. Oh, and my friend Molly finished it before me, so since we were having a little competition, you can expect to see a guest post from her soon!
Writing  Not much. This week has been so busy, I didn't get much done for posts. I have some things that have been in the works for a while, and they just need some finishing touches. Hopefully these next couple of weeks will be better, and I'll start getting some of them posted!
Listening  I've talked about him before, but I've been listening to a lot of Ed Sheeran lately. I just love his album +! I usually listen to it about once a day, or more. I've also been listening to some hymns, both singing and piano covers. Some days, those are just what I need to hear.
Thinking  Too much. I have a bad habit of letting my mind get away from me sometimes, and it's not too great. I'm trying to do better though, and to keep my thoughts on the positive things, not the negative.
Smelling  Nothing. My nose is plugged up again! I guess it's just one of those years. Hopefully this is the last time I get it though, because by the fifth time, I'm over it.
Wishing  That the sun would come out! It's been a bit dreary lately, but I suppose that's what spring is all about. At least everything is turning extra green!
Hoping  That it won't be too rainy next weekend. That's when my 5k race is! It starts at seven in the morning, so that will be a little rough, since it's a half hour's drive away in the first place. I'm excited though, and it should be fun.
Loving  That I finally bought some hydrangea bushes, after several years of saying that I would. I just go slow like that I guess. I was going to plant them this weekend, but I did some research and read that you should plant them after the threat of frost. Well, we are having at least three nights this week with mid to low thirty degree temps! So, I will be waiting at least a couple weeks before putting them in the ground.
Wanting  Like the last time I wrote one of these, I really want to start using my camera more. It's just a little point and shoot, but I would like to learn some of the tweaks and tips you can use to take better photos, instead of just always shooting on auto. I just need to take the time to sit down and do it. I would love to get a better camera someday, but I know it won't happen for a while, so I need to just make do with the one that I have!
Needing  To get back on track with my eating. Last week I had a couple of not so great days, and one really, really bad day that I paid for by being sick all day yesterday! Wow, that was a lot of use of the word "day." Anyway, I feel like I'm learning a lesson in moderation, so hopefully I can just get back on track.
Feeling  Pretty busy, a little stressed, and honestly kind of anxious these days. For those of you that deal with anxiety too, you know what I'm talking about. I'm feeling optimistic though, and I know better than to let it get me down!
Clicking  On several things. I've been on Pinterest a lot lately, and that's been fun! I also loved this post by Dana, over at The Wonder Forest. It really inspires me to get some lawn work/landscaping done! And then there's good old Netflix! We've been loving that season five of Mad Men is finally available. The only bummer is finishing them, and having to wait a whole other year for season six! So, we're trying not to burn through them too quickly.

Linking up this morning with Lauren!
