tie a ribbon around your finger

things have been the busiest they've been in months around here. you can definitely feel the summer pace fading away...and a good change and energy is in the air. list making season is almost here! i love writing out lists, usually on random slips of paper that will inevitably get lost. but i try not to make any major ones during the summer. she always feels too rebellious for something like that. i got my planner out for the first time since may yesterday and realized it's time! lists for work goals, school supplies, weekend getaways, baking and crafting schemes, costume ideas, house to-dos! this gal needs a new pen to celebrate!

today is a list making kind of day.

happy late summer things list:  the smell of new pencils and open packs of paper, county fairs as far as the eye can see, evening thunderstorms that water the garden for you, homemade zucchini bread, the scramble to fit in last minute summery things, brown shoulders and funny tan lines, sunflowers standing at attention, sundresses and cardigans, music mixes of grizzly bear, and sea wolf, and stevie wonder, the promise of fall.

what's on your lists this week?

  1. i love those shoes. :)
    my list: too many yellow boy tomatoes, stitching up beautiful linen pants for fall, watching our pumpkins grow (hopefully in time for halloween!), late-evening runs, sitting outside at night with all the torches lit.

  9. What's not on my lists?!?! I can't believe summer is winding down. I've never worked so much and been so busy! So it goes. I'm off to SD for a photo shoot this week so my list includes packing and takin' photos.

  11. i love lists too. the feeling of being organized is just so calming and then crossing things off feels even better. i have a long to do list, coming back from studying abroad the past 2 months and thennn getting ready to go back to school.

    but my favorite thing right now on my i love summer list is watching the beautiful sunrises we've had lately. breathtaking.

  16. i've just blogged about notebooks and lists too! i love crossing stuff off when they're done, it's so satisfying! this week, i joined our local library, finished a novel, took some jeans back that didn't fit, & started hemming a dress :)

  17. "sundresses and cardigans, music mixes of grizzly bear, and sea wolf, and stevie wonder, the promise of fall." You couldn't have said it better! I wonder what it is that is so magical about lists!? i think maybe because they're almost like little tangible evidences of the dreams we have.:) love you blog!
