Hanging Lake

Making: Tonight: Salted Caramel Milkshake. Like I need this, but whatever.
Drinking: Ice water. Exciting times around her.
Reading: Beneath the Bonfire // Nikolas Butler
Coveting: This DIY cat litter contraption. And it’s Ikea! I recently adopted two new cats, bringing the total to four. Brilliant.
Listening: Twilight / William Gay
Watching: Daredevil. SO excited.
Smelling: Absolutely nothing (see feeling)
Wishing:  For summer! I’m tentatively going to Lake Tahoe.
Enjoying: This easy pasta series. I LOVE pasta. Love it.
LovingFelt ball (pom pom) Garland. I feel like I should be more mature than this. But I’m not.
Needing: Cough drops. I am not pleased.
Feeling: Sick. I have the flu. This may be the hardest part about working with the public. And I feel like this year has been particularly brutal.
Wearing: ALL the flannel. Still. I don’t have a thing, but if I did it would be flannel. Angela Chase style. (Yeah, I’m never changing this answer.)
Wanting: Sleep! I recently moved my littlest out of his crib and he discovered that he can get out of bed. A 3am. And 4am. And…you get the idea.
Hiking: Throwing this one in here because the photo above was taken on a recent hike up to Hanging Lake.

So how have you been lately? Anyone else have four cats and feel one step away from crazy cat lady?

    1. I think we’re going towards the end of June and I’m so excited. It’s one of those places that’s driving distance (though a long one – 15 hours of so), we just never think of it. It looks gorgeous.


  1. How about 3 cats, a dog, and 2 guinea pigs? Kinda wish I had 4 cats instead – dogs are so much more work. (I love him, though, really.)
    I have to stop clicking on any recipe links you put up. Now, I want pasta and milkshakes for breakfast. Which wouldn’t be so bad, except that I don’t have any of the ingredients. 🙂


  2. What a gorgeous picture – must have been a fantastic hike. How’s Beneath the Bonfire? I loved Shotgun Lovesongs and don’t think it got the love it deserved…and I just got my ARC of Beneath the Bonfires, but haven’t started it yet. And – we also just moved my oldest to the big bed and had a similar problem – ours was crazy early morning wake-ups. But, got him a clock that lights up green when he can get out of bed…then he gets something taken away if he gets out before green and a treat if he stays in. It’s taken a long time, but I think it’s starting to work 🙂


  3. Beautiful photo! My husband and hiked to Hanging Lake back when we were in college and lived in Colorado. We have the coolest frame-worthy picture of us standing out on a log in the lake… except he’s blinking! Sigh.

    A salted caramel milkshake sounds delicious! I will definitely be checking out that recipe.
