Taking Stock : January 2016

image

In an effort to bring some more of me to my blog and also as a way to stop and record where I am at from time to time, I am doing a “Taking Stock” blog post.

Making : Sketches and art journal pages
Cooking : Because I have to
Drinking : Orange Pekoe tea and water ( not enough water)
Reading: Girl on a train
Wanting: Someone else to cook dinner
Looking: At our cat sitting on the lap top bag
Playing: With colour and paper in my art journal
Deciding: On some days off so I can do more of the above
Enjoying: Warm summer afternoons and evenings
Waiting:
Liking: that I’m finally doing this post
Wondering: What I will cook for dinner
Loving: Swimming in the ocean
Pondering: My use of time
Considering: what to do while I wait for someone at tennis
Watching: Gilmore girls and Suits
Hoping: I will  get another swim in the ocean soon
Marvelling: At how Pip Lincolne came up with this list
Needing: To turn the rice cooker on
Smelling: Summer
Wearing: Yoga pants and a stripey t-shirt
Following:Mainly blogs of people I have connected with in BWP of Get Messy
Noticing: My Husband seems more like his old self
Knowing: We got through a really difficult time
Thinking: How fortunate I am/ we are
Feeling: Strangely calm
Admiring: people who get all the things done
Sorting: Emails and lists
Buying: A new mattress which feels like a cloud
Getting: Impatient to actually have mattress in my possession
Bookmarking: and being more organized about that!
Disliking: BAS statements ( tax stuff)
Opening: Snail mail is so much nicer than opening bills ( thanks Rebecca)
Giggling: I’m not much of a giggler, but I have been laughing
Feeling: Happy
Snacking: roasted almonds
Coveting: drawing ink
Wishing: I could write  blog posts a bit quicker
Helping: Miss 18 get some driving hours up
Hearing: My computer whirring

So that’s me for January, well it’s actually early Feb now, but that’s Ok.

  1. Happy to hear Steve is returning to his old self! Do you like Girl on a Train? I thought it was quite good – intriguing, easy and quick to read. Aaah, the driving hours…

    1. I am enjoying Girl on a train, I was in the mood for some holiday reading. I just seem to be so busy lately that I’m not reading much except for a few pages in bed each night! Yep, trying to get the hours up before we have another learner in the house!
