I haven’t done Taking Stock for a while.
I think I have been busying myself hanging out and admiring the view and having quiet and fun times and just staying on top of work and fam. But enough of that. Well… just for a tick. It’s time to take my own pulse, doing and feeling and being-style!
(Maybe you want to do this too?! You can just write it longhand in a notebook – or cut and paste to Facebook, Instagram or a blog! Get cracking!)
Taking Stock: April 2016
Making : A scarf
Cooking : Lots of things, as usual!
Drinking : Copious amounts of tea
Reading: Mango and Mimosa (still!)
Wanting: One month fully paid holidays
Looking: At our pretty view
Deciding: Whether to go and buy more chunky yarn or not
Wishing: The yarn shop was closer
Waiting: For a good letter to arrive
Liking: Going to bed earlier than usual
Wondering: If this heavy lunged, heavy limbed feeling is something brewing
Loving: The Durrells! I cried I loved it so much! Tears of yay!
Pondering: Some ace projects I want to get moving on
Considering: How this year will pan out
Buying: The weekly shop (we are trying to shop less and shop better!)
Watching: Rosemary and Thyme. I love those ladies and I love the houses/gardens/mysteries/music
Hoping: Ari gets up soon… it’s 2.30pm!
Marvelling: At how quickly Autumn is suddenly making its presence felt
Cringing: At Trump
Needing: A soy chai with honey. A cake date with Michelle Mackintosh.
Questioning: Whether I might need to see a doctor about these (possibly) thyroid-y symptoms
Wearing: A t-shirt dress with a glittery tiger on it
Following: New (to me) people on Instagram : Hannah Bullivant, Emma Bradshaw, Emily Caruso
Noticing: A lot of birds in the garden. The other night we even had a Tawny Frogmouth.
Knowing: That the weekend will not be long enough for me!
Thinking: About joining the local library (not just the city one)
Admiring: A lot of things on the Notemaker site. I bought myself a sneaky present last night.
Sorting: Out the pantry on the weekend because… pantry moths!
Getting: Too obsessed with this popcorn. Yum!
Bookmarking: This and this. Spice me up!
Coveting: An exciting opportunity. New Gilmore Girls.
Opening: Fresh embroidery floss
Giggling: At Melissa McCarthy on Jimmy Fallon. ALL OF THE GLITTER!
Feeling: Like a piece of cake
Snacking: On POPCORN! Duh!
Helping: My students learn things they want to learn
Hearing: The dog digging in the pebbly bit of the garden
You can make a list too, if you want to! I’d love to read it! Let me know if you do this too! M’kay.
Let me know if you do this too?!
