How are you? I am okay. I won’t talk about the cough and the other ills. It’s getting boring. Instead I am going to talk about the other stuff I’ve been up to over the last week or so. A little Taking Stock snapshot before the month kisses us goodbye…
Making : painted bangles and leaves and things
Cooking : toast because I love toast
Drinking : sweet, bracing, not too milky but not un-milky tea
Reading: my diary – there’s lots to do and it’s all in there
Wanting: a sabbatical… a nice long one!
Looking: at that gap under our front door where the breeze comes in
Playing: the Six Feet Under soundtrack in the car (perhaps too much!)
Deciding: on the projects we are going to make at the Big Hearted Business Creative Retreat
Wishing: this stupid cough would bugger off
Enjoying: crocheting a pop-py blanket
Waiting: for a few packages to arrive… lots of hoops, thread and books for starters
Liking: sitting next to the heater
Wondering: how the year has gone by so quickly
Loving: getting up early and watching Dexter on the couch with blankets up to my chin
Pondering: the cover ideas for my new book
Considering: when I might be well enough to start running again
Watching: Um. DEXTER!
Hoping: to travel light to the Gold Coast on Thursday
Marvelling: at how much I can do even if I do feel crap
Needing: to drink lots of juice (my friend Hailey’s suggestion!)
Smelling: not much. stuffy nose!
Wearing: this dress all the time and these shoes
Following: this blog
Noticing: how quickly my hair grows
Knowing: we’re having roast chicken for dinner
Thinking: cold and flu pills are demonic, but sometimes they really do work
Buying: Japanese craft books like it’s 2007
Getting: excited to hang out in a hotel room for a couple of nights
Bookmarking: this post
Disliking: stupid coughing
Opening: all of the emails and FB messages… so many of them!
Giggling: at this
Snacking: on rice crackers. Do you like those? I do.
Coveting: this dress
Wishing: time would slow down a bit!
Helping: my students
Hearing: the 112 go past my house
A blank list for you to copy to your own blog or journal, in case you want to…
Hope you are not sick like me. Are you having nice times? What are you up to?
