Images sourced via The Galapagos Affair: Satan Comes To Eden – such a crazy/cool documentary!
I thought it might be a good time to stop and take stock. So here goes…
Making : a blanket (quel surprise!)
Cooking : my favourite breakfast at the moment: a 2 egg omelette with zucchini, red onion, mushrooms and tomatoes – sprinkled with spices, a little bit of vinegar and a slosh of oil
Drinking : herbal tea – blackcurrant, chamomile and peppermint mostly – I’m trying to ease up on the caffeine a bit because my body was feeling a bit creaky at the end of last year and maybe a bit of restraint will help.
Reading: I just finished Lost & Found by Brooke Davis. I loved it. Three fantastic characters ricocheting across the country together.
Wanting: a table because Ari ‘borrowed’ mine and took it upstairs. All the things that were on my table are on the floor now.
Looking: at lovely, drizzly grey skies. I know some people love the heat of Summer, but I like milder days.
Playing: a game with myself – watching movies themed around adventure, survival, bravery and discovery.
Deciding: where we might like to live next. Our lease is finally up in September. A new adventure for us.
Wishing: I had less stuff
Enjoying: this beautiful new year
Waiting: for this book I pre-ordered to arrive
Liking: rockmelon/canteloupe – whatever you call it, when it’s ripe and sweet it’s perfect.
Wondering: How long I can make this final day of the long weekend last
Loving: lying on the couch
Pondering: whether to keep my studio or move it back home
Considering: handwriting drills. My writing is so messy!
Watching: this movie. So weird and wonderful.
Hoping: to get some new yarn today. I’ve used up all my fave colours.
Marvelling: at the days zooming by already. I’m trying to make plans to make the best of them.
Needing: to get dressed at some point, before I waste the day away.
Smelling: rain and coffee
Wearing: favourite op-shopped yoga pants
Following this new-to-me blog
Noticing: I have a crush on James Nesbit
Knowing: I need to deal with all the things on the floor today
Thinking: I need to be writing my new book, but it’s so hard to write during the busy school holidays
Admiring: people who don’t need applause
Sorting: in my mind. In my mind I’m sorting the whole house out, but I’m not actually doing it.
Buying: very little. It’s over-rated and I have too much already.
Getting: excited that my book is about to be set free (and also nervous).
Bookmarking: this and this
Disliking: the smell of nutmeg and vitamins
Opening: the front door a lot. We have so many visitors!
Giggling: at Jimmy Fallon. I like watching him after dinner most nights (esp the ‘thank you’ segment!)
Feeling: amazed that my baby is fifteen
Snacking: on Natural Tucker brownies
Coveting: neater eyebrows
Wishing: we didn’t call this day Australia Day
Helping: Ari get prepared for the new school year
Hearing: swishing tyres on the damp road outside
And here’s a blank list for you to copy and paste (in case you want to join in)
Hope you are well. See you soon!
