I thought it was high time I stopped talking about my book for a while and started talking about all the other stuff that’s been going on around here… Let’s do that!
Making : brownies
Cooking : soup
Drinking : copious amounts of tea
Reading: A Table In The Orchard
Wanting: a holiday
Looking: forward to seeing some friends
Playing: the Six Feet Under Soundtrack
Deciding: how to cook the brisket we bought at the market
Wishing: the weekends were three days long, every single week
Enjoying: cosy times
Waiting: to see how Ari felt about his maths test
Liking: the fragrance in my house. I have lots of flowers this week!
Wondering: why my wrist is playing up when I’m ready to crochet
Loving: sleeping really well, two nights in a row
Pondering: plans for Sunday (Mothers’ Day!)
Considering: where we will move to
Buying: lots of vegetables at the market, we’re making minestrone!
Hoping: to get lots of crochet in on the weekend
Marvelling: at Max’s new turtle. He’s called Pup.
Cringing: when I think of packing up my books and crafty things
Needing: to get rid of lots of things
Questioning: the way real estate agents treat commercial tenants (always rude and disinterested!)
Smelling: flowers, flowers, yay!
Wearing: ugg boots, striped shirt, blue tartan dress, tights and boots. (Also undies!)
Following: my eCourse students’ progress
Noticing: the builders in our laneway are ridiculously good looking and nice
Knowing: the year is going to whizz by
Thinking: about an upcoming event I’m doing with some amazing speakers. Shhhh! It’s a secret still.
Admiring: Myu and Andrew’s families for their strength under great scrutiny.
Sorting: things. All of the things.
Getting: sleepy – it’s that time of the afternoon
Bookmarking: Covet Garden and this great post on Seth Godin’s blog
Coveting: some more new cushions (funny when you get new ones, you realise how worn out the old ones are!)
Disliking: treading in dog poop
Opening: too many tabs on my computer
Giggling: at my fave radio show, The Breakfasters.
Feeling: lucky to have been so well looked after at the book signing I did on Wednesday night.
Snacking: on coconut and raspberry tarts
Helping: Max read the turtle’s mind. (The turtle is feeling shy, but liking our house so far.)
Hearing: That there is no band practice today.
And here’s a blank list for you to copy and paste so you CAN join in…
