It’s that time of the year, or the month, or just the morning when I’ve suddenly been taken over by the need to take stock……Is it the winterish blues I wonder?
Making : this crochet rug in a bid to use up all the leftover yarn from last year’s crafty efforts. It’s called the oblong story blanket. I’m not sure yet whether I’ll bother with the pom poms.
Cooking : Not much at all but I am planning to make soup FROM SCRATCH on Friday.
Drinking : Tea, chai, water. That’s it really. My go to beverages.
Reading: Lots of articles on the interwebs about USA politics and then despairing.
Trawling: through articles about makerspaces and redesigned school libraries.
Wanting: a new Radley handbag but being financially responsible and holding out.
Looking: forward to spending some days in Brisbane early next week.
Deciding: what to wear every day in what passes for winter here in the subtropics. I’ll give you a hint. No cardigan required.
Wishing: I could get used to my new glasses without feeling queasy.
Enjoying: the luxury of time.
Waiting: for my Princess Leia Baccurelli brooch to arrive in the post. It’s been AGES. #firstworldproblemobviously
Liking: my new Everest violin shoulder rest. So comfy.
Considering: starting a podcast with a friend.
Wondering: if there are already too many podcasts in the world
Loving: the sunny days
Pondering: whether and when to get a new cat……
Listening: to the birds chattering away outside this morning
Buying: Milk and mandarins yesterday at Aldi.
Watching: let’s see….Glow on Netflix, Will and Grace on Stan, the Office (US) from ITunes, Doctor Who on ABCTV, Ronny Chieng International Student on ABCTV…..other things…..
Hoping: the last remnants of this cold finally disappear in the next few days. It’s been a month.
Marvelling: at the cuteness of my baby nephew!
Cringing: at Trump, Trump always Trump.
Needing: to change my violin strings
Questioning: just why I thought it was a good idea to enter the footy tipping at work. Such a pain every week. Perhaps it would be better if I actually followed the football? Who can say?
Smelling: my lemon and sage shampoo
Wearing: a grey linen and rose top, 7/8 jeans bought in New Zealand. I’m quite the fashion plate.
Noticing: the ache in my hip….from too much sitting
Knowing: I need to up the exercise.
Thinking: I need to do some violin practice
Admiring: People who are intrepid, brave and not scaredy cats.
Getting: thirsty for a cuppa.
Bookmarking: see Trawling (above)
Disliking: my endless FB checking on my phone. Solution: FB app deleted for a bit.
Opening: bills, bills, bills. They never stop.
Closing: my old income protection insurance policy despite that relentless efforts of the guy on the phone to convince me to keep it yesterday afternoon. I was kind but very firm.
Feeling: mostly content. Can we ask for much more than that?
Hearing: the traffic humming out on the main road
Celebrating: being on holidays for a week or two.
Pretending: I’m about to do the washing up when really I’m going to leave it until later.
Embracing: my addiction to new shoes.
