This taking stock snuck up on me, so when I looked at my editorial calendar and realised it was time for another taking stock post, I was really pleased.
I find these posts make me stop and think, give thanks and be grateful for all that has been happening in my world.
and all really is good in my world at the moment
Making: simple, pretty and affordable earrings to pop in at Walcha Handmade
Cooking: rice for dinner tonight. Just not sure what is going to go with it
Drinking: water, water and more water
Reading: Richard Fidler’s Ghost Empire. It was recommended and loaned to me by a work colleague, and he really knows his books
Wanting: that weekend away still…
Looking: at all of the new blooms in the garden
Playing: Michael Buble in the CD player. Boy, that man can sing
Deciding: 24-70 lens? 50mm f/1.4? 35mm f/2? I. Don’t. Know.
Wishing: someone would give me a definitive answer to the above
Enjoying: having the bed to myself lately
Waiting: for the next season of Walking Dead. Only a week to go!
Liking: avocado and vegemite on toast
Wondering: why I didn’t start doing daily yoga much sooner
Loving: sitting outside in the sun at lunchtime and getting my dose of Vitamin D
Pondering: the future
Watching: Tiny Luxury on Sunday nights. I love the concept of tiny houses, and hope to one day live in one myself
Hoping: for a quiet weekend. Last weekend was busy, and it’s heading into that stupid-crazy-busy time of year
Marvelling: at how good I feel for my daily morning yoga practice
Needing: a weekend away from the mountain (there’s a theme happening here…)
Smelling: the neroli and patchouli candle that is currently burning (thanks, Vela girls!)
Wearing: jeans to work, and having the kids notice
Following: the Daughter’s travels on Instagram
Noticing: the little things
Knowing: that tomorrow will be another day, and what didn’t get done from the to-do list will still be waiting
Thinking: about dinner
Feeling: tired a lot lately
Admiring: dark and moody photos on Instagram
Sorting: through e-books and putting the printed versions away in folders
Buying: a sit-stand stool for my standing desk. Although I love standing while I work, it really does put a lot of stress on your legs
Getting: ready for the Walcha Central School Art Fete and Fair. I’m having a stall there and will be marking down lots of old jewellery stock, so drop by and have a look!
Bookmarking: where I am up to in my book…
Disliking: that someone snapped off at ground level the newly planted trees in Middle Street. Why?
Giggling: with a friend who emptied her water bottle while checking her watch – haven’t had such a good laugh in a long time, and it still makes me smile to think of it
Snacking: on caramel slice from Cafe Graze – thanks, girls!
Coveting: a weekend away somewhere. Anywhere…
Wishing: on a star
Helping: out whenever I can
Hearing: the birds twittering in the bush at the back window
In the comments, I’d love to hear:
What is good and grand in your world right now?
