Recently I came across this lovely post from Pip of Meet Me At Mikes called Taking Stock. I thought it would be a nice way to help myself slow down and take notice. So with the help of the list provided by Pip here's what my world looks like lately.
Making : Im taking part in Andi Satterlund’s MarionKAL. Hoping to finish it off this week with a few days to spare… Hoping being the key word there.
Cooking : Cheesymite scrolls for my boy
Drinking : Ginger and lemongrass tea
Reading: Old Frankie magazines
Wanting: To bake an Anzac cake
Looking: At the blossom tree in the yard
Playing: With empty toilet rolls. Yep really. According to Eddie they are the best toy ever today!
Deciding: Which knitting project to cast on after my Marion.
Considering: Knitting a cardigan from a self designed pattern. Perhaps I should make a start on this instead of casting on something else.
Wishing: That I could be at home with Eddie everyday
Enjoying: Getting things organised to make a Sewaholic Rae Skirt for summer. Fabric washed, just need to trace out the pattern and I’m ready to go
Waiting: For my Quince & Co order to arrive. (It arrived just as I finished writing this post. YUSS!)
Loving: Etsy. Thankfully most things I love are from the U.S and the postage is way too expensive otherwise we would be very poor. I love to look and be inspired by all the loveliness though.
Listening: To The Jezabels, Prisoner
Watching: The return episodes of The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and Once Upon a Time. So pleased the new seasons are back.
Hoping: Eddie eats his dinner tonight and doesn't pif it on the floor.
Marvelling: Woman who return to work after having children and are as alert and switched on as what they were before having children. Its been a year back at work for me and my brain still feels mushy.
Needing: To fold the washing. Blugh
Smelling: Incense that is burning on my window cill
Wearing: My Monetta dress
Following: Mandarines on instagram
Noticing: That all of a sudden its almost Christmas again… when did that happen?
Knowing: I need to change the protective cover on my phone screen. I can hardly see through it anymore its so scratched.
Thinking: That I’d like to blog a bit more than I do. I enjoy it so I should make the time.
Admiring: The no dig garden bed my friend helped me to make for this years tomatoes.
Sorting: All the fabric on my sewing room floor.
.Getting: Some more pea straw to make another no dig garden bed
Bookmarking: Everything I can find on harvesting onions and garlic
Disliking: That my eyesight has changed again and I need new glasses. I really like my old glasses but it’s cheaper to get new ones from Bonlook than getting the lenses replaced in my old ones at the local optometrist.
Opening: My parcel from Quince & Co
Giggling: With Eddie about everything and anything
Feeling: Like I’ll never have the energy I used to again. I know this isn’t true. I mean it cant be….right? I cant feel tired forever can I?
Coveting: My sister in laws new Sims 4 game. I don't usually like games but I do very much like playing Sims.
Wishing: That there wasn't always little fingerprints on my specs. Though I suspect that one day I'll actually miss this
Helping: Eddie make snakes out of his play dough
Hearing: The dog snore. Its a bit chilly today so he's snoozing inside
So thats me for the moment. If you feel like Taking Stock Pip provides a list here you can use or you can just make up your own. If you do decide to Take Stock and want to share let me know, I'd love to see your list too!
