Taking Stock May 2014

image Today I have a little list to complete.  Pip at Meet me at Mikes came up with the master list and I have included a blank list at the end of the post, fancy a go?

So on this final day of school for my third and seventh graders, here are my thoughts in list form.  I love a list don’t you?

Making : Frothy coffee.
Cooking : Roast cauliflower and lentil curry seems to be my go-to meal of the moment.
Drinking : More water, need to drink more water.
Reading:  The Goldfinch. Still. It is taking me ages, nearly finished though.
Wanting:  Activity ideas for the summer break.
Looking: At the pile of magazines I need to read.
Playing:  Catch in the back garden and trying not to destroy any sunflowers with stray throws!
Deciding: What to do over the summer…
Wishing:  For some rain on the garden.
Enjoying:  Snow cones on a hot day.
Waiting:  To meet the kids at lunchtime as their last day at school is a half day.
Liking: Making new jewelry and wearing it.
Wondering:  Which book to read next?  Got a recommendation?
Loving:  The sunshine and the clouds floating by.
Pondering: Whether to change my jewelry name to Girl Fifteen or keep CatsEatDogs?
Considering:  Whether to get up early tomorrow and check out a yard sale locally?
Watching:  ‘An Idiot Abroad’ on Netflix.
Hoping: Season two of ‘Derek’ (on Netflix also) is as good as the first.
Marvelling: Our growing garden and sunflowers.
Needing:  String to tie the beans plants to their poles so they get the hang of climbing upwards.
Smelling: Honeysuckle as we walk to school.
Wearing:  My favourite striped maxi skirt and elephant t shirt.
Following:  Tinkerlab and Artchoo for all of their amazing ideas and art activities.
Noticing:  How dry my skin is feeling no matter how much moisturiser I slap on.
Knowing: More every day.
Thinking:  What to do with my old blog?
Feeling:  In need of a hair cut.
Admiring:  People with lovely grey hair (I am letting mine go natural/grey).
Sorting: Photos to put in my Project Life album.
Buying: Vintage beads and buttons whenever I find them.
Getting: Ready to list new jewels on Etsy.
Bookmarking: Photography tips whenever I find them.
Disliking: The humidity which I have to look forward to until about October! Phew.
Opening: My diary to see what I need to do today.
Giggling: At The Steve Wright Show which I am listening to on the BBC iPlayer over the interweb from the UK.
Feeling: Lucky.
Snacking: On Sweet Olive Oil Torta ‘Torta de Aceite’ from Spain, very delicious, wonder where I can get more?
Coveting: A fixed lens for my big girl camera.
Wishing: For successes everyday.
Helping: My neighbour mow her grass.
Hearing: The dog snore and music from the radio

 

Here’s the blank list…go!

  1. Love your list! Snowcones on a hot day… it is the opposite season here and I confess I am a little jealous that you have the whole school holidays stretching out ahead of you. What a great feeling!

    • Hi Rachel, I like that we are opposite seasons, bit confusing though! Like the time difference. I follow lots of Southern Hemisphere blogs and I love learning lots of geography as well as enjoying the blogs.

  2. Love your list Clare. I like Girl Fifteen, I think you should go with that. And keep going with project silver fox 🙂

    • Hi Michelle, project silver fox is at least an inch underway. I am very happy with my new blog too, couldn’t have done it without Blog with Pip, I know that for sure.

    Hi Clare, great list ! I would love your Roast Cauliflower and lentil curry – sounds scrumptious. How good is the series of Derek, one of my favourite shows of all time. Book recommendations – I am reading “Love in the Outback” by Deb Hunt which is wonderful.

    • The curry is a winner every time, in fact I am about to roast a cauliflower for tonight! I will look up the book as I am nearly done with The Goldfinch. x
