Time to follow the fine example of Pip at Meet me at Mikes and Take Stock I think, so let’s see what I am up to today.
I have put a blank list at the end for you to Take Stock too.
Making : Granny squares! I have 11 so far, I hope I manage enough for a blanket.
Cooking : Banana, peanut butter, chocolate chip bread for breakfast treats!
Drinking : A slightly cold cup of tea, I need an insulated mug.
Reading: Flow magazine and Art of Everyday Photography by Susan Tuttle, I am inbetween novels, looking for one I like. Any ideas?
Wanting: My copy of ‘Craft for the Soul’ to arrive, I am so excited to see Pip’s new book
Looking: Outside at the rain.
Playing: The soundtrack from St Vincent on Spotify.
Deciding: Which clothes to take on holiday next month.
Wishing: For a pause in the rain so we can get home from school and stay dry.
Enjoying: The cooler weather, even if it is raining.
Waiting: For the mail, I wonder if there will be anything interesting?
Liking: That I am managing to crochet something which doesn’t look like a disaster made from yarn!
Wondering: What to make next.
Loving: My garden which is growing all over the green place.
Pondering: How tall the sunflowers will grow this year.

Hoping: I find a good book to read on holiday.
Marvelling: At how green everything is outside.

Questioning: Every decision I make and I need to stop it.
Smelling: The lilac bushes and honeysuckle as I walk through the woods on the way to school.
Wearing: Top, leggings and wellies, ready for a wet walk.
Following: My 10 year old as he zooms ahead on his skateboard, then stops to show me a few tricks. Love it.
Noticing: How kids can speed along on a small board with wheels without a care in the world.
Knowing: I would most likely break something if I tried to skateboard!
