I like to do a stock take every so often, see what is going on, how it is all going. If you fancy having a stock take too, I have added a blank list at the end of this post. Thanks to Pip at Meet Me At Mikes for this Taking Stock list.
Here goes, digital biro at the ready….
Making : I am still crocheting my blanket, it may be done by 2020!
Cooking : Burgers and coleslaw for dinner.
Drinking : Lots of tea.
Reading: I have just started The Girl Who Slept with God by Val Brelinski and I am liking it so far. My library website recommends books based on what else you have searched and this came up when I ordered The Girls by Emma Cline and there is a very long line for it, so I thought I would give The Girl Who Slept with God a go and I am pleased I did. Hurrah for libraries!
Wanting: The weather to cool down, I am done with hot and humid. Done Done Done.
Looking: At an empty plate which just had a yummy slice of Malt Loaf on it.
Playing: Pokemon Go! My tween has it logged on my phone so I can walk his eggs. Honest, it isn’t mine.
Deciding: Which non fiction book to read next as part of #10pagesaday, I decided to read non fiction because I always borrow the books but I never read them. I have just finished Lisa Congdon’s Art Inc and now I need to decide between You are a Badass by Jen Sincero and Wired to Create by Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire. Have you read either of these? Any recommendations?
Wishing: For all of the ideas, for painting and art journaling and sketching.
Enjoying: Painting, art journaling and sketching!
Waiting: For the burgers to defrost for dinner.
Liking: The cool evenings and nights and looking forward to more.
Wondering: If it is going to rain?
Loving: Pilates. I am sure it has made a difference to my body shape, I don’t seem to have lost much weight, but I feel less wobbly!
Pondering: Colours, I love to choose colours of paint to use.
Considering: What to paint in my sketchbook, I try and make some art every day and I have not done anything today yet.
Buying: A ‘gooseneck’ phone holder/stand which hopefully will allow me to make videos from overhead. Can’t wait to play!
Watching: ‘Very British Problems’ on Netflix, it cracks me up!
Hoping: My fridge gets fixed soon, we are using a little tiny fridge at the minute which is better than nothing, but I am looking forward to chilling things with abandon!
Marvelling: At people who run in hot weather. It is all I can do to walk the dog without complaining, then I see someone running along like it is 50 degrees.
Cringing: At the presidential race.
Needing: A plan, I feel like I am getting all the ideas and I can’t form them into a plan.
Questioning: How four caterpillars appeared in the parsley patch seemingly from nowhere. #parsleysacrifice
Smelling: The tomato plants when I pick them every day, I just love the smell of tomato plants, it reminds me of my grandad’s greenhouse.
Wearing: Shorts and top. This is the first summer in the States I have worn shorts, I always used to wear capris and skirts, not wanting the legs out! This year the legs are out and I have been noticeably cooler. It only took me 13 years to embrace summer shorts!!
Following: Instagram stories and liking everyones little moments.
Noticing: Lots of butterflies swooping around.
Knowing: Project Runway season 15 starts this week! Yay.
Thinking: How noisy hummingbirds are for such tiny creatures, they buzz and squeak around my head when I am sitting on the porch.
Admiring: Anyone who is organized.
Sorting: Through photos to print and put in albums.
Getting: The winter clothes up from the basement, sorting and donating any I no longer want.
Bookmarking: Blogs to read.
Coveting: New boots for the winter.
Disliking: Computer games.
Opening: Magazines – Flow, Click, Vogue, Art Journaling.
Giggling: At the jokes one of the librarians tells me whenever I see him!
Snacking: On malt loaf and blackberries.
Helping: Myself to an ice cream!
Hearing: Computer games.
A list for you!
Happy Wednesday x
