Taking Stock January 2018

IMG_4295

First stock take of the year.  Inspired by the lovely Pip at Meet me at Mikes blog, if you want to take your own stock, there is a blank list of starting words at the end of this post.

These posts are a fun way to see what is going on and they are great to look back on and see what you were up to at the time.

Here goes –

Making :  Mandalas in my sketchbook.

Cooking : Chicken tikka masala for dinner.

Drinking : Nothing, but now I want a cup of tea.

Reading: Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin and Future Home of the Living God by Louise Erdrich.

Wanting: A cup of tea, hold on while I put the kettle on…..

Looking: At my kids doing homework as I write this.

Playing: With my new/old typewriter now it has a shiny new ribbon.

Deciding: What to wear for work.

Wishing: My clothes ironed themselves!

Enjoying: My part time job at the local library.

Waiting: For the dishwasher to finish.

Liking: The new layers in my hair.

Wondering: Shall I make cinnamon muffins?

Loving:  ‘Episodes’ on Netflix.

Pondering: Whether to invest on some gouache paints or stick to watercolors for now.

Considering: What to do this weekend.

Buying: New noodle bowls (hopefully, I saw them today and I WANT them!)

Watching: Lisa Congdon’s daily class on Creative Bug.

Hoping: For a nice weekend of weather.

Marvelling: At all the things to learn.

Cringing: At the crazy things people do to make a video.

Needing: Lip balm.

Questioning: Why I haven’t cleared more clutter out of our basement.

Smelling: Tuberose essential oil.

Wearing: Jeans and sweatshirt.

Following: Lots of new blogs on Bloglovin’ and trying to be a good bloggy pal by reading them all.

Noticing: How nice the table looks when it is clear and polished.

Knowing: I need to learn iMovie.

Thinking: Constant ideas, I have to write them all in a little book!

Admiring: All the clever creative people.

Sorting: Book covers to make myself an art journal.

Getting: Excited to make a new art journal.

Bookmarking: Pages in magazines as I slowly read them. I buy magazines then don’t give myself time to read them!

Coveting: Old photos and postcards.

Disliking: Super dry overheated winter air.

Opening: A box of parchment paper to make muffin cases as I have run out!

Giggling: At ‘Project Runway Allstars’ new season.

Feeling: A bit chilly.

Snacking: On Penguin biscuits.

Helping: Anyone I can and needs my help.

Hearing: All the podcasts, I am liking ‘How She Creates’ and ‘Radiolab’ at the moment.

Here is your list and happy Friday x
