Another taking stock post - a quick way to catch up with what's been going on around here.
Firstly though - a super moon. Has it been lovely in your part of the world? Although I didn't take this photo, I certainly enjoyed the glow last night.
So what's been happening?
Making: pathetic attempts at crochet granny squares. Still knitting squares in a variety of patterns. One day I will crochet together.
Cooking: made chicken parmigiana last night. Easy leftovers tonight.
Drinking : English Breakfast w skim milk. Some things are constant.
Reading: Simon Beckett’s new novel Stone Bruises. Liking it.
Looking: through window at lovely blue sky morning
Deciding: which jobs to tackle first this morning. Clean windows?
Wishing: that the flu bug hadn’t caught us this winter. It did - well & truly.
Enjoying : the wonderful library services we can access online.
Waiting: for my first try at preserved lemons to be ready. Thanks Fiona @ Life at Arbordale Farm for the prompt. Still a few weeks to go.
Liking: lots of eggs our hens are giving us lately.
Wondering: whether any exciting mail awaits at PO Box – or bills?
Loving: my stitching from the lovely Claire @ Sweet Birdy Love. Just loving it in my kitchen. My poor photography doesn't capture the beauty.
Pondering: if I can get back into my regular walking routine soon.
Considering: cleaning windows next week
Watching: Offspring finale. Big sigh. I loved this season.
Hoping: that our house really is snake-proof.
Marvelling: my husband and I married 8/8/92 and we have just celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary!
Needing: reassurance that carpet snakes don’t really want to get inside the house!
Smelling: Nothing specific. Still getting over flu.
Wearing: jeans & cotton peasant top. Mild day here 22 deg.C
Following: some new blogs - I’ve added to my bloglovin list + my blog
Noticing: how much plastic is on every product.
Knowing: that it is possible to avoid plastic. Must try harder.
Thinking: about victims MH17 disaster - National Day of Mourning
Sorting: out my priorities in next few weeks. Time flying past.
Buying: groceries in bulk where possible. I think it is working - combined with managing household expenses more strictly. One wage only goes so far ......
Getting: excited about some travel plans in next 12 months. Ignore previous comment.
Bookmarking: some new farmers markets to attend soon
Disliking: loud rap music son favours. Sorry, sound like oldie here!
Opening: Some of those lovely window faced envelopes.
Giggling: have recently rekindled friendship with 2 old school friends. We have picked up where we left off many years ago and recently had a girl’s weekend away. Fabulous time.
Feeling: somewhat better now thanks. Being sick is no fun.
Snacking: stewed apple, plain yogurt & cinnamon. Yum.
Coveting: Virginia @ Ock Du Spock's garden! Serious Garden Envy.
Wishing: we really could do with some rain.
Helping: our household budget by being more aware of what we buy
cheers for now
PS - has any one else noticed that there are 5 Sundays in August this year?
