I love to reflect, to take a minute to think about what’s going on for me. So today I’m joining in with Pip for Taking Stock.
Making: quick and easy dinners.
Cooking: beetroot chocolate cake which turned out perfectly!
Reading: Boomer and Me.
Wanting: time alone, but realising when I get it, that I don’t actually want it that much.
Looking: ahead, but not very far.
Playing: ‘baby proof our rental’ it’s a tough game but really I’m just moving things up high.
Deciding: on so many details.
Wishing: for slow happy quietness.
Enjoying: my busy life.
Waiting: for the electrician, the plasterer, our kitchen, to paint, etc.
Liking: writing snail mail, and receiving them.
Wondering: what I’m going to do with myself once the house is built.
Loving: watching our baby grow.
Pondering: paint colours.
Considering: doing a feature wall in our house. Just a small one.
Watching: the final season of Sons of Anarchy.
Hoping: that we’ll be moving not too long after the new year.
Marvelling: at all the steps it takes to build a house. I’m learning something new every day.
Needing: to eat breakfast.
Smelling: the summer rains.
Wearing: trackies and t-shirts.
Following: some beautiful people on Instagram.
Noticing: beautiful sunrises.
Knowing: that there’s still A LOT to do on our house, but feeling like moving in can’t be that far away.
Thinking: about the BIG things.
Admiring: tradies. There’s so much skill to what they do.
Sorting: all the bills.
Buying: taps, a bath, a toilet, a kitchen… A whole house really.
Getting: an extra module for our kitchen.
Bookmarking: some delicious recipes.
Disliking: the moments of utter fear and stress that come with owner building.
Opening: our online banking and looking at the depleting funds.
Giggling: at E discovering new things.
Feeling: overwhelmed that Christmas is so close.
Snacking: rarely, most days I’m lucky to eat breakfast at the moment.
Coveting: our brand new free standing bath. It’s sitting in the shed, just waiting to be installed and I CAN’T WAIT to have a bath in it.
Wishing: that E would just SLOW DOWN a little. He’s like a bulldozer!
Helping: him stand (when he’s desperately trying to pull himself up) and protecting him when he falls.
Hearing: E talking and chatting as he explores our kitchen and lounge room on his teams. I tend to just sit and watch while he crawls about and climbs onto things.
