    July 31, 2017

    Making: Omelettes for breakfast (every day!).

    Cooking: for 15 for my belated birthday celebration.

    Drinking: Staminade.

    Reading: My Preppie’s ‘Look What I Can Do’ book.

    Wanting: time in my much-neglected garden.

    Looking: for the oft-lost fidget spinner.

    Playing: ten-pin bowling on Nintendo Wii.

    Wasting: tissues. So much sickness around.

    Sewing: a cushion cover for a friend’s housewarming & blankets for two new babes.

    Wishing: with all my heart that I could go to the On Being Gathering.

    Enjoying: spending time with my parents.

    Waiting: for the warmth & freshness of spring, my favourite season.

    Liking: Matt Licata‘s FB page.

    Wondering: if I should give up coffee.

    Loving: giving my ‘Slow’ e-course a make-over. Starting September 1, you can sign up here.

    Watching: The Handmaid’s Tale – so good!

    Marvelling: at people who’ve given up coffee.

    Needing: to throw the windows open & banish all the germs.

    Smelling: Eucalyptus oil.

    Wearing: my 5th pair of Decjuba Riley pants – seriously obsessed with these pants!

    Following: @mauramurraydoc on Twitter – the makes of the Missing Maura Murray podcast & documentary.

    Noticing: how many unused apps I have on my phone. Argh…technological clutter.

    Knowing: I probably won’t give up coffee.

    Thinking: about running a marathon next.

    Admiring: my husband’s dedication to study. Only a few weeks until his last (hopefully) exam! 

    Sorting: clothes, towels & the other contents of Mount Newman.

    Getting: belated birthday gifts!

    Bookmarking: my branch-weaving for kids post over at Brisbane Kids. Time to go branch hunting again!

    Coveting: a slow & simple lifestyle. Somewhat winning.

    Opening: a fresh new journal.

    Giggling: at my 5 year old dressed as a 100 year old for 100 days of Prep.

    Feeling: cranky.

    Listening: to the new ‘Undisclosed’ case on Gary Mitchum Reeves – very intriguing!
