I read Patch’s taking stock post and followed her links to Pip’s who was taking stock last month and thought that if I took stock right now I might clear the haze from my brain which is in overload and heading for melt down.
Making- one knitting project on the go for Little Miss F
Cooking- lots of vegetarian food but today I made a chicken and almond curry and it was delicious
Drinking- I am a tea drinker- Earl Grey in the Spring and Summer, Lapsang in the Autumn and Winter. And at this time of year am in the change over from one to another depending on mood and temperature outside.
Reading- have just finished my book and am in a happy stage of indecision as to what to read next. Anything rather than the half completed Power of Attorney documents my brother left me to finish off for our Mum.
Wanting- the fog to lift from my brain
Looking- at the birds in the garden as they select a nest site and suitable building materials.
Playing- happy that I finished the Sudoku in the TV mag today.
Deciding- that I will have to be firm with my Dad and tell him he can’t run a holiday cottage from a hospital bed aged 90! Especially when he had already said he had cancelled all bookings… and now it turns out he may not have.
Wishing- that Mr E was not still working away- only two weeks to go and he will be home
Wondering-why on earth people fuss so much about a few wrinkles, they are aging anyway!
Loving- my family
Pondering- should I go and make some tea right now
Considering- which sewing project to do next, finish a doll I am making or start a wall hanging. You will all know which has the greater appeal
Watching- the Great British Sewing Bee- still haven’t decided who I think is the front runner
Hoping- for lots of hot sunny days this year
Marveling- at the human desire and will to live
Needing- a hug
Smelling- the hycaynths which have just come into flower in the garden
Wearing- comfy jeans and jumper
Following-Run around ranch who may be taking on the Friday Fences meme. Yippee.
Noticing- these jeans feel a bit on the tight side- OH NO
Knowing- that no man/woman should be an island
Thinking- how much clutter we still have to go through, will it never end
Feeling- a bit over whelmed at the moment
Admiring- the hospital staff who are taking care of my Dad and the Social Worker who is helping us keep Mum safe
Buying- the bare essentials only, but a new pair of shoes would be nice…
Getting- it takes me ages to get a joke, but I did this week and I will tell it to you in May
Bookmarking- I am trying to go through my books too and I am amazed at the number of book marks I own. I bookmark a lot of recipes in recipe books with old postcards and photos. Brill. Last thing I bookmarked blogging wise is this
Disliking- myself quite a bit at the moment- guilt is a hard thing but I can’t be in four places at once!!
Opening- hopefully we will be opening a new chapter in our lives this year
Giggling- a little at myself right now for being a bit of a Moaning Minnie! Now wouldn’t that be a great blog Moaning Minnie? Yeah just Googled it and it is a shop on Etsy!!
Feeling- better, taking stock was a good idea thanks
Snacking- Ginger Nuts…jeans/tight? Connection?
Coveting- nothing,well maybe stretchy jeans, or non fattening ginger nuts
Wishing- I had gone and made that tea
Helping-Next week Mr E and I are painting the front door- I am definitely the help.
Hearing- the radiator as the boiler clicks into life
Enjoying- the times I can get into the garden and weed with my friend Spot the blackbird
Waiting- any minute now, for the kettle to boil for that tea.
Feeling a bit better, taking stock is good from time to time.
