Making : A poncho from some alpaca yarn I got from Bendigo Woollen Mills on my roadtrip with Kate from Foxs Lane.
Cooking : Apple and Cinnamon tea cake, Raspberry Jam cake, Jammy Pecan and Oat Biscuits from Wholefood for Children, Spinach Alfredo Pizza, cheese quesadillas.
Drinking : Tea. Always tea. Although I did make a salted caramel syrup for coffee and have indulged quite often.
Reading: Everything. I’m almost finished On Writing by Stephen King, have made a little headaway in The Complete Buddhism for Mothers, by Sarah Napthali, I am reading for a second time The Way of The Happy Woman, by Sara Avant Storer (the winter bit), I’ve been trying to read The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams before I go to sleep (I’m trying to do that “fiction before bed thing”) and I got stuck into Cross Stitch by Diana Gabaldon on the plane over the weekend. Oh, and I finished A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf on the first plane.
Wanting: To sleep.
Looking: At new suburbs.
Playing: Very briefly at the park when there’s not gale-force Antarctic winds.
Sewing: I’ve sewed 0 things since I started taking stock last year.
Wishing: For more time.
Enjoying: The stages my kids are at. Hilarious.
Waiting: Spring. It will come. It’s getting lighter earlier in the morning now… gives me hope.
Liking: Beer for breakfast.
Wondering: How much I’m literally capable of, and how much I can give to others to do.
Loving: Hot husband.
Hoping: I’m not screwing my kids up too much.
Marvelling: That Smalls is nearly two.
Needing: A different way of thinking. I can’t change anything if I keep looking at it the same way I always have.
Smelling: A bunch of candles I bought from Golden Skull. They are insane! I love them.
Wearing: Black leggings, Lord of the Fries hoodie, striped socks, cons, and my Uberkate ID cuff.
Following: Alex_and_Ernest on Instagram. It’s my cousin’s new jewellery venture and it makes me wish I was young and tanned and had the required amount of sleep each night.
Noticing: I look at the weather forecast a lot.
Knowing: You can always do better.
Thinking: About family. I’ve caught up with a few long-lost relatives lately and it’s pretty cool.
Bookmarking: Bread in 5 minutes a day, Sichuan Tofu in “fish” Fragrant Sauce, Homemade Muesli Bars, and a reminder to get Hillary Clinton’s new book.
Opening: Accounts at online stores.
Giggling: This unintentionally funny human. And “fucking magnets, how do they work?”
Listening: Back to Magna Carta Holy Grail, lots of Against Me!, always with the news podcasts, the ’90s station on Spotify, the Hip Hop station on Spotify and Taylor Swift when the mood hits me. Which, let’s face it, is pretty rare.
