Joining in with Meet Me at Mikes, not stealing broth.
Making : a crochet cashmere cardigan and a beautiful textured afghan from pure wool.
Cooking : Hot cross buns, bread, burger buns, sweet potato and coconut curry, sweet potato and spinach gratin, corn fritters, apple cakes, choc-chip goji berry cookies, endless bread and butter pudding, and an inordinate amount of sauteed sesame soy greens over rice.
Drinking : Yorkshire tea, chai, and whatever red is in the cupboard.
Reading : The Silence of the Lambs. It’s part of my reading challenge. Sort of.
Wanting : To magically have more socks at my disposal.
Looking : At everyone’s blogs again. I had a little break over Christmas that sort of morphed into half the year, but I love blogs so much I don’t know how I survived without them.
Playing : My Little Pony. Ponymania has swept VMHQ and all those 80’s ponies I bought on eBay years ago are getting a full workout. They’re currently living in utter luxury inside one of these bad boys.
Wasting : Stupid dough that stupid won’t stupid work.
Sewing : A button onto a coat. It’s that time of year.
Wishing : There wasn’t so much dust around. But that’s what inner-city living gets ya.
Enjoying : Making time to zone out a bit.
Waiting : For my wisdom teeth surgery. I’m at the hospital while you read this. Hi!
Liking : Food. So this careful eating after surgery thing is pretty heinous.
Wondering : Why I can’t quit.
Loving : These kids. Holy shit. We’re at Cuteness Level: Extreme and I can’t believe how often I think of having a third. I was so done.
Hoping : That I can pull off a very daring expedition.
Marvelling : That my worst sleeper has now become my best. Those two years of sleep hell have plenty to do with the fact I’m not cut out for more children.
Needing : To do some yoga.
Smelling : A very pretty avocado and lime candle.
Wearing : A bathrobe. I apologise, internet. But I got up early to work and it was the warmest thing I could find in the dark. It’s a fancy one that we received at our Remarkables Retreat in Noosa, it even has my initials on it. I know you’ll forgive me.
Following : Cinnamon Girl – her beautiful Maine homesteading pictures and simple stories make me want to immediately buy chickens and a wood stove.
Noticing : Lots of things, especially after we had a TV-free week, and I ditched the social media apps on my phone late last year. I notice plenty.
Knowing : I’m about to get a lot more cold. I hope I can handle it.
Thinking : I should probably make some food prior to this hospital business.
Feeling : Hungry. I didn’t have much for breakfast so I’ve got some organic eggs and homemade bread calling my name. Which is weird, I didn’t think bread could speak.
Bookmarking : Beer battered tofu tacos with mango salsa, and Green curry dumplings.
Opening : Jars of homemade blackberry jam.
Giggling : Truth.
Listening : Drake.
