Joining in with Meet Me at Mikes, not stealing broth.
Making : An infinity scarf, and a chunky afghan blanket
Cooking : bread and butter pudding out of sandwich crusts, minestrone soup, eggs on toast, enchiladas, shortbread, failed salted caramel macarons.
Drinking : Yorkshire tea, green tea, licorice tea
Reading : A Passionate Life by Ita Buttrose (part of my reading challenge) and Becoming the Parent you Want to Be. Plus various magazines. Oh, plus all The Saturday Paper editions that have been thrown onto my front stoop that I haven’t gotten to. I’m not even going to tell you how far behind I am, it’s embarrassing.
Wanting : A very old-school Breville jaffle maker. Not those newfangled ones, the ones that almost burn and turn the edges of jaffles into impenetrable fortresses.
Looking : At pictures of everybody’s newborns because apparently I need to have another baby?
Playing : The My Little Pony boardgame and pretending to be a patient while two very intense doctors check out everything that could possibly be wrong. Last week I had a crab in my ear.
Wasting : fruit that my kids won’t eat.
Sewing : Nothing.
Wishing : My electric blanket didn’t break within a week of purchase.
Enjoying : Daily yoga and meditation. Slipped there a bit what with houseguests and interstate travel, but it’s nice to be back on board.
Waiting : For brown rice to cook. Gotta be patient with that stuff.
Liking : Possibly biggie’s new school
Wondering : If it’s really the right choice even though it feels as though it is. Quite a decision.
Loving : Ages two and four. That light at the end of baby tunnel is in my face.
Hoping : That effort = reward.
Marvelling : Fussy eater number one ate a wrap yesterday with egg, lettuce, carrot, and cheese. The road is loooooong with maaaany a wiiiinding tuuuurn
Needing : To stop frowning/clenching my jaw.
Smelling : Errrrrr… brown rice. Admittedly not a pleasant smell.
Wearing : Metalicus leggings, Bohemian Traders stripy dress, Metalicus cardigan (not online anymore but I did buy this bloody thing and of course now it’s $50 off), everyday uberkates and a silk scarf that the girls were playing superman with before that I put on because I got unexpectedly cold. And Hello Kitty slippers. I’m a sight for sore eyes, I tell ya.
Following : All the people on Instagram who live in Maine.
Noticing : I slouch wayyyy too much.
Knowing : Only hard work will solve that problem.
Thinking : I’d like dessert right now.
Feeling : Full. But also kind of tired. And that familiar feeling of wanting to put things off until tomorrow.
Bookmarking : Poor Little Rich Women on New York Times site. Fascinating.
Opening : Jars of homemade enchilada sauce. It needs some tweaking but otherwise really, really good.
Giggling : My life in a Kanye West facial
Listening : This.
