Taking Stock: April 2016.
Caution! Humour Ahead!
I’ve been out of the blogging game for a couple of weeks now.
Mainly because I’ve been off my blogging game for a couple of weeks now.
Fatigue has been kicking my butt and my brain hasn’t been properly engaged with, well, anything!
Poor Starbrite Warrior is craving a new content hit!
So I thought I’d ease back into the blogosphere with a little light-hearted humour and behind-the-scenes look with the help of some prompts from Pip (Meet Me At Mikes).
It’s called Taking Stock. Here we go!
Making: I’m back on bickie duty for Master Horus (fur-child). I can’t take the stink eye looks any more…
Cooking: Umm refer above! Master Horus, your bickies should be ready in approximately 20 hours! (I use the dehydrator).
Drinking: A nice cuppa Ceylon tea.
Reading: I’ve just finished ‘The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor,’(aff) by Sally Armstrong for book club. I haven’t started another book just yet although I have ‘Crazy Rich Asians,’(aff) and ‘Let’s Pretend This Never Happened,’(aff) on order.
Wanting: To be on holiday at a remote tropical location. Drinking a coconut with one of those pretty little umbrella’s sticking out of the top.
Looking: At the Guasha tiger stripe marks all over my back from my latest acupuncture session. Thanks Mel!
Playing: On my phone. What can I say, I’m Gen Y! It’s in my DNA.
Deciding: Whether I change my jamicure. It’s still looking pretty and is only 1 week old…but ya know!
Wishing: I was on holiday at a remote tropical location. Drinking a coconut with one of those pretty little umbrella’s sticking out of the top. #ISoundLikeABrokenRecord
Enjoying: Podcasts! I’m a bit of a late adopter to this one but I’m making up for lost time! Some of my current favourites include my buddy Sarah Jensen’s ‘Rock Your Goals,’ and ‘The Blog Millionaire.’
Waiting: To see if Apple are going to release a new version of the MacBook Air this year. I need a new laptop!
Liking: Pretty pictures on Instagram. *double tap heart icon* Are we friends over there?
Wondering: How many more days of beach weather are left. *sad face* With a forecast of 31 degrees Celsius (88 degrees Fahrenheit) next week I think it’s looking pretty promising for a while yet! *happy face!*
Loving: Black sticky rice soaked in coconut milk and topped with mango, coconut shreds and crunchy cashews is back on the menu at one of my favourite cafe’s after months of hiatus. *Drool* Bring on weekend breakfast noms!
Pondering: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Considering: Changing my jamicure. Just because I can. Now to decide which wrap combo I want to wear…choices choices!
Buying: Just nothin’ right now. So boring, right?! I can hear Hubby’s audible sigh of relief.
Watching: I’m still doing my reruns of Grey’s Anatomy! Currently surfing between Season 11 (which I can binge watch on DVD) and Season 12 (which I’m restricted to a once-per-week-only viewing as it’s the current season).
Hoping: I can figure out this whole Twitter and Pinterest thing in the near future and be less random about what I do over there!
Marvelling: At where the year is going. Probably because it’s such a hot topic of conversation and is right up there with the “How are you? I’m fine. How are you? I’m fine too,” social exchange.
Cringing: At the “you-me-outside-now-its-rumble-time!” looks Master Horus is giving me in response to what I’m terming the ‘Bickie-Gate’ scandal.
Needing: Sleep. Lots of sleep. And a new laptop!
Questioning: How I let myself get into the ‘Bickie-Gate’ scandal with Master Horus…
Smelling: Nothing stinky, which is always a good thing!
Wearing: Right now it’s my comfy jimmy jams! I’ll dress up tomorrow…
Following: My Hubby around the house to nag him about something. That’s normal, right?!
Noticing: That I’m getting nowhere with the nagging hubby thing. Time to kick things up a gear!
Knowing: I will be endlessly harassed by Master Horus until ‘Bickie-Gate’ is resolved. Kids!
Admiring: My pretty nails. Can you tell that I have pretty nails on the brain?
Sorting: Out the clutter in our house and making some spare change (thanks eBay!) along the way.
Getting: A numb butt from sitting down for more than 5 minutes. Legs, you aren’t far off!
Bookmarking: The latest newsletter from Alexandra Franzen. I can’t get enough of her writing!
Coveting: A new pair of Nike kicks to get me through the cooler months.
Disliking: Animal abuse. The penalties should be a LOT harsher.
Opening: Master Horus’s bickie jar to prove to him that I really am a slack parent and it is indeed empty. #EpicFail #BetterWorkOnPlanB
Giggling: At Master Horus playing “chicky smash” in the back room in response to the empty bickie jar. It basically involves him being a big bully to his toys (yes there is a rubber chicken, hence the name). He only gets away with it because he’s so cute. And it gives me a reprieve from the stink eye looks!
Feeling: Like I really need that tropical island destination holiday with the coconuts and umbrella drinking straw hats.
Snacking: On homemade bliss balls. Can’t. Stop. *nom nom*
Wishing: Gah! Refer above! I can’t write the holiday or Master Horus thing out anymore or it will lose the funny factor!
Helping: Myself. Nothing wrong prioritising thy self!
Hearing: Hubby’s audible sigh of relief that I’m not buying anything right now. Yeah, that’s not gonna last for too long!
And that’s a wrap!
