Taking Stock: June 2016.
Caution! Humour Ahead!
I caught up with a good friend on Monday for our weekly tea n’ cake n’ jamz* session.
*Jamz being Jamberry nail wraps, not music, although we did have tunes playing in the background so I guess it was both!
Anyway, my friend made a comment about how much she loves my blog – awwww! I love it too! – and the post that she keeps returning to at the moment is ‘Taking Stock: April 2016.’
She explained that she loved how “off the cuff” it was and the deeper insights it gave her into me as a person.
How can I argue with that?
So here we go again! Taking Stock: June 2016!
Making: A mess? Someone really ought to clean that kitchen…
Cooking: Just nothin’. Like I said, someone really ought to clean that kitchen. I’m calling my union rep to complain about the conditions.
Drinking: Golden (turmeric) mylk.
Reading: The hysterically funny ‘Let’s Pretend This Never Happened,’ (aff) by Jenny Lawson. This book makes my family seem completely functional and a tad boring by comparison!
Wanting: Umm, how long do you have to hang around and read my list?
Looking: At the number of unread emails in my inbox and thinking, “Hmm, girl, you need to do some unsubscribing and get this thing under control!” The ‘SALE!’ emails are killing me. #TooTempting
Playing: Today’s lessons from the ‘Make Over Your Evenings,’ and ‘Make Over Your Mornings,’ courses. I’m trying to be productive and intentional with my days. I’m off to a flying start getting the lingo right and throwing in words like ‘productive’ and ‘intentional.’
Deciding: Has Master Horus been a good boy? His receiving a treat (bickie) all hinges on this one decision…
Wishing: I was back in Bali.
Liking: Pretty pictures on Instagram. Love that *double tap heart emoticon* feeling. Are we Insty friends yet?
Wondering: If there is a good place to hide in my house. The hubby has a cold, although if you ask him, he will probably tell you that it’s man-flu. Isn’t it always?!
Loving: Big bowls of hearty porridge for breakfast. Quinoa. Oats. Berries. Stewed fruits. Yum!
Pondering: Do I keep growing my pretty pretty curls or cut my hair short? Do I change my manicure or leave it for another week?
Considering: Just giving Master Horus a bickie even if he hasn’t been a good boy all day. My reasons: 1) He’s just so damn cute; 2) We don’t want a repeat of the Bickie Gate scandal and associated Stink Eye treatment; and 3) I clearly have no disciplinary willpower when it comes to my fur-child!
Buying: Car insurance. Oh yeah, excitement plus over here!
Watching: Would you be surprised to hear me say Grey’s Anatomy?! I’m still working my way through Season 12. Hey, it’s not my fault Australia is behind on the airing schedule! No one tell me what happens in the season final!
Hoping: No one spills the beans on the Grey’s Anatomy Season 12 final episode. Play nice peeps!
Marvelling: At how well the Chronic Illness Blogger interview series is going. Ok, that’s a lie, I always knew it was going to be a success with the awesome peeps who are being featured! *giggles* Want to get caught up? Read the latest posts here and here.
Cringing: At the pile of paperwork on my desk that needs filing. Someone really should deal with that.
Needing: More time in my day to get everything done. Yes, I’m well aware that I have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé. Our names start with the letter ‘B.’ That is where the similarities end.
Questioning: My sanity. So is Master Horus. #GiveMeTheBickieNowMummy #LetsNotStartBickieGateAgain
Smelling: Essential oils burning in the diffuser. Hubby cold-germs begone! Sorry, man-flu germs begone!
Wearing: Patterned jeans, top, boots, scarf and denim jacket. No, I haven’t done the double denim thing, although I reckon I could totally pull that look off!
Following: All my new best friends on Facebook.
Noticing: Master Horus giving his ear a good scratch. *Sigh* I better go and check the little Tickeroo for bitey critters. [Side Note: Tickeroo is his new nickname after he deemed it a wise move to stick his head in something infested with ticks last week. Kids!].
Knowing: Lots and yet so little. Where did that just come from? #PhilosphyIsNotMyForte
Admiring: People who just go out there and hustle to make it happen.
Sorting: Out my Pinterest account. I read somewhere that it’s meant to be visually appealing so that’s what I’m doing. Making it visually appealing. Check out the efforts right here.
Getting: Near the end of this list. Lucky you!
Bookmarking: Interesting articles and posts to share on my Facebook page. Are we Facebook BFF’s yet?
Coveting: A new pair of sunnies. Cos a girl can never have enough. I have my eye on the blue Ray-Ban aviators. Upcoming birthday…just puttin’ it out there…
Disliking: That my Hubby is sick. 1) I don’t like to see him sick; and 2) Men don’t tend to make the best patients. I’m suffering!
Opening: Jars are a struggle for me. I try to avoid them wherever possible.
Giggling: At Master Horus’s antics. He just waltzed up to his slumbering father and nose-butted him in the face. Now that’s a wake-up call!
Feeling: Giggly. Ergo the point above about Master Horus and his Daddy.
Snacking: On a super yummy baked apple cake with chia jam that my lovely friend (of the tea n’ cake n’ jamz sessions) made.
Wishing: Upon a star. It’s night time somewhere in the world.
Helping: A friend out. Sarah Jensen is taking her fab program, Rock Your Goals, around Australia this year. Get all the deets right here.
Hearing: The dog from next door bark, bark, bark. Master Horus is so much better on the ears.
And that’s a wrap!
