I’m squeezing in an extra blog post this week before we run out of MAY! My plan was to do a ‘Taking Stock’ post every month this year and I have for February and March but April came and went in a whir of preparation for our trip to Tassie and actually being on our Tassie trip and May is nearly at its end. So here I am wrapping April and May into a Taking Stock post before May ends on Sunday (my birthday!).
Making: Lists – lots of lists! Helps me feel organized!
Cooking: Soups! I love this time of year!
Drinking: Water and lots of it! (trying to do the right thing)
Reading: Blog posts! Trying to catch up on all that I missed while away. I haven’t read a book in ages, which is very strange for me who usually reads many, many books. Not sure why this is the case?
Wanting: To lose some weight! What’s new?! lol
Looking: Forward to Sunday when I spend time with family for my birthday.
Playing: The piano occasionally to relax.
Deciding: Next steps in relation to improving my health.
Wishing: My health issues were all sorted and under control.
Enjoying: The cooler weather. I love it!
Waiting: For my luck to change! Does that happen?
Liking: Reno Rumble! I’m a sucker for a makeover show and I’m enjoying this one. Not very impressed with the styling on House Rules this year!
Wondering: Why my right elbow hurts so much!
Loving: My kids. I missed them when we were away.
Pondering: My next steps in every which way.
Considering: A huge lifestyle shake-up.
Buying: Supplements! Blood tests showed I was deficient in Vitamin D, Vitamin B12 and Iron!
Watching: Recorded Outlander episodes. Love seeing the books I’ve read brought to life!
Hoping: I will feel the benefits of the new supplements I’m taking real soon!
Marvelling: At how beautiful Tasmania is! Loved it when we were there and re-living it all while going through all the photographs I took.
Cringing: At a very unflattering photo taken of me in Tasmania by my husband that will never see the light of day!
Needing: An energy boost!
Questioning: The opinions of doctors. I don’t always take what they say as gospel anymore. I seek second opinions and go with what feels right to me.
Smelling: Can’t smell. See all previous Taking Stock posts!
Wearing: I’m still in t-shirts at home. It’s not cold yet for me – just comfortable! I’m hot blooded!
Following: Some awesome new bloggers!
Noticing: That my camellia’s are finally flowering nicely!
Knowing: That Christmas will be here before we know it. The year is flying!
Thinking: About ProBlogger in August and hoping I will feel well enough to attend and enjoy myself.
Admiring: My mum who at 74 is still so full of energy, passion and purpose!
Sorting: Through hundreds and hundreds of photos that I took in Tasmania.
Getting: This post written so that I can then head to the kitchen to prepare a soup for dinner tonight (creamy cauliflower soup – so yummy)!
Bookmarking: Lots of pages relevant to my current health issues. Knowledge is power.
Coveting: So many of the products used on Reno Rumble. How I wish I had a large budget to makeover my own home!
Disliking: That my old dog Chelsea’s obsession with food has become ridiculous. She is constantly scratching at doors wanting to be fed.
Opening: Too many bills!
Giggling: At the antics of our younger dog Ava. She can be such a funny little thing!
Snacking: Love a bit a cheese and gherkin relish on a water cracker!
Wishing: I was made of hardier stock!
Helping: My daughter with information for a journalism assignment she’s working on.
Hearing: My dog Chelsea snoring!
What do you think – Wallaby or Paddy Melon?
Ciao for now,
