It’s time for Taking Stock again. This is my final quarterly Taking Stock post for 2019. You can read the other three at these links – Taking Stock – March 2019; Taking Stock – June 2019; and Taking Stock – September 2019.
Making: soaked biscuit/kibble for my foster kittens!
Cooking: every night wears thin doesn’t it? I’d love a chef cooking amazing meals for me for a change. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Sipping: Baileys on ice. What can I say – we all have our weaknesses.
Reading: dosage requirements for ‘Baycox’ worming treatment for the kittens. It required some mathematical skill that’s for sure and maths is certainly not my strong point! 0.4 ml per 1kg. Kittens at the time were 389g, 395g, 437g, and 446g. See how you go with working out how much each kitten gets! 😆
Looking: At the kittens sooo much. They are so adorable and such time wasters! (BTW – plenty of kitten pics at the foster kittens link under ‘making’ above)
Listening: To the recent rain was glorious! Please can we have some more!
Wishing: For an end to the drought and the bushfires. It is so scary and so devastating.
Enjoying: Well of course – my first foster kittens!
Liking: that a new year and a new decade will soon be upon us. I love a fresh start!
Loving: that I finally put aside my fears and took the plunge to give fostering a go.
Buying: quite a bit of kitten paraphernalia lately! 😆
Watching: Netflix a lot more now that regular TV has gone into Christmas holiday mode (eg rubbish and reruns)
Hoping: again … for relief from drought and an end to the bushfires … please!
Needing: a massage so bad! Must book one for the new year!
Wearing: my gorgeous Ruby Red Corundum Uberkate ring brings me much joy!
Following: lots of kitten foster carer instagram feeds these days!
Noticing: that there is a lot of laundry involved in kitten foster care!
Sorting: out Christmas gifts has been a bit more organised this year than the previous two years
Getting: into the swing of this fostering gig!
Saving: toilet rolls and newspaper for 1) kitten play, and 2) lining the pen under the litter trays.
Bookmarking: kitten foster care wish list items on Amazon.com.au
Coveting: this and this for my future foster kittens. If only money grew on trees!
Opening: a few delivery boxes of late … not for me … for the kittens!
Giggling: at the funny little antics of the kittens. They’re such little time wasters but bring such joy!
Feeling: so happy to be healthy again! The pneumonia I had basically stole two months of my life.
Hearing: the happy contented purrs from the kittens and the really cute joyful sounds that Nicko makes brings me such joy!
Obsessing: over trying to be a good foster carer. Lots of research has been done and lots of observing other foster carers. I want to do the best for these babies … err … kittens.
Oh hey – did you catch on to the fact that I’m fostering kittens?!! 😂🤣
If you’re interested in Taking Stock too, pop over to this post at Pip’s blog – Meet me at Mikes, where the whole idea originated from. Scroll to the bottom of the post and you can copy and paste a blank list of the prompt words and go from there!
This will be my last post published for 2019. I’m going to give myself a bit of a break from the blog but I’ll be back sometime in January 2020. I’m throwing caution to the wind and leaving my return date open.
I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas! I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and that you enjoy a bit of a break and relaxation time over the festive season. To those of you missing a loved one this Christmas (and always), I see you, I feel you, and as the angel image above depicts – I’m sending you love and wishing you good health, safety, peace and happiness. I’ll see you in the new year – a whole new decade!
Ciao for now,
I’m linking up today with Denyse Whelan for #LifeThisWeek
