Making: Plans with a friend for a fun girls getaway for a couple of nights!
Cooking: Every.Bloody.Day! Why do people need to eat?
Drinking: Water, water, coffee, water, water, water, coffee, wine, water, water, water, coffee, water, water, coffee, wine
Reading: Lots of online research lately – shhhh you’ll find out more soon enough!
Wanting: To escape suburbia and take off with my camera to beautiful new places!
Looking: Forward to my first ever cruise (8 nights) in early December!
Playing: Lots of music on YouTube lately … since I started Music Monday’s on the WOTM Facebook page. Music Mondays = two songs I like – one posted at 7am and another at 4pm each and every Monday. Come check it out and join in the fun (mostly it’s just me, myself and I but hey we’re having a blast)! Here’s the first ever Music Monday song I posted – Suzi Quatro and Chris Norman singing ‘Stumblin In’. I love this song!
Deciding: On songs each Monday is SO.MUCH.FUN!!
Wishing: That terrorism was not a word I knew of. My friend and I caught the train to and from the theatre to see the musical ‘Singin’ in the Rain’ the other day. Waiting on the platform of the train station to go home we got talking to a lady who was sweeping. She instructed some people to drop their rubbish against a wall as there are no bins. “Why are there no bins” I asked. “Have you heard of terrorism love” she replied. Yes I have … unfortunately. So sad we can’t even have bins at train stations don’t you think?
Enjoying: Having my sister’s toy poodle ‘Rudi’ stay with us for a week. Ava is loving it too!
Waiting: For my niece to have her first baby in early-mid October – so excited!
Liking: Very much the fact that I live near water where I can go to walk or sit, and to regain some peace and calm and balance!
Wondering: If my niece’s baby will be a boy or a girl. She and her husband know and have kept it a secret. Don’t know how they’ve managed that!!
Loving: Singing and music. For a while there – I lost the music. I forgot how good it made me feel. A friend reminded me of my love of music (about a year ago) and for that I will always be grateful. I even revealed recently on the WOTM Facebook page that I once sang this song solo at a party (circa 2000/2001) … as well as other songs with the group I was part of.
Pondering: Life. The Universe. Everything!
Considering: All the possibilities!
Buying: A complete new desk/workstation set up for me from Ikea. Only the drawers have been put together so far. Lots more to be done before I can get the new set up in place.
Watching: Ok I’ll admit it. I watched The Bachelor and I was so team Nikki. Good luck to Richie and Alex though – I really do hope they will be happy! I’m now watching The Bachelorette – fingers crossed for Georgia Love.
Hoping: The specialist I’m seeing will resolve all my issues and set me on the path to good health and feeling awesome!
Marvelling: At the paralympians. They did us proud in Rio. I so admire their dedication, commitment and talents!
Cringing: At the amount of times I’ve had needles stuck in me over the last month.
Needing: To escape suburbia with my camera and go bush or to the mountains or to the sea or to far away places where there is beautiful nature and new places to explore and experience. Have I said this before? I have? Oh (not sorry)!
Questioning: My crazy desire and need to flee!
Smelling: Same ‘ol story – I have no sense of smell. Ho hum!
Wearing: Truth be told – active wear most of the time!
Following: My heart a little too much sometimes, so need to listen to my head a little more to balance things out!
Noticing: That 2016 is speeding by too fast and before we know it Christmas will be here again!
Knowing: That it is going to be hot, hot, hot, humid, humid, humid again real soon – agghh!!
Thinking: That sadly there is some truth to this quote – ‘people don’t change, they reveal who they really are’.
Admiring: My niece’s artistic talents! She is only 13 (14 in December) and already producing incredible art.
Sorting: Through loads and loads of old ‘family office’ stuff in order to convert the space where I blog from to my own actual workstation that totally only has my stuff here – yay!
Getting: Excited about some upcoming new ideas for the blog!
Bookmarking: So many diverse things!
Coveting: Travel. I would really love to take off with my camera travelling, taking photographs, and enjoying new experiences. Oh that’s right – I might have said this before? Oops (still not sorry)!
Disliking: The fact I have had so many medical appointments lately!
Opening: My Ikea boxes – such fun!
Giggling: With my good friend on our recent outing to the theatre. We always laugh and enjoy each other’s company which is bloody awesome and something I very much treasure and appreciate!
Feeling: Annoyed that winter was not cold this year (in Brisbane anyway).
Snacking: Is a problem I have!
Helping: My son out by sewing back up the fallen hems of his work pants x 2 (what does he do to them?). The things us Mum’s do!
Hearing: Songs in my head … all.the.time!
Mixing: Up my breakfast smoothie (Berries, Apple, Spinach, Water, Ice & Protein Powder) every single day!
Worrying: About Dad, about Mum, about my sister, about my kids, about me, about everyone I care about! That’s me!
Slicing: My finger on a knife just recently. Ouch! Just a little cut – not too bad.
Celebrating: The fact the results of my first lot of medical tests revealed nothing dire!
Forgetting: To post the sympathy card I bought and wrote on for my friend whose father recently passed away. I feel so bad!
Pretending: To be a grown up. I mean hello – who ever truly feels like a proper grown up – like what we thought a grown up was when we weren’t a grown up!!
Embracing: Whatever comes my way. What other choice do I have? I’ll make the most of the good and I’ll find the lessons in the bad, or not so good.
Ciao for now,
