So, let’s jump straight on in!
Making: Crocheted Bohemian Market Bags to give to relatives as Christmas gifts
Cooking: Healthy but yummy meals
Drinking: Lots of fluids
Reading: About what to see and do along The Great Ocean Road in Victoria
Next read: A book that will sweep me away to another world – I hope!
Wanting: To feel well again
Looking: Forward to flying to Melbourne, hiring a car, and exploring The Great Ocean Road in late November
Playing: Words for Friends on my phone is about all I’ve been playing lately
Deciding: Where to stay, what to do, where to go – Melbourne and Great Ocean Road
Wishing: Summer to not get here too quickly. I like this more comfortable weather we’re having right now.
Enjoying: The fact that I am a BUPA Blog Award 2018 FINALIST in the Personal Category! I know! Who even am I?
Waiting: To feel better and get better!
Liking: … and loving the new paint job in the kitchen and dining rooms (we hired professionals)!
Wondering: How long it will take us to paint the rest of the interior of the house!!
Loving: My new kitchen!
Pondering: The details for the itinerary of our upcoming trip along The Great Ocean Road
Considering: Booking a 15 minute helicopter site-seeing tour at Port Campbell
Buying: Jute and Cotton from Bunnings – great for my crocheting needs of late!
Watching: Just finished watching Season 3 of Outlander on Netflix. Isn’t it so awful when you watch the final episode and you know it’ll be ages till the next Season is on Netflix!
Next watch: I’m watching The Block and The Bachelor lately while I crochet. I like a bit of light entertainment, though both can be frustrating and annoying at times!
Hoping: That Twin 2 has some good luck go his way very soon
Marvelling: At my daughter’s confidence and independence. She’s far more confident than I was at her age and I’m so happy for her that she is, and proud.
Cringing: At the behaviour of some of the girls on The Bachelor. Is it for real or staged to make good TV? The mind boggles.
Needing: A break … from the usual, a change of scenery, a new adventure!
Questioning: My decisions as usual – for example, I am constantly filling online shopping carts, only to then question my decisions and abandon the carts. I end up buying nothing.
Wearing: Comfy and stylish is my midlife mantra – for clothes and shoes. No suffering for vanity for me anymore.
Following: So many inspiring people on Instagram lately
Worrying: About everything and anything. There’s lots to worry about and I am a worrier it seems! I try to not let my worry affect others though.
Noticing: Today, at this very moment (Tuesday morning), I feel worse (health wise) than yesterday.
Knowing: I may have to make another doctors appointment
(Update: I went to the doctors on Wednesday. Instagram post below provides a bit of an update)

I was a bit quick to get excited about being back on the road to wellness earlier this week. Just a bit of a setback. Third visit to the doctor in as many weeks today. A throat swab, a chest x-ray, and another stash of drugs from the chemist later – and hopefully this time I really will get better! The doctor says there are some very nasty bugs around at the moment so do take care!😊
Thinking: About my Dad every single day. Survived Father’s Day. His birthday is next.
Admiring: The other bloggers who are also BUPA Blog Award 2018 finalists. There’s quite a few that I know (they’re well known), and some that are new to me. We’re all different types of people, who blog about different things in different ways but blogging is the commonality that links us together which is kinda nice don’t you think?
Sorting: Through my thoughts and writing lists is my way of helping myself to feel a sense of achievement each day
Getting: Prepared for Christmas by deciding to crochet some bags as gifts (which I’ll put a few goodies in)
Bookmarking: Crochet patterns. I’ve become a bit crochet obsessed!
Coveting: Nothing really – mainly just to feel and be healthy and well again!
Disliking: Being sick for over two weeks – ugh! Health is wealth people!
Opening: A parcel from Hong Kong was such a thrill for me. It was some Hand Made/Painted Bohemian style beads that I ordered from Etsy.
Giggling: Saw a video on Facebook this morning of a puppy throwing a tantrum. It gave me the giggles.
Feeling: Optimistic that this latest doctor visit, tests and stash of drugs will be what finally gets me better!
Snacking: On far too many Butter Menthols while sick. They’re so soothing for my throat!
Hearing: Birds chirping. I love that sound.
So there you go. Lots been going on around here! Hopefully for the next Taking Stock post at the end of December, I will have been well again for quite a long time and have a heap of bohemian style market bags created and ready for Christmas gifts!
By the way. in case you weren’t aware, the Taking Stock concept and word prompts are the brainchild of Pip from Meet Me at Mikes. You can go HERE to grab a blank list of the word prompts to copy & paste and take stock yourself if you’d like to!
How are things with you? What would be the main events of your last couple of months?
