I’ve seen other bloggers doing Pip’s ‘Taking Stock’ exercise and love the idea so I thought I’d have a go myself. What a fantastic way to do a bit of an audit on yourself to see how you’re feeling and stuff! Here I go!
Making: Plans for my future and hoping all the hard work will eventually pay off!
Cooking: Dinner every night for the family and a big container of salad for me to last for a week of lunches (I just add a little protein each day).
Drinking: In addition to my coffee, lots of water with a dash of diet lime juice cordial!
Reading: The latest Diana Gabaldon book in the Outlander series: “Written in my own heart’s blood”. It’s taking me awhile to get through it. It’s a big, thick book and I have been having trouble staying awake long enough at night to read much!
Wanting: Too many things! I’d love my own photography studio set up here at home, a reno of our bathroom, ensuite and kitchen and new carpet just to name just a few.
Looking: At nature as much as I can. It calms me and makes me feel good.
Playing: ‘Words with Friends’ on my phone with a girlfriend. It’s my weakness. I love word games! We have several games on the go all the time!
Deciding: Where to go to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary next year.
Wishing: Money was not necessary in life!
Enjoying: My lovely new blog!
Waiting: For everything to click into place.
Liking: The fact I have lost a few kg’s!
Wondering: What 2015 will bring me!
Loving: The fact that I have graduated with a Diploma of Professional Photography.
Pondering: How best to combine my photography and blogging passions without burning myself out.
Considering: Upping the ante with my exercise plan to help shift some more weight.
Watching: My garden come to life and bloom now that it is warming up!
Hoping: That all my plans and dreams come together!
Marvelling: At this whole new world of opportunity before me now that my WordPress blog is self-hosted.
Needing: A holiday – somewhere with loads of beautiful nature where I can relax and take photographs!
Smelling: I have no sense of smell. Neither does one of my sons. Not sure why!
Wearing: Casual, comfy clothes – that’s me!
Following: My favourite bloggers.
Noticing: That Christmas is getting close!
Knowing: That with Christmas nearly here there is lots of expense ahead!
Thinking: That the interior of the house needs painting.
Admiring: People who are confident and happy in their own skin!
Sorting: Clothes that fit and clothes that don’t fit. Hoping more will fit soon!
Buying: Groceries! With five adults living here, we go through a lot!
Getting: Excited about five nights away in mid-December at Burleigh Heads!
Bookmarking: Photography and Photoshop tutorials as well as some sites with great reading for bloggers.
Disliking: All the awful things in the news these days.
Opening: Mail – mostly bills.
Giggling: Should do it more!
Feeling: A little overwhelmed at the moment.
Snacking: Mostly fruit as I’m trying to lose weight.
Coveting: A camera bag. I need a bag that can safely hold my camera and various lenses.
Wishing: My graduated son would find a job!
Helping: My family all the time by keeping the household running smoothly.
Hearing: Chelsea (my nearly 15 year old dog) scratching at one of my boys bedroom door. She has always been food crazy and she wants food now!
There – I did it! It took quite a bit of thinking to do! Have you done the ‘Taking Stock’ exercise lately? If you have – link up your post in the comments. I’d love to have a read!
Ciao for now,
