Making : more time for exercise (jogging and bike riding!) Cooking : Malteser Icecream Sandwiches - soooo good and my kids love them (and maybe me just that little bit more!) Drinking : decaf coffee and lots of water Reading: "Tea Time for the Traditionally Built" and "Chase" and about to start "The turn of the Screw" for rav reading group Wanting: To try my hand at peg dolls (2 peg doll books in my book depository wish list) Looking: Through knitting magazines (10 cents each at the op shop - oh happy days!) Playing: Firefighters and aeroplanes at kindy Deciding: I need a canvas with a quote about morning sunshine to remind me to be more of a morning person! I've pinned one off of www.soulemama.com that I saw a thousand years ago and loved Wishing: there was enough time to knit everything I want to Enjoying: time with crafty friends Waiting: for our big trip to New Zealand Liking: how enthusiastic Dan is about his learning since he joined Mr D.'s class Wondering: If the doctor's scales will still say I've lost 3 kilos tomorrow or if the icecream sandwiches have really screwed me over! Loving: My 3 cherubs Pondering: How quickly the year is flying Considering: Whether I need a stash of Bendigo 10 ply (since I keep seeing so many patterns using 10 ply and I don't seem to have any!) Buying: Op shop doileys and German rolls from the lobethal bakery Watching: Downton re-runs Hoping: To get a new chook tomorrow Marvelling: at how Maddie can have so many bumps and bruises and still come up smiling Cringing: at how dirty the girls white school socks are Needing: an early night Questioning: why so many people feel the need to fill their kids lunchboxes with processed, over packaged junk Smelling: awesomely good basil that has gone nuts Wearing: Kindy clothes (polo shirts and shorts and sandshoes) Following: pinterest (way too many crochet ideas) Noticing: that I am a happier person if I get the work/family/life/me time balance right Knowing: that we don't have a small house, we just have too much stuff Thinking: about the great de-clutter and learning to let go of things that don't work Admiring: clutter free spaces Sorting: Dan's room tomorrow, my sewing corner later in the week Getting: frustrated at how quickly kids mess up where you just cleaned Bookmarking: ravelry patterns - sooo many! Coveting: Bendigo Wool's new "Bloom" collection (which is on special for $10 a ball until the end of February) Disliking: the neighbourhood cats that wake me up at 3.00 a.m. every morning! Opening: Another tape runner refill Giggling: Over a silly thermomix spoof on you tube Feeling: Knackered after a busy day at kindy, then piano, then karate Snacking: Trying hard not to, but if I do, a small handful of almonds Comforting: Maddie with the bump on her head Helping: make meals for Bridget, and a bunny for the Mirabel foundation, and some little handknits for a kindy families foster baby Hearing: Top gear in the background, and the hum of the fish bubbler, and the silence of 3 little people dreaming in their beds.
