Making : card kits for my first "card buffet" on the weekend Cooking : pork ribs and potato bake and our favourite beetroot and feta and pecan and sweetpotato salad Drinking : apple cider (yay for Summer weather!) Reading: "Delancey" (again) perfect holiday reading. I love the way Molly Wizenberg writes. Just finished "The Lie" which was well written but kind of moody and bare and depressing Wanting: another week of holidays Looking: at lovely things on ravelry Playing: my favourites list on the ipod Deciding: to make a conscious effort to do over 10 000 steps each day Wishing: the 9 year old birthday boy would stop growing so fast Enjoying: holidays with everyone home (what a luxury to have James home too!) Waiting: for Mum and Dad to get back from cruising Liking: Sleep ins, and lazy days Wondering: If I could pay children to clean up the kitchen Loving: my Spring garden - a 10 year old lilac bush that has just now decided to bloom! Pondering: the next quilting project (now that Dr Seuss is finally done) Considering: casting on another knitting project Buying: groceries - we seem to eat such a lot with us all home! Watching: The 3rd series of a Place to Call Home, Foyle's War reruns Hoping: For a calm, stress free 4th term Marvelling: that I am mother to a 9 year old boy - where did that chubby baby go? Cringing: At the thought of NQS assessment and 55 summative reports this term Needing: Sleep, home comforts, quiet days Questioning: Smelling: Lilac and lavender and jasmine and roses - oh sweet Spring smells Wearing: my new favourite summer dress (made locally and super comfortable - LOVE IT) Following: CTMH card ideas on Pinterest Noticing: the washing piling up Knowing: holidays can't last forever Thinking: I have pretty great kids Admiring: crafty people who can get paid to do what they love Sorting: Maddie's old clothes, my old craft magazines Getting: ridiculously over-excited at the vintage Strawberry Shortcake colouring books gifted to my kids - the very same one that I had when I was a girl - circa 1982!!!!) Bookmarking: New recipes Coveting: more Summer dresses and nice sandals Disliking: that no matter how much I exercise I still don't lose weight Opening: junk mail and cans of condensed milk and beetroot Giggling: over silly facebook posts and the funny things Maddie says - that girl has way too much sass! Feeling: happy, and nostalgic Snacking: on pecan nuts Helping: kids bake Hearing: James rocking out with the guitar
Hope you are having an awesome week too. Back tomorrow with pictures of my boy and his birthday quilt and some of the photos of our recent Flinders trip.
