It’s time for a Taking Stock post for Denyse’s #Lifethisweek.
I wasn’t sure of the proper format for Taking Stock posts, so asked Denyse for the list she uses and she kindly shared it with me.
The idea, for me anyway, is to read the word and answer without giving it too much thought, usually the first thing that pops into my head, because that’s how I roll!
Making: A fuss over my daughter who has become a new mother just days ago – oh and the baby too – he’s our first grandson 🙂 (You can read more about this exciting event in my February wrap-up post)
Cooking: Not much and only when I have to.
Drinking: Weak black tea – as usual. My daughter tells me I’m addicted – there’s worse things I could be addicted to!
Reading: Our Book Club book, The Dinner by Herman Koch, even though I won’t be able to go to the discussion due to being away.
Wanting: To be understood.
Looking: At my new baby grandson.
Playing: My ‘Jump’ Spotify playlist, road trips are good for mixed tapes.
Wishing: Time travel was an option (so I could visit my daughter and granddaughter in England).
Wasting: Wasting time wishing for things I can’t have (see above answer).
Enjoying: Riding my bike.
Waiting: For life to settle down a bit!
Liking: All the family time I’ve had lately.
Wondering: Who invented mosquitoes and why??
Loving: My three grandchildren and their very clever mothers.
Hoping: This corona virus doesn’t get to pandemic stage.
Marvelling: At the amount of rain that’s falling.
Needing: A massage.
Smelling: That new baby smell.
Wearing: Shorts and t-shirts and thongs (on my feet)🤣
Following: My husband as we cycle around the place.
Noticing: How lush it is here in Queensland compared to home.
Knowing: Life is good!
Thinking: How fortunate I am.
Bookmarking: Blogs to read.
Opening: Our rail trail opens very soon, working hard on making it happen!
Smiling: At life 😀
I enjoyed writing this light and easy post, I hope you’ve had fun reading through my answers!
