It’s time for the first Taking Stock post for 2021 with Denyse’s #Lifethisweek
Taking Stock #1/2021
This year Denyse has changed the Taking Stock prompts, and I’m happy to join her in using the new version. Thanks Denyse for continuing these regular Taking Stock posts, I always enjoy them! You can read Denyse’s post here and the join the linkup if you’re so inclined.
For me, the idea of these posts is to write a response without giving it too much thought, so it’s usually the first thing that pops into my head.
Let’s get into the first Taking Stock for 2021!
Admiring: How resilient people are as Covid restrictions continue to affect friends and family around the world.
Becoming: Bold (and beautiful)
Curious: How do the other half live and who exactly are they?
Delighted: To be able to catch up with 2 of my favourite blogging buddies while visiting Qld
Excited: To be in Queensland for a few weeks with my daughter, SIL and grandson
Feeling: Happy 🙂
Going: Places on my ebike (with the Mathematician), around the beach
Helping: My grandson learn to walk on his own – so much fun!
Imploring: People to be kind to each other, it’s not that hard!
Joking: Laughter is the best medicine!
Keeping: A positive mindset
Loving: The daily chats I have with my daughters over messenger – sharing photos, news, videos and thoughts
Making: The most of our family time together
Next: A pinch and a punch for the first day of the month! How can it be March already?
Observing: People watching is a great pastime of mine and when you’re away on holidays it is even more interesting for some reason
Reading: Agnes Gray by Anne Bronte, The Secrets we Kept by Lara Prescott, Penguin Bloom by Cam Bloom, Myrren’s Gift by Fiona McIntosh
Staying: In a villa near the beach at Scarborough in Qld – so different from home!
Trying: To be active every day
Understanding: Life isn’t always easy
Viewing: The beach instead of the hills
Welcoming: Cool sea breezes – it’s so humid up here
X (our choice) – An Xtra special Birthday Boy
Yes: Saying yes to taking new opportunities and trying new things. Life is too short to stay fixed on one way of doing things.
Z – Missing seeing my newest grandson Zach, his big sister Emilia and of course little Dottie too (over in England) but realise I can’t be in more than one place at a time. Messages and photos help keep me in the loop as a Globetrotting Granny 🙂
What about you?
What are you taking stock of?
How would you answer any one these prompts?
I always enjoy these fun posts! I hope you do too, I’d love to hear from you 🙂

A tragic accident at age 17, resulting in a Bravery Award from the Queen, didn’t deter Debbie from travelling the world. A young retiree, after being made redundant from her 22 year career managing education programs in a men’s correctional centre, she now loves reading, blogging, riding her ebike and a good cup of tea! Also known as Granny Debs to her 4 grandchildren.
