It’s time for another Taking Stock post – these are always fun to do!
Only one more Taking Stock this year after today’s post, where has the year gone?
Taking Stock #4/2021
For me, the idea of these Taking Stock posts is to write a response without giving it too much thought, so be aware it’s usually the first thing that pops into my head.
Denyse is the author of these Taking Stock prompts and you can read her latest #lifethisweek post here. It’s her 5th year birthday of running her linkup, so many congrats are in order Denyse – well done and thank you!!
You are more than welcome to join the linkup too. So many great blogs to discover!
Let’s get into it!
Admiring: The amazing Duck Cake my daughter and son-in-law made for my granddaughter’s 3rd birthday. It’s considered to be one of the hardest to make (from the authors themselves) from The Australian Women’s Weekly Children’s Birthday Cake Book. Thanks to the Bluey episode for making this the go-to birthday cake these days!
Becoming: Vaccinated – I’m now fully vaccinated, as are all of my family, and I feel quite relieved!
Curious: Are you sick of the news? What headlines would you write?
Delighted: With our new car!
Excited: The weather is finally warming up helping the garden to come alive.
Feeling: Lots of things – all the feels!
Going: To have my hair done as soon as possible after lockdown is over – it’s been over 14 weeks since my last appointment!
Helping: By donating money here and there.
Imploring: My blood pressure to respond to the change of medication the doctor has put me on.
Joking: What is your inner blossom?
Keeping: A look out for snakes in the grass – literally! They’re starting to be spotted out and about already.
Making: Better choices with what I’m eating.
Next: Visit to see my mum as soon as possible.
Observing: How muscles feel sore after a good work out.
Pleasing: To know I have muscles that are capable of feeling!
Reading: The Comfort Book by Matt Haig – actually he’s reading it to me, which makes it even more lovely!
Staying: On task with this month’s #September2021 daily photo challenge on Instagram – hosted by our intrepid leader Denyse!
Trying: To stay positive that our plans for a family Christmas come to fruition.
Understanding: Everyone sees things differently and unless you walk in their shoes you don’t know what they are going through.
Viewing: My granddaughter’s 3rd birthday party over Zoom – due to lockdown. Here’s a little gallery of some of my favourite shots from over the past three years of having her in my life!
Welcoming: Parcels arriving in the post – someone’s been doing a lot of online shopping 🙂
X (our choice): Join us for our next What’s on Your Bookshelf Challenge – another edition coming this Friday (third Friday morning of the month for those in the Southern Hemisphere and the third Thursday evening for those in the Northern parts of the world).
Yes: Saying yes to getting up and exercising online with friends twice a week!
Z – (our choice): Zach my youngest grandson has started crawling and pulling himself up, he is growing up too fast! He’s not even 8 months old yet!
