What exactly do you do when Taking Stock?
If you take stock, you pause to think about all the aspects of a situation or event before deciding what to do next. Source
To answer the prompts, I usually give myself a few moments to process the word and then write the first thing that comes into my mind – not exactly what I should do according to the definition above but, hey it works for me!
It’s a fun activity to do – not too much thinking involved and I’m usually happy with my immediate thoughts!
Sometimes life gets too busy, and complicated, so it’s fun to spend a few minutes on simple back to basics thought processes. I hope you also enjoy reading my responses.
Making: Travel plans…exciting times ahead!
Cooking: Eggs for breakfast
Drinking: Tea…always tea. But trying to add more water into the mix.
Reading: So many books! But I’ve recently found a Young Adult series ‘The Matilda Saga’ by Jackie French which I’m loving for some reason. I’m obviously older than the target audience but it’s been a delightful find. Reminder that we have our monthly What’s on Your Bookshelf link up party coming up on Friday 18 March – you’re welcome to join us!
Wanting: Some good news for a change!
Looking: Forward. Onwards and upwards and all that jazz.
Smiling: This quote.
Playing: Not Wordle or any of the other variants – my family is all addicted but I’m not getting sucked in!
Wasting: Time scrolling – there’s a word for that!
Wishing: Wishing you well – wherever you are!
Enjoying: The Autumnal temperatures.
Waiting: For mail to arrive – I’m expecting an exciting parcel any day now.
Liking: That Season 2 of Upload has been released on Netflix.
Wondering: How do people who have lost everything (again) in floods, bushfires, wars – keep going and pick up to start over?
Loving: At the moment this song by Lord Huron is on constant repeat.
Hoping: Things work out as planned.
Marvelling: That I will be going up in a hot air ballon this week in Canberra’s Balloon Spectacular. So excited – despite my fear of heights anxiety!
Needing: To lose a few kilos.
Smelling: Liniment after a good massage – nothing better!
Wearing: My beautiful bright skirt – I always get positive comments when I wear it.
Following: Some very engaging bloggers.
Noticing: The season is changing.
Knowing: I don’t like being taken for granted so I can now stand up for myself when required.
Thinking: Overthinking more often than not!
Bookmarking: Books to read on my BorrowBox library app.
Opening: Messages from my girls – every few days they send me updates on how my grandchildren are going, with photos and videos and I love getting them!
Giggling: I gave my sister a ‘questionable (?)’ gift for her 60th birthday recently and we giggled together over the phone for a good five minutes – lets’ just say she won’t be showing it to mum! It came in this wrapping 🙂
Feeling: Pretty good – all things considered!
These prompts come from an earlier version of Denyse’s Taking Stock – since then Denyse has moved to an alphabetical list which I used here last month. I’ve decided I will alternate between both lists as I write my monthly Taking Stock posts 🙂 I like to mix things up!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Taking Stock this month, it’s such a great way to get a few thoughts down!
What’s your take on Taking Stock?
Have a great week ahead.
