So here we are…half way through the year, and it is COLD!
The mornings are so dark…as are the evenings…and we experienced our first frost for the season a few days ago…
And I have to apologise as I am a little late with this June edition of Taking Stock…I actually forgot about it!
However, it’s better late then never, so here goes…
Making: chai…have developed an addiction to T2’s Go Go Goa…especially when made with vanilla soy!
Drinking: the above mentioned chai!
Reading: Women in Clothes by Sheila Heti, Heidi Julavatis etc…this is an enormous book, which will take me forever to read, but I am loving it!
Wanting: a pair of high, brown boots..such a nightmare to find boots that fit wider calves.
Looking: forward to a few days off next week…yay!
Deciding: to update the look of this blog…stay tuned…
Wishing: the weekends were just a little longer.
Enjoying: early nights, warmly tucked up in bed with hubby and the furkids!
Liking: having good central heating on these cold winter days…best invention ever!
Loving: exploring this great city of ours…Melbourne has so many hidden secrets to discover…
Pondering: about working on some collaborations on the blog…open to any suggestions…
Buying: far too much…how much vintage can a girl have?
Watching: the last few episodes of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Series 3…going to be so sad when it finishes.
Hoping: my recent blood tests show everything is well in regards to my thyroxine levels…my body is having trouble absorbing the medication.
Marvelling: at what a difference a liver transplant and three years can make…you wouldn’t know what he has been through by looking at him now!
Needing: more jumpers…I keep saying this but I seem to buy everything BUT jumpers…and now I really need them!
Wishing: I could wear earrings again…my ears were pierced years ago, but I haven’t been able to find earrings that don’t cause my ear lobes to swell up and itch.
Considering: exploring clip on earrings…is there still such a thing?
Questioning: why some people always have to be in a hurry…I hope one day they slow down and enjoy the moment, otherwise their whole lives will be one big blur!
Smelling: one of my favourite flowers…Daphne….wish I could bottle this divine perfume.
Wearing: my 1940s David Jones princess coat…I have wanted a coat like this for ages, and it’s like owning a wearable piece of history.
Getting: a little worried that I am going to get stuck for something to blog about…I have posted every day for well over a year now…
Coveting: one of those fancy gas log fires…we used to have one in one of our previous houses and I miss it!
Disliking: cold, wet, windy days…I can however handle the cold, crisp sunny days…
Opening: a parcel from one of my favourite vintage shops…Frocks and Slacks…it’s like Christmas when one of these arrives in my postbox!
Feeling: distracted…I am finding it hard to sit and concentrate on one thing at a time…I am always going off on a tangent.
Snacking: on almonds…organic and pesticide free of course!
And that is it for June…see you next month for another Taking Stock!
