Making : Still knitting Himself's Skepp-o-hoj jumper - but nearly finished. Amd itching to start something new. Cooking : Strawberry cheesecake and pizza pies for birthday boys. Drinking : Peppermint tea. Reading: Strands. A year of Discovery - by Jean Sprackland Wanting: Summer to return, it seems to have slipped into autumn. Looking: At my two cats sleeping curled up tight. Playing: Been playing 'Sharp Shooter' a die game and 'German Whist' a card game both with Youngest. Wasting: Learning time - have a huge file to work through and keep avoiding looking at it. Sewing: Three patchwork quilts - originally made and sewn by hand by Himself's Grandma, - some of the patches need replacing. Wishing: I had more time to knit. And cook. And garden. And walk. Enjoying: Sitting in my 'yarden' our small back yard is now full of pots and plants, fairy lights and a comfy bench - a good place to knit. Waiting: To go off to bed - as usual I am up way toooooo late but it is easier to blog than motivate myself for bedtime! Liking: A new blog I have found that has the most delicious recipes - I need the inspiration to change our menu plan. Wondering:How much 'stuff' we can get rid of - our decluttering is in full swing and boxes and boxes of things are going out the door - it feels WONDERFUL! Loving: The fact the cats are loving their precious time outside in their 'yarden'. Hoping:That next week's weather improves so that Himself and the boys can go camping up in the lakes without getting wet. Marvelling: At how many blooms the sweet pea flowers are now producing after a disappointing start. Needing: To wash my hair but ....see - Waiting above. Smelling: The huge bunch of sweet peas I picked yesterday, their scent has filled the air with their sweet sweet scent. Wearing: Jeans, fleece, socks, crocheted shawl - it is definitely getting cooler. Following: A daily colour code diary - gives inspiration, insight and gently motivates. Noticing: That the nerve twitch in my right eyelid is still flickering. Knowing: That I haven't put the milk away from the last brew I made for everyone. Thinking: The carpet needs cleaning - again. Feeling: Ready to go back to work - two weeks off has certainly done me a world of good. Bookmarking: Crochet and knitting blogs - itching to try something new. Opening: The airing cupboard to put another duvet on the bed. Giggling: About a dated music video on the television - they are playing tracks from the charts of 1995 - oh gosh - it wasn't REALLY that long ago - was it?? Feeling: Tired, going off to bed - no really, I mean it this time!
I found this 'coffee and paste' on a blog I pop into now and again and I loved the idea - makes an excellent change from my normal style of posting - thanks pip
