Hi there! How are you, lovely friends? Gosh, this month has whizzed by. Has it for you too? It’s had a little bit of everything for me. Some quite stressful days, some chill times, some ‘feeling a bit quiet and alone’ times (my man has been away with work for a couple of weeks but home soon!) So time to sit back and have a reflect on where I am at the moment now that August is drawing to a close – and to take time to admire these lovely hellebores in my garden!
Making: this cowl. A perfect ‘in front of the TV’ knit!
Noticing: my elbow is sore from too much knitting!
Cooking: scallops for dinner tonight – with some crispy bacon, lemon, parsley. Yum! My man’s not a fan, so whilst he’s away…
Drinking: green tea
Eating: leftover lasagne from last night. Love a leftover. You open the fridge and it’s like a little gift just waiting there to be consumed!
Reading: The Course of Love. As on old married woman, I’m really enjoying this. Lots to say about the ‘course of love’.
Waiting: for the final year of school for my girl to come to an end. What a slog it has been!
Knowing: that school will come to an end!
Looking: at the blossom that is appearing on the trees. So pretty!
Hearing: the gentle hum of the heating
Wondering: why people can be so destructive towards each other
Remembering: who’s home for dinner each night! Where is the routine? Gah!
Feeling: a bit bad that I’ve slept really well whilst my man has been away. Love him to bits but a couple of weeks without snoring and heavy breathing has been quite nice!
Smelling: daphne on my morning walk
Thinking: about birthday presents for my man and my boy. What to buy???
Opening: my sketchbook most days
Enjoying: keeping up my drawing practice
So. There we go. That’s August! Have you had stressful days? Calm days? Do you need to take stock too?
