Gah! Can you believe it? January 31 already! It feels like it has been quite a full month. It started out in wintry New York and has ended in sunny Melbourne. In between there’s been LOTS of driving around Melbourne as my girl has been trying to get up her hours before going for her licence, 18th birthday celebrations, university offers and subject choices and a husband with a broken foot! Phew! I feel like a need a holiday sitting by the beach! Alas, that is not about to happen, so instead, I’ll take stock whilst sitting on my couch.
Reading: The Dry by Jane Harper
Cooking: sausages and mash
Eating: passionfruit and nectarine
Watching: Lion with my girl over the other side of town at Sun Theatre. Yep, getting up those driving hours! What a tear jerker! Having said that, I cried in Beverly Hills Chihuahua when the doggy friends had to part!
Hearing: the clunking of crutches coming down the hallway
Savouring: extra holiday time since the now-two uni students still have another four weeks at home!
Loving: the flowers my man brought home to celebrate our wedding anniversary tomorrow!
Liking: morning walks to the shops to buy provisions. More relaxed start to the day than jumping in the car
Marvelling: at the way my girl has reunited with a friend from years ago and it’s as if they’ve never been apart
Wishing: Trump hadn’t been elected
Hoping: the girl’s room will actually be cleaned up tomorrow!
Wanting: a little more quiet reading time
Celebrating: regaining a bit of creative mojo
Bookmarking: Craftsy classes
Attempting: a little bit of art journaling
Looking: forward to a weekend catch up with friends
Enjoying: sunshine and warm air
What have you been enjoying this month? Do you have some happy things to look forward to in 2017?
