Brr! It is a chilly ol’ day in Melbourne! The sky is blue at the moment but the air is chill and there are predictions of hail later in the day. That’s okay by me because I can stay tucked up inside for the rest of the day. I am going to sit inside with my cup of tea, pop something to slow cook on the stove, and continue with a bit of crochet… and laundry duties! But before that, a ‘take stock’ of what has been a bit of an up and down month for us.
Making: this blanket. So many colours! I made up my own colour combo so it’s taken a few trips to the wool shop to pick up the colours that I think work together
Eating: left over cauliflower, potato, leek and bacon soup
Drinking: chilli hot chocolate. Love that hint of a spicy finish!
Cooking: beef casserole for dinner with math and peas
Smelling: a combo of the peanut butter and choc chip cookies I baked this morning and my boy’s pesto pasta
Hearing: keyboards clacking from all members of the family
Cringing: at the clip of Trump shoving the PM of Montenegro. It’s the smug look on his face and the jacket buttoning. Can’t stop myself from repeat viewing!
Waiting: to read an email from my parents. They’re on their first day of a four week trip to Canada.
Loving: that my girl now has her licence! No more ferrying her to Pilates and singing lessons!
Worrying: that my girl now has her licence! Now my ears are pricked up waiting for two people to drive in the driveway!
Coveting: this coat
Knowing: my man is gong to get rained on when he goes out for a run
Laughing: at my thirty year school reunion. Thirty years! Can you believe that? I’m sure when I used to look at the photos of the old girls at the reunions in our school newsletter they looked SO OLD! Not like us groovy bunch.
Trying: to cut back on my food waste. Mushing up lots of vegies for soup, buying in smaller quantities, and putting together leftovers for lunches
Enjoying: a new volunteer role with Behind the Wire
Hoping; my man will find a less stressful job soon
Looking: forward to a long weekend away with my man
And that’s May almost done and dusted! How’s the last month been for you?
