Hey gang! This month, I’m taking stock in Hobart. My man and I have snuck away for a few days before he starts a new job. Gosh, Tassie is lovely. So much to see in such a little space! So whilst we’re kicking back and relaxing a bit, I thought I’d see what’s happening now that July is drawing to a close.
Making: not a lot at the moment. I’ve finished my latest weaving and have brought no supplies with me. I do have my sketchbook so maybe I’ll make time to do a sketch.
Reading: The Handmaid’s Tale. My friend, Isabel, invited me to join her book club and this is the current read. I saw the TV series so I’m interested to see how closely it follows the novel. I have to continually remind myself that it was written thirty or so years ago. Quite prescient.
Watching: whatever crime drama SBS on demand is recommending in my feed! The advantage of having had my man home for a few months means we have been enjoying sitting down and binging on some tv series. Latest two have been Cardinal and Valkyrien.
Cooking: nothing for the next few days. No cooking facilities in our accommodation so pouring muesli and dolloping some yogurt on top is as complex as it’s going to get.
Drinking: water at the moment, some wine with dinner, I imagine.
Listening: to A-ha and my man attempting to do the falsetto 😬
Smelling: the Aesop Geranium Leaf Body Balm that’s in our bathroom. Nice!
Wondering: how clean the kitchen will be when I get home.
Booking: tickets for the Melbourne Writers’ Festival.
Wearing: jeans, jumper, cosy socks.
Liking: being on holiday. And alfinding it a strange experience being away when it’s not school holidays. That hasn’t happened for fifteen years!
Hearing: a bird chirping.
Buying: a pack of ephemera from The Maker.
Hoping: my man enjoys his new job.
Wishing: I could be a fly on the wall and see how the kiddies look after themselves this week. It will be a bonding time for them!
Noticing: how pretty Hobart is. The Derwent, the mountains, the old sandstone buildings.
Loving: the comfy bed here.
Feeling: blessed to have a lovely man, two healthy kids. Nawh, a bit soppy! But ’tis true. There’ve been some tricky times over the last few years but I think everyone’s feeling pretty settled at the moment.
How’s your July?
