Taking Stock: March ‘18

Gang! How are you? Long time no blogging! I don’t know what I’ve been doing with myself to have so much time pass and apparently nothing to blog about. Maybe if I take stock, à la Pip Lincolne, I’ll work out what’s been going on.

Eating: tuna pasta

Cooking: stewed plums. Autumn means plums, yes?

Drinking: wine, tea

Making: the weaving in the photo. It was my first commission! Woohoo! Gave one of my weavings to a friend’s daughter, her grandmother saw it and thought she’d like one too! Delivery is happening tomorrow so I hope she likes it 😬

Watching: Homeland, my footy team on the telly. I always feel like the year is really underway once the football season starts

Reading: Forest Dark. I borrowed it from the library and when I went to renew it they said it was on reserve and renewing was a ‘no can do’. Second time that has happened to me! So I had to go and buy book so I could finish it!

Hearing: thunder. It’s going to be a pretty stormy night judging by the radar

Waiting: for my boy to come home from work

Wondering: what to cook for dinner tomorrow. So many meals to think of…

Planning: to go the bookshop this week, maybe buy some magazines, have some quiet reading time, visit Opendrawer

Pondering: my next weaving design

Buying: wool from Wool and the Gang. My man gave me a voucher for Christmas and they have a sale on at the moment so more bang for my buck!

Marvelling: at how social media can create new friendships. Discovered one of my fave weavers who I follow on Insta goes to the same yoga school I go to, her son goes to the same school my boy went to, and we have a mutual friend! We’ve had a chat and will have a catch up! Lovely!

Liking: that daylight savings will end soon. The mornings are becoming very dark!

Loving: the autumn colour

Knowing: the next couple of months will be spent raking up leaves. I look at the trees in my front garden and think, ‘ay, ay, ay, so many leaves, so little space in the bin!’

Wishing: the council would start the street leaf collection earlier. I don’t think they start until mid-April and by that time so many leaves are already carpeting the footpaths

Celebrating: my mum and dad’s 50th wedding anniversary. Such a long time, yes? Dad used liquid paper in his card to Mum to signify some of the rough patches and things they would rather have erased! Funny man! But they have stuck together through all the icky bits. Pretty admirable.

Remembering: to buy Easter eggs for the egg hunt – because even when you’re 21 and 19 the egg hunt is still an essential part of Easter! The Easter Bunny received a scolding when the egg hunt was neglected a couple of years ago. Oops!

Hmm…still don’t quite know why I haven’t turned my mind to chatting to you, lovely blog buddies! Has anything interesting, happy, exciting been happening in your world?

  1. I too have been eating tuna pasta and plums (though not together)! I like plums stewed, but they’re delicious fresh too. The colour is so beautiful!

    Agree that the year feels like it’s ‘properly’ underway when the footy starts. What a Melbourne thing to feel. Dees are 2 from 3 so far, woot!

    And I’m also glad that daylight saving is over, those mornings were way too dark – felt like you were waking up at 4am and it’s actually 7.30!

    I’m looking forward to seeing you at book club next week. Til then, keep up the excellent weaving work and all your other pursuits xx and the blogging too!
