If you happened to be one of the readers of my ‘learning-blog’ that I started last year, then you would be familiar with ‘taking stock’. This is an activity that I learnt from Pip Lincolne (you know from meet me at mikes) and her amazing Blog with Pip course I completed earlier this year.

I have so much fun doing it that I definitely want it to become a regular feature of this blog. There is something about stopping and looking at things right this second, so here goes:

making : my significant something wreath project
cooking : christmas pudding, christmas biscuits, christmas cocktails … yes all things festive
drinking : anything with a refreshing tropical flavour (primarily cocktails) and of course coffee
reading : anthology magazine (fall 2014)
wanting : more time … always more time
looking : at paint swatches
playing : snap with my kids
sewing : a few Christmas presents (shhh … can’t say too much)
wishing : that the storms of the past week would retreat back to tropical queensland
enjoying : seeing my kids get their festive groove on
waiting : for our holiday (only 17 more sleeps!)
liking : how my corn has grown in the past week (ok, so there is a positive to thunderstorms)
wondering : what 2015 might bring
loving : random acts of kindness
hoping : a new something at the studio can get installed (stay tuned)
marvelling : just how many thunder-claps my kids can sleep through
needing : a cocktail
smelling : something funky in my car
wearing : blue suede shoes
following : anything to do with festive markets
noticing : I talk a lot about thunderstorms
knowing : that my attention to detail is a positive thing
thinking : let’s not get started on this, there is an idea overload in my little brain of late
bookmarking : lots of things to do with present wrapping
opening : lots of tins of tuna (lunch of choice)
giggling : at coiffed hair
feeling : excited and apprehensive and more excited

Do you ever take stock?
