Taking Stock: February 2014

February seems to have left without saying good-bye, and I’m struggling to wonder if it was ever around at all. For those of us in the southern hemisphere, this means an official farewell to Summer and hello to Autumn. But before I skip too far ahead with plans of warm clothing and cozy nights in, here’s how the last month of Summer looked for me…

Making: a knitted, striped blanket/throw. Still. This project is taking longer than I would have liked. That said, my knitting has been quite casual.

Cooking: Tomato and Bean Soup. I’m hooked. It’s sooo yum.

Drinking: coffee as well as water, but I could do with more water.

Reading: nothing more than my Twitter or Instagram feed.

Wanting: to go shopping for new lingerie.

Looking: on Etsy for home decΓ³r inspiration.

Playing: ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams. Listening to this makes me, well, happy.

Deciding: what clothes to keep and what clothes to donate.

Wishing: to travel.

Enjoying: the last remnants of Summer and my friend’s wedding.

Waiting: for nothing in particular.

Liking: ruby red nail polish.

Wondering: if The Parents would want to holiday in Japan.

Loving: a new pair of heels I bought. Honestly. So. Damn. Sexy.

Pondering: if I’ll ever get the chance to wear said sexy shoes.

Considering: starting some gardening work on the front yard.

Watching: Season 1 of ‘Black Books’.

Hoping: I can get time off work to holiday in Japan.

Marvelling: at how many talented knitters there are.

Needing: more sleep and more exercise.

Smelling: rain.

Wearing: singlets and shorts when I’m not at work. It’s been too hot for anything else.

Following: my personal mantra of trying things outside my comfort zone.

Noticing: how much darker it is in the mornings and evenings.

Knowing: that I’m not making effective use of my time.

Thinking: of ways I can DIY to decorate my bedroom.

Feeling: not too good in last few days. A virus has taken me out. Damn you, virus!

Admiring: people who are committed to running.

Sorting: my life out. Still. It’s an ongoing process (so I’m told).

Buying: a new dress, some new bling, and shoes. Oh man, the shoes…

Saving: all my pennies for a holiday after buying those shoes.

Getting: excited at the thought of decorating my bedroom.

Disliking: being ill 😦

Opening: windows to let the Summer evening breeze in.

Giggling: with work colleagues.

Feeling: sad that Summer will be over.

Has February been fab for you? Why or why not? I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to. Let me know if you care to share.
