Taking Stock: May 2014


Oh May, why are you in such a hurry to leave? Despite the spell of unseasonably warm weather, there’s a definite cold bite in the air at night and I can tell you’re making way for Winter *sigh* Anyway, I can’t say I got up to much this month, but here we go….

Making: some progress on my knitted throw, but conceding that it may not get finished until next year. Or perhaps, the year after that.

Cooking: nothing really.

Drinking: coffee, water and some tea. I think I’m getting better at drinking water.

Reading: or should I say re-reading, ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky.

Wanting: to do so much around the home, but not knowing where to start.

Looking: for home interior and garden inspiration. Still.

Playing: ‘Problem’ by Ariana Grande feat. Iggy Azalea.

Deciding: to no longer visit Japan this year and to instead visit my Paternal Grandparents in the USA.

Wishing: money didn’t have to be an issue.

Enjoying: good conversations with The Bestie.

Waiting: for news regarding my annual leave.

Liking: the sunshine and unseasonably warm Autumn weather. It almost feels like Spring.

Wondering: what that soreness/light pain around my right hip muscle is all about.

Loving: the Vivid Sydney Festival.

Pondering: why people think being a social worker is a good job, and if I’m doing enough to live up to that job title.

Considering: a drastic wardrobe clean out.

Watching: Season 2 of Black Books, with a side of House Rules and a sprinkle of MasterChef Australia.

Hoping: family will be okay.

Marvelling: at the stupidity of the Australian government. Seriously, who voted for them?

Needing: to start doing some light yoga again.

Smelling: like Cherry Blossom from L’Occitane.

Wearing: dresses, but with tights, and my Younger Sister’s coat.

Following: nothing or nobody in particular.

Noticing: the lemons slowly turning yellow on my little lemon tree. 😀

Knowing: I could be doing more.

Thinking: too much about McDonald’s fries.

Admiring: people who are commited to blogging.

Sorting: out other people’s lives.

Buying: black pleather pants and wondering if I’ll ever wear them.

Saving: up for a sooner-than-expected trip.

Getting: harder to wake up on time in the mornings.

Disliking: how many times I get asked if I’m married or have a boyfriend. Also, that drive to work in the morning. Grr…

Opening: boxes of treats sent to me and The Parents from my Younger Sister in Japan. Thanks Sis!

Giggling: with work colleagues, and friends over dinner.

Feeling: content with my lot in life.

There’s not much more to say really. It feels like a lot happened in May, but at the same time, not much really happened. Don’t you hate that feeling?

    Interesting thoughts – I’ve never tried to itemise my day/week/month in that way, but I do have about a thousand post it notes, each with a reminder about things to buy/do/achieve – maybe I’m read them one day. 🙂

    Vivid is good isn’t it?

      It’s pretty tricky for me to remember my month this way, but I guess that’s the challenge. I might need to try the post-it note system. Haha 😉

      And yes, Vivid is great 😀
