Oh my, is July over already? I had intended to do a lot more, but I guess I never got around to it. Story of my life. Ah well. At least I managed to squeeze in a hike this month, which was probably the highlight. Otherwise it was just eating, working, more eating, and sleeping.
Making: no progress on my knitted blanket/throw.
Cooking: vegetable minestrone, Thai green curry, and the most amazing falafel roll ever (although that’s more putting bits together than cooking). Still, utterly delicious!
Reading: very little this month.
Enjoying: being outside in the sun.
Sorting: through receipts and payslips. Yep, it’s tax return time here in Australia.
Wondering: if I should go to IKEA and buy that sofa and shelving unit, or save my money instead.
Waiting: for my hair to grow longer. It’s been nine months since I got the chop and it’s only grown about two to three inches.
Deciding: that I really ought to clean up Hello HQ.
Wishing: I lived closer to bushwalking trails so it would be easier to access them.
Liking: time spent in the backyard re-potting plants and tidying up.
Disliking: the awkward small-talk with Super Boy.
Considering: taking The Parents on a weekend bushwalking trip.
Watching: nothing at all this month.
Marvelling: at my thriving camellia. I’m surprised it’s still alive. I’m not really good with any kind of flowering plant.
Wanting: a new dress or two.
Needing: to clean poor Chiswick, my precious car.
Wearing: the usual Summer dresses with tights. I’m counting down until Spring time and bare legs, even if they are a little pale.
Following: the Spit Bridge to Manly walking trail.
Noticing: lots of different houses around Sydney. If only I was brave enough to take pictures of all of them, but I don’t want to be caught out as that weird girl taking pictures of other people’s houses…
Knowing: that I haven’t been motivated to get things done or go out and do things this month.
Thinking: about how things ended with Super Boy and why. Not in a sad or longing kind of way. Just reflecting and processing it before I can truly move on.
Buying: not a lot this month, although I’ve done a lot of browsing online. A splurge may be imminent.
Getting: too excited about finding sea shells. Also getting too excited about rock textures.
Admiring: pretty sea shells and the endless blue ocean.
Hoping: I’ll find the motivation to start getting things done around Hello HQ.
Giggling: with work colleagues.
Planning: on making a start with the front yard.
Feeling: grateful that I live in Sydney, and hopeful that I will make the most out of what it has to offer.
