After feeling like I had a busy September and October, November was definitely the month for me to slow down and take it easy. Even then, November seemed to go by in a blur. I can’t seem to recall what I did, but let’s try…
Making: no progress with my knitted blanket/throw.
Cooking: my version of a vermicilli rice noodle bowl. Well, not really cooking but rather throwing ingredients together.
Enjoying: my meal at Azuma. Really great Japanese food with a relaxed vibe. Do try it if you haven’t already.
Sorting: out payments.
Wondering: how long it takes for an apple tree to grow from seed to bearing fruit.
Waiting: for my day surgery. Still.
Deciding: on which bushwalk to do, but then not doing it due to stormy weathher forecast, only for it to end up being a lovely day. Grr…
Wishing: I could have fit in one more bushwalk.
Liking: that we can pick some herbs straight from the garden to cook with.
Disliking: feeling tired.
Considering: re-starting my Headspace meditation. I was on a 90 day streak and then forgot one day, so I stopped.
Watching: YouTube videos of the pacific striped octopus catch its prey.
Marvelling: at my client’s vegetable garden and at their generosity. Even though they’re unwell, they still wanted to give me something from their garden. I got a bunch of home-grown basil to plant in my garden that smells divine.
Wanting: more than ever to grow my own food, and all the plants to shade Hello HQ. Boy, does it get hot in here.
Needing: more sleep. Maybe a new mattress.
Wearing: my new favourite dress.
Following: the Milkwood blog for some inspiration on living a greener life.
Noticing: my pretty little blooming hydrangea.
Knowing: that I could be more productive around the home, but not feeling inclined to.
Thinking: up dream plans for the backyard.
Buying: an iPad for The Parents.
Getting: a bit sad reading about all the damage us humans have done to the Earth, yet motivated to do my best for the planet.
Admiring: all the amazing sculptures at Sculpture by the Sea Bondi.
Hoping: to start making my own friut and vegetable garden.
Loving: my very first trip to Sculpture by the Sea Bondi (you can check out my visit here and here if you’re interested) and can’t believe I haven’t been before. I had such a great time and took way too many photos. Loved it!
Giggling: with work colleagues.
Planning: ways to live a more sustainable and greener lifestyle.
Feeling: very tired trying to frantically tie-up odds and ends at work before taking time off. Also feeling incredibly anxious about day surgery and recovery.
