How is it that we have only just reached the end of July? Seriously. This has felt like the longest month ever, and I’m not even sure I did much apart from drown in work and get sick. Alright, honestly, I did go out a few times, but I’m no further with my gardening progress than last month. Overall, it has been an okay month.
Making: good progress on my knitted blanket.
Cooking: or more like throwing together a smoked salmon, kalette, quinoa, baby beetroot, goat’s cheese and rocket salad. It was surprisingly good, even if it sounds way too healthy.
Reading: about ways to hate yourself a little less and ‘The BFG’ by Roald Dahl.
Enjoying: wagyu beef at home. Mum and Dad still fondly remember eating Kobe beef in Japan, so Dad went and bought a nice cut of Australian wagyu beef. It is sooo good!
Sorting: out things between Super Boy and I.
Wondering: what my next hike/bushwalk will be. I can’t believe it’s nearly been a year since my last hike (Bundeena to Marley Beach) and how little I’ve done overall. Now I’m itching to go!
Waiting: too long to buy pots for my precious herbs.
Deciding: to make a bad decision.
Wishing: I had remembered to buy an Uncle Tetsu Japanese Cheesecake while I was out in the City.
Liking: my visit to Parramatta Winterlight and going on some of the rides. Oh, to be a kid again…
Disliking: being sick. My GP says I have a throat infection and I can’t remember the last time I felt this awful.
Considering: re-starting my Couch to 5k journey.
Watching: the Masterchef Australia finale. I can’t believe the series is over and now I don’t know what to do with my free time.
Marvelling: at these amazing aerial views of cherry blossoms in Tokyo. Stunning!
Wanting: to catch ’em all.
Needing: to look after myself and take control over my health.
Following: paths through Auburn Botanical Gardens and seeing new gardens I hadn’t noticed before.
Noticing: the beauty of empty art gallery spaces.
Knowing: that I need to find my motivation to tackle all those gardening tasks ahead of me.
Thinking: about buying new frames for my prescription glasses.
Buying: underpants and tights. The essentials.
Getting: way too excited with Pokémon GO. Finally, my childhood dreams of becoming a Pokémon Master can now come true.
Admiring: pretty buildings in Sydney CBD.
Hoping: the plum and nectarine seeds that I planted will sprout.
Giggling: with work colleagues as we hunt for Pokémon in the park or go out and have after-work drinks.
Planning: to build a raised vegetable garden for rotational crops before starting to build a permaculture garden.
Feeling: like this has been a really long month. I am so knackered. I can’t believe we only just reached the end of July and I have one more month of Winter. Bring on Spring and Summer already!
I decided to ‘take stock’ after seeing it over on Meet Me At Mike’s and you can join in too. You can check out the original ‘taking stock’ and find a list or simply see what others are up to. Let me know if you decide to join in. I’d love to see what you got up to.
