Spring has sprung! I’m so happy to welcome the warmer weather and to finally come out of my hibernation. September has been a nice mix of resting at home and getting out and about. I’m currently looking forward to spending more time outdoors, but here’s a look back at what I’ve been up to this month.
Making: nothing at all this month.
Cooking: gnocchi with plenty of greens.
Reading: ‘The Angel’s Game’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafón, which I’m enjoying much more than ‘Dracula’. I gave up on ‘Dracula’ because I found it difficult to get into.
Sorting: out nothing this month, even though I have a lot of “adulting” to do.
Wondering: what activities to do when my Younger Sister visits at the end of the year.
Waiting: for nothing in particular.
Deciding: to finally start bushwalking again.
Wishing: that raised garden beds would magically appear in my backyard.
Liking: warm evening strolls around Lake Parramatta.
Disliking: that I have some kind of muscle tear in my upper left arm.
Considering: re-starting my basic daily yoga routine.
Watching: ‘Castle’ with The Bestie.
Marvelling: at native Australian plants and flowers.
Wanting: to play more Overwatch.
Needing: to do a lot more gardening. I already had a big weekend with re-potting flowers, sowing seeds, topping up soil and trimming some plants. However, there’s still so much I need to get done.
Following: the path around the oval near my office as I attempt to get more steps in my day.
Noticing: all the beautiful wisteria in bloom.
Knowing: that I need to be more mindful about what I eat and to drink more water.
Thinking: too much about him…
Buying: one too many drinks.
Getting: stupidly excited upon hearing that “car camping” is a thing. I really want to try it now!
Admiring: the full moon.
Hoping: that the iron supplements I’m taking will help with my energy levels. My blood tests came back with everything within range, but I still think it’s worth a shot.
Loving: my little hike to Jellybean Pool. It was so nice to finally start bushwalking and get amongst nature again.
Giggling: with Super Boy as he obligingly takes my silly pictures.
Planning: to build a wooden trellis for my beloved jasmine to climb over and be awesome.
Feeling: much better, health-wise, this month.
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.
