It’s been about a month since I last did a Taking Stock post, I decided to do it again because quite a bit has changed since my last TS post (I was a bit of a wreck) and it has been popping up in my RSS reader lately, so I thought I’d jump on board that #NZBloggers train and join in.
Making: Nothing much at the moment, I’ve been pretty sick lately, and aside from watching online TV and napping, I haven’t been doing much at all.
Cooking: I made some pumpkin soup on Tuesday, and it was amazing.
Drinking: Lots of juice and lemsip.
Reading: The trashiest of trashy magazines, really mindless stuff for when my brain won’t focus. I just finished a couple of books though Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella, which was awesome and Twitterature: The World’s Greatest Books in Twenty Tweets or Less, which was okay (it had it’s funny moments).
Wanting: To have something to do. I’m so bored.
Looking: At hotels in Australia for a possible end of year trip (just in case we don’t end up going to Canada). My eyes may have popped out of my head when I saw the room prices per night at the Langham Sydney (Turns out the eye popping prices was down to me being an idiot, I had selected 4 children, instead of none, and so it was only showing me suites).
Playing: With my tamagotchi. I downloaded the app a few weeks ago (I deleted it yesterday after killing three; I’m just as bad at keeping tamagotchis alive as I was when I was a teen).
Deciding: How many nights we’d stay at the Langham if we end up going to Australia.
Wishing: That I had a clean house and places to put everything
Enjoying: Being able to rest. A much as I am over being sick, it has been nice to catch up on sleep.
Waiting: For the minion movie to come out.
Liking: The new vanilla and apple white chocolate from Whittaker’s new artisan range, it’s amazing (in the words of Stewie Griffin, OMG THERE’S AN ORGY IN MY MOUTH – you’d think I’d be able to find a youtube clip for that, but no).
Wondering: What will happen in the iZombie season finale.
Loving: The gluten/dairy free popcorn chicken from Miss Kangsta in the food court at the Capital Market on Willis Street.
Pondering: Why, is it that when I’m sick I sleep really well?!
Considering: Doing a night course. Not what I would do though. Something creative, maybe.
Buying: eBooks, magazines, juice and medicine (all the things a sick person needs).
Watching: iZombie, I have watched episode 11 more times than I can count (definitely my favourite episode so far) and romantic comedies (13 Going On 30 is the best).
Hoping: We go to Canada at the end of the year.
Marvelling: At the stars.
Cringing: People being dumb, which is what I cringe about all the time tbh.
Needing: Dessert! Okay, wanting, not needing.
Questioning: The meaning of life (not really).
Smelling: My Ecoya caramelised plum pudding candle; I’ve been burning it a bit lately.
Wearing: Maroon ponte pants, a long merino wool dress and a knitted poncho type thing.
Following: Blogs again! I’m so glad I ended up downloading Readkit.
Noticing: I have been less stressed out lately. I love my workmates and am so grateful to have a job, but sometimes it drives me insane.
Knowing: Everything is going to be okay.
Thinking: About picking a scab. I won’t though.
Admiring: Phillip. I know, feelings are gross, but considering what he’s going through, he has been amazing.
Sorting: My office out, because it’s a hell of a mess at the moment. I feel like I need more storage, but I probably just need to get rid of stuff.
Getting: A bit bored of staying home, not doing much.
Bookmarking: A few blog posts on readkit to go back to later on (mainly DIYs to try).
Coveting: A tidy house, with places to put everything (we ran out of cupboard space when we bought our new fridge). Seriously, I’m like a hoarder with an inner minimalist, and it drives me insane.
Disliking: Headache dreams. The dreams I have when I have headaches in my sleep are the worst things ever. The most memorable was when I had a migraine. I was in Gotham City, and then penguin ran around turning EVERY single light on.
Giggling: At this video of a dog, failing and catching food in its mouth.
Feeling: A little headachey.
Snacking: I haven’t really been snacking on anything lately.
Wishing: We knew what Phillip has. Hopefully we’ll find out soon.
Hearing: Don’t Wait by Mapei – I’m currently listening to Spotify’s Evening Commute Mix.
