I’ve been home from my camping trip for about 4 days, and I’m finding it hard to get back into the swing of things. I just got used to doing nothing and now all of a sudden, I’ve got to get back into doing ALL THE THINGS!
This is not helped by the fact that J is away for the week, so it’s only me to motivate me to get things done. I’ve been writing a list, and sadly blogging wasn’t on it.
I’ve found it hard to find motivation, inspiration and the time to write. I suppose, it’s not a priority at the moment. But I saw this post (inspired by this one), and I thought it might kick start my year of writing.
Making: A shelving unit for laundry baskets. Call it nesting, call it feed up with the mess, but I think that it’s time that things like this get done. I’ll be sharing it as soon as it’s finished.
Cooking: Peach syrup cake. It’s also what we’ve been eating!
Drinking: Soda water. I took the soda stream camping (I love that it’s not connected to a power outlet), and drank soda, lime and bitters! Delicious, refreshing and much lower sugar content than having lemonade.
Reading: Orange Is The New Black – Piper Kerman and Led By Destiny – Kinga Freespirit.
Wanting: To meet Baby Reilly.
Looking: Through The Diggers Club catalogue to by new seeds for the coming planting seasons.
Playing: A lot of Phase 10, Vision and Cribbage.
Deciding: On what we should plant. We’ve narrowed it down to things we eat a lot of, and can justify buying small amounts of other things, or going without.
Wishing: That J didn’t have to work in Sydney this week. Our house is big and empty when he’s not here.
Enjoying: Learning how to do nothing, or not very much. I usually find it a struggle.
Waiting: For another 8 weeks.
Liking: Opshopping for baby clothes. So much cheaper, such a great range and surprise at what you might find, not to mentions better for our planet.
Wondering: How I’ll fill my days now that I’m no longer going to work. I’ve got a few things up my sleeve and I hope that this here blog will see a little more action.
Loving: The warm days!
Pondering: Gertrude, our broody hen and if the fertalised eggs that we’ve ordered will hatch.
Considering: The heat, water consumption, planting, buying land (one day), getting more produce out of our garden etc.
Hoping: That the end of something I’ve been trying to get out of for a little while comes sooner rather than later.
Marvelling: At how easy things can be if you just try.
Needing: A pedicure. I’m not one for paying for pampering, but it’s almost at the point where I can’t reach my own feet, and I really just want someone to pamper me.
Smelling: The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector.
Wearing: Lots of dresses, I don’t like waist bands.
Following: A pre-natal yoga DVD, and hoping to do more of it.
Noticing: How dry the grass has gotten around here in the last 2 weeks.
Knowing: What I need to do to keep my stress levels low, and working towards those things.
Thinking: About Baby Reilly, I can’t get her out of my mind. What we still need to do to get more prepared, how our life will be turned upside down and all around when she gets here.
Feeling: Well, really well!
Admiring: So many people who just keep on keeping on.
Sorting: Through through my wardrobe, the house and the baby’s room.
Buying: Seeds, eggs and books online.
Getting: Ready, organised, relaxed.
Bookmarking: All the things on Pinterest.
Disliking: The constant wind. We live on top of a hill in a beach town, IT’S ALWAYS WINDY.
Opening: Too many chocolates, left over Christmas treats. But the problem is that I have to eat them, for them to be gone!
Giggling: At J looking after Gertrude. He’s such a daddy chook!
