Taking Stock: June


It seems I forgot to take stock of June and whether that’s because it starts with J-U…just like July does, and so it sort of runs amorphously together, or not…I couldn’t rightly say.  It totally happened though, and on the flip side, it was like sand through the hourglass…as so many of these days of our lives do….possibly I’m just amusing myself here, it’s not unheard of.

Making: A moss terrarium.  Seriously.
Cooking: up a nice fever.
Drinking: Water and tea.
Reading: ‘Plan B’ for this READATHON!!
Wanting: a medicinal whisky.
Looking: at the dog with very muddy feet, sitting on my bed.
Playing: ‘What’s in this drink?’ – hubs has given me a green smoothie that looks like a fresh horse poo, and he has said it is good for me.
Deciding: Whether or not to have a mini-retreat to the caravan next week.
Wishing: I could have a nice bowl of Pho.
Enjoying: school holidays!
Waiting: for someone to check on me on my sick bed.
Liking: that I’ve converted two of my kids to become avid op-shoppers.
Wondering: if I will actually be well enough to keep my lunch dates.
Loving: That I can crochet stuff!
Pondering: What color my friend would like her wrist warmers to be.
Considering: Travel plans.
Watching: The Paradise.  I’m spoilt for choice by Netflix.
Orange is the New Black comes back soon.
Marvelling: At how hard it is to have a nanna nap when you actually have the time and space to do it!
Needing: a nice neck rub.
Smelling: A muddy bloody dog!
Wearing: A tribute to Bonds...trackies and a sloppy joe, both op-shopped…NOICE!
Following: Victoria at Boiled Eggs and Soldiers
Noticing: the cleaning fairy needs to do a quick whip-round.
Knowing: the cleaning fairy is a delusion.
Thinking: how nice it would be if it wasn’t.
Admiring: My raspberry linen scarf from Scarlett Jones…it’s my sensory happy place.
Sorting: socks…ad nauseum…
Buying: Toilet paper…with everyone at home, we go through a shitload!
Getting: peckish for the first time in a few days.
Bookmarking: my book with the surprise bookmark I found inside it that was once someone else’s boarding pass.
Disliking: The cough that rolls like thunder in your chest…bleaghhh!
Opening: The soda water and a dash of balsamic vinegar…true!
Giggling: at my own jokes.
Feeling: happy but crappy.
Snacking: on Codral.
Coveting: the lives of writers who do the actual writing stuff.
Helping: myself to a nice slice of sanity and sunshine.
Hearing: The dog snoring!

How’s your month/year going?

Terrarium - told you!

About Alyson

I am a 45+ chick. I live in the country with 3 almost (apparently) adult children teenagers, 1 husband and many animals. Here's the thing: The black dog also hangs with me occasionally and, thank the baby cheeses, life is not perfect. That's OK, because I work hard to be a glass half-full person and I can't lie! I write to help my head, heart and humor...and I tell myself 'I've got this!'
