Taking stock – June

I haven’t done one of Pip Lincolne’s taking stock posts for a while!

Making: my first weaving on a small rectangle loom in pink, cream and burgundy wool, fibres and fabric

Getting: tired of the ‘welcome home from camp’ signs we stuck around the house for Mr 12’s return last week!

Cooking: a four-day Italian feast from Atlas Masterclass – new recipes, all the ingredients and delicious meals!

Sipping: ginger and lemon in hot water as a change from my usual black tea

Reading: The writer laid bare by Lee Kofman – excellent read so far

Thinking: about a busy month ahead

Remembering: that when I was almost fifteen, I realised I was halfway to thirty and how that felt soooo old!

Looking: at the last Autumn leaves on the ground

Listening: to podcasts about street art

Wishing: the price of a lettuce was not so expensive!

Enjoying: a long weekend ahead

Appreciating: my warm home

Wanting: a winter with no colds, flu or Covid

Eating: cauliflower and blue cheese soup for lunch

Finishing: a pile of papers to be sorted – hopefully!

Liking: my blue pottery mugs for drinking tea

Loving: Mr 12’s funny observations

Buying: not much

Watching: the footy without any joy

Hoping: for some joy with the aforementioned footy!

Wearing: a black and white striped jumper which makes me feel like David Rose from Schitt’s Creek

Walking: to the Darebin Creek

Following: our dog, Cleo, as she pads around the house

Noticing: how dark it gets so early

Saving: my pennies by not buying lettuce!

Waiting: for the structural edit from Hachette to arrive next week

Bookmarking: articles on street art – in preparation for my structural edit

Coveting: a quilt from the Patchy Girls!

Feeling: so grateful I’m fully recovered from Covid

Hearing: the twang of my violin as I tune it

Let me know what ‘ing’ thing you’re doing over the long weekend!
