Lately I've been feeling more and more like I want to be here in this space. In a blog world that I have created and moderated. No nasties, just me, doin' what I do. But in this fast paced world, blogging has been put to the side in favour of instant gratification, like fast fashion. We want it here and now, and instagram fulfills so much of that.
Here I am, lap top open, checking in. *deep relief sigh* I've missed this.
Inspired by Stella, I thought I'd do a "taking stock" post, a random one from Meet Me At Mikes (did anyone else think this was meet meat mikes like I did? No? Just me?)
Making : A quilt (For the first time! Yoo!), crochet dishcloths and some little girl bunting for my new niece
Cooking : All the most boring things ever. I'm still completely terrified of most foods. Oy. I wish I wasn't.
Drinking : Red wine. It's Wednesday night, I've had a bath, the hubs is out all night and I'm ready to PAR-TAY!
Reading: Eat This Book, by Eugene Peterson (in the bath)
Wanting: Company when I'm alone, and time by myself when I am surrounded.
Wasting: Too much time on IG and FB these days.
Wishing: For my own home. One day.
Waiting: For school holidays to be over; Milla starts Kindy next term! Yippee!
Liking: All these new blogs I rediscovered tonight that for some reason weren't on my blog lovin' reader! What!
Loving: My friends, they are life savers and sanity givers.
Wishing: I had put the hard work into Pottermore years ago so I could read the new Harry Potter story tonight!
Marvelling: At my precious Katie, 1 year old now, she is brilliant.
Needing: Strength everyday. Winter. I hate you so much, Winter. Worst season ever.
Smelling: Fresh flowers on my table, delivered by a secret flower Ninja.
Noticing: Jesus in the everyday. How amazing that we have a Maker who still cares for his Creation.
Bookmarking: All the "how to quilt" posts! Why do quilters presume I know what I'm doing when they write basic tutorials!??
Anyone out there? What have you been thinking / dreaming / feeling lately? Leave a comment and let me know, or find me on FB or IG to CHAT (can we please all bring back the blog-interaction back, wherever it may be?)
Love & Peace x
