I found this fabulous list over at The Plumbette recently (and I think I saw one on Woogs World too) and really loved it. I figured that Christmas Eve was an appropriate time to post something like this and plan on doing it regularly in 2016.
Making : an effort to get this new blog venture up and running.
Cooking : lots of Christmas treats including ridiculous amounts of caramel popcorn that I now eat for breakfast. #unneccessary
Drinking : more Diet Coke than is good for me along with lots of lovely Christmas bubbles.
Reading: lots of fabulous blogs on all sorts of subjects – building and renovation being the main one.
Wanting: more of those Vegemite bagel crisps. #stupidlygood
Looking: for ways to engage with women who are interested in renovating.
Playing: with my cat, Potato. Which is pretty much me poking him while he’s trying to sleep. #goodtimes
Deciding: what I want to achieve in 2016.
Wishing: that there was not a direct correlation between the amount of caramel popcorn I eat and the tightness of my pants.
Enjoying: morning swims at the beach.
Waiting: for the next Jason Bourne movie to come out.
Liking: doing lots of Christmas baking.
Wondering: why humans are not so nice sometimes.
Loving: my husband.
Pondering: ways to be more efficient.
Considering: running away to join the circus.
Buying: less than I used to.
Watching: House of Cards Series 3 – less murder but still plenty of machinations.
Hoping: that it’s not too wet on Christmas Day.
Marvelling: at the good old-fashioned Illusionists we saw the other night. It really was magic.
Cringing: whenever I see Donald Trump.
Needing: a hug at the end of a challenging year.
Questioning: how much it costs to park in the city.
Smelling: the star jasmine on summer mornings.
Wearing: my new blue suede brogue-sneakers. And loving them.
Following: my nose to our favourite Thai restaurant.
Noticing: the good things rather than the bad things.
Knowing: that I feel better when I eat well.
Thinking: about how to add value wherever I can.
Admiring: all the women out there who create amazing blogs every day. I’m late to the party, but loving it.
Sorting: out my wardrobe and donating clothes. Even if they’re good, if I’m not wearing them, they’re no good to me.
Getting: a move on.
Bookmarking: future sewing projects and recipes I’ll cook one day.
Coveting: some new stools for our kitchen bench.
Disliking: the fact that I have really let exercise fall off the radar this year.
Opening: a bottle of those Christmas bubbles I mentioned before.
Giggling: at my husband’s ability to lose keys without the slightest bit of effort. It’s a talent!
Feeling: excited about what 2016 holds for us.
hummus and carrot sticks caramel popcorn.
Helping: my sister get settled in her new house.
Hearing: the cat miaow at 4.30am because he’s decided that’s when breakfast should be served.
Have you taken stock lately? Which of these items really strikes a chord with you? Do you have a caramel popcorn problem like I do?
