Pip Lincolne from Meet Me At Mikes is pretty amazing and she rather cleverly came up with a brilliant idea of Taking Stock. I have been reading a fair bit about mindfulness of late and thought that this was the perfect time to look over the smaller detail of my life in this moment. It’s also a pretty cool to read back over it in a few months time.
Making: a whole lot of mess in my kitchen.
Cooking: Apple Pie Chickpeas, an epic fail as I really don’t like chickpeas! Hopefully the kids will.
Drinking: ginger and lemon kombucha.
Reading: a book on mindful eating written by a Buddhist monk and a nutritionist
Wanting: to not wear so many layers, damn winter.
Looking: at old photos of little blond-headed cherubs on my computer.
Playing: connect four with my youngest.
Wishing: for warmer weather.
Enjoying: the magnolia blooms in other peoples gardens (lucky them).
Waiting: for my computer to stop being a jerk.
Liking: so much prettiness on Instagram.
Wondering: what to cook for dinner tonight.
Loving: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
Pondering: why my computer is being such a jerk.

Smelling: chocolate granola baking in my oven.
Needing: someone else to clean my oven.
Wearing: a dress! This rarely happens.
Thinking: a lot about mindfulness
Admiring: my talented friends
Sorting: socks, so many socks for such little feet
Buying: too many cookbooks. Now, where do I put these new ones.
