Making: gratitude lists. So much to be thankful for!
Cooking: … By show of hands, who thinks we should change this to Eating? *raises hand and looks around*
Drinking: Hot chocolate with marshmallows a lot more these days. Yum.Â
Reading: several things including The Richest Man in Babylon, a bunch of magazines and this article that People Daily did on my dad! I’m also contemplating reading Goosebumps just for fun’s sake. That was daddio’s present to Amani and she’s already finished one book and it’s not even been four days. A walk down memory lane seems like a good idea, don’t you think?Â
Wanting: a heater in my life. Possibly one that is battery operated that I can pop into my handbag at any point. My fingers are numb and I’m afraid I may not make it to the end of this post before they fall off. Can you imagine what real winter would be like?? Jeez.
Playing: Ariana Grande’s album and secretly liking it. Is it wrong to like music from someone who looks like they’re 12 years old?
Wasting: no time this month. So much to do and only 31 days in July. Â
Sewing: … One day, people. One day I’ll have something for ya.Â
Wishing: we could have Amani’s surprise party all over again! I secretly love planning things and I wouldn’t mind going through the arrangements all over again.Â
Enjoying: life at the moment. Love and gratitude all over the place!
Liking: Palm tree prints on clothes.Â
Wondering: whether I’m the only one who fantasizes of one day having a room in their home full of crafts supplies, stationery and other such bits and bobs. I get excited over string, guys. String.
Loving: you guys for choosing to be a part of my journey and being so supportive and sweet. Seriously, I’m sending tonnes of love and warmth your way muffins!Â
Hoping: that I never have a gecko fall on me like it almost did two weeks ago when I closed the door and it fell right in front of me. yuck. yuck.Â YUCK.Â
Marveling: AT TRANSFORMERS AND THEIR AWESOMENESS!!! Have you watched Age of Extinction yet? Have I ever shared my obsession with Transformers with you and my hope to one day have a wall in my house dedicated to Bumble Bee’s transformation from sexy car to mean machine? I may have to dedicate a whole blog post to this.
Needing: that heater I talked about earlier.Â
Smelling: Flowers. I’ve been buying a whole lot lately. In fact, I’m on the hunt for new, interesting vases to keep up with my flower mania.Â
Wearing: a monochrome dress and a white cardigan over that. Although if I wasn’t too lazy about it, I’d add some socks, scarf and big old blanket.Â
Following: Orange Is The New Black. (p.s. any new shows you’ve been loving lately?)
Noticing: that my closet is in need of a good pair of blue denim jeans. I’ve been sticking to pencil skirts and dresses so much that I sorta ignored jeans. Sorry Mr. Denim, I have not forgotten thee.Â
Knowing: that I am destined to live an amazing life. I hope you believe that for yourself too.Â
Thinking: about a fireplace and how perfect that would be right now.Â
Feeling: really excited about some news that I can’t wait to share with you guys soon!Â
Bookmarking: almost every single page on Warsan Shire’s Teaching My Mother How To Give Birth. How can one woman have so much genius in her?Â
Opening: and closing doors a lot more carefully after that gecko incident. Yuck.
Giggling: at this picture. So true!
Feeling:really, really emotional after watching this video. It’s funny, I’d have fed right into that stereotype mentality but love that they were able to spread a beautiful message across.Â
