Eating: peaches from my Aunty's garden!
Cooking: tonight? Mushroom and brown rice burgers from The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook. (EEK! They have a new one out! Anyone want to buy me an early birthday gift?)
Drinking: filter coffee! Oh, how I love thee...
Practicing: photography. I'm not very good (don't worry, you don't have to say anything, it's just a fact) but it's a hobby I'd really like to improve on.
Mastering: the blue sky of my brainspace.
Learning: to be more mindful, and grateful for what I have.
Reading: Travelling with Pomegranates by Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor. I'm absolutely LOVING it, but it's bringing up some pretty hardcore wanderlust.
Wanting: to make some blueberry muffins.
Looking: forward to Bali! 106 days!!
Listening: Lissie. Particularly this one. Also, this amazing podcast. The second story is absolutely beautiful.
Wasting: time on Pinterest. I can't help it - so many pretty images! It's something I want to change about myself - to live less through others and more in reality.
Wishing: I could be back on my family's verandah, with a glass of red wine in hand, watching the kangaroos.
Waiting: for Uni to start again! I needed these past few weeks of freedom to remember how much I enjoy learning.
Liking: the cooler temperatures over the past few weeks! If I can't be at the beach, I'm really not a fan of hot weather.
Wondering: whether I should be pining for a tip to Vietnam in September, or Sri Lanka. Any words of advice?
Feeling: excited, happy, lucky, calm.
Hoping: to be more humble.
Watching: Sia's performance on SNL. Dang, that girl sings with such raw emotion. I saw her live perhaps 6 years ago now, and it still stands out in my mind as one of the very best performances I've ever seen.
Needing: to remember to put my retainer in at night - I've been grinding. (TMI?)
Smelling: Sukin's hydrating mist toner - it gives my poor, officey face a little refresher and the smell is calming.
Wearing: the weather's been all over the place lately, so I've not been wearing anything with real consistency.
Noticing: new shoots on my chili and zucchini plants!
Grateful for: my job, my recently re-sparked career ambition, coffee breaks with girls at work... I'm so lucky.
Loving: Rufus' outstretched arm in the middle of the night. When I fall into bed after him and he stirs; his arm reaches over and pulls me in, close to him - that happy little nest of warmth.
