Making: a mega gift guide for Bondville with lots of ideas for kids from local online stores.
Cooking: Buddha Bowls - really just a bowl full of veggies and protein; totally my kind of cooking.
Drinking: T2 Chai tea - 2/3 milk and 1/3 tea. Is it weird that I save my leftover tea and keep it in the fridge to make it for the next day too?
Reading: school readers, magic words, and library books with my youngest.
Wanting: a large Armadillo & Co. daisy rug for our foyer.
Looking: at the last magenta blooms on the Tibouchina tree out my window.
Playing: the BFG audio book on car trips.
Deciding: on a new direction for my Consulting business.
Wishing: that I had more time to get all my kids' clothes that they have grown out of up on eBay.
Enjoying: my beautiful Cyclamen that I received as a gift from a friend.
Waiting: for my new niece to arrive in 6 months' time.
Liking: that I have a facial gift certificate to book in and look forward to.
Wondering: if Guitar Hero would make a good gift for Father's Day; it's been 10 years since we owned it when we were living in NYC. I might have a look on eBay.
Loving: the feeling of getting on top of things.
Pondering: a trip to Castaway Island, Fiji. Take me back.
Considering: the options and activities for school holidays coming up - tennis camp? gymnastics?
Buying: bush honey, wholemeal bread, butter, brown rice and salmon on the grocery list today.
Watching: River Cottage Australia and being inspired by the rural life.
Hoping: that the exchange rate improves before we go to the US this year.
Marvelling: at how my 5-year-old is learning how to read; it's all clicking into place; so exciting.
Cringing: at the amount of housework I need to get done this week.
Needing: a fireplace at our house; every winter we say the same thing.
Questioning: what to keep and what to throw out in the never-ending purge at our place.
Smelling: incense that I have been putting on as an incentive to do some yoga at home. It's not working.
Wearing: my new navy, cream and orange woollen scarf that I received from my parents for my birthday. It's perfect.

Knowing: that I have dinner sorted tonight; love that.
