I am beginning the practice of ‘taking stock’ after reading Ashley’s last two taking stock posts on her lovely blog Sed Bona. I will admit feeling a bit reluctant to start doing this at first because it can be a bit difficult to think of responses to all of these prompts, but if you are spontaneous about it, taking stock quickly becomes a very fun and enlightening thing to do!
Enjoying: setting aside a bit of time each day to color in my anti-stress coloring book. This is not my exact one, but it’s close enough!
Listening: to J.S. Bach’s trio sonata BWV 526 by the Arion Ensemble on Radio Classique.
Wearing: a pair of my super comfy Lululemon exercise pants.
Making: sure Magique keeps out of mischief.
Cooking: balsamic mushroom pasta for our dinner tonight.
Drinking: Dose Juice’s Thai coconut water.
Reading: Donna Tartt’s The Goldfinch
Looking: for the final pieces of my outfit for my brother’s wedding.
Wishing: Summer could last longer!
Liking: my Bose workout earbuds, they’re the best earphones I’ve ever owned!
Waiting: impatiently for our trip to Atlanta and South Carolina so I can shop at LK Bennett again!
Snacking: Zazubean’s Lunatic chocolate bar.
Coveting: these perpetually out of stock earrings from Links of London.
Hearing: a barking dog, children playing and the occasional car driving down our street.
Learning: to keep calm and go with the flow.
Loving: how much easier going my Darling has become since our vacation…or maybe I’m rubbing off on him?
Watching: season two of Downton Abbey over again…for the third time in two years.
Admiring: everything about life in general these days!
Getting: excited for my brother’s wedding in September and getting to see family I don’t get to see often enough!
Wondering: when I’ll get to tick something else off my bucket list!
Playing: Words with Friends with my brother and losing as usual.
Noticing: the days getting a bit shorter and an occasional nip in the wind…oh dear.
Giggling: over my Darling’s daily goofs.
Bookmarking: at least one recipe per week.
Deciding: on what color clutch and wrap to purchase for my brother’s wedding.
Hoping: Fall doesn’t move in too quickly, we’re not ready yet!
Contemplating: a day trip up to Scandinave Spa in Mont-Tremblant
Wanting: to go back to the St-Sauveur Water Park with my Darling, we had such a blast there last week!
Thinking: about when I might be able to spend a day taking pictures around town.
Knowing: that I am finally able to be who I am for the first time since I was a very small girl and I love it.
Opening: a bottle of white wine with dinner tonight.
Feeling: at peace.
Marveling: at how much life can change in three short years.
Everyone should take the time to take stock of their life! It’s such a fun exercise an if you send Ashley over at Sed Bona your post, she will ink to it on her blog.
