Getting: Colder. Today it’s not even going to get to double digits. Yeah, I don’t like that. The only good thing winter is good for is running.
Yep deadly serious on that one. Running in Australian winter is the best. It’s the perfect temperature.
I mean check out this ripper view from my run on Sunday.
Making: Chicken egg pie for dinner. It’s a comfort dish, perfect on this cold wet miserable winter’s day.
Cooking: Pete Evan’s Ham Hock Soup. I modified this one for the pressure cooker. Would you like me to share it? Then comment below.
Drinking: Gloria Jeans Hazelnut Praline Coffee. It’s a fav, and it’s so delicious on these cold days.
Reading: A variety of books:
- Jenny-Plague Bringer by LJ Bryant. It’s book 4 (and the final book) in the Paranormal series. I’m reading this one on the iPad, and I’m only about a third of the way through.
- Unbecoming by Jenny Downham. This one is a book I can hold in my hands. I read this one when the kids have stolen the iPad to play on it.
- Crimson Peak by Nancy Holder. This one is an audiobook, which I’m listening to while doing housework or knitting. Apparently, it’s a book based on a movie. I have no idea. I saw it in our local Bolinda audio library and thought it sounded good, so giving it a go.
Wanting: Winter to over already. I’ve got chilblains because it’s been so cold. I don’t like chilblains. They suck.
Looking: Forward to the weekend, cause it will be my sister’s birthday. It will be a big one. The Big 4-0!
Playing: Guess who with Miles. He is finally understanding board games, even though he doesn’t get that I’m playing to make him win. The things we do as parents.
Deciding: On what I need to pack for our weekend away in Melb
Wishing: My sister has a wonderful birthday.
Wondering: Why I didn’t think to get Miles some long sleeve tops when we went shopping?
Loving: Miles’ got his first award for school. He was awarded the School Council reading award. So very proud of my bookworm.
Pondering: On what activities to do with the kids while we are in Melbourne.
Considering: Going to the movies on Friday to see Me Before You. It better be as good as the book
Buying: A winter wardrobe for the kids. They have had a massive growth spurt.
Watching: Orange is the New Black. I’m kinda disappointed in it (just about to start season 4). I think I need a new TV show to watch. And no I have no interest in Game of Thrones.
Hoping: My race on Sunday goes well. Decided to do the 9.4km Trail Blazers at the You Yangs on Sunday.
Cringing: At the dirty tactics of politicians.
Questioning: How kids’ clothes are disappearing? I swear they grow legs and just disappear.
Wearing: Multiple layers of clothing to keep warm.
Noticing: The sun streams through the winter, and it’s glorious (even though it’s still cold).
Knowing: That the shortest day of the year has passed, summer is on its way! Ok, I’m wishful thinking.
Thinking: Where should I drop the rest of my deadly ducks?
Admiring: That my work colleagues are helping out a fellow worker, in a time of need.
Disliking: That broccoli is $7.90 in the supermarket. Yep, no joke. It’s winter, it’s a winter vegetable, so why the hell is it so damn expensive! Not happy Jan!
Feeling: Like I need another hot drink. Hot chocolate it is then.
Snacking: Cheese and crackers. Winning.
Hearing: Sarah McLachlan – Full of Grace.
Needing: A nap or a sleep-in. Too much to do though. Oh well, I will just have to suck it up.
