Taking Stock 06


I’m a list maker by nature. My “reminders” application on my phone is filled with a million random bits and pieces I need and want to get around to doing, so I always enjoy sitting down and writing a mini reflection list in the form of “Taking Stock”. It’s funny to think about what I’ve been up to lately (my poor frazzled mind) and it’s even funnier to read back on posts of this variety in the future. One thing I’ve noticed I’ve written about more than once is how much I need a holiday. Perhaps I should be planning one instead of just writing about it. But for now I’m broke and tired, so blog post it is.

Making: decisions.

Cooking: Asian chicken salad. Do yourself a favour and make it!

Drinking: sparkling water, and I’m obsessed with my new coffee machine I got for Christmas!
