For those readers who didn’t know: I am currently doing the Blog with Pip online course! And boy is it wonderful.
This week’s assignment is about stopping and thinking where you’re at. I like the idea of that.
So here goes. Feel free to copy and paste and do in your own blog, or if you’re an old school journal writer, pop it in there!
Making : A mess of my summer vege garden – or more like, the bugs are!
Cooking : Eggplant and Tomato chutney! Blog post to come!
Drinking : A pear cider
Reading: ‘Reading Madame Bovary’ by Amanda Lohrey
Wanting: A new kitchen! Desperately
Looking: Out the window at my dying ferns
Playing: Ukulele. As often as I can!
Deciding: That this blogging business is fun, and its making me cook more and try new things!
Wishing: I had more time. But doesn’t everyone?
Enjoying: My neighbours cheeky cat and her curiosity of our chickens
Waiting: For our chinese takeout order to be ready because we cant eat chutney alone for dinner
Liking: My new gingham tea towel
Wondering: If this blog might one day lead me somewhere?
Loving: My enduringly patient fella, Dion
Pondering: How my lovely neighbour, who is a midwife and a single mum ‘does it’?
Considering: Buying my first real camera
Watching: Nothing on TV at the moment so sunsets instead

Feeling: See above
Admiring: My Mum
Sorting: Out my wardrobe. One op shop is going to get a big haul tomorrow
Buying: New plates, tea towels and general little “props” for food photos
Getting: Inspired by other food blogs
Bookmarking: Nothing. I’m a dog-ears girl all the way!
Disliking: Assholes. Very much.
Opening: Nothing too exciting. Certainly not enough nice wine!
Giggling: Haven’t in a while – better get onto that!
Feeling: Hot and sweaty. Go away Melbourne heat wave!
