Making: a sea-glass pendant, I pulled out my old jewellery making tools and wire, watched a couple of tutorials and had a play, Not perfect, but definitely wearable.
Cooking: lots of new dishes from some new cookbooks I treated myself to.
Sipping: lots of cold drinks - mainly water, but I am enjoying an icy cold G &T in the evenings
Reading: all the time. Lately I have enjoyed these books.
Looking: forward to my weekly yoga classes starting up again this Wednesday after a long Christmas/New Year break.
Enjoying: the antics of Meeka
Eating: cherry tomatoes from my garden
Loving: my dahlias, even though they are now suffering from the excessive heat, lack of water (we have to pay for water usage, so unfortunately I do have to make some sacrifices over summer)and mildew.
Buying: back to school supplies, and always groceries for the teens.
Watching: Little Women at the movies the other day - beautifully filmed, such a nice movie to wile away a couple of hours in air conditioned comfort.
Hoping: it rains where it's really needed in Australia and New Zealand, without causing more flooding and damage.
Needing: to finish attaching the joining pieces to my Ice Cream Soda blossoms - I only have 27 to go, so in theory, I could get them finished by the end of February, if I get motivated enough, then I can start joining the actual blossoms together.
Wearing: as little as possible while still staying decently dressed - it's hot! My linen dresses are on high rotation, as is a new Ogden cami I made from some rayon scraps. I made this one a size up from my first attempt a couple of years ago and am much happier with the fit.
Getting: just a little excited for our family holiday over Easter at Hahei Beach, I'm really needing some vitamin sea, and we're going to take Miss J and Mr B to Cathedral Cove for the first time, one of my favourite places.
Bookmarking: recipes in my new cookbooks
Coveting: lots of the dahlias I see for sale, I could go quite mad with purchasing tubers for next year, but I only have a limited space and water supply for them.
Feeling: Hot, it is summer in New Zealand finally.
Hearing: cicadas during the day and crickets in the evening - signs of summer.
