Sometimes you just need to pause a little moment, see what’s what and take stock, (thanks Pip.)
Making…. A crocheted black scarf/shawl thing that is possibly the slowest project I’ve done. Just finish it!!
Drinking…. Herbal teas, chai, kombucha, and spiced coffee
Reading…. The Residue Years… have you read it? Incredible writing.
Wanting…. more time to read
Looking…. at dogs…I want a dog…or a cat…or maybe, both?
Playing…. music, loud
Deciding…. on what to cook for dinner, really does that ever stop?
Wishing…. on stars when they first come out. Hopefully I’ll get to 80 years old and still do this.
Enjoying…. road side bought quince jelly.
Waiting…. for my tiny potted garden to dry out a little before I plant anything again.
Liking…. the fact that it’s now school holidays
Wondering…. Cat or dog, no really? (Trying to ignore all the small people guinea pig pleas)
Loving…. lots of tiny moments
Considering…. making lemon curd, (I generally suck at it for some reason- got a favourite recipe for me?)
Buying…. Who Gives A Crap
Watching…. The light bounce around the sky at sunrise and sunset
Hoping…. something will happen and wondering what will instead if it doesn’t
Marvelling…. at strong intelligent women who aren’t afraid to do….just do.
Cringing…. At our Prime Minister. Every bloody word he utters.
Needing…. some think time
Smelling… the inside of a cut into, cooled loaf of sourdough. That’ll never get old.
Wearing…. looped scarves
Following…. nearly 700 people on instagram, love it.
Noticing…. a single nasturtium
Knowing…. never enough, and hungry for more
Thinking…. about far flung places
Admiring…. soft wintry sunsets
Sorting…. clothing, (they grow like weeds they do)
Getting…. a second coffee, hey it’s Sunday why not
Bookmarking…. inspiring permaculture gardens
Coveting: raised vegetable gardens
Disliking…. cold coffee, (was the second cup ambitious?)
Opening…. and closing my book, with not enough reading in between
Giggling…. at the lines a 3 year old can come up with. Hilarious.
Snacking…. on raw almonds and dates
Helping…. when I think I can
Hearing: black cockatoos flying overhead in the early mornings and evenings. Such a beautiful sound. (Click here to hear it.)
Beautiful list Brydie – thank you for that little snapshot. I’m with you on cringing, by the way. Omg.
Seriously. It’s just awful, every damn word of his.
I like these lists Brydie…so much fun. Have a lovely Sunday x
Thanks Jane. You too 🙂
That’s a very good list. And a dog will always be a wonderful addition to any family xx
At some point there will be a furry addition, I’m sure of it.
wow what a great list – I still love wishing on the first star and don’t get me started about cringing at the PM
It’s a habit isn’t it Johanna. I started it, and can’t seem to stop.
(As for the PM, ughh…)
This is so fun. Love it!
ah thanks Joanna 🙂
lemon curd recipe go visit kate berry the lunch lady x
I’ll check it out, thanks Paula.
Love your list Brydie! It’s funny……I’ve had most of today to myself…….and I was wandering around our back paddock thinking about ‘what is life’ and questioning myself and what I do. I didn’t find many answers, just more questions and lots of doubting myself.
I do hope your dreams come true…..soon!!!!
much love, Julie xo
Ah yes, I know this all too well Julie. Keep walking round the back paddock I reckon, there must be answers out there somewhere…just look under a few more of those unturned stones. x
I always wished we had got a dog sooner instead of waiting until the girls were in high school – always would be a golden retriever of course…… and….. don’t get me started on the PM – what an embarrassment.
No it definitely won’t be that long, I’m stalking rspca websites already!
Really enjoyed this list. I am working on a new post for Thursday and it just isn’t coming together. This allowed me to reflect some.
Sometimes you’ve just got to sit back and let it come to you rather you coming to it…if that makes sense?
That’s a mother of a list Ms Cityhippyfarmgirl. It reminds me that I haven’t posted in ages and that sometimes anything is better than ‘nowt” as my old gran would have said. Loving school holidays and time to pick up a book I started in April and finishing it and having the luxury of the optimism of starting another one. Knowing that my three weeks are set aside for cramming what wouldn’t fit into my head in term into my protesting (book lovin’) noggin is pretty much the opposite of optimism but whatchagonnadoeh? Have you ever gotten a length of thin flexible plastic tubing and swung it around and around? It makes exactly the same sound as a black cocky singing 🙂
Nope you haven’t posted in ages Ms Narf, and you’ve been missed! Maybe during those three weeks we (the readers) could have a nibble? A few words, a token sentence? 🙂
(and I did not know that about the plastic tubing thingy.)

I sucked it up and posted. Life is short. We need to share our shorts. Cheers for the little prod in the right direction and I might pinch your “posting on Sundays” idea as that’s my least busy day. You are a very good guru Ms Cityhippyfarmgirl. Where do I send the “good karma” cheque? 😉
Posting on Sunday’s is a good one, you know it’s there, that’s your deadline. Works for me anyway. As for good karma cheque, I think I owe you far more!

Brydie I’m doing exactly the same Considering, Buying, Cringing, Disliking, Coveting and Bookmarking!
All good things then Rose!
What a cool post Brydie. I love it! Mind if I borrow your idea? Would be a fabulous way to encourage conversation with my social media peeps.
You should totes get a puppy, our Little Chef (moodle) has been the most healing and wonderful addition to our family.
And wearing, is a looped scarf a snood? If yes, I have been rocking those too.
Old mate PM was at the Club for a function recently, the woman were tasked with escorting the high profile people to their chairs, no-one, and I mean no-one would walk Mr Abbott to his table. Seems he has us all cringing.
Love what you are enjoying, I must make some.
Happy week to you my friend. xo
Not my idea Anna, Pip Lincolne is the lovely crafter of this post format. It’s a good one isn’t it. She has a blank one for you to cut and paste if you do one, on her site.
As for the PM, seriously…seriously!! It’s almost worth starting an entirely new politically slanted blog.
(ps. Have a good week lovely Anna.)
taking stock is a great idea, we all need to do it more often I think…on the lemon curd, I have a favourite curd recipe I posted last year which is (almost) impossible to split or ruin, I’ve done lemon, lime and blood orange variations – http://insearchofgoldenpudding.com/2014/08/07/limes-again-2/
Thanks Beck. I’ll check that out. Impossible to split or ruin is promising as that’s what I generally do.

opening: your jar of chilli sauce at long last and gasping at how good it is!
dipping: my finger into the jar and forcing everyone around me to taste it too.
lemon curd should be a cinch!
That stuff goes on everything Alison. An absolute staple in the cupboard, so I’m happy you like it. As for the lemon curd…really it’s not! It’s trouble every time I try!
Wow! Where are you that you’re listening to black cockatoos?! We had some fly over our property a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time in 11years that we’ve seen them here. We were so excited that we tried to follow them. We’re in central Vic (and also cringing).
I’m in Sydney Linda and generally the black cockatoos appear for a month or two every six months or so (sometimes it’s a year in between.) They really are the most majestic birds, I adore them.
