Well, I very much feel like the year is whizzing by, don’t you? Please say it’s not just me. Let’s all hold hands and collectively sob into our calendars. Alternatively, let’s just crack on with this month’s Taking Stock.
Reading: THE SAME PILE OF MAGAZINES as last month. Oh wait, beg pardon, I think I’ve actually added to them -.- Man, I really need to find some time to flip through these. Anyone else find it tricky to make time for magazines? Speaking of not having time for reading…
Noticing: that I’m feeling better about not being able to read these books. I have found them so dry or difficult to work through that they’ve been sitting next to my bed for months on end. I figure if I feel I have to force myself to read it, it’s probably not worth it. I’m willing to give Everyday Sexism another go but I think I’ll need to be in the right mindset. Have you ever had a book you just couldn’t get through?
Marvelling: at this big-ass bag of home grown kale! All taken from Mathew’s garden – he’s a pretty great gardener! Now, just to find some keen as mustard hipsters to use it…just kidding, Mathew’s part Dutch. He will find a way to use kale.
It feels like it was just yesterday that I was asking this about August but how has the month of September treated you? Are you excited, apprehensive, or just plain “meh” about October? I’m a little apprehensive, myself. It’s going to be a jam-packed month me thinks, which means it’s probably going to zoom past at great speed, laughing at September as it passes by even faster on super speedy roller skates. Bastard.
These Taking Stock posts are based on an idea by the wonderful Pip Lincolne over at the Meet Me At Mike’s blog. Head here to check out her Taking Stock posts and to find a blank copy of the full list.
