Taking Stock: Summer 2015

A  little late, I know.

I’ve got to be the only blogger in blogosphere that hasn’t posted something this year. My apologies. In between Naivasha, Nairobi and a trip to Tanzania, there hasn’t been time to blog.

This is my third ‘Taking Stock’ post. I do them quarterly and I think it’s a neat way to record my life in little bits.

Making: Lists. All kinds of lists.
Lists of my sources of income this year.
Lists of the luxuries I want to gift myself with.
Lists of things I need to do before I get back to SA.
Lists of people I need to see before I get back to SA.
Lists of countries I would like to visit this year and next.
Lots of lists.

Cooking:  Made pizza for supper last night with my sister! 🙂

Drinking: Water

Reading: Sorry friends.

Wanting: A successful academic year, this year. To graduate with distinction (Help me God).

Playing: FKA Twigs, Banks, Jessie Ware. Thank you Rama!

Wasting: Nothing, I think.

Sewing:  Hoping to get a tailor to sew me an Ankara/Kitenge maxi-skirt with a thigh-high slit, and high-waist shorts. Recommendations are welcome (Nairobi-based, please).

Wishing: I could get a ticket to Europe.

(I will post this on here till my parents get the hint. If it isn’t loud enough already. If they’ll even read this. LOL)

Enjoying: The time I’ve got left in Nairobi.

Liking: Kericho Gold’s new herbal specialty teas and infusions. So good guys!

Wondering: How I’ll look when I go bald. It’s on my bucket list and it must be done this year.

Loving: The pictures I got in Tanzania. Blog post will be up in due time.

Hoping: I can shed my holiday fat fast because it’s summer. But I’m so lazy!

Marveling:  Creation. I think it’s all I ever marvel at. The stars, wildlife, how beautiful and perfect nature is.

Needing: I believe I’ve been blessed with all I need.

Smelling: Elizabeth Arden-Green Tea perfume somewhere in my room. So fresh.

Wearing: Pyjamas! I’ve been in jammies for the past 36 hours. 😀

Following: Zana Products and Creative Food Ideas on IG. You should check them out.

Zana is a Cape Town-based company that has the cutest creations and gift ideas.

Noticing: That my bad holiday eating is showing! Oh my. I thought cake was an essential macronutrient, apparently not.

Knowing: That I’m a geek, and owning it. I spend hours perfecting work/ assignments that sometimes mean so little. I realised that brain-teasers and puzzles thrill me! And random facts about countries, science, nature and sometimes useless things also really excite me. What?! 😀

Thinking: About whether to go to the Ultra Music Festival or the Cape Town International Jazz Festival, because I can’t afford both. 😦

Feeling: A little queasy. Light headed and getting short of breath easily. I think it’s exhaustion.

Bookmarking: I need to stop bookmarking internet pages and start bookmarking my Bible. I’ve kind of fallen behind with it.

Opening: My laptop to watch Scandal.

Giggling: At messages from our family Whatsapp group. Crazy bunch, those ones.

Sending out flares of love and light.

    1.Can’t wait to see you bald now that you said it “must” be done
    2.Anita Gaitho can hook you up with the skirt if you order in good time I believe.
    3.I am also trying to bookmark my Bible more, and I must say I am experiencing a peace I never knew existed.
    4.If you don’t like what you see when naked, no something about it already.Guilty too.

    Blessed rest of the week:)

        you inspire me. By the way I’m going back to my daily exercise regime. More for stress management than anything else. Keep seeing your pics and it slaps me a little to move
