HAPPY NEW YEAR!
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! 🙂
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.
