Taking Stock - September
Sometimes in life you just need to slow down, stop and take stock of what's going on in life.
It was a quiet day here at work today so while no one was looking I decided to reflect on my life.

Cooking : Just basic meals (meat and steamed vegies) but this week I'm going to make a dish I haven't cooked in ages Pumpkin and Rice Macaroni casserole.
Drinking : Good Ol H20
Reading: I'm a serial multiple book reader - "Allegiant" by Veronica Roth and "You'll get through this" by Max Lucado
Wanting: A new digital SLR camera as mine is broken (my birthday is coming up soon)
Looking: For purpose

Needing: A good nights sleep - no more nightmares please
Smelling: Toast cooking (from the office kitchen)
Wearing: Work clothes (flower patterned pants, dusty pink top and a light white cardigan)
Following: Inked In Colour's life project entitled "Nothing New"
Noticing: Peoples moods changing with the weather
Knowing: Every time I build a couch fort my husband will come and destroy it like an evil traitor

Admiring: Emma Watson and the amazing speech she gave at the HeforShe event

Snacking: I'm loving prosciutto this week
Coveting: I'd love to own a Macro lens but I need a new camera first
Helping: Convincing MJ to participate in Movember to help raise money for prostate cancer
Hearing: Mouse clicking and distance radio (work noises), I've also dragged out my Ipod for the car and listening to some good classics and one hit wonders
