Reading lots of romance novels, nothing worthy, nothing memorable … just sweet dilly dallying on the couch in front of the fire.
Chatting craft and blogs and books with friends, and crocheting again, and baking some brownies (which turned out not as a good as usual).
Enjoying watching the rain, and watching the ducks enjoying the rain and being inside while it rains outside.
Having afternoon tea at our favourite cafe with my sweet kids. Hot chocolates with white marshmallows (no pink ones) and a coffee for me and some potato wedges with sweet chilli sauce.
Finding myself annoyed at my preteen daughter who is in the throes of hormonal upheaval and then reminding myself to be understanding and patient and loving and then realising that I am also a hormonal mess and I should avoid confrontation and arguments when this mood is in the house. Explaining to my 10 year old son that he is likely to have an extremely annoying sister for a few more years yet and then she might turn out to be his friend.
Using up the pantry stores rather than going grocery shopping.
Going for some lovely neighbourhood walks and taking photos along the way. Being observant.
Thinking about what is for dinner tonight – Friday night – something yummy. Maybe a hearty curry vegetable soup followed by chocolate cake, or perhaps roast chicken and roast vegetables with apple pie and cream, or a big bowl of chilli con carne and custard tart.
Finishing up the latest Action Pack Magazine (sneak peek pic above).
Planning what to do on a rainy weekend this weekend, thinking about more trashy novels and more crochet while curled up in front of the fire … and having another crack at those brownies.
