I'm still catching up after my holiday, so I'm kind of a week behind on everything! But this is what I've been up to...
Listening... to Raindrops by Basement Jaxx. It's currently at the top of my 'most listened to' list.
Travelling...to Tassie. After The Engagement, I stayed on in Launceston for 7 days of karate training, while Gib went back home for work. It was great (the training that is, not Gib having to go back to work). Usually training twice a day. Being on holidays, and with a training regime like that meant I slipped into my natural rhythm of waking up early (training), having a nap in the afternoon, (more training) then going to bed late. I'd love to live in a country where they have siestas. I felt so refreshed and energised.
Organising... an engagement party. Christmas presents. The family Kris Kringle. Posting stuff. It's all go go go.
Re-organising... our living quaters. We've swapped our study and bedroom around. I now have an entire wardrobe to myself in the bedroom (which I can keep clean without all that boy mess) and Gib has another one all to himself in the study next door (where he can throw his clothes in, and if he loses his socks and undies, then it's not my problem)
Reading... Gourmet Traveller. 'The Waterbug Book'. Mostly non-fiction.
Preparing... for my first grading at the new karate dojo I'm now at. I'm a little nervous, not quite sure what I'm in for!
Cooking... some interesting dishes. New flavours from parts of the world I haven't tried before. Just generally having fun in the kitchen. I'm itching to do some baking, but haven't found the time in the past few weeks.
Loving... cherries, peaches, plums, nectarines... all of those delicious stone fruit that summer brings! They are my favourite fruit.
Writing... engagement party invites. Christmas cards. Christmas letters to friends overseas.
Sewing... little shoes for my friends new baby boy, an adorable star shaped bunting, some bibs... all sorts of other baby-related things. He's completely adorable. So tiny. This is my first friend from my age group to have a baby... I'm now officially in the whole 'engagements, weddings and babies' phase with my friends. I think it's time for my Christmas sewing to start too... perhaps I've left my run a bit late!
Growing... tomatoes. Lots of them. Too many in the one pot. I didn't quite expect them all to grow!
Hope you had a lovely November too! Check out what everyone else did last month over at August Street.
