For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

taking stock: September

Mr and Mrs P celebrate a new Mr and Mrs P!

Hello folks. I'm joining in with Pip's Taking Stock thingamajig. It's a lovely way to pause, be thankful and catch up with yourself a little bit. Wanna take stock, too? Visit Pip's blog and copy her original list from there. Leave a comment below if you do one, I'd love to be nosy and have a read!

(Psst! There's still time to enter the GIVEAWAY and win a copy of Faux Taxidermy Knits).   

Making: Christmas presents. It's started already, people!

Cooking: veggie curry with far too much rice.

Drinking: a cup of tea someone else has made for you is one of life's sweetest blessings. 
Reading: Accordion Crimes by Annie Proux. Recommend!
Wanting: to book our holiday before we actually go on it. 
Looking: out for signs of Autumn. Bring it, crunchy leaves. 
Playing: the ukulele badly. Sorry neighbours. 
Deciding: whether or not to take the plunge and leave our flat sooner. 
Wishing: it was simpler to move house.
Enjoying: a spruced up, waistcoat clad Mr P relishing his new, non-pizza-related job. 
Waiting: for the big office move. 
Liking: listening to Joanna Newsom again and feeling about 17 and like anything is possible. 
Wondering: where the summer went. 
Loving: weddings and knit nights.
Pondering: the likelihood of falling in love with running.
Considering: a trip to the library for some holiday reading. Any recommendations?
Watching: Community, Pushing Daisies and Great British Bake Off. 
Hoping: I can take my knitting needles on the plane. 
Marvelling: at the fact that we've almost been married a whole flipping year already. What?!
Needing: to give more time to prayer.
Smelling: tomato soup. 
Wearing: fingerless mitts - the time has come.
Following: Jordan Burt on Vine. Pretty sure Debbie is my spirit animal. 
Noticing: what a blessing a fluffy pair of slippers can be at the end of a long day. 
Knowing: it is not sensible to eat nectarines at your desk. Juice on chin, juice in keyboard, ugh.
Thinking: about precious friends who should be closer. 
Admiring: skilled ladies that can do maiden braids - mine come out lumpy!
Sorting: superhero socks and yarn. 
Buying: groceries and second-hand books.
Getting: nowhere near enough sleep.
Bookmarking: more wonderful, creative blogs than I have time to read.
Disliking: 6am starts. Boo.
Opening: wedding invitations and save-the-dates. When did we grow up?
Giggling: at least once a day. 
Feeling: like I need to try harder and be better.
Snacking: on cashews - my desk snack of the moment.
Coveting: new earphones. And a hula hoop, please. 
Wishing: I could play the harp. 
Helping: myself to a second slice of everything. 
Hearing: when it's stress o'clock.
