Making : Nigella’s Sweet & Salty Bars (from her Kitchen book) to take to the last Lincolnshire BBQ of the year, by request. It was devoured
Cooking : Apple cake
Drinking : Earl grey tea. I tried it with lemon and then went back to my usual black
Reading: A new book! I read the first chapter, then woke at 01:00 with the light still on. I *think* it’s a good’un
Trawling: Blogs. Still massively behind reading my faves after the no broadband debarcle
Wanting: Another bracing walk like yesterday’s, from Mablethorpe to Sutton on Sea
Looking: Tired, after the BBQ last night
Deciding: Lights off by 10:30pm tonight
Wishing: Summer hadn’t whizzed by in 5 mins this year. It’s September already?!
Enjoying: Snuggling in my Tilted Granny Squares blanket
Waiting: For Graham Norton and Have I Got News for You to come back on TV
Liking: Watching the leaves change colour
Wondering: Which shop to buy new jeans?
Loving: Autumn unfolding at Waterperry Gardens
Pondering: Unravelling a cowl I’ve never worn
Listening: To a ticking clock
Considering: Pausing to put the kettle on
Buying: Belly pork for dinner
Watching: Moana, the accents swing from sort of English to sort of Scottish to sort of Antipodean in places
Hoping: For a new cooker soon. With numbers on the dials!
Marvelling: At time speeding
Cringing: At my panda eyes and red cheeks (lunchtime wine and heating on.)
Needing: That tea!
Questioning: What’s for dinner this week? What shall I make at Sewing Club?
Smelling: My blanket
Wearing: My favourite red cardie
Noticing: The traffic is much quieter on Sundays
Knowing: It will feel more like home soon
Trouble-shooting: Needle sizes, cable lengths, how to edge a blanket
Thinking: Of writing a series of porridge related posts
Admiring: Union Jack boot toppers I saw on Thursday on wellies in the pub. Very clean ones! Paired with a body warmer and a Joules top…
Getting: Chatty with the wearer of this hoodie. She’s met the great lady
Bookmarking: A few blog posts for inspiration
Opening: A bag of porridge oats mwahaha
Closing: Doors to keep the heat in
Feeling: Lazy and warm
Dreaming: Of mice in hoodies, wearing sunglasses (really, I did)
Hearing: The zoom of a recliner
Celebrating: Unpacking all the boxes
Pretending: They’ve all been unpacked
Embracing: Soups, stewed apples and other cozy foods

If you want to write your own, here’s the list courtesy of the rather fab Pip. If you do, how about leaving a link in the comments below, so we can see what you’re up to as well?
