Verb prompts

I’ve been wanting to post for so long, but either lack of time or lack of photographed knitting kept me from it. I decided to “break the seal” with this verb prompting post I have seen on other blogs. More knitting to come soon!
Making: I have several WIPS – crochet embellishments needed for a baby dress, a cabled hat I lost my place in the pattern with, and a new accessories pattern book just landed on my door step. So many fun things to do, so little time spent doing them. 🙂
Cooking : Grilled veggies. Actually Chris is cooking them, but I am really enjoying them. 🙂
Drinking : Kombucha! Ginger and grape.  I love that stuff so much.
Reading: Shantaram by Gregroy David Roberts. It’s great to read a book paced for the long haul. I’m in the last few pages. Join me on GoodReads!
Wanting: A make-up brush of exceptional price and dubious performance, but none the less, I wants it.
Playing: I need a new game. I play Tetris on my phone every night on the train.
Wasting: Hours on Youtube. Too much time really. I have made a decisive effort to step away from all my technology gadgets.
Wishing: There were more hours in a day, days in a week, and weeks in a year. Trite but true.
Enjoying: Our backyard, and the fun time with friends this summer.
Waiting: For the labour day long weekend so I can be camping my with Connie-girl and baby Violet.
Liking: The summer weather! It’s usually rainy in Vancouver. It’s like a real summer out there.
Wondering:  What the next home repair should be. But then, the floors for downstairs aren’t even installed yet.
Loving:  My new potted plants in the yard. I love me some succulents.
Hoping: I get a surgery appointment sooner rather than later.
Marvelling:  At how quickly kids grow. Can you just slow down a bit already? Sheesh. Aunty Violet can barely get the sweaters out.
Needing: Some yoga. I feel like I am made of lumber lately.
Smelling:  I usually avoid fragrances, but lately I have dabbled a little (although guiltily): Elizabeth and James Nirvana White is what I’m wearing.
Wearing: Jeans, as per usual
Knowing:  It’s true what they say about age and doubt.
Thinking: Mostly the running lists of things that need to be done both for work and at home.
Opening: Outlander by Diana Gibaldan for a second read before the series debuts. I am really excited, and a bit nervous. I hope they do a good job with it.
Giggling: Usually at Chris.
Feeling: A bit tired honestly. The heat is keeping me up late, and my stiff muscles wake me up early.
