Taking Stock – 17

Talk about a hiatus! It’s been what, two months now? I’m sorry y’all, I really am. I have so much to talk about (read write about) but the time to do it though?? So I recently moved back home to Kenya from London about 1.5 months ago and the whole adjusting and get right into work thing took over my life for a while hence my silence on here.

End of summer vibes people! How are you doing? Hope well and taking in the very last rays of the sun before fall descends upon us here in Europe in a few weeks. To those back home in Kenya I’m sure you’re just counting down the days to the end of the cold season there, and I’ll be home soon too so guess I get a double summer this year, whoop! Anyway, that aside, let’s see what the past month has been like…

Are all of you as sad as I am to see May come to an end? This has been quite a fun-filled month for me and now that I’m knee-deep into my dissertation, no more fun for a good one and a half months till I complete this project… Sigh. Almost there, I can see the light at the end of this academic tunnel.

It’s been more than a minute folks and I apologize for the silence. School had me super caught up and I had no time to even read for pleasure leave alone blog. BUT… Finally on Easter break and catching up with everything I have missed out on in the past two months or so. Let’s take some stock shall we?:)

Taking Stock – 12

January, as much as it’s my birthday month, simply refuses to end. Possibly the longest month of the year hands down but it hasn’t been as torturing to me this time as it usually is. Probably that’s because I’m not working so I’m not feeling the pinch of no money till the weekend haha. No offense to those of you who are. Well it’s just a good three days and the month will finally be over folks, stay patient and let’s take some stock shall we.

Taking Stock – Seven

Making: A weird amount of gift bags… way behind on my gift giving these past few months, just playing catch up with all these birthdays that have passed and those coming up!

Cooking: Also a weird amount of cupcakes haha. Started selling these yummy babies and I seem to be baking every other weekend now.

Drinking: Green tea:)

Reading: All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Check out my Spring reading list below!

Wanting: Well my prayers were answered and I got my Iphone 6! So yeah, that is what I really wanted. I don’t really want much right about now…

Looking: For my next travel plan, that wanderlust bug is itching real hard

Playing: Solitaire

Wasting: A lot of time watching Pretty Little Liars. Like I gave this show so much of my patience and even in this finale we STILL don’t know who A is, damn!

Sewing Creating: Nothing in particular

Wishing: Growing up didn’t have to be so damn hard sometimes, but alas it is the only way to do it.

Enjoying: The alone time I have forced myself to take of late, solitude is really good for the soul.

Waiting: For the week to end. Yeah I know it’s Monday but this is a short week and lord knows I need that Easter Break coming up!

Liking: The risks I am taking. Never been a risk taker before – first time for everything!

Wondering: Why I seem to have the most icy fingers on the planet. As in seriously.. I have the coldest hands and I have no idea why

Loving: That I have stuck to my diet for more than 21 days, woop woop! My friends @Sab_G and @a_wanjirum are my accountability partners on this lol, thanks for the motivation guys!

Hoping: That despite the rainy season creeping up, that I don’t give up on my running, been consistent with that too, believe it or not. Like @nassstro1 always says – Health is Wealth.

Marvelling: At the Rolls Royce convertible I saw last Friday, that car is utter luxury on wheels. Not my style at all, but still good to look at.

Needing: A manicure. Easter Break come soon please.

Smelling: The freshly printed Yummy Magazine sitting right next to me. I like the smell of new books, magazines etc. Weird right?

Wearing: Leggings! Haven’t been able to wear anything this body hugging since October last year? For once I am fully pro cold weather now because that summer really tried it with all that heat.

Following: @shaym! My new obsession because she is a wanderlust addict just like me, her instagram feed gives me so much life.

Noticing: How quickly people change.

Knowing: That all will be well. I will still keep telling myself that.

Thinking: About mother dearest who is away on a work retreat. I have been her unofficial nurse for over a month now and for her to travel without anyone coming along to help her out is really frightening me but she’s gotten stronger over her recovery period, so I know she will be fine. I can’t help but worry sometimes though.

Feeling: Bitter Sweet.

Bookmarking: @CarolineMutoko’s YouTube page. Her videos are so very insightful!

Opening: My water bottle… Still can’t get 1 litre down, sigh.

Giggling: At my brother @tom_odero. He is a lot to handle in one tall skinny package lol.
