Just a minute in January

I'm finally back into the swing of things with this monthly meme. So, here's my January in a nutshell:


Sewing... scented birds and new zipper pouch designs.


Growing... jasmine and basil joined the team this month, after five years of nurturing the Bird of Paradise finally flowered and little mushrooms unexpectantly popped up in the tomato plant (no, not the edible variety).


Watching... Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Slumdog Millionaire with my new movie friend (and Twilight is on the cards tonight with the Book Club).

Organising... with 3 other lovely Qld Prefects, the first Brisbane Brown Owls meet!


Joining... BrisStyle, or maybe I joined in December? I know it was definitely after I went to the BrisStyle Christmas market which was fabulous! Go check out the BrisStyle blog and all the other lovely members' etsy stores.


Anticipating... the release of Pip's book. Alas, we will all have to wait till March (I think), but you can pre-order here.


Spending... more time with a smaller crowd of good friends. My new year's resolution was to spend more time with people who have time for me. It may sound a little harsh but it's working quite well, it's brought unexpected friends closer and means less disappointment when no effort is made.

Appreciating... the love of my life.

Just a minute is a meme created by Jenaveve and it's a great way to stop and reflect no matter how busy things get. Pop over to August Street to sign up.

I reckon you Bris-vegas girls are going to rock it out this year. Love the idea of making an effort with those that make an effor.

A great catch up on your month. So cool that you're involved in organising the Brown Owl Brisbane meet. I so hope I can join you all once I get back in a couple of months!

That book looks delightful! I got mushrooms in my tomato plants two years ago, and thought I had them taken care of but they came back again last summer. If you find a way to deal with them without hurting the plants, would you mind sharing what works?

Just lovely, Rebecca.

I'm so behind with this I expect I've been struck off!! Ooops...not to mention that award from you last week. So many things, so little time...

Jenaveve said...

A list of loveliness! I love your Appreciating comments - too true.

I had to laugh at 'fancypicnic' above - you have not been struck off (lol). Play anytime, no pressure, that's the fun of it.
