Taking Stock – life at the moment

  • Wasting: the stalks of vegetables
  • Waiting: for summer
  • Liking: being at home
  • Wondering: when we will be able to travel abroad again?
  • Loving: longer days
  • Hoping: for a good, hot summer
  • Marvelling: at how our cat manages to make so many friends
  • Needing: time to spend in the garden
  • Smelling: mint
