I’ve been such a bad blogger so I thought I’d just recap what’s been filling my downtime lately. Some comforting old favorite hobbies, books and shows have been resurrected this last year.
READING. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Book 5). It seemed like a good idea to re-read the HP series and it’s still amazing. ❤
WATCHING. Buffy the Vampire Slayer; entire season. For the third time. I re-started the series when Hannah was tiny and I was up all night with her. It got me through. And Being Human (US Version); another legit good vampire-werewolf-ghost show on Netflix. My expectations were low, but it’s actually really great.
DOING. Scrapbooking Hannah’s first year. I am LOVING Project Life! I never thought I would catch up so quickly with an entire year, but the pocket-style scrapbooks have made it doable, and they look great.
And journaling. I haven’t kept in journal in years but I’m back to making some effort to write once a week or so. I get up early to do it and enjoy my coffee and just write about whatever is on my mind at the moment.
DRINKING. My coffee black, like a grownup.
WEARING. Fall or spring-like ensembles during this freakishly warm Utah winter. Flowy, layery styles and a limited wardrobe of what fits me since I haven’t lost much of the pregnancy weight. LUSH lipstick in STRONG.
LEARNING. About Ayurvedic healing. I need to post on some of this because it’s really fascinating. This is my favorite blog on the subject.
- A more scheduled daily routine. For my sanity and Hannah’s. This work-from-home mom stuff is no joke! I feel like I’m spinning my wheels constantly. On the agenda is a dedicated day at the office each week, and some scheduled fitness/sanity each week.
- My spring garden (I ordered my seeds from Seed Saver’s Exchange today!)
- Our basement finishing project (JB’s doing all the work – I just get to make the fun decisions). More about this later.
What is everyone else into these days?
