things that have been awesome ahoy

Well I was going to call this post โ€˜things that have been awesome about today,โ€™ but okay, auto-correct. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’š You keep life interesting!

I played Super Mario Brothers with Samuel this morning, which is awesome because Iโ€™ve been meaning to play new levels on there for weeks. We had fun!

I walked a mile with Samuel and it was definitely a workout, but we both enjoyed it. (Well I know I did haha)

I shared a fruit smoothie with Elizabeth and Samuel and almost Isabella – she hasnโ€™t quite learned how to drink from a straw yet, so she was just looking at the cup. ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ

The abdominal pain from yesterday and the evening before has stopped today! ๐ŸŽ‰ Iโ€™m very thankful because it was starting to creep me out haha

Samuel and I have been learning how to juggle bean bags (which I helped my mom make yesterday – she did all the sewing, and I poured the lentils lol). Itโ€™s been forever since I juggled but Iโ€™m still semi-decent at it! ๐Ÿคฃ

Idk what weโ€™re having for dinner. Something edible. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Oh whoops I just remembered Iโ€™m supposed to be making it! Veggie subs โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜†

I finished coloring a page in my jungle coloring book! I loooove how it turned out and Iโ€™m stoked to be learning about shading ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Iโ€™m getting back into photography which is awesome because I missed it haha

How am I feeling about the coronavirus? well, it depends on when you ask me. (Sure, Iโ€™m asking myself in this case, but Iโ€™m just as worthy of an answer ๐Ÿคช) right now, Iโ€™m fine to be home. I spend most of my time at home anyway! But it is strange to not have the choice to go out and do something fun. All the fun has to happen at home. ๐Ÿ˜† but it is interesting to me how all of the activities I do at home suddenly feel more important, or something. I really appreciate everything right now, honestly!

pick a niche & stick with it

Heyyy there! It is mid-afternoon on this bright, sunshine-y, pollen-filled Friday, and it feels amazing outside. I’ve been working on my favorite coloring book and I’m really happy with the progress I’m making on the page I’m currently on. ๐Ÿ™‚ It took me a very long time to get to the point in the book I’m at now lol, but I love having that hobby to do while spending more time at home.

I’ve been having abdominal pain on and off since yesterday evening, and it’s a bit concerning. It was dull yesterday and this morning, but by late morning and through the present moment, the pain is sharp and concentrated in one area just to the right of my belly button. *sighs* It is helping me to slow down and take it easy, which is good, but I’m disappointed because I had planned on exercising today. Now I don’t want to push it.

sustainable living: from necessity to reality

sustainable living: from necessity to reality

Hey there! Over the past nearly two weeks, I have been getting innovative and finding ways to reduce the normal amount of waste I create in an effort to make our stash of food and other disposable items (paper, cleaning products, etc) last as long as they possible can.

I’ve started doing these things recently out of necessity, but I… you know, could have already been doing for months. *shrugs*

a letter to my future self

a letter to my future self

Dear Future Me,

I realize now that the over-filtered typewriter gives the impression that I am writing expressly to my past self, considering the typewriter is the epitome of old fashioned written communication. Despite this, I’d rather write the body of the post than spend any more time scrolling through free stock photo websites.

Anyway. haha
