Hobonichi Weeks – Week 14 of 2020

Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend? We had a great one here in New Hampshire. We spent huge chunks of time outside on Saturday and Sunday – nearly 10 hours total. I don’t think I’ve ever done that in my whole life! But we’re feeling so cooped up lately that it was nice to be outside and free. We got a lot of gardening done, which I can’t wait to share with you later this week.

Despite our lives being so different, I was able to get relatively back to normal last week. I’m still trying to not be too hard on myself when it comes to housework. I know I’m going to need to figure something out because we’re in this for the long haul, but so far I’ve been able to laugh off the messes and just keep going. I don’t know how long that can continue!

I haven’t read since Wednesday! I have no desire to. I have a beautiful stack of books waiting for me, but the thought of sitting still to read seems crazy. I know this feeling will pass so I’m just keeping calm and carrying on. I’m filling my evening time with knitting and sewing, which is a nice substitution.

The other habit that’s been suffering is my morning journaling. The last entry in my journal was March 14 – before I got sick and before schools were closed. That’s three solid weeks without an important part of my morning routine. I stopped because I wasn’t waking up early enough when I was sick to continue the practice, and last week I focused on writing for my blog and returning important emails during my morning writing time. But today (Monday), I did manage to writing in my journal, so I’m hoping to get back into that routine!

Week 15 is ready to go and week 4 of remote learning is about to start! We are 15 weeks into 2020. It feels like we were all just scurrying to write our end-of-year blog posts and knee deep in the holiday season. Yet so much has happened! There’s been a complete shift in nearly everyone’s lives – nothing looks like it did a year ago. I hope you’re all able to find tiny nuggets of positivity throughout your day. Now is the time to hold on to them and find joy wherever we can!

  1. I was struggling mightily to read as well, but I think I turned the corner last week. And that makes me so happy! (and I have fallen off the journaling wagon as well, here is hoping we each find the path back this week!)

    1. I hear you – I feel so lucky that have a space, however small, to run and play. I can’t imagine being literally cooped up all of the time!

      The birds have been amazing this year – they bring an awareness of nature that’s hard to describe!
