What a lovely weekend! We had a lot of outside time on Saturday – time in the garden and just sitting on our front step soaking up the sunshine. We needed it – it had been so cold over the last few weeks so it was nice to be outside without coats. Today it’s raining, but it doesn’t look like the forecasted snow is going to happen!
I mentioned in Friday’s post that I’ve been tired, so I tried to honor that feeling this weekend by letting myself sleep in. I’m not sure if it helped because I get super grumpy if I don’t get time to myself before the kids get up! By choosing to sleep in I also chose not to spend any time working on blog posts which makes me a bit nervous. But that’s okay – sleep is good. I still managed to finish my third full week of morning pages, which is an exciting streak! And I did a bit more reading than the last couple of weeks.
Every week I have a good laugh at my inconsistency – some weeks I mop 4-5 times, other weeks I don’t mop at all. I’m constantly trying to find that delicate balance that changes on me based on so many variables. I never know what to expect and that’s usually a good thing! Keeps things spicy.
Last week was much better for me emotionally. I surrendered to the craziness of it all and reminded myself that this is unprecedented. I don’t have to be perfect. It’s okay for the house to be messy, it’s okay for us not to finish all of Bear’s assigned school work, it’s okay to have to dig through laundry baskets to root out our clean clothes every day. This is how it is right now and I’m lucky. So thanks to you all for your kind words!
I don’t have this week’s spread set up yet, but you can probably imagine what it’s going to look like.
Here’s to the 18th week of the year! I wish you all a calm, happy, and healthy one.
