Greetings, friends! On Mondays I take a few moments to reflect back on the week that just ended. I track my days in my Hobonichi Weeks. The weekly format is perfect for leaving the previous week behind – well documented, of course – and starting fresh each Monday morning.
In my Weeks, I track my daily/weekly tasks, habits, and writing time. I also try to spend a few minutes each evening writing a few sentences about the day (but sometimes end up doing this the next morning). This format has been serving me well in 2020 and I’m pleased to have found something that has stuck!
Last week was gorgeous. The weather was perfect for spending hours and hours outside every day, which we took full advantage of. Soon enough I’m going to dread going outside in the summer sun so we’re stretching out spring as long as we can! I didn’t do a lot of “extra” household chores that I wanted to get done, but I did most of the basics so I’ll count the week as a success!
My step streak has continued – 46 days of 10,000 steps or more. This is just amazing to me, considering that I used to struggle to get even 5000 steps in a single day when I had a desk job. Most exciting is that my journaling streak has continued – this morning was my 50th straight day of writing in my journal each morning. Friends, I have another life goal: Honoré at Morning Glory Studio recently shared that she’s on a 7300 day journaling streak. Dare I even try?! YES!!!!
I didn’t do any knitting over the weekend like I’d hoped. I think I’m a bit disillusioned with my Birkin sweater – it’s clearly not going to fit me well so all of the excitement has drained out of me. I think it will end up being my early morning chicken chores sweater, which is fine. And it’s not like I leave the house very often even when the world isn’t locked down, so I can still wear a lumpy and strangely shaped sweater without worrying about odd looks from others. I’m going to try to finish it up this week so I’m ready for the TTL MKAL on the first. I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.
I plan to be back tomorrow to share my progress on my Word of the Year! Stay safe until then!
