As the final full week of 2020 begins, I’m looking back at the week that just ended. I like taking this time to see how I’m using my time and how it aligns with my goals and values. Keeping this notebook has been a great practice for me because, as I check in with my notebook every few hours to document what I’ve been doing, I’m reminded how quickly time passes. It keeps me focused on how I want to use my time.
Today’s entry is not as detailed as I’ve been lately. I think many of us are probably overloaded during the holiday season and I hope you understand that my blogging time this morning will have to be a bit shorter than usual.
First things first: my journal entry this morning was day 260 of my streak (writing time is highlighted in green). I’m probably much more shocked about that than you are, so I won’t spend a lot of time boring you with all of that.
I spent a lot of time reading early in the week (highlighted in pink), which was delightful. I’ve also spent a lot of time listening to audiobooks (highlighted in orange) thanks to finishing up two fairly long audios and starting another long one yesterday. I used to feel overwhelmed by long audiobooks and now I welcome them – it’s almost like settling down with good friends and allowing myself to get totally swept away by the story.
I spent a lot of time stitching last week (yellow = stitching; a lot of the orange highlights also include stitching time, given that it’s possible to multitask). I picked up my hexies quilt again and spent evenings with my newest project, Scrappy Swoon. I can’t wait to show you my progress on Wednesday.
That’s all from me this morning. I’m planning to be back on Wednesday with my reading and stitching updates. If you’ve recently written a post about your own notebooks, please leave a comment with the link. I love the inspiration and encouragement. Cheers!
