blogtober

  Oh October, what a month you were! I ended up missing a week or so of my blog-every-day goal, after my computer died and mucked up my rhythm and my to-do list. BUT it was fun, nonetheless. It was lovely to be back in this space like the good old days. It’s given me momentum to keep up with twice weekly postings, and I

Ah, what a week. We’ve been on school break and it was an absolute delight! Ten things from this week: Reading- The Last Time They Met, but I’m struggling to get a rhythm with it Watching- the kids play with our new puppy Listening to- The Secret Daughter seasonnone soundtrack (and wishlisting season two) Creating- an attitude of gratitude with a few of the thankfulness

As part of my continued effort in revamping my morning routine, I have started writing “morning pages” as a brain dump and a way to get my head in the game. And then I started a 30 day slow childhood challenge that had journaling prompts, so that required another notebook. With my basket suddenly¬† filling up with notebooks, I decided a storage solution was in

The joy of school break is that I suddenly have all this “free” time that is usually consumed by school. By free time, of course, I mean snatches of 30 seconds where someone isn’t hungry or arguing over bike ownership or losing a Lego piece that is integral to their ongoing survival, so not really free in the way of being master of my own

…bible journaling – current favourites…

I’ve been trying to get back into the habit of regular bible journaling, with the help of my new morning basket. I’ve been slack this week, however, because on Sunday I took my journaling bible to church to take part in a series of interviews with various members of the congregation on how we read our bible, as part of our celebration of both Reformation

December Daily, the theory goes, is an every day memory keeping project, each day in December. As good as the theory is, I have both 2015 AND 2016 sitting in my “to finish” pile – whoops!! Once I finished my selfie minibook, I started working on my 2016 December Daily as part of my 31 minutes project. I am verging in on getting it finished,

How is it Sunday again? Ten things from my week: -reading :: The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton was a finish this week, and I started The Time Travellers Wife for the 7000th time -listening to :: alternating between acapella pop covers on YouTube, and our burgeoning collection of classical music (we study one composer a week and end up getting our favourites on iTunes)

…quilt camp projects & wrap up…

Oh man, what a weekend! Quilt camp is always a bundle of fun, and this year was no exception. As always, I massively overpacked, and despite my good intentions, didn’t get as much done as I’d hoped for a variety of reasons, but I still managed to get a bit of crafting done, in among all the chatter and coffee breaks and walks up to

What a week!! I know my posts have fallen off a bit – a couple I had scheduled didn’t actually post, and a few more I had planned needed to be deferred because I had stuff I needed for them on my computer…which decided this week to pack it in!! I am committed to completing Blogtober though, so will post twice a few days this

At the beginning of the year, I set myself a challenge to read 52 books this year. One a week. As of today, my tally on Goodreads stands at 25. One of those I’ve read twice, so 26. Halfway through the list, with only 1/4 of the year left to go. What Goodreads doesn’t count is my guilty treat…fanfiction. Add that in, and I’d be
