Around here, we know that summer, as in the sunny days kind of summer, starts after July 4. It’s been a bit of a slog this week, lots of grey and drizzle, but summer is coming. I know I will be spending more time on the deck and in the garden.
Thinking about – getting reacquainted with my notebook. I have been using standard sized inserts for the last six months although I have not written consistently like Katie. This week, I discovered a lovely log and YouTube feed – Keep Good Notes. Watching her videos and reading her posts have helped me start again with daily journaling. I am also inspired by Honoré. I love the way she makes journaling and paper and regular part of her routine.
Grateful for – time spent with my grandson. Yesterday he taught me how to draw a shell. It was a lovely time.
Interested in – learning more about self-care. This morning I was making a list of all the ways I give my time away. I recently read Sarah Bessey’s book, Miracles and Other Reasonable Things. One thing that I took away from this book is to pay attention to the difference between self-care and self-comfort. Journaling is self-care, something I want to make a part of my daily routines and rhythms.
Fun ahead – Today would have been dad’s 91st birthday. I will head to the store for some gluten free cupcakes and then join family for a virtual birthday celebration this evening.
Enjoy your Friday!
