How are you doing? This week went by pretty quickly and it’s hard to believe it’s already Friday.
-Putting on a real outfit, doing my hair and makeup – I did this 1.5 times. I put on a spring outfit Monday and then on Wednesday I was dressed from the waist up for a faculty meeting on Zoom!
-Dropping what I am doing and going outside when the sun comes out – this is a rule I have made for myself. That Vitamin D really helps!
-Asking how I can serve the people in my house – making favorite foods usually!
-Limiting the news I watch – I watch our governor nightly at 5 but I need to try to limit my morning news.
-Limiting my time on social media -while I enjoy connecting it is also a place of a lot of grim information and sometimes it’s too much. I have reconnected with some former colleagues and some former students lately and that has been so nice.
-Doing something creative – blogging, taking photos, or cooking are my creative outlets.
-Real phone calls – I have enjoyed actually talking and not texting!
-Gratitude – I have to remember to be thankful for what I can do and not dwell on what I can’t do right now.
-I put on some self tanner just for fun.
Here is a dinner from this week – mini penne with turkey sausage and cream sauce.
This quote hit me.
Curbside pick up at bookstores – We ordered from our local bookstore and from Barnes and Noble because they had what my son wanted. I am allowing this splurge right now because our library is closed and I want to support the local bookstore. Our local hardware store also has curbside pick up. The businesses have gotten creative.
Tonight we are getting German food! We are looking forward to this!
My nails are a mess! The dip did a number on my nails so it was really time for a break. They keep breaking off. This is a good time to work on strengthening them.
Our first mowing of the season. Hub hates mowing but he did it after work one day.
A candle, a bourbon, and a new magazine yesterday afternoon.
Walking in the neightborhood.
What helped you this week?
All we are being asked to do is stay home so this is nothing like what many are doing. Thank you to the healthcare workers, the truck drivers delivering supplies, the grocery store employees, and so many more for what you are doing!
