This and That
Good morning! I hope you all of you have had a fine week. This is the first week where we are not unpacking boxes. Believe me there are still boxes here and there but we have lost some motivation. I started up with my exercise program after a few months off and it felt good to get back into the groove. I'm surprised at how little muscle was lost, not that I have a lot of muscle. Sadly the morning walks will be ending due to hot humid weather creeping back in.
I'm ready for fall but I cannot let myself go there!
I compiled all documenting into the above Hobonichi Weeks planner and I've been happy with the simplification so far. Besides keeping track of appointments, I'm marking down the menu plan and exercising sessions. I have a whole page for a sentence a day gratitude list (I love doing that).
I do have an art journal that I write in a few times a week.
The knitting is coming along - I try to sit and rest in the afternoons and put in some much needed rows. I've been thinking of Christmas knitting and what should I make and who should I knit for this season.
My studio continues to be a huge mess. I've created a memory box/bin for each child and just need to move those two bins out of my room. I've started with miscellaneous photos, putting them into existing albums and sorting very old photos of relatives that are no longer with us and placing them in new binders. For those old precious photos, I've been using removable tombow ribbon adhesive which is quite handy. I amazed myself by actually finding it - it's a slippery slope in locating items.
My husband by far is much much better and labeling boxes and finding the stuff he packed. Me on the other hand wrote vague scant descriptions and I questioned what it all meant. The only boxes that were well labeled that I packed said 'open me first' or 'pick me' (I appreciated my past self for that).
The only way the missing candle remote that I packed 'somewhere safe' will show up is when I buy all new candles with a new remote. I am seriously considering this.
