Hello hello and happy Friday.
I am so pleased to say that last weekend was a really, really good weekend. Of course, most every weekend is good, sometimes even really good, but It’s been a while since I’ve added that extra “really” into my weekend reflection. Maybe it was because it started off with pizza for breakfast? Interestingly, those good feels and propelled me through this week, with feelings of gratefulness I didn’t realize were missing.
Why was my weekend so good you ask? Because it was a “doer” weekend, where we did stuff and got things done and it almost felt like things were back to the regular—because we had nothing but time to “do” them.
Striking things off my to-do list is one of my greatest joys. But there are always at least 10 revolving tasks that never rise from the bottom. That is, until quarantine hit. Granted, it’s taken me two full months of wading through my daily to-dos to make time for striking out the ever-present bottom 10, but hitting for the fences I am. And yep, I’m scoring too.
Being home all of the time sucks. And even though our state says it’s okay to mostly get back to the regular, I’m taking it ultra slow, and taking advantage of the time I have on my hands to make good weekends really really good. Let’s keep being safe.
But enough about me, let’s dig into this week’s Friday Faves.
