|We insulated and put up walls in the entire garage over the course of the weekend, now he can build shelves and start consolidating his tools in an organized fashion (and I can finally have my guest bedroom back!).|
|I bought a summer bed set (the heavy quilt we use for winter would smother us in the summer) and have started planning out lamps and wall hangings and curtains. I'm actually so bored I ordered some stuff to DIY some mason jar lamps so we'll see how that works out for me, haha.|
After my existential crisis a few posts back about how poorly I was doing at balancing WFH, things have improved immensely. I'm setting reminders to take walks on my breaks and also eating outside on the porch to enjoy the sunshine, and I'm remembering to log out at quitting time about 90% of the time -- and minimizing the amount of times I check my email "off the clock". I'm spending a lot more time with the horses and dogs, and they all seem more content. Doing yoga every day and maintaining a high step count (even if I lack the stairs to climb that I had at work, lol) is keeping my body a lot more comfortable. DH and I are having more relaxing dinners (rather than the frantic "oh God we better eat something because it's 8 p.m. and we need to do chores"). We've been very mindful of minimizing food waste, and I've been doing some baking (because why go to the store for a loaf of bread if I have yeast and flour here?). Life seems to be moving a bit slower and more simply, and frankly after the hustle and bustle of the last year+, that's fine by me.
|She perpetually reminds me to stop and smell the roses. Mostly because once she's outside I can't get her to stop sniffing the grass and come back inside, lol.|
|Good reminders to enjoy "me" time as well.|
|Break for humor, because nobody likes text walls.|
|My favorite view, even if my windows need to be cleaned.|
|We've been planting grass seed and gradually starting the process of trying to landscape.|
