Happy Monday everyone.
I don’t really know how to describe this week, to be honest. It’s been a week of just trying to get my footing underneath me, accepting where I am and adjusting to my transition home. I’ve been staying fairly patient knowing that I’m going to have to wait a chunk of time before I feel any sort of “routine,” or “schedule.” I haven’t let this stress me out, which is nice. Rather, I’m accepting that I don’t know how things will feel and can’t really plan what I could be doing at certain times. I know at some point soon I will have a better gage on… everything.
Externally the transition home has been wonderful – I came in to a wonderfully set up room, the most gorgeous (hot!) weather, a beautiful house with lots of nice space and extra time for my “me” things. Internally though – yeah, it’s been hard. A lot of contentious feelings toward my parents; a lot of communication not being met – thus causing internal toxic festering.
It’s only been a week, so of course I cannot expect everything to be feeling settled. I’m trying to catch myself from getting too ahead of myself – as I often do – with goals and plans. It has been clear already how important my bits of creativity are going to be. Now that I’m not in training and school mode, I do have a lot more opportunity for these things. My “to-do lists” and “accomplishments” will be vastly different than they were through the year. More music, more creativity, more leisure, more personal goals – which I hope to not see as “extras,” but as priorities.
I got done a number of these things this week – all of which helped lift my mood and made me feel great on the productive front. I’m joining the fabulous Meg, as always, to list out the nice little things I got done. Join me as I take a look back!
Though coming into “my room” with this new surprise on the wall made it all worth while
Not to mention the view from my window.
New work lunch. Fresh baked bread on site, free lattes, and a sunny window

Thank you, Emily!!

A lot of different things this week – but all very welcomed. Glitter, figuring out the angle of the sun, and simply enjoying the day are going to be higher up on the “must do” lists for a while now.Cake and glitter never fail to help transition you into a new setting.

Do you ever “de-healthify” a recipe?
Do you enjoy crafts?
Did your parents get rid of your room when you moved out?
Not a hugely exciting week. But I did get a few nice things…
