Five Simple Things (January 22)


We are feeling a bit less of the stress from the nation as a whole now it seems. Thank god, right? Hopefully things will start to improve slowly with the new president in office now. I am just looking forward to seeing less crazy actions from people and more calm. Unfortunately, the pandemic hasn't really made things "go back to normal," but at least we are seeing a little light at the end of the tunnel. My heart monitor checkup is this coming week, so hopefully I get some answers there, too. I am anxious about finding out about my anxiety. Odd how that works. Overall, I am starting to remain calm and focus on myself more, and as Jeff puts it, telling everyone else "NO." Which, I have a hard time doing, but am working on it slowly. Overall, it's been a nice week, so I hope it lasts. Here are five things this week.

1. This Easel. 

We couldn't find a decently made, or decently priced easel online, or in stores, so we made our own. It's a roughly made easel, but it works great for our homeschool classroom. We are really enjoying it. You can see more about it here.

2. These Signs.

I love black and white road signs. And, I am really enjoying the street names on these streets in Monmouth, Oregon. 

3. This Kid.

I love his creativity.

4. These Lights.

I bought these fairy lights to liven up my room and to bring a bit of light in the evenings to boost my mood. I really like them so far.

5. This Game.

I love CLUE and this past Christmas I received the Downtown Abbey CLUE game. We've played it a few times already and I love it!

Did you catch the first quarter moon on January 20?

Our latest podcast episode is out, and you can check it out at the podcast link above on this blog.

Also, I got a yearly wrap up from Spotify of all the songs I jammed to over the 2020 year. It's interesting to see which songs I enjoyed most of the time over others. I plan on using this wrap up to organize my playlists better for the 2021 year.

Positive affirmations this week: 

Have a nice weekend.
