Last year's eggs because thou shall not
waste any eggs this Quarantineaster.
Also, who else is going to eat a dozen deviled eggs,
even if it's by yourself on the couch?
Meeeeee!

Moments Of Calm

Truly grateful my husband is home with me today and tomorrow. A slight reprieve, a respite together.
 
He is considered essential and has been working so much lately out in the midst of the public, we haven’t had much time together, more than a day or few hours in the evening here and there at all in the last several weeks, leaving him exhausted. My anxiety is through the roof lately worrying about him and everything else.
I’ve stopped reading the news every five minutes and tried to breathe from social media because it only fuels my fear. Instead, I have been checking in on friends, lots of prayer, taking long walks after work, and reordering my days to flow as normally as possible...
I’ve stopped reading the news every five minutes and tried to breathe from social media because it only fuels my fear. Instead, I have been checking in on friends, lots of prayer, taking long walks after work, and reordering my days to flow as normally as possible in spite of my own work ramping up. Also finding some calm in our pre-pandemic weekend routine of coffee, Netflix, Instagram memes and never leaving the house.

I hope you all are staying safe, healthy, and resting in moments of calm.

Little Things

What little things are making you happy right now? Mine include: all things green and growing, hugs from my kids, sunshine, fresh eggs, puppy kisses, and clean spaces. Admittedly, we’ve been struggling with that last one.
What little things are making you happy right now? Mine include: all things green and growing, hugs from my kids, sunshine, fresh eggs, puppy kisses, and clean spaces. Admittedly, we’ve been struggling with that last one. The kids are ripping through each room like tiny tornadoes. The mess and the dishes feel never-ending. But, my goals are to decorate and organize some small spots to make me smile - like this tidy, rustic spring tray - and do a deep clean of other areas on my long, spring farmhouse to-do list.

Proactive Vs. Reactive

I’ve been a little quiet over here because I’m still processing and trying to get my bearings. Opening up this app feels like information overload right now - and that’s not to say what’s being posted isn’t helpful or creative or uplifting or worth reading - I just haven’t felt ready to take part.
You know, not allowing conditions or circumstances to dictate my response but instead taking the time to pause and then choose how I want to respond to the conditions and circumstances.
I’ve been thinking a lot about being proactive vs. reactive. You know, not allowing conditions or circumstances to dictate my response but instead taking the time to pause and then choose how I want to respond to the conditions and circumstances. So I’m here, sitting in that pause, considering how we might make it through the next little while.

Hope you’re all taking care, making smart choices, and looking for the good. In this together, just not together.

Staying Positive

We checked in with our neighbors to see if they needed anything and they've checked on us as well. It's the little, simple things that go a long way and which help us stay positive and support our community.
Spending time at home is ideal for house projects and decluttering! We've been spending our day cleaning and finishing up the priming of our livingroom. We checked in with our neighbors to see if they needed anything and they've checked on us as well.
