I have had the best mental health four-day weekend. Checked a lot off of the to-do list, knocked out a lot of my 40 Bags in 40 Days bags (including today getting a dresser, desk and desk chair out of my basement!), and got in a fair amount of friend time. I didn't get as much done as I had planned but was happy to be able to support friends who needed me.
Last Week I:
Listened To: I started listening to Tana French's The Trespasser and I'm really enjoying listening to a book read with an Irish accent!
Watched: A whole lot of college basketball between the NCAA and NIT tournaments.
Read: Here's another thing I thought I'd find more time for the past four days. I am enjoying Before The Fall which I'll finish this week.
Made: Things have been super casual in the kitchen this week - chicken salad sandwiches, nachos, chili dogs - and we've been out to eat more than usual.
Enjoyed: Book club, time with friends, time with my parents and time to myself. And finding homes for these spindles my mom passed on to me from her collection, a sterling silver bowl I found at the Goodwill, and a vintage pastoral print I found on Facebook Marketplace. Yes, yes, I know it sort of defeats the purpose of 40 Bags if I keep getting new things but a girl needs a refresh once in a while!
This Week I’m:
Planning: We've got nothing on the calendar so I'm planning on getting through the rest of my upstairs rooms for 40 Bags. Then it's time to tackle the basement. Ugh. But after getting some furniture out of there, it already looks so much better so that will help with my mood as I work through that.
Thinking About: Spring planting and some changes I want to make in our yard this spring.
Feeling: Happy to have been able to help friends today. It's always good to be able to put smiles on people's faces.
Looking forward to: Right now, I'm tired physically and mentally. Sundays are clean sheets day so I'm looking forward to crawling into bed sooner rather than later.
Question of the week: Are you a March Madness fan?
