Sunday Synopsis

Last week I took a bit of a slow week. I got a few errands and chores done, got most of the things we need for this week’s Thanksgiving dinner, but otherwise I spent my time reading and resting and preparing for the week coming up. I haven’t had a traditional Thanksgiving in a while, … More Sunday Synopsis

Last week, I only finished one book, and it was a children’s book. My reading momentum has definitely slowed down recently, but my TBR has only gotten longer, of course. I’m trying to push through it and keep picking up books I’m excited about to get that momentum rolling again. I also got far too … More Sunday Synopsis

I don’t typically do anything for Halloween, but one of the farms near my hometown has a few extremely popular activities for this time of year and we decided to see what all the fuss is about. We did one of the activities that was a mix of corn maze, haunted house, and haunted hike. … More Sunday Synopsis

With the leaves in full color and the weather surprisingly warm last week, I did a little exploring and walking around a few areas along the river. It was beautiful, and I apparently did it just in time because we lost a lot of leaves to the wind the following day. I pressed a rose … More Sunday Synopsis

Last week, I went apple picking for the first time in two years. We got apples, pears, apple cider, and cider donuts – everyone’s favorite. We also learned that the orchard we always go to is even bigger than we thought. There’s a whole new area that we didn’t even realize was part of the … More Sunday Synopsis

It’s officially October and the fall festivities have begun. Last week I painted a hallway, because all I do these days is paint walls. And I found an egg farm nearby where you can see all the chickens hanging out outside. So many chickens! Big fan. I also finished reading four books. Last Week I … More Sunday Synopsis

August Update | 2022

I can’t believe it’s August already! I’ve given up trying to get the outdoor garden started this year, but my indoor herb garden is doing well and our baby fig tree is growing its first fig. We learned how figs get pollinated and it is super weird. We had visits from a tree frog and … More August Update | 2022

July Update | 2022

Most of my indoor plants are doing just fine, but most of my outdoor garden plants are struggling. We’ve got two herbs that are thriving, a few flowers that are coming along, and a lot of struggling sprouts. I love all the animals that come to visit our property, but I wish they didn’t love … More July Update | 2022

June Update | 2022

What a toasty spring we’ve been having. It isn’t even summer yet, but it feels like it. Recently I’ve been reading a lot, seeing some friends I haven’t seen in ages, and thinking about my priorities and goals for the rest of the year. A lot has changed in my life over the past few … More June Update | 2022

May Update | 2022

It’s getting warmer, everything’s blooming, the turkeys are roaming. Here’s what I’ve been up to: Reading I did my first readathon last month! It was fun, I read a lot, but it didn’t exactly solve my TBR problem. I have a habit of never reading a book once I own it. The fact that I … More May Update | 2022

April Update | 2022

Spring is here. It’s getting warmer, the birds are out more, and all the plants are getting ready to bloom. I personally love spring, even though the pollen has begun bothering me more now that I’m older, and am looking forward to warmer days and spending more time outside. Reading I finished a few books … More April Update | 2022

February Update | 2022

It’s the shortest month of the year, but I’m going to try to make the most of it and be just as productive as the longer months. It was nice to finally have something of a break last month and re-charge a bit finally, but I still got a good amount done and I’m ready … More February Update | 2022
