May 2016

Well my triumphant return to blogging is not really off to a great start… sorry about that. I managed to cross a couple of things off of my list of goals for April, but didn’t manage to write a post about any of them. We finished painting our house, I kind of participated in the readathon, but life got in the way and we ended up going on a country drive instead (see snapshot above). I have not yet set up our home office, but now that we’re set up with all the storage solutions we need I will hopefully cross that off the list this month. We did go and see Captain America, but it didn’t end up being a full-blown date night as expected, as I was sick and ended up in hospital. Luckily we managed to go back a couple of days later and watch the movie in its entirety. Onwards and upwards I guess, and into the wonderful month of May. We are only 7 months away from Christmas! #hooray Here are my goals for this month-

Goal 1: Take books to the book exchange
Goal 2: Re-do the herb garden in the back yard
Goal 3: Attend a themed pot luck dinner party
Goal 4: Set up the home office

April 2016

If you can imagine me picking up my keyboard and blowing the dust off of it please do, because that is literally what I had to do before writing this post. Not only has it been a long time since I wrote a blog post, but we also recently returned to our house after it was painted and there is dust pretty much everywhere. I’m not complaining though because the house smells like paint and I LOVE IT. I honestly haven’t felt the drive to blog for a few months now, and I’ve noticed it seems to be the trend with a few people I follow to be “closing up shop” and shutting down their blog. This is the direction I was headed but I figured why not give this blogging thing one more go, and see how I feel about it this time around. The format of things will change (yet again), because I am heading even further away from the beauty blogging world but it feels like a natural transition and I’m comfortable with it. I thought long and hard about what I like writing about, and one of my favourite things to share with you are my monthly goals and whether or not I achieve them. So I aim to check in at the beginning of the month with a list of goals, and write posts about each one as I achieve them. Here’s what’s on the cards for April –

Goal 1: Paint The House
Goal 2: Participate in the Readathon
Goal 3: Set up our home office
Goal 4: Go on a date night to see Captain America

(Sounds pretty achieveable to me! And I say that will full confidence knowing that we have already finished painting the house. PRAISE BE. I will write a full action-packed post on that debacle sometime this week.)
