This week was busy, hectic, & stressful. And I’m afraid I’m in for a few more like it. When I found this “Punch Today in the Face” quote on instagram, I knew I had to print it and stick it in the book.
I’m really enjoying my yoga class – and totally using it as an excuse to paint my toes in fun designs. Unfortunately this week’s class was canceled due to icy weather.
We experienced a smallish ice storm late in the week that left a beautiful layer of glass on all of the trees, and fortunately caused no major damage. To document the ice storm, I printed off several of my instagrammed photos directly to Walgreen’s using the printicular app for my iphone. I then slipped them into a Design I page protector, added some thickers, and called it done.
I also signed up for Postcrossing a couple of weeks ago – an online site where you can register to send and receive postcards from all over the globe. This week I got my first card in the mail – it traveled all the way from Iowa.
Jessica and I went out Saturday night for drinks and food. I got an amazing Tom Collins – love those. Sunday I spent the day dreaming of my spring garden and planning what to plant.
I’ve also been reading up a storm & totally taking advantage of my local library’s online book reservations.
A few other highlights from the week:
- I mailed postcards to Russia
- I called in to a Compassion Advocates conference about coaching and goal setting as it relates to ministry
- I sewed many a Dr. Who tea towel & began dreaming of more sewing projects
