Oh wow, is it May already? March seemed to drag on forever and April flew by. I’ve been more intentional how I spend my time lately and it’s definitely helping my mood. The warmer weather and sunshine are a nice treat so I’ve been spending time in the backyard cleaning up. It gives me hope that the end of quarantine is almost here. This week I have spent a lot of time talking to my family. We had to virtually sit Shiva since we could not be all together in person. It was different but it kept us laughing as all generations were trying to set up Zoom. It was nice to see everyone and share memories. Now more than ever I have been reaching out to friends and family just to chat. Reach out and check in with your friends and family this week. Also snail mail is also really fun to get in the mail! I’ve been having fun getting handmade cards from my family every week.
This Mother’s Day is also a great way to send a gift to show appreciation for everything our moms do for us. I’ve been calling my mom to talk about the weather or about the laundry that needs to be folded to procrastinate. It’s a weird time right now and I like having someone to talk to when I’m bored. I put together a few gift ideas that can easily be shipped straight to the door since we can’t leave our homes to shop.
Just started watching The Last Ship and already on season 3! It’s about a pandemic taking over the world… how fitting for our current pandemic!
I like to have the tv on in the background so I’ve moved on from the Real Housewives of NYC to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The Parks and Rec Special is also a must watch!
I’m using my candles as a nice treat to myself at night while I make dinner.
We finally went grocery shopping and it’s so nice to have food in the house again.
A new favorite tradition is watching a classic Disney movie on Sunday morning while eating breakfast.
It took some work but I am loving my new living room setup.
