Thursday evening I got to video chat with my family! We hadn’t all done that together yet so it was so extremely beneficial for me to do that. It did make me miss them even more than I already did but I think seeing their faces was worth it. I’m now trying to get us all to agree to do a virtual craft hangout together sometime.
I didn’t feel like writing on Thursday or Friday, and as I’ve been telling my friends, “Now is the time to do what you want, when you want, and not feel guilty about not doing something you think you should be doing.” Basically, be kind to yourself. I enjoy writing and I like posting on my blog often, but if I’m not in the mood, I’m not going to beat myself up about it because the blog post I would have written when I’m not in the right space is not a blog post that should be shared.
So here I am today! Today’s biggest accomplishments are:
- I washed the new romper I bought recently because I wore it on Wednesday to the park and got so much sunscreen on it. I have to hand wash this piece of clothing so it took me a few days to get to it. (On a side note, I love this romper, it was a great purchase and shall make its way into one of my pictures one of these days)
- I video chatted with my meetup group and we played a couple rounds of Love Letter and then played Cards Against Humanity. We had eight people total and it was awesome and good for my being.
- I painted my nails! I don’t paint my nails often, if ever anymore, and so this is a big deal for me. I still need to put on the top, sealer coat so better do that soon but I’m quite proud. A picture of my nails will have to find itself on here too in the next day or two.
Elisabeth and I also went on our daily walk and explored a couple new blocks. The neighborhoods around us are so incredibly intriguing and interesting, I really love this area. The streets, however, are very confusing and there are moments where I’m not quite sure where I am. We always find our way but it’s an odd set up. The streets wind and turn and lead to other streets I wouldn’t expect and many are cul-de-sacs or dead ends. I’m sure they were designed very purposefully to make the neighborhoods more quiet because no one would dare venture outside of their direct path to their home. I guess it means I go on a mini adventure every day, never know what way we’re going to go or where exactly we’ll end up.
The rest of the evening shall be full of eating dinner outside, cross stitching, and watching some tv. Not every day has to be exciting or mind blowing. That’s saying something coming from me. I think this isolation really is making me more patient and slowing me down. Good evening, everyone.
