I Need A Hobby // Painting

Happy Monday! And happy start to the second half of 2019! Can you believe it? Time for my monthly hobby update!

I’m not gonna lie, this month has been hard. For emotional reasons with the anxiety around my dad’s surgery mid-month and his ongoing hospital recovery everyday since. Didn’t have a lot of leftover time for hobbies after working all day during the week and hospital visits at night. Free time went to day to day personal and home upkeep and sleep #exhausted. So this will probably be a quick post…maybe, lol…

Grown Up Summer Camp

We’re just two short days away from the official start of summer, hooray!! And while the part of me that has been longing for warmer weather and extended hours of sunlight is happy for it to finally be here, there’s another part of me that can’t help but be nostalgic, and even wistful, for the freedom felt in the summers of my youth. They weren’t anything extravagant, far from it in fact. But the relaxed attitude and carefree vibes are what I miss most. Being a grown up with a full time job kinda sucks the fun out of it, and makes it hard to achieve those summers of yesteryear that I long for.

I Need A Hobby // Jewelry Making

Hello, hello! It’s time for my monthly hobby update!

Reading…still at it! Though I was a little late starting May’s read, but I chose Planting Dandelions¬†by Kyran Pittman, which I had on my Kindle ages ago and had never read it. And quite honestly didn’t even remember what it was about. I chose it because it sounded like it would go with May’s gardening theme… but it’s not about gardening, lol… it was good though. Well, I haven’t finished it yet, but it’s good so far and I will finish it early this month. It’s a memoir of sorts. Poignant and humorous. I’m enjoying it. I also plan to read Michelle Obama’s Becoming this month. And 6 Keys by Jillian Michaels is still simmering on the back burner… I’ll pick it up here and there if the spirit moves me.

I Need A Hobby // Gardening, Revisited

Hello, Happy Wednesday and Happy May Day! It’s time for my monthly hobby update!

Still going strong with my¬†reading hobby! For my April read, I completed Laura Vanderkam’s time management fable Juliet’s School of Possibilities, and started Jillian Michaels’ 6 Keys which I’ll continue into May and will probably keep as a background read, and pick another book for the official May title, still TBD.

I actually made some solid efforts at photography, and will continue to strive to improve my skills.
