I Need A Hobby // Reading

Happy Friday everyone! I took this week off from my 9-5 gig in honor of my 35th birthday, which I just celebrated on Wednesday. It’s been SO cold here in Pennsylvania that I’ve pretty much just stayed indoors this week (except for a trip to IKEA (!) on Monday and my birthday dinner on Wednesday). To fill the time I’ve been cleaning out and organizing a few spaces that have gotten wayyy out of control (after binge watching Tidying Up on Netflix over the weekend). I’m jumping on the Marie Kondo bandwagon and getting rid of what doesn’t spark joy! But more on that next week!

Today I want to restart my series on hobbies that I began last year with my gardening post (HERE) and never continued beyond that. So the plan is that every month I will be introducing a new hobby I want to tackle, and hopefully by the end of the year I’ll have a few new things that I enjoy doing to fill my free time more thoughtfully.

First up, reading!

Most definitely that’s how I’ve been feeling the past few weeks and now it’s just official.

But I don’t particularly like being cold, lol, so I’m putting together a list of 11 warm activities to get you through the rest of the cold winter!

A Fresh Take On New Year’s

I shouldn’t say this is a completely new idea, because I’ve been doing it the past couple of years. But it’s something different from the norm, or at least I haven’t heard anyone else talk about it.

New Year’s Day is January 1, and my birthday is January 30. So rather than give in to all the hype that is the media blitz about goals and resolutions at this time of year, I allow myself some grace. During the month of December, I mull over what it is I want to achieve in the new year, some of which I implement on the 1st and some I delay until MY new year, my birthday, at the end of January.
