Appreciating // Your nice and thoughtful comments about blogging in response to my post a few days ago. Even though I probably won’t be posting every single weekday anymore, I definitely expect to post somewhere between 3-5 days as week. Basically, I’m not going to waste time doing some sort of “filler” post just to say I posted that day. I’ve done that a few times in the last year or so, and I’m never happy with those posts.
Enjoying // The new showerhead we got for our guest bathroom. It’s one with a hose, so I can use it to wash Emma’s hair instead of repeated use of a plastic cup. (She inexplicably FREAKED OUT the first time, but loves it now.) I had no idea how easy it is to change a showerhead — Jose had it installed in less than 5 minutes, and I’m not exaggerating. Now I want a new one for our master bath! Maybe one of those nifty rain ones?
Needing // To treat both the front and back yards for fire ants. I noticed a rapidly growing mound in our front yard a few days ago, and Jose nearly got bitten after stumbling upon a less-visible mound while knocking some tree fertilizer stakes into the ground. If you live somewhere that doesn’t have fire ants, consider yourself very VERY fortunate.
Waiting // To receive the Apple gift cards I’m owed from trading in several old devices. I wanted to upgrade to an iPad with more than 16GB of memory, so I traded in my 1) old iPhone 5, 2) Jose’s old iPhone 5, 3) Jose’s iPad mini (that he hasn’t used since getting his iPhone 6+) and 4) my 4th gen iPad (that was perfectly fine except for the memory issue). That gives me enough credit to get a new iPad at no extra cost. Sweet!
(Also, sheesh, do we buy enough Apple devices?)
Cutting // Fabric, fabric, and more fabric as I get started on the quilt and pillow patterns I’m testing.
Considering // Buying Elise Cripe’s Get to Work Book. I haven’t used a paper planner in years but I love the ideas behind hers. Even if I never use it, I’d consider the money a worthwhile donation — her blog has been hands down my favorite daily read for at least a year now.
Pondering // This new (to me at least) idea of organizing a to-do list by emotion. I have a bad tendency to load up my list with things that don’t necessarily excite me, or just feel like obligations. I wonder…if I shifted my point of view to think about how a to-do item would make me feel, would that change things at all?
