The Sunday Post

The Sunday Post
Hosted by:

The Sunday post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer~ It's a chance to share new ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. 

Happy New Year!!!!

I'm so happy that the holiday's are over. It's been crazy busy for the last few months and I finally feel like I can relax. At least I don't feel like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I've got a whole new year of goals, plans, to do lists, all new reading goals, and a new bullet journal. 

I've spent the last week getting back into my routine before all the holiday crazy which has been nice. Thankfully the kids head back to school tomorrow so I will be able to get some much needed quiet time. 

The weather has been wonky here in Northern California from cold to nice enough to not even need a jacket. I'm hoping it means we are over the cold weather I love the 70's days but I feel we are headed into rainy weather. Which means lots of muddy puppy prints on the floor but lots of rainy days to read. 

A few of my 2018 goals.
Read at least 250 books.
Journal daily and use my Bullet Journal daily.
More crafty projects, more sewing, and more projects.
I want to do more new recipes and more baking.
I also want to pull out my sketch book and start drawing more.
Last I want to work on my graphic skills. 

Read this past week 

I finished 4 Harley Quinn comics 
As well as Naughty List by Nicole Marie & Bella Holiday
Not as much as I would have liked but I'm finding more time.

Crafty projects & Baking/cooking & Gardening
I haven't done any gardening yet but I'm looking forward to it starting in the next few months planning for my garden will start. 
I've been adding to my printest board full of projects that I want to do and recipes I want to try. I haven't done much yet just a little crocheting so far but I'm looking forward to a lot more.
I plan to finish this project this month it's a blanket but it may be turned into a shrug sweater in the near future. 

Quote/ fun stuff

I really like this inspirational quote from (here). 
How I plan to look at 2018

Still working on my DVR full of Christmas movies. My husband is getting really tired of them but I told him just a few more days. I've almost watched them all at this point at least the ones I want to watch.

  2. So, so jealous of the JLA book for review! I need to get more active on Instagram, I just don't have any really good places to take pictures in my house. I've got some ideas on how I'm going to change that this year though. We'll see.
