Happy March! The sun is shining and I’m ready to jump into another week of creating a home filled with peace, understanding, joy, beauty, and faith for my family. I won’t do it perfectly, but I’ll do my best and that’s all any of us can do.
I’m noticing more and more blogs discussing the coronavirus. I don’t plan on doing blog posts about it. I have a wealth of information in my coronavirus forum (including a new video from this weekend) and that’s where I will continue to discuss it as I have been for well over a month. I want the blog portion of my site to remain generally focused on the main themes of cozy living, homeschooling, homemaking, gifted/2e, Christian faith, etc. So while I will probably mention it in passing, if you want to read my take on the developments you’ll have to go to the forums. I did start a discussion this morning called What will it take for you to stay home? because I’m curious how people are thinking about this.
Related to homemaking, I updated all of my recipes on the site. They are filed under Sallie’s Favorite Comfort Food Recipes. I was never happy with the graphics we made for them so we redid them this weekend. I like them much better now. I also reworked the posts to make them easier to use. And I posted Caroline’s Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Muffins over the weekend if you missed that.
So my goals for this week include the following.
Goal 1 – Set up mobile banking. I have resisted doing this, but we have quite a few clients who pay us by check via snail mail. I’d like the option to avoid going to banks any more than necessary in the coming weeks and months so this will be it. I’d rather have it set up and not use it then want it and scramble to get it done.
Goal 2 – Spend time on homemaking inspiration. I need to immerse myself in some positive and inspiring reading myself. I think I have enough blogs and websites to share to do a Cozy Blogs I’m Reading Part 2 as a follow-up to the popular post Cozy Blogs I’m Reading so I’ll probably combine this goal with writing a post to share.
Goal 3 – Spend some time doing more long-range homeschool planning.
On the blogging front, I have so many partially finished posts that I would like to complete and get up. I have two more products for my Distraction Free Handwriting collection I would like to get done (print and cursive sentences). And the 2020-2021 Homeschool Planners. So I have a full slate of things to do around here!
That’s what I have going on. What do you have planned this week – big or small? Let us know in the comments and then come back on Friday to share how you did.
Have a great Monday!
