I did a not-so-great job of staying on top of things this week (in fact, it’s 8:17pm as I type this, rather than my usual before 5pm preference), and I’ve struggled to get through the same book for almost two weeks now. The funny thing is that it doesn’t feel like I’ve been watching a ton of TV or anything; I simply don’t know where my time has gone.
I did bake a cake this week, though, for the first time in a long time, and it came out very well considering I was kind of just winging it, so I don’t think anyone would call this week a total loss.
Also, I’ve decided that this feature is going to become a monthly one. I still plan to do weekly gratitude posts on a more personal level (in my journal or just lists on random scraps), but I’d like to open up the month to a wider variety of posts. From now on, I’ll be listing and loving on the last Friday of each month as a little recap of great things from previous weeks, rather than every Friday to avoid burnout on the feature.

Three ways to make next month great:
- Read a book by an unknown author. / Unknown to you or the general populous–just expose your mind to something new and different.
- Take some naps. / Naps make just about everything better, but be sure not to make them too long or you’ll feel miserable when you wake up (I know I d0).
- Get a houseplant. / I’ve been wanting a new plant for our house for a while now, something to bring a little more life to the indoor space these winter months.
“It’s Friday; I’m in Love” is a monthly gratitude post. It aims to remind myself and others of the good things from the past month, big and small; to share ways to make the next month a positive one; and to serve as a record to look back on for the not-so-great days to come. The title comes from the song by The Cure.
