I haven't written much lately. While it's obviously on this blog, I haven't posted much anywhere else. I haven't opened my paper journal in a few weeks. I just haven't written.
I wish there was some profound, deep excuse for not doing so. The truth is, I just haven't wanted to write.
Focusing on fundamentals. That's what I like to think of myself doing fopr these past few weeks. Getting back to basics and whatever other cliché you might want to insert here. This includes home and school, really.
We spend a good part of the weekend reorganizing the garage to more efficiently use the space (and built-in storage cabinets). We inherited a refridgerator when we bought the house and have since ben using it as a second space in the garage. But I have come to realize that it's just not needed. We don't need the extra space, the extra add to our power consumption, nor another appliance to maintain. So, I donated it to a local high school "life skills" group.
We also spent a lot of time on the kitchen, reorganizing for a cleaner workflow and grouping like items together in a much better (I think) way than they were before. We have a lot of ideas along these lines for all over our house, and want to work methodically to "implement" them for the next few months.
Making our house a home.
I have managed to keep up on my weekly newsletter. I like the routine of reflecting on the week and sharing those random topics with the subscribers. It keeps me thinking about writing overall.
The break wasn't intentional but it was necessary and appreciated. I think I'm ready to get back into it now.
