Fabulous Friday – 4 September

Fabulous Friday Button

I used to do this post and got away from it for whatever reason. This makes me sad because we should always find ways to celebrate the little things in life. Also, what better day on which to do this than Fridays? So, here are the things that make this a Fabulous Friday for me this week.

  • Long weekends – I purposely took off today for a much-needed mental health day and as a way to extend the long weekend before dance starts up again next week. There is nothing better than more than two days of no work on the immediate horizon.

  • Planner decorating – I have always used a planner and used to have no problems. Now? I must decorate each page. Granted, I want to use my planner even more now because of how pretty it is. Thankfully, the type of planner I have means I can still keep the functionality while adding embellishments that are more me.
  • Cooking – I cooked meals for the family every day this week. It was so wonderful. It made me feel happier and more at peace than I have in a long time.

What makes this a Fabulous Friday for you?

Our Net Zero Home – The Slow Grind

It’s been a while since we’ve been back here to update on the house and to be honest, things have been a slow grind. After closing on the lot, we moved quickly to clearing it, as you saw in the previous post. All the trees and root systems were dug out, and the excess topsoil…

Sunday Reflections – 30 August 2015

Sunday Reflections Button

Surprise, surprise. It was another busy week at Casa Shannon. However, this time, we got the bliss of a weekend that was completely free from appointments, meetings, activities, and the like. Well, that’s not true. We were supposed to spend the day on Saturday at Lake Geneva, but the weather definitely did not cooperate for…

Inside Michelle’s Brain – Reviews and Reviewers

One of the first courses I ever took in college was a Comp. Lit. class. I am ashamed to admit I had no idea what a Comp. Lit. class was. I knew going into it that I had to read…a lot. It was not until I was halfway through the semester when I finally understood…

Sunday Reflections – 23 August 2015

Sunday Reflections Button

Happy Sunday! No, I have not disappeared. Not yet anyway. This month has been absolutely brutal. I did not expect it to be like this at all, and it makes me very nervous about the school year. However, we survived last year. We can do it again, right? So, what has been keeping us busy? Well,…
