the best books i read this month – november 2020

Another month down and if you are anything like me you are well into the Christmas Spirit already. My tree has been up for weeks, the lights have gone up on the house, and I am so happy there is still over a month of Christmas Spirit to go. Dark mornings and evenings are always…

why we do this – halfway through hallmark 2020

The question that Nigel and I have been getting over and over whenever we talk about our challenge of watching all 40 2020 Hallmark Christmas movies is “why?”. People automatically think that this is some form of torture that we are putting ourselves through, but really it is so much more. Truly we understand that…

planning for 2021

That seems like a bit of an oxymoron doesn’t it? How can one plan for 2021 when it seems like I don’t even know what the world is going to look like next week? This is hard for me as someone who loves to plan, someone who likes knowing what things are going to be…

what work from home looks like now

For me at least, working from home doesn’t look like it is ending any time soon. Back in the beginning of April I wrote a post called “working from home – my tips and tricks” and work from home looked very different then. Seven months later more routines have been made, some things have gotten…

what minimalism means to me

Talking about minimalism can be a tricky topic. When you think about a minimalist a certain picture comes into your mind. At least for me it does. It is a house with white walls, blank shelves, and no more than 100 items owned in your entire home. Or it is someone who lives in a…

the best books i read this month – september 2020

Fall is here y’all and I am stoked. I have started turning my fireplace on and cuddling up with a blanket and hot cup of tea while I get drawn into a new book has been a real highlight of the last month. There has been a lot of 5 star read this month and…

pruning and waiting – september garden update

Things have really slowed down at the garden so there isn’t a lot to report but there are still some things for me to share so I do think these posts will be able to go on for a few more months before a winter hiatus. This is the first month that we don’t have…
