Wishlist Wednesday – Waiting for Spring Edition

Posted on

We are having some crazy weather here. But if nothing else at least it involves more sunlight with each passing day.
It’s definitely needed because our snow is knee level and it feels like it may never end.

The little we lose by the sun being out, we get back when it snows at night.
It is also warming up some, though I am not sure how long that is going to last.

I am all about the littlest ways to get through the days now until Spring.
Spring is the only thing on my wish list this week.
I think everybody is pretty  much in that frame of mind right now.

While this winter has not been as brutal as last year (Thank goodness!) I am ready to be on to the next season. Bring on the sunshine, rainbows, sun showers and the PLANTS and FLOWERS. I am ready to be out in the garden.

We purchased a bag of Wildflower seeds that were on sale the other day, just for the hope that they bring.
My #loveyourinnergeek gift today was a small forget me not growing kit.

My reading has been slow and sparse this year so far. I am shifting my schedule. I am trying to be in bed by 10pm now.
I have been wanting to be up earlier in the day but kidlet has been getting up during the night and getting up early.

So my me time has not been happening in the morning.

However. My self care has been getting better. My skin looks and feels amazing.
I have also been doing well with regular journaling, morning pages and writing in the daily planner.
The gratitude planner is not going quite as well, Though it may get better once Lent starts because they are in the same book. My topics are written in where I will see it.

Here’s hoping.
What little things are you clinging to, to help you make it to Spring?


Wishlist Wednesday

It’s new fridge day here. I am hoping that it goes off with out a hitch because I am ready to be back to a full size fridge.

We are also dealing with extreme cold.Screenshot_2015-weather
Thankfully, I took Kidlet out and let her run through the toy section of Walmart last night, because she is ready to be done with the extreme weather.
We are people who need to get outside daily, this weather is not letting that happen.

I decided to do a Wishlist Wednesday post this week as a bit of fun since it has been such a tough one. They’re fun for me and a bit of a break is needed when your kid is waking up super early and going to bed  really late.

My wishlist, is very focused on art lately.

I am crazy for French curves, now that I have seen them and the fun they can mean.
Turns out I had a stencil with a similar shape on it, so I am having a lot of fun with that. But I am definitely going to need more.
My motto has become “Moving Forward”

Zentangle made me remember Mandala’s and I found How to Create Mandalas.

create mandalasWay over my head right now, but it would be interesting to try in the future.

Spectrum Noir might be an interesting brand to check out. Thank you Amazon, for the heads up. haha.

My big wish for today however, is that the fridge comes with out a hitch and the extreme cold will pass quicker than they expected.
I can not take a week of minus -33.

What’s your wish for the week?
