A Day in the Life: December 2016
A Day in the Life is a monthly linkup passed down to me from Georgie. I created a page for the series and listed dates for the first three months. I’ll try to keep on with the prompts where I can. I chose random ones today, because my days been random lately.
Georgie also made for me a year’s worth of graphics for this series, so #winning. ???
A random note from today:
There are 80g of frozen raspberries in the smaller-seeming freezer smoothie pack in the freezer. (It’s important for me to know this, because I have my second batch of raspberries freezing and need 125g of raspberries for the recipe.)
Something I accomplished today is…
Crawling out of bed. ? It’s so warm under my blankets. I guess, if you’re still cold after you’ve put on more clothes and covered yourself in blankets, the heater needs to be turned up. Or TURNT UP.
I feel like maybe I used that wrong. ?
Today, I learned…
I can blow-dry my hair straight. My hair is dry sooner, and I don’t have to fry it with a straight iron. I’ve straightened it so long it must have taken the hint. It’s a bit of a long and tedious process, but leads to less tangles and allows me to go to bed with straight, untangled hair—which means less knots!
The time right now is…
Today, I’m grateful for…
Having to get up at seven in the morning to fix an accident on my blog before actually going to sleep. I witnessed many birds outside the backdoor window enjoying the bird feed. I saw a white dove fly from a bird feeder to the birth bath. I didn’t have my glasses on, but the only white birds of that size here are white doves. ?
Seeing the birds actually eat the food I put out there reminds me I’m part of something bigger than myself—the world; it keeps me grounded. ?
Later, I’m going to…
Have a mini spa with some samples that were sent to me, watch a movie, listen to music, and write. I’m also going to finish freezing my fruit and organizing it into smoothie packs.
One word to describe today (no cheating!):
