Well, like the title says, I didn’t do a whole lot of writing over the last week.
Friday was my biggest writing day. I worked on a few posts for Sustainably North – I wrote one about the Ukrainian Christmas celebration my family and I have (and how this year we all made gifts instead of buying them, which was fantastic), then a few of me taste testing some milk alternatives (an introduction post and a post about soy milk). So that was good because I’m a bit ahead with the blog again.
Then after that, I spent a bunch of time just generally getting caught up on things. I went through a whole bunch of emails on Sunday. I finally took down most of my Christmas decorations. I repotted one of my violets, which was actually a double plant; I split them apart and put them in new soil together, so I’ll have to wait and see how they do (they haven’t been doing well in the pot they were in, so I’m hoping this will help!) Then I tried to clean up my lucky bamboo, which for reasons unknown has been turning yellow. So far it’s just been the leaves that have been turning; at a friend’s advice, I got a water filter and gave it filtered water instead of tap water. Hopefully it will like that better!
Then yesterday, I tried sitting down to write but it just wasn’t happening. So after reading a book for a while, and watching some Youtube, I decided to start scanning some old documents and notebooks. I’ve been meaning to do this for quite awhile. So even though I didn’t get anything written, I at least felt somewhat productive. Plus that made some room for a few books that have been piling up around my place (they were mostly gifts from Christmas that I just hadn’t found a place for yet).
So even though I didn’t get any writing done, I hope that decluttering all of these papers will help give me the mental space I needed to write more this week. 🙂
