Sunday Sevens #90

I know, I know…I’ve missed a week again! Recently I’ve felt like blogging has been at the bottom of my to-do list 😦 BUT I do still have 7 photos to share with you from the last couple of weeks!

1. My current read is To Kill A Mockingbird. As much as I love reading, I have just never had the chance to read this book. However, my Mum was re-reading it when she came to visit at Christmas so she left me her copy…published in 1976!!!

Goals: February 2016

Despite having a few lazy days in January, I feel like I’ve actually had a productive month.  My goals were met with ‘mostly’ success AND I’ve also managed to work out at least 3 times each week, which wasn’t on my original plan for January!

Let’s have a look at the goals I set in January:

I FINISHED THE WESTIE CROSS STITCH! WOOOOOHOOOO!!!  Now I just need to decide what to do with it. 🙂
I also finished the vintage dress, repaired the doggy car seat and attempted the crate mat covers….that still counts, right?! The only thing I didn’t manage was the quilters coasters for our living room.
Finished All The Light We Cannot See and I’m half way through The Man In The High Castle.
We worked really hard on saving money in January and I feel like we’ve made a great start to the year. We didn’t even splurge on Amazon.:-)
I managed at least 2 dog walks everyday, not three everyday but I’m happy with what I did manage with them.
I didn’t start the crochet blanket at all – the only one of my goals that I didn’t meet!

Review: Q&A a Day for Creatives: A 4-Year Journal by Potter Style

Some months ago, I saw a book being blogged about that was a journal for a year, and each day had its own suggestive sentence that you completed.  I enjoyed the style of the book and thought it was a nice idea to have a different type of diary that you could look back on to see what thoughts you were having on a particular day.  I searched for the book and placed it on my Amazon wish list.

When I finally got around to choosing my next review book from Blogging For Books, I noticed a very similar book to the one I had seen before…only it was better and much more suited to someone like myself!

Sunday Sevens #48

Phew! Just in time for a Sunday post, in the US anyway! Busy week + busy weekend 🙂 This week was Adams’s birthday, my Mum’s birthday and we passed our ‘1 year in the USA’ date. We still can’t believe that we have lived here for a year!

Here’s my week in pictures:

1. I bought a few more books (again!!!)… can you guess my favourite reading genre?!

Sunday Sevens #46

We’ve had a good little week in our corner of the world 🙂 The sale of our house in the UK finally went through so it really has felt like a huge weight has been lifted! Adam ended up having a day off work mid week, which was lovely but really seemed to knock my days about. Anyway, here are my 7 photographs!

1. After a training session last Saturday, we are going back to crate training with Maisy to help with toilet training and separation issues. We are trying to get her to feel comfy in her crate so we are putting her in for her daytime naps. It’s hard because she cries but she has already been so much better in the house and we have left her alone for a few hours without her destroying anything or making a mess! I feel like training is going in the right direction. 🙂
