Sunday Post ~ Slow Return

0abf9b9e-b7ac-4d59-b451-7eb7c64ea1b9_zps47hi5hueThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news, a post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things received, and share news about what is coming up on the blog for the week ahead. To get in on the Sunday funday, see the rules here: Suday Post Meme.


I’m back. And  I feel the most unproductive I’ve ever been in my life. I’ve been spending a lot of time hiding in the dark cave of the living room during the day, watching TV and playing a game on my phone I should probably just delete. That’s not the only thing I’ve been doing, though. I’ve gone through some boxes and gotten rid of or sold some things. I’ve been trying out new recipes; I’ve done a French toast bake, ziti bake, tater tot sloppy joe, chicken pot pie, onion rings, and ribbon potatoes. I want to try a blueberry pancake bake next.

And I’ve been tending to my jungle. I’m trying to water my plants every night. Even at 9pm it is still nearly 90 degrees here, so I’m relegated to watering late at night. It takes about 15-20 minutes, and some nights I get too tired before I remember to go do it, but I’m trying to make a habit of it.

I’ve grown a little stagnant on working in my bullet journal. I am trying a couple new things to see how they work out, and I purchased some new stencils and patterned washi tape for new ideas I want to work on.

Just a couple of days ago I realized I’ve lost a smidge of weight in my lower abdomen. Starting to see results from doing my Plexus regimen consistently. 🙂

Read more about what I’ve been up to in my June Chit Chat.




I am slowly returning from my hiatus. I tried coming back in June, and then I destroyed my computer (thanks, milk). I have been horrible with reading. I only read one book all of June, and started a second. It was pitiful.

I’ve spent the past week catching up on the backlog of reviews I needed to write (somewhere around 15) and getting a jump on scheduled posts. Unproductive at its finest. I’ve been working up to visiting and commenting, and hopefully my blog starts to see an uptick in traffic.

  1. I love the look of your calendar…so pretty and neat! My handwriting is barely legible, but I like the idea of this kind of control over my activities.

    Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  2. I love your calendar! I just moved into a new a bullet journal so I am trying new things or least hoping to try new things. Tator Tot sloppy joe sounds really good.

  3. Glad you are back. You have made me so hungry, and I will gladly test that blueberry pancake bake! Your journal is adorable. The weather has been hard on plants. Oh no on the milk and laptop debacle. That is horrible.

  4. I’m happy you’re back! And don’t rush.. You’ll get things up and running again soon enough! 😉
    I’ve followed you on Instagram. I’ve been trying to do more with my Blog Instagram so I’ll check yours out!
    Have a great week and happy reading!
