    The stores have long been brimming with chocolates, roses, and cards.  But romance and chocolate aren’t the only things to celebrate in February.  And they are by no means the only things to do.  This winter month has so many different holidays and challenges to keep you active through all 28 days.

    Between all the terrible news and running around trying to get a day job I've had to make sure to take care of myself.  This means a lot of things.  Making sure to take my medicine.  Getting enough food, sleep, water.  But it also means trying to do things that will make me happy.  So I have been taking time to indulge in things I love.  Today I have five things for you that are cute, kawaii, or just bring me joy.

Things I Love Thursday: Taking Time to Clean

    The last two days have been busy.  I am applying for jobs and I have been doing stuff mostly for that. I am not going to college this semester so I am going to try and to make some money.  The last year was a rough one with no regular paying job.   I am so grateful for friends that I have been able to lean on.  I have been able to help them with some things too, but I am so grateful to have a home and food.  Sometimes the things we are grateful for are big and sometimes they are small.

    The house does look a bit like I have been too busy.  I can't even use the desk in my room there is so much sitting on it and the chair there is currently holding the clean cloths.  I still have some work to do today, but I think I am going to dedicate a good bit of it to putting things away and cleaning.  What are your plans for today?

A Month of Letters Challenge is Coming

    For several years in a row now I have participate in the Month of Letters Chalenge during February.  There are only two rules to the challenge.
  1. In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs. Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture, or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch. 
  2. Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items. 

    Do you enjoy writing or recieving letters?  Are you tired of just getting junk mail and bills?  Snail mail may be slow, but it can also be fun and is easy to personalize.  I love sending and reciving letters, but with the fast pace of life I often forget to sit down and enjoy things.  Will you join me and many others in sending and recieving mail this next month?
