I’m a little late on this one. I’ve been experiencing a serious lack of motivation, here, struggling against a head cold. I’ve also been busy with my final project for the semester, but next week is our last class! It flew by.
I hope this month is treating you well. Do you have snow, yet? There’s none here in southern Maine, but I’m hoping for a white holiday. Even just a flurry would put me in the right spirit.
Finish holiday shopping. This one is obvious. I’m mostly done. I also need to mail out our cards!
Wrap up all my lose strings from moving. I’m embarrassed about this, but I still have maybe a handful of chores left from moving over the state line. Yes, it’s been months. Finalizing health insurance (that’s actually a new task), finding new doctors and switching over my license. All that good stuff. Let’s get that done.
Take time to read. This one astounds me, when I think about it. Most of the reading I’ve been doing lately has been for school. I haven’t really curled up with a good book for myself in weeks. Rather than zoning out to Netflix marathons, I’m going to dedicate those hours instead to the shelves of books I have waiting to be read.
Get back into a fitness routine. I was really good about walking every day over the summer, but I’ve let it slide with the onset of cold weather. Tj’s mum has offered me a guest pass to her gym (she also walks every single morning), so I think I might take her up on that offer. I really just want to dedicate a few hours every week to cardio. I’ve been a bit of a potato. Well, a lot of a potato.
Try a new recipe or two. It’s the time of year that I try to stretch myself when it comes to baking. I’ve got a couple old favorites, but I’d like to add something new to the dessert rotation.
The rest of this month is so full of socializing and THINGS TO DO that I am planning on spending the first week of January inside with the doors locked. #introvertsunite Here’s to not letting winter get me down. And you. Do you have any December goals? Share in the comments!
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
