Today’s challenge is a day in my life! So I kept my camera with me all day to show you what I typically get up to. I absolutely LOVED this as it makes you realize how much you do actually accomplish and help you capture tiny moments you may otherwise not think about. So here we go!~
Day 5 of the October Blogging Challenge is all about favourite movies!! I’ll admit that I tend to not be overly adventurous with movie watching, and I would prefer to watch my favourites which I have seen hundreds of times rather than trying to find something new. Favourite movies fill you with great memories and take you back to a good place even when current times aren’t that way.
I tend to lean towards whimsical, fantastical, fun movies with light plots and a splash of humour. Hopefully some of my favourites bring you a bit of nostalgia and happiness like they bring me!
My Neighbor Totoro
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Alice in Wonderland
Tomorrow is officially the last day of summer! I’m very excited for all the changes autumn will bring! It certainly looks like autumn here already. Just in the past day the trees have all started going from green to orange and leaves are falling! Yay for crunchy leaf piles!! I feel like autumn is really ENERGIZING me and I managed to accomplish a lot this week.
I’ve been trying to get outside as much as I can and saying hi to the friendly neighbourhood animal pals. These guys were having a blast with the leaves:
Sugar is definitely entertained watching the leaves fall from the window as well:
I’ve also been in a cleaning mood, and reorganized the closet today. Time to pull out the toasty warm cardigans again!
Did a ton of creating as well ~ I’m so glad to be back at it! Spent a lot of time knitting and getting caught up on the 2020 Mood Blanket:
Sugar and binged a bunch of Studio Ghibli Films! Didn’t realize that they are on Netflix now so it was a huge treat.
Which inspired me to make a Totoro feltie! Here he is in progress (while watching Arrietty sew in The Secret World of Arrietty):
Bought a Hello Kitty Perler Bead kit so also been tinkering with that a bit too ( you can get your own here!):
My parents were in town this week as well, so I had the privilege of babysitting my sweet pup Heidi, who lives with my parents at their cottage. I’ve missed the heck out of her this year so it was nice catching up!
The rainbow blanket has been great for some of the chilly nights we’ve been having lately ~ and I love it! Bye summer, see ya next year!
Hope everyone is doing as well as they possibly can! Certainly the latest turn of events in the world is something that nobody was expecting. But instead of wallowing, we should make the best of the moments where we have a bit more opportunity to relax and stay healthy (for ourselves, and of course for others)!
Finding an ongoing project is something that I need to fill the time and stave off boredom, so I’ve chosen to rewatch one of my all-time favourite TV shows ~ SAILOR MOON! Sailor Moon is the type of sheer positivity, motivation, and overcoming something dark and unknown that we all need right now so I thought it was appropriate!
If you’ve never watched (or need refresh!), Sailor Moon is an anime show that originated in Japan in the 1990s, and then was initially brought to North America by DiC in 1995. The show is about a clumsy 14-year-old girls’ adventures with her friends, cat, school, and well… badass enemies to destroy and a love story that spans a whole millenia – and was a huge hit and began many kids’ anime journeys. The more you watch, the deeper the story is and the love remains just as strong to this day. Let’s take a look!!
What are you doing to fill the time in lockdown?!
