Apologies for the VERY delayed post – ack it’s the middle of… JUNE?! Here’s what I was up to in May!
I’ve been running like a mad woman – literally! I had a half marathon in early May and finished in a wicked personal best time (1:49)! Running has been most of my life actually! It’s been run, eat, sleep, repeat all in preparation for my full marathon *gasp* tomorrow?!?!?!
It’s actually spring out now (we even had a few days well above THIRTY celsius!) so I’ve been spending a lot of time outside staring at the lovely cherry blossoms!
Started working on construction on my first dollhouse, which I’ve been spending weeks sanding, construction, priming, painting… making an entire mess of my room and have been loving it! I really missed being creative and coating everything in PINK!
I also got inspired to finally get back to working on decorating my actual house!
After a few years, I finally got CURTAINS! My big dollhouse finally looks like a real dollhouse now! Which that cat has not destroyed yet (even I’m SHOCKED)!
Game of Thrones is actually DONE! Ahh! It’s been so long since I’ve been invested in a show like that (like so many people!) No spoilers here, but I really liked how it ended.
I started watching The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to fill in the gap! Definitely NOT the same genre, but it was time for something hilarious.
After years and years of hmming and hawing, I bought my very first Takara Neo Blythe doll (I’m planning a proper post soon… but I’m just beaming!)
And saw lots and lots of rainbows!
Hope to be a bit more active here on the blogosphere once running is done! I feel the creative bug biting again and need to put all that spare time to use! 😀
Can you believe April has already come and gone?! This month whizzed by even quicker than March and I can’t believe I’ve barely posted a thing. Wasn’t my intention to let this month run away from me, but I was on so many adventures I hardly had a second to sit down. Suppose I should do a nice catch-up and some monthly snaps here!
Hoppy Easter to all those who celebrated! If not, hope you at least got lots of cheap chocolate~ I sure did!
Spring means out with the dark everything, and in with the pastels and rainbows. They are EVERYWHERE and I LOVE it!
Enjoyed a lovely day off of work!
Spent lots of time with family!
Ate a ton of good food 🙂
My lovely cousin got engaged
And two of my high school friends found out they are having BABIES!
I celebrated one full year with my cat! Loving every second of cat mom-hood!
To celebrate, I bought a cat camera. Now I spend half my day at work watching her (shh!) – it was this one here from Amazon! I definitely do recommend it.
It was Administrative Professionals Day at work so my bosses got my a very nice vase of fancy flowers and took me out for lunch!
Got a pretty significant raise at work as well!
So splurged on a Nintendo Switch, which has been a blast!
Also planning to do some more renovating on my little home! Needs some more PINK! 😉
Baked about 12 dozen cookies this month. Probably ate about that many too 😀
Have been running non-stop!
Less than a week until my half marathon now (not super pumped that it’s going to be basically winter running though :O)!
Have run further away than ever before which makes for excellent adventures.
Ventured by an old mill a couple of kilometers away and it was scenic as heck.
Made some new running friends and reconnected with an old high school friend who is also into running!
Although the continued winter has some benefit. I’ve been enjoying being cooped up a little bit and spent ALL of last weekend playing The Sims. Nothing better than carefree days spent mindlessly laughing at the antics of little screen people!
New season of Game of Thrones! *gasps darkly and full of terror*
Been binge watching the Disney classics as well!
I’m finding Disney so visually inspiring. Been doing some ~casual cosplay~ of the Princesses which is mega fun
Found a whole new world (see what I did there…) of things to collect as well!
It is apparently warming up! There was one whole day that went all the way up to 19 degrees celsius!
Snow is GONE and grass is actually green
Got the patio setup on my balcony
Actually had a chance to sit on the patio one day so far so that was nice
Almost time to break out the summery dresses!
Quite excited for all of the fun warm cheery adventures to come!
This was a looong week! Maybe because it was the first full week back at work, or just the seemingly endless winterness, or just a case of the grumpies for some unknown reason, but it REALLY got to me!
My craft a day-ness suffered a bit because of it. There were a couple of days that I wasn’t able to do anything but knit a few stitches or glue a couple of pompoms and then did a proper hibernation and climbed into my cave at like 7 pm! Was just super sleepy!
But as soon as I escaped from work on Friday, I cranked up the heat in my house and threw on my most flowery dress and dreamed of green, flowers, and sunshine and I was BACK! This weekends’ accomplishments: bedazzled some photo frames, am relatively confident in doing a running stitch in sewing, made a LOT of new felt friends, organized my craft room (it was chaos and I kept losing Sugar in the mess!), polished off most of the remaining Christmas cookies (it had to be done :D), and walked a TON (to burn off the cookies and unwind)!
I was craving strawberries during my spring daydreams, so I made these guys out of felt!
Just have to keep remembering, sunnier days to come! 🙂 xoxo
