Hello December

After my 30 days of thankful, it felt odd taking a day off but it was a day well spent. The weather was cold so I bundled up and went for a gentle run – a habit I am trying to revive. For a few years I participated in a run streak – at least one mile a day between Thanksgiving and New Year’s. I don’t see that happening this year but what about knitting at least 15 minutes a day? I can get behind that idea! I also spent time working in my planner and getting reset for the week followed by some cooking and reading and watching my husband get there lights on the tree.

In the evening there was time for a bit of scrolling. I have been choosing a word for each year, primarily guided by Ali Edwards. This year my word, REST, settled into my life in a new way and took me down paths of discovery that could not be contained on a scrapbook page. About a month ago, I was in a small group and a word kept coming up. I asked if anyone knew about word origins and when we looked it up, some of the words I had been considering were referenced. Fast forward about 3 weeks when I was listening to a new to me podcast where they talked about choosing a word for 2019. One of the hosts mentioned a website but since I was driving, I couldn’t write it down. After a few searches, I finally came up with the right link and found this. There are some wonderful resources if you are still thinking about a new word.

Happy Monday. Have a wonderful week.
