I basically stayed in bed all last week, so this week is my first in trying to get things a little back on track. I’m still exhausted all the time and coughing a lot, but I can do a bit more every few days, and that is encouraging. Thank you so much for all your encouraging notes, messages, and well wishes, I really appreciate it!
While lying in bed, I was thinking about mini skeins (as one does)- are there any mini skein yarn clubs out there? Does anyone know of any? Let me know in the comments if you do!

My Favourite Pins This Week
These cookies. Because pecans, dark chocolate and white chocolate chips together in a cookie is absolute bliss. Also, I can’t get enough cookies. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe can be found here.
A dinner recipe where everything is baked on one pan all at once? Sign me up! This is really easy and very adaptable, although I find that microwaving the sweet potatoes for 5 mins in advance gets them a little softer at the same time as all the rest of the veg. Chicken and veggies in any combo is always a hit in my house, and the kids would eat a truck if I put ranch dressing on it. Pinterest link is here, and the original recipe is here.
I made these peanut butter breakfast bites recently thinking that the kids would like them for snacks – James won’t even try them for some weird reason, but Lila loves them! Now I always have some in the fridge (and you have to keep them in the fridge, or they will totally fall apart) and they are perfect for snacking even as a grown up! I had some while writing this post, actually. Pinterest link is here, and the recipe is right here.
I have come to a bizarre realization recently – I don’t know much about what makes me happy. I can name a few things off the top of my head, but when it comes to making the most of day-to-day and loving the little things, I sometimes need to be reoriented. If you also could use a little reorienting, this was a good post. Pinterest link is here, and the original post can be read here.
This is a weekend project I’m planning on doing with the kids this weekend- rainbow heart sun catchers. Honestly, I just want to look at the window and actually see some colour, the days are so dreary and grey lately! Pinterest link is here, and the original DIY is here.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone. I hope you are staying healthy and taking care of yourselves! Make sure to find some time to do something this weekend that is just for you.
