What I Did On My Blogging Break

My little break from this blog has officially ended. Yay!

To get things going, I want to share with you all what kinds of things I did while “away”.

What I Did on My Blogging Break

What I Did on My Blogging Break

  • Still kept the blog hop going.  Thanks to all of you who attend regularly. :)
  • Sorted through my closet, got rid of a bunch of stuff in the pile of junk I referred to as “mending”.
  • Started an actual mending box, with notes pinned to the pieces describing what needs to be fixed.
  • Took an inventory of my stash of toothpaste, lotion, laundry soap, etc..
  • Did some thrift shopping, didn’t get many photos. :(
  • Did some online shopping, got tons of photos. :)
  • Got a new phone.  It’s got super long battery life, I’ll share more later.
  • Downloaded all the apps under the sun.  Including Homescapes.
  • Got addicted to Homescapes.
  • Finally bought a copy of Howl’s Moving Castle on DVD.  One of the best animated movies ever.
  • Finally hung up the cute bathroom rack I bought ages ago.
  • Got foaming pump bottles from Amazon.  Just fill about 1/4 with your product of choice, fill the rest of the way with water, screw on the top, and shake.  Then you have your own diy foaming soap, shampoo, body wash, etc.
  • Went to the Arizona Matsuri, a festival for Japan.  I will post a video soon.
  • Re-read most of my old, old posts for this blog as well as the other two (ah, memories).  Sorted out ones that need updating (pretty much all of them!).
  • Did some other work for the blogs.  Updating pages, fiddling with ads, etc.
  • Reorganized my photos and video clips to make it easier to make my videos and blog posts. :)
  • Fully drafted and planned my newest craft project list.  It will be up tomorrow!
  • Sleep!

And that’s mostly it.  As mentioned I will be sharing more about some of these things in the future.

Look forward to it. :)
