Did you know that Camp NaNoWriMo is happening? April is when this 30-day writing challenge occurs. It is quite similar to NaNoWriMo and so I decided to give weekly updates on my progress as I did back in November. Because of everything that is going on in the world, I didn’t quite get my NaNoWriMo kit filled with snacks. However, I am confident that I can continue to balance writing with life, I’ll just do so with fewer snacks. Writing is a great way to fill the time when stuck at home or whenever your creative juices are flowing. Without further ado, here is myRead More →

Life has changed vastly for most people in the last few weeks. Many are finding themselves being sent home for weeks when they are used to going out every day for work and pleasure. It can be a challenge for those who are extremely social to have to adjust to a life at home with minimal contact with the outside world. As an introvert, this transition has been pretty easy for me. I had previously spent a lot of my time at home, going out only when necessary. However, for those who are new to this and are looking for ways to fill in theRead More →

Do you love muffins? Looking for a new recipe to try? Then make these homemade carrot raisin muffins. In our home, muffins are one of our favorite items to bake. In fact, part of my weekly baking routine is to make a big batch of muffins, usually around twenty-four. These muffins are great for breakfasts, in school lunches or as snacks between meals. It’s also not uncommon to have them as dessert, we love them that much. This post may contain affiliate links.

With the arrival of each month, comes a new opportunity to set some new goals and work towards a number of things. Before we take a look at my March 2020 goals, I’d likeRead More →

February has come to an end. When it came to reading, I did a decent amount. February was another strange month, much like January. Only this time I wasn’t bombarded by snow. It was more of a lack of time and desire. Even so, I was able to put a small dent in my TBR, which is always a great feeling. I might have read more, but I also spent a lot of time on a book that I ended up abandoning partway through the month. This February 2020 reading wrap-up will cover all of the books that I read during the month and myRead More →

March ushers in the start of spring and that means that spring cleaning is on everyone’s mind. With temperatures rising, it’s time to air out our homes after the long winter, knock out the dust and refresh the home with a good cleaning. There’s a good chance that your home already has the cleaning products you need in order to perform your spring cleaning. While cleaning occurs regularly around the year, spring cleaning is a bit different. It’s not just a quick wipe down of surfaces, it’s a deep cleaning that really gets every bit of dirt from every nook and cranny. That’s why theRead More →
