Another weekend is upon us, and I certainly feel like this past week has gone by in a flash!
Things at the office are incredibly busy, which is making each day fly by. I’ve said “Wait! How is it 4:00, already?!” the past four days, and it hasn’t gotten old yet.
I have some PTO which needs to be used up before the end of the end of the year [yes! it’s true – tomorrow it will be December]. I’ve scheduled some afternoons off from the office, and today happens to be one of those afternoons. Left work at 1:00 PM and have been singing “get the weekend started” to the tune of “Get the Party Started" all day long.
Due to my busy work schedule, I’ve been feeling a little out of sorts and off my game in some of the non-work areas of my life. I’m determined to put a stop to these feelings ASAP, which brings us to Weekend Cravings, the get your act together edition! [If you don’t know Katy, the lovely lady behind the Weekend Cravings craze, check out her blog!]
This weekend I’m craving…
planning, plotting, organizing, and dreaming for the next 13 months. I’ve got a stack of tools ready to go: 2013 wall calendar and date book, brand new notebooks and list making pads, and a whole grouping of my favorite pens and pencils. Let the list-fest begin!
correspondence. Birthday greetings to share [ahem.], holiday wishes to send, two ideas to pitch, a phone call with my parents (We’re in a pretty epic game of phone tag at the moment. Mostly due to my inability to keep my phone charged and off of silent.) and a trip to the post office to send love across the country; getting it done and connecting with people I love to know and admire and enjoy working with!
writing time in a quiet room. I’ve been completing internet to-do list items each evening after work for the past couple of weeks, but I haven’t been spending much time writing down words that I’ve been meaning to write. I have dozens of drafts started – for THS posts, of course, but also a TON of HLB things I need to work on, complete and polish. I need to remove myself from all noise and distraction and see what I can let spill out my fingertips, for sure.
crafting time while watching television. Instead of being productive internet-wise while emptying my Hulu queue [a habit I am no doubt addicted to], I plan to work on a few homemade holiday gifts I’ve decided on for a few friends and family members. I hope to finish some knitting and paper projects I’ve got going on and get a start on a little something new, too.
a warm adult beverage. We picked up some Baileys from the local liquor store recently and I’m dreaming up a tasty ingredient combo to give a spin this weekend. We’ve sipped on small glasses of the Baileys on it’s own [and I must say, YUM!], but haven’t mixed it with anything yet. I see a Hazelnut Baileys Latte in my future!
What are you craving this weekend??
