Step Into My Week 3.30

Doing these posts now that all my days run together is just plain confusing. I’m no longer writing out long to-do lists in my planner and have instead been relying on my memory to try to keep the days separated in my head. I’m doing a relatively mediocre job of that at the moment, but even with a whole lot of the same every day, I hope that you’re finding these weekly recaps somewhat interesting. This week I’m going to try to prioritize taking more pictures of what I’m up to even when I find whatever it is that I’m doing semi boring because maybe that will help to jog my memory while writing these posts. 

Monday morning, I woke up to not only pouring rain but also a water leak in my ceiling directly above my desk. This definitely wasn’t ideal after the spot where the crack is was supposed to have been fixed twice now. So, with a bucket in my chair, I opted to work from our living room this day and turned on the Today show while I planned ahead for some shoots. In the afternoon, I did a true40 class in our basement, and that night my roommate and I continued to watch Tiger King on Netflix.

Tuesday was a relatively similar set up to Monday since the roofer wasn’t able to come and check out my ceiling situation until then. I was able to get a lot done and even worked outside for a bit in the afternoon. I did another true40 workout and went for a walk before eventually showering, eating dinner, and continuing Tiger King.

Wednesday morning, I went to Trader Joe’s to stock up food to hold me over for a while and spent the rest of the day working from the dining room table as the roofers worked outside until close to 3:30. I did a true40 workout outside that afternoon before showering and getting ready for our virtual bible study in the evening. We finished that around 9:30, and I read for a bit before falling asleep. 

Thursday, I was finally able to work from my desk again, which seemed exciting. I pre-planned a few more shoots and also spent most of the afternoon working outside since the weather was beautiful. I was able to catch up with Ellison and Sophia over face time in the afternoon which was so fun and much needed. I went for a run that night before my roommate, and I finished Tiger King that night. 

Friday morning, I got up early so that I could get an hour of work in before going for a morning run. It felt really nice to be able to do this, which is certainly a perk of working from home. When I got back, I quickly showered and got back to work until a little after noon. I eventually made myself lunch and read in bed for a while. In the afternoon, I worked on some blog work from our deck, and eventually, my roommate and I made a margarita and went on a walk. Once we got back and showered, we realized we were in our pajamas before some of the kids on our street, which made us laugh. With dinner in hand, we camped out on the couch to watch the most recent episode of Little Fires Everywhere and then went to bed. 


Saturday was the most eventful day of my week and fortunately a beautiful day too. I had plans to go hiking with a friend whose family has some property right outside of Birmingham. It was so nice to get out of the house and have plans despite the fact that I wasn’t positive what the whole day would entail. We grabbed lunch to go and ended up exploring some more land and didn’t actually end up eating our lunch until around 5:00 when we headed back towards Birmingham. We came back to my house, where my roommate was watching a movie and sat on the deck for a while before eventually calling it a day. 


Sunday morning, I woke up, showered, and got back in bed to watch church online. I spent the rest of the morning cooking, baking, and doing some laundry. I tried to take a nap in the afternoon but was never able to fall asleep and read instead. I went for a walk around 3 to talk on the phone with my family and enjoy the cooler weather and didn’t end up finishing my walk until close to 6. I ordered takeout from one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Birmingham to eat for dinner and was in bed by 8:30. 

I hope y’all are hanging in there and staying healthy as most of us enter into week three of working from home!
