hello, monday

“. . . and so we have to surpass ourselves every day, make every day undying. Climb our own personal Everest and do it in such a way that every step is a little bit of eternity. That’s what the future is for: to build the present with real plans made by living people.”

-Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

today marks the first Monday of this new year. rather than roll over each week with a tiresome sigh, why not treat it as a new beginning? i hereby challenge myself [and you!] to wake up with a fresh mind and say “hello, Monday!”

each week i plan to set a few goals to tackle or activities to enjoy sometime during the week. baby steps towards great things or regular chores to finish. sharing them here will help me accomplish them; you all will keep me accountable, wont you? ❤

here goes!

  1. catch up on that laundry! [eek! way behind, especially with a newborn, he’s nearly out of clothes!]
  2. continue reading Villette.
  3. update my GoodReads with a reading goal for 2016!
  4. finish toilet training  [this is a high achievement, i’ll be gracious with myself if i do not succeed]
  5. restart my weekly home foot spa treatments! bliss! i use this brand for the soak, scrub and heel treatment. goodbye sad feet, hello pretty ones!

see you next week!
