10 Things That Made Me Happy in July & Some Cool Links

finished a weaving today

July was a whirlwind of a month! So many things made me happy….here’s my Top Ten plus some blog posts and articles I like to bring you inspiration.

  1. Getting back on my bipolar meds. I was really struggling but now I feel good and mentally healthy.
  2. My stepdaughter, Catalina, returning home after being in Texas with her Nana for a month.
  3. Loom knitting and weaving projects. I’m making a lacy red bordello-style lamp cover for some ambiance and red glow at night during music.
  4. On my meds, I’m more motivated to clean up. So our clean and tidy apartment made me happy.
  5. We took a trip to storage finally. Our place was very sparse and I missed my stuff in storage. We didn’t get a ton of stuff but what we did get, I was happy with.
  6. The vinyls and the body creams I grabbed from storage made me happy.
  7. I ordered some furniture from Amazon. It is so wonderful to see a cozy home developing after so many months of being underfurnished.
  8. Home cooking made me happy. We were ordering way too much takeout until July.
  9. During lockdown I started ordering groceries from Walmart. There’s been one snafu, but overall, it has been extremely convenient.
  10. The time I’ve been spending with my husband and stepdaughter watching shows and movies, playing Scrabble, or weaving, has brought me joy.
