Gosh, I love peonies! The peonies featured on my blog today are straight from our yard. <3 However, I cannot take credit for these pretties. The previous owner of our home planted two large plants in the front yard. We’ll get to my May PowerSheets shortly, but first, I want to review how April went.
Overall, I’d say I made progress this month. (Progress not perfection!) For whatever the reason, I’m still putting off bible journaling. Womp womp. I need some accountability! I planned to do a social media free weekend this weekend but ended up having lots of blog-related goals to accomplish. Yoga still hasn’t been happening much but I’m hoping a new challenge by my friend Macy at Hungryoga will help me out in that area! As far as reading goes, I haven’t had anything that sounds exciting to read so if you have recommendations, send them my way!
May Powersheets | 2017 Powersheets
If you follow me on Instagram (@c.marie.blog), you probably noticed I did my Powersheet prep in front of the TV watching Gilmore Girls. It seemed appropriate! Ha!
My word for this month is PATIENCE. Rather than choosing an “encouraging words” phrase, I decided to stick with my single word for the month. Currently, there is a lot going on in multiple areas in my life and patience is truly what I need right now!
Monthly Goals | May Powersheets
Pictured above is my monthly goals list for my May Powersheets. A lot of the same goals, with the addition of a few. I’m hoping to get my garden planted this month. Green beans, cucumbers, and okra are on my seed buying list. Additionally, I want to get a sweet pepper plant. Tyler has committed to helping me mulch our yard next weekend! I’m so excited to start getting stuff in the ground!
Weekly Goals | May Powersheets
Lots of the same goals here as well. I really like my routine right now so I’m keeping these simple because it is working well for me. Lately, I’ve been struggling to get two blog posts up per week. I just started riding a vanpool for my commute to work and back home which gives me TWO HOURS per day to work on things. The change in schedule will be great for C. Marie! I hope my content will get better and better for you! Any suggestions and ideas are always appreciated. 🙂
Daily Goals | May Powersheets
The only change I made to my daily goals is how I wrote these out however, I am going to change my strategy. My plan is to pick out my work clothes for the ENTIRE week on Sunday so I should be able to check off M-F right away. As for prepping our lunches, I’d like to start doing 2-3 days at a time rather than having to do it every night.
Do you have ideas for books I should pick up at our library? I want to read at night before bed but I’m really struggling to find anything interesting! I’m not a fan of mysteries or anything too intense. I love Nicholas Sparks, Jojo Moyes, and Jodi Picoult if that helps. Self-help and Christian books are always nice but right now I’m feeling like I need something fiction. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
Have a great week!
