April is done, gone and put away, and all that's left to do is look back at the month and reflect on how it went.
A to Z challenge:
Yup, I totally failed. I made it to day 15 and then life happened, and I totally got away from my good groove. I'm pretty annoyed with myself because I haf planned it all out, but I guess it just shows that even the best plans doesn't help you if you don't actually follow them. But, I'm not gonna be all sad about it. I'll just have to try better next year and plan even better. It's a lerning experience, and as long as I actually learned somethig from it I'm happy.
Easter was great. I went to my parents place and we celebrated my sons birthday, the kids got way to much chocolate (I still got some in the cupboard) and we had a nice easter dinner and lunch. We where super lucky, and had wonderful weather the easter days, so we got to grill in the garden, have a fire and make marshmellows, and go to the beach (though the only one crazy enough to go in the freezing water was my dad. The rest of us just soaked up some sun and relaxed on the sand while the kids played)
I started an Apartment garden. Basically, I've decided to try and grow veg indoors in a tiny apartment. What I have done is taken all the windowspace and simply used for eatable plants instead of flowers. So far I got two tomato plants, two bell peppers, and about 20 pots of salad growing. The idea came from watching a favorite program of mine, River Cottage. If you don't know the program its about this british guy who decides to leave the busy life in town and try and make it as a small holder in the british country, growing his own food, having a few animals and using what nature can give him. I like the idea, and got thinking that just because I live in a city in a small apartment, shouldn't mean I couldn't be more self sufficient. So project apartment garden started. Next up is me getting a fishing rod to see if I can catch my own meat hehe.
As some of you might have read, I did a january challenge of no sugar. You an read about it here, but bottom line is that while the first week sucked I got through it and felt so much better after. What it also showed me was that I can actually achieve my goals if I just put my head to it. So, at the beginning of april I started a diet. I've set myself a goal of getting rid of all the extra weight in 1 year. So i've been going to the gym and eatign healthy. Counting my calories, keeping from the sweets and cakes, and generally moving more. And while it sometimes is so hard, I'm feeling so much better.
So yeah, that's my April.
I hope you all had a great month.
A writer's life
This is the blog where a slightly crazy author writes rambling posts about everything and nothing. There's posts about my books, writing and social media. Posts about cooking and reviews. And there's posts about life and the challenges I have set myself in 2019.
Please notice: I do not earn money on this blog. I do not have affiliated links, and I'm not paid by any product I might mention on this blog. I'm just an artist who loves to blog. If you want to support me, buying one of my books would warm my heart. If they aren't to your taste, then support another indie artist instead.
We could all need your help.
Thank you <3
