Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.
This week went by in a flash for me, what about you? Well, mine was a breeze, because snow kept me home for most of the week. When it comes to “working from home”, I love the idea of it, but for the most part, I’m not productive. Actually, I need to create a true work space at home where I can work without distractions. Luckily, I have an extra room, but I just need to find the desire and time to actually figure it out. I’ll probably tackle that in the spring, because this cold weather is not the move to stir up productivity.
Speaking of cold weather; I’m over it. Last Friday, Memphis got hit with our normal snow and ice storm that caused everyone to buy every loaf of bread Kroger and Walmart. Afterwards, we spent the majority of the weekend hibernating in our homes watching TV and apparently eating foods with bread. However, on Monday night, Mother Nature decided to drop some more snow and ice in our life. Unfortunately, Friday snow and ice hadn’t completely melted away and this made road conditions worse. After spending two days at home, cabin fever set in and I was so stoked to finally be able to come back to work yesterday.
Luckily, I didn’t have any deadline driven projects to work on this week and spent most of my snow days watching and deleting things off my DVR. Small feats are still feats. However, that me and the city streets are finally thawing out, life can get back to normal. First thing I’m planning to do this weekend is get a blowout on my hair and then go wash my car, because it’s filthy; inside and out.
Have a lovely, warm weekend and let’s chat some more next week.
