Watch a Movie

On this edition of Feel Good Friday, my suggestion is to watch a movie. It can be your absolute favourite movie, it can be a Christmas movie, it can be a new movie you haven’t seen before, any kind of movie at all.

Watching a movie will help you out so much. I heard that watching something you have already seen before, it can help relax and calm you, because you already know what is going to happen next.

Later on today, my boyfriend and I are going to watch Soul, it’s the newest Disney movie that is coming out today on Disney+. My boyfriend and I are super excited to see it. I feel like it’s going to be a tear jerker. I love those kinds of movies.

Merry Christmas to those who celebrate! I hope that whatever you celebrate, you are having a joyous time.

The item that I am going to part with today is this shirt. I haven’t seen it before, so it must be my sister’s perhaps. I am going to ask her, if she doesn’t want it, I’m going to donate it.

It’s a cool shirt, but I’m happy with everything that I own already.

It’s Christmas Eve, so we should continue to spread as much love, and joy to others. This has been a difficult year for all of us, but we can help others feel better.

Be sure to thank an essential worker, or a teacher whenever you can. Whether it is a cashier at a grocery store, or a nurse, or a receptionist at a doctor’s office. There are so many essential workers to thank. I’m sure they must be tired, and stressed out, so the least we can do is say thank you.

Thankful Thursdays #26 – December 24th, 2020

I have a lot to grateful for this time of year. I hope everyone can find gratitude in your heart. I would love to hear what everyone is grateful for.

Here is my list…

  1. One of my roommate is making steak and baked potatoes for tonight’s dinner. That’s exciting!
  2. I got to rearrange my room, slowly getting ready for the start of the 2021.
  3. By rearranging things in my room, I have more room for a dance party, that is always fun.
  4. My boyfriend has the day off work, so we are able to spend more time together.
  5. I was able to go grocery shopping, and found a lot of things on sale. That was exciting.

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I hope everyone has a magical holiday!

Today’s item I plan on getting rid of this beautiful sweater. A lot of my clothes that I have found are from my high school days, with a few shirts being the exception.

I really loved the colour, but unfortunately it is just too short in the torso, since I have grown a bit since high school.

December just flew on by!

Perhaps in your community, you can organize a community library box, and a food box. That way people can drop off books and exchange food and books. Whenever you finish a book, and you are done having it you can just place it in the community library box for someone to enjoy. People in our communities might be in need of food, so leaving out pasta, bread, cans of soup, some hot chocolate mix might go a long way in helping someone.

Here are some examples of each. Mind you it doesn’t have to be this fancy, it can be whatever you like. I think it’s a perfect way to get the community involved.

Christmas Traditions in Iceland

The one good thing about this whole pandemic is that because of the lockdown, my boyfriend and I don’t have to travel anywhere. I am not trying to sound rude, but I am trying to look at the positives of not being able to see my family over Christmas.

I will definitely be doing this with my boyfriend tomorrow. I have decided that I am going to read Christmas Sisters by Sarah Morgan.

Another fun fact is that the majority of all books that gets published in Iceland happen near Christmas time, so people can buy their books to read on Christmas Eve.

WWW Wednesdays – December 23rd, 2020

Let’s talk books! This is a post where I talk all about books by answering the following questions…

  1. What have I finished reading?
  2. What am I currently reading?
  3. What will I be reading next?

I would love to know what everyone is reading! 🙂

  1. What have I finished reading?

I really enjoyed how insightful this book, and I thought she had provided us with great advice. Another thing I like about reading her books is that she talks about it from a Canadian perspective, so she would talk about RRSPs (Registered Retirement Saving Plan) which is money we set aside for our retirement. In the U.S. it’s called a 401K. I really like that aspect about the book.

My rating: 3.5 stars out of 5

2. What am I currently reading?

I just started this book, so far it’s really good. I can’t wait to read more.

3. What will I read next?

I can’t wait to read this book tomorrow night!

I was so happy when I found this shirt again, because I haven’t seen it in awhile. Since I used to wear it in high school, it no longer fits me.

I loved that it had the different animal print over each word, and I love these words a lot.

Advent Calendar of Kindness 2020 Day 22

It’s hard to believe that it is almost Christmas! I believe that we should use this magical time to spread some love and cheer to others.

Today our challenge is to leave a positive review on someone’s restaurant, or service. Bonus points if you are writing about a small business. I know where I live we are in a lockdown, but our restaurants are still open for take out and delivery. Being able to provide a positive word, or two, about a restaurant, that will really go a long way. I know the restaurant owners would be so happy to read your review.

And if you don’t have a computer to write a positive review, recommend this restaurant to a friend, or a family member. Tell them what you ordered, and what you like to get next time.
