February 2021 Extras

March 1, 2021

Rabbit rabbit and happy March! Here are some photos and thoughts from February that were a little thin for their own posts.

The only side effects I had from the first COVID vaccine were a minor headache, a sore arm, and a bit of tiredness. The tiredness could have been regular Friday tiredness but I still managed to stay up until midnight.

I bought a Dr. Fauci mask from Etsy.

Note to self: make sure I align my nose with the neck/necktie at the top of the mask.

I did some much needed brow maintenance after this photo.

We spent some time with Nephews A and B. Nephew B enjoys putting his little toys and action figures on the train track and giggling with anticipation as the train approaches. He’s a little twisted and I love it. RIP, Ham and Rex.

I cover the nephews’ faces because they are so adorable they would MELT your internet.

Also that is Mom’s house and that is her VALENTINE tree. Just putting that out there.

We bought a new Mickey Mouse rug from Ruggable for the living room. We had a smaller one which we are now saving for whenever we tear up the (awful, crummy, builder grade, much-hated) carpet from the downstairs and replace it with laminate or engineered hardwood.

The Mickey prints are subtle.

This was the birthday card I made for Mom. On one hand I am in love with the stenciled background and black subsentiment but on the other hand I feel like instead of becoming better at creating cards, I’m becoming better at replicating techniques I see on Youtube.

I promise you it is not as crooked as it appears in this photo.

Right?

Ollie, Murphy, and I attended a Zoom pets meetup with a bunch of people from a website that I’m a part of. It went really well, and we got to meet other dogs, cats, snails, and horses!

Full disclosure: I didn’t change my letterboard from January.

Duolingo: “streak” is 130 days, although used some gems to give me a pass one day while preserving said streak
NYT Crossword: streak is 70 days.

March goals: Get back on the yoga train, plant seedlings at the beginning and end of the month, knock out 8 more chapters of my first CAE book, and pay off the 2nd of my 3 personal credit cards. And change the letterboard.

    Glad you were able to get the vaccine and that you are feeling better after getting it 🙂 That meme about anxiety, ha! I can relate!

      That game was the WORST!

    My own letterboard (purchased exactly 1 year + 1 week ago) is still in its box, probably still enclosed by the box it was shipped to me in, for what it’s worth

      It’s all “oh I’m a creative person I can think of funny things” and then March 2020 happened.

    Love the mickey mouse rug. That’s so cute. I love that your mom has a Valentine’s Day tree too – I’d totally be someone who had a tree for every big holiday; maybe one day!

    Love the mask too!!

      Thanks! I trying to low-key bully her into keeping it up for St. Patrick’s Day but she was over it. Maybe next year!
