Your weekend goals, Halloween highjinks, Flyady Christmas planning mission 15!

Coming up in today’s Newsletter! Hygge Christmas Flylady planning mission number 15, Halloween coldwater seaswimming highjinks plus a wee reminder (or should that be a kick in the bahookie…) about your weekend Routines! So let’s get straight to it!

First up… Friday’s hygge Christmas planning mission. You know the drill – make yourself a nice warm cuppa or hot cup of coffee, grab your pen and notebook or Flylady Holiday Control Journal (see the bottom of the Newsletter for a link), sit back and be inspired! Tap below to watch the video right now. Let’s hygge!

Hygge Christmas planning

Halloween has been…and gone! We had great fun at our Bluetits Chillswimmers meet on Saturday morning where we dressed up a little (coldwater seaswimming is our chance to go a little crazy EVERY weekend, ha ha!) and had some yummy treats and lots of hot tea in our thermos flasks to warm us up afterwards! It was blowing a gale on Saturday morning, sea temp was 9c/48f and the air much lower due to high winds! Brr!

And I’ve displayed a few spooky decorations in the hall and by the kitchen sink. But today is Friday 3 November – it’s over! So I’m taking down the Halloween decorations, packing them away and eating the last of the Halloween sweets. Go me! Did you or your kids carve pumpkins? What state are they in? Don’t forget about them out on your porch or front step! Take action this weekend!

A plan to simplify your week!

And talking of the weekend… A wee reminder! Just because it’s the weekend, please don’t stop your Routines. You may think “oh, I deserve a little time off”. But do you know what really happens? Saturday or Sunday slips away from us. We don’t get up and moving, we slouch around, unfocused. All those plans we had for the day don’t happen. Instead of enjoying time with friends or family, the day just drifts. And by Monday morning, the small chores are piling up and we are feeling behind. Again! LOL! So do yourself a favour. Get the things you need to get done DONE. And enjoy the rest of your weekend to the FULL!

Often we’re not doing our Routines because we haven’t made them cozy! Need a little inspiration? See my hygge Evening Routine…

And a final word about our hygge Christmas planning missions… They are straightforward and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. A little bit each day, and you’ll have a calm and collected holiday season. You can find my check-off list here (a Canva template you can modify). But you don’t need a list to start: watch today’s video, move your bahookie and start! If you miss a day or two, don’t go back. Just keep moving forward! We will have Super Missions in December…

The Flylady has a FREE workbook which you can download for free here. (Also useful for planning a wedding, Hannukah, baby shower, Ramadan, etc) I show you how to use it in this video…
