It’s time again for Reading Rainbow, in which I, your hostess, link to interesting and insightful articles that I have come across over the past few weeks.
This interesting NPR article discusses how paper notebooks continue to be relevant, even in the digital age. In fact, as digital technology progresses, paper notebooks are in even higher demand, especially for creative endeavors. I really enjoyed this article, as I use a paper planner myself, The Passion Planner. I find that the ritual of opening my planner puts me in the right mindset for problem-solving and creativity. I use my planner every day, if if it is just to open it and review the past week or month. It helps keep me mindful.
Rachel of Nourishing Minimalism has been reading Life at Home in the Twenty-First Century, a book which I am hoping will soon be added to our local library, so that I can read it. In this post, she discusses one of the insights that she found within the book, namely the correlation between the amount of clutter on the front of the fridge and the amount of clutter in the home. I think I am going to do some refrigerator clearing this weekend!
And I will be tackling this tiny, but powerful, home improvement project this weekend. Allison at House of Hepworths has the step-by-step instructions to replace that ugly attic pull cord with a elegant and minimal alternative.
This is the first weekend in quite a while that I haven’t had major projects or obligations looming ahead of me, so I plan to relax and take it easy, and enjoy the novelty of doing whatever I feel like doing. I hope everyone else has an enjoyable and relaxing weekend too!
