It’s abnormal for me to post on a Sunday evening, but this week I had something really important to share. Alright fine, it really isn’t anything all that important, in fact it probably isn’t even anything new to you.
The reason I am posting is because I wanted to share my favourite moment of every weekend.
My early morning quite notebook time with breakfast, coffee and reflections.
“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship” – Louisa May Alcott
The notebook that is open is my Compendium of Knowledge Notebook where I write lists, quotes, facts and interesting things I read on the web. I also note three things about each day since the notebook is actually a Moleskin Planner.
Breakfast on Saturdays is almost always pancakes, but these pictures were taken from my Sunday morning time. On Sundays I have a ‘quicker to prepare’ breakfast so that I have more time to get my run in before church.
My notebooks are all color coded by topic to make located facts easier. For instance health and fitness is blue, history is grey, and geography/natural sciences is brown. The list goes on and on. I have a lot of different color markers, and a lot of different fact topics.
Sometimes I am tempted to believe that I am wasting time and should use it doing more valuable things, but then I realize I am doing something that gives me an opportunity to rest, put my thoughts together, and enjoy the sounds of my own mind.
You will notice that there is a large stack of other notebooks on the side (under Streams in the Desert, one of my favourite devotionals). I have an agenda, a creative writing/journal notebook, a devotion notebook, a list making notebook…and the list of other notebooks goes on.
Do you have a certain thing for breakfast on the weekends? Do you like writing in notebooks? If so, what do you write about?
