Tips For Planning and Productivity For People Who Are Easily Distracted

I’ve had some crazy weeks the last couple of weeks (I had 3 book releases in 3 weeks, which is not something I should have done, but time management and guessing how much time I’d need for things was a little off), but, there have been a couple of things that really helped me out… Continue reading Tips For Planning and Productivity For People Who Are Easily Distracted

How Autism (and ADD) Influences My Daily Life

So, today is World Autism Awareness Day and for that occasion I wanted to write a little about my own autism and how it influences my daily life. I’ve talked a little about it on my blog before, but today I want it to be my whole focus. This is not just about awareness, but about showing how autism influences all of us differently, my autism is not someone else’s autism.

Hobonichi 2017: My Weekly and Daily Planning

It’s been a month and a half since I moved into my Hobonichi, and I’m totally in love with itΒ still. Today I’d like to share how I use the weekly view, the daily planning, but also, what my week generally looks like, fromΒ a day-to-day base. I’m an author and I work from home. So, this is both a little look into my Hobonichi and a little bit of a look into my life.

Quick Chicken and Sweetcorn Pasta Salad

This is a recipe I’ve been meaning to make a blog post aboutΒ for a long time… Probably since I started this blog. And part of the reason that I started this blog was to share recipes like this… This is my own version of the Hairy Dieters Simple Tuna and Sweetcorn Pasta Salad (Hairy Dieters Book 1, p186), I’ve made this recipe so often that the spine of the book is broken here and the pages are all grimy. There are also a lot of sticky notes on this page with my adaptations of the recipe.

Hobonichi 2017 Flip Through Jan (1-20)

You know, you’d almost think there was such a thing as a life outside of the internet. Anyway, it’s been a few weeks since my last post and I’ve been wanting to give an update on how and if I’m using my Hobonichi (yes, I am) and especially show off a few things I’ve been doing. So, even though this isn’t a video as most more sophisticated people do, here is a flip through of my Hobonichi for about the first 3 weeks of January 2017.

Holidailies 18: Weekly Food Planning: Making Your Own Recipe Book (in a Disk Bound System)

In this day and age, most people will probably find their recipes online. I love that I can just search some ingredients and get a whole host of recipes to make with them. But when I’m in the kitchen… I don’t have a device with a screen near me, and I can’t be the only person who bookmarks a recipe, only to forget its existence… For that reason, I’ve started collecting recipes in my own “Recipe Book”, that way they’re always at hand and I can go through them as I would with other recipe books. The best part, they’ll all be recipes I’m actually interested in making! You can, of course, make this in other systems too, but my examples will use a disk bound system as I like the versatility of it.
