The upcoming weekend is not a stay home, wear fuzzy socks, and drink tea kind of event. Instead, we have senior night for our high school marching band kid, a wedding on Saturday afternoon, and a birthday celebration on Sunday.
And I’m working all day on Friday!
I could probably go on forever with the whole idea of creating a Hygge atmosphere. Probably blowing my budget big time over it. However, the Hygge Manifesto lists 10 items. And I’m fairly certain Hygge requires a bit more than just the proper decor.
So, moving on to the 2nd item listed in the Meik Wikig’s Hygge Manifesto….one I really like:
Presence: Be Here Now. Turn Off The Phones.
Remember when that was the norm? Being on the phone wasn’t even an option because they weren’t everywhere. It certainly takes a bit of focus to put away the phone and pay attention.
Not perfect at it though. And do I spend too much idle time on-line? Absolutely! So instead of spending the weekend focused on this blog, my plan involves being present and noticing all the wonderful details of each event.
I’ll be back to blogging in “real-time” most likely on Sunday morning as the birthday celebration happens in the late afternoon/evening.
