Usually this would be something I include within a post– like Friday “On My Radar”– but it’s just so good, it needed a standalone feature. I didn’t want this to get lost in the mix since it’s bringing me so much joy.
I don’t know about anyone else, but this January feels pretty bleak. We are hunkering back down with Omicron because 1/3 of our family can’t be vaccinated. And there’s just not a lot I feel comfortable doing with a baby when numbers are this high or can do quickly enough alone between naps and nursing. I keep reminding myself that January is only temporary and we’re a third of the way through already! But it’s definitely proving to be a mental challenge. (Please tell me I’m not the only one!)
Anyway. I have a post with my goals for the year coming up soon, and I’ll expand on this more, but I want to look for little silver linings to look forward to every day that are just for me. Practicing my French, sitting down to an extra delicious cup of coffee, getting into the bathtub for 20 minutes with a book. Just little things, just for me.
One little thing I’ve added into my daily routine…. WORDLE.
It’s a simple word game that’s taking over the internet. I read about it in the NY Times and have been hooked ever since. The story behind the game is really sweet and it’s been such a bright spot for me during these cold winter days. It’s a simple, but entertaining word puzzle, with a new one every day. I love that there’s only one! Unlike so many things on the internet where you could just binge and scroll for “just one more” again and again, this is a breath of fresh air!
The game is pretty straightforward, you have six tries to guess the mystery five letter word of the day. You have to guess five letter words each time, and the game will tell you if any of the letters in that word are in the mystery word. After clicking enter, if the letter is grey, it’s not in the word; if the letter is yellow, the letter is in the word but in a different spot; and if the letter is green, the letter is in the word and in the correct spot!
