Happy Thursday you guys,

the weekend is very near but if you currently are a stay-at-home mom or working from home your days might look very similar. We are in our second hard lockdown in Germany which means shops, restaurants and schools are closed and will remain so until the middle of February.
We have gotten really tired of watching TV and I never thought I would say this. Our one and most occupying activity from the last lockdown has been our newborn baby but this time is different so we have been on the hunt for other things to do. Let´s dive into it.
#1 Coloring Book
I started this recently and I love it more than I have thought. The coloring book is from Johanna Basford and has the most beautiful flower patterns to color I have ever seen. I was mesmerized by it immediately and am so happy I got it. It takes quite some time to fill a whole page with color. Great to kill time. These are the pens I am using and I find them to be the best (Stabilo Pens / Edding Pens.
This has been one of our lockdown favorites from before. A 1000 piece puzzle is so hard to finish but that is the thing behind it. It costs time and distracts and is really funny if you are puzzling together. The puzzle is Jafar from the Disney Villains Limited Edition. Definitely going to get Captain Hook next.
#3 Playstation Game
Getting a Playstation game for more than one player to play the same game together was a first for us and I hesitated a little because I never play and am quite bad (my husband plays a lot of game and mostly every day so he is used how to play with the controller, I have always been more of a computer games girl) but it turned out to be awesome. Sackboy is so so cute and would also be great to play with your child. I am totally hooked right now and will be ordering Little Big Planet very soon.
#4 Daily Walks
Physical activity is very important. If you have to stay at home a lot getting on daily walks is cruel. The fresh air and moving around sets endorphines free which are very important to prevent bad moods / depressions and if the sun is shining you also get some extra vitamin D.
I have been organizing like crazy for the last few weeks. Room by room and drawer after drawer and I am happy to say that I am already through organizing every closet in the house. This leaves me feeling so happy and accomplished. Although the shops are closed I got everything I needed from amazon. Their pieces for organisation are next level.
#6 Cooking /Baking
Now is the time to try those recipes that have been sitting in your kitchen drawers for like forever. I have been making a ton of new things with our Instant Pot and also pinned some recipes I am going to try very soon. This is definitely a nice way to spend your time. If you are searching for a partner activity you can cook together.
The loungewear set I am wearing is from Monki and on super sale right now.
