August Bujo Set-up

This is the first time to post solely for my bullet journal and also the first time to film it. Though so hard to film because my camera I use was just my cell phone (oh lazy me because I didn’t charge my camera sorry for that) Anyway, let’s go for it.

My theme for August will be a beach, water, oceans and blue color.

When I was single I usually go to the beach with friends this inspired me to do this them (oh reminiscing my singlets hahaha)

My ultimate tracker (all in) & Week 31 (Aug.1-5)

This is my tracker from House chores, Social media, and Personal routines.  I still have space on the other side of the notebook so, I put the week 31 of August to be filled in.

My weekly spread: Week 32 to Week 35. Maybe next time I just make it simple and minimalist. And just have theme color for each weekly. I took me like 2 days doing this hahaha. Anyway, my next notebook will be my Essentials finally I decided to buy the real Bullet journal notebook with thick paper.

I’ll be setting up my new bujo for September. Here’s are the supplies I bought from Amazon.

First, the notebook was affordable I don’t spend money on much of the notebook and I want the paper to be thick. I love Pens (addict since I was in high school, my collection I left it to the Philippines which I give it to my sisters) I love writing colorful pens & highlighter. Oh, I just get the Crayola Super Tips for practicing calligraphy which is easy to control. I also have Tombow but so hard to control need more practice. I don’t have time to visit the stationery corner in the mall yet, to get more pens 🙂 soon, I will take pictures of the stall. In Japan, you can find anything, and usually, you won’t go home empty-handed. When you say just looking then suddenly you bought tons of pens, various stickers, mini notebooks, cute post etc. or anything.

Anyway, hopefully, I can film again my next bujo migration. (cross my finger) Please enjoy the video below how I set-up my August Spreads.

Supplies Used:
Notebook: Muji Spring Notebook
Pencil: Tombow Mono Graph 0.5 2B
Black Pens: Sakura Pigma 03, Uniball Signo RTI 0.38, Zebra Sarasa 0.5
Colored Pens: Zebra Sarasa 0.5, Neon color (Chinese brand sorry I can’t read it)

Cleaning Strategy

As you all know, we transfer to a bigger house and with garden (if your new to my blog just read my previouse post here ) As a mother, one of our dilemma will be how to manage to clean the whole house. So, as usual, we have to check the internet. So, I run over all the ideas, and opinions, especially to the stay-home mom and also for the busy mothers out there. I compiled it what is better to do clean, easy and time wisely.I don’t want to clean the house entirely in just one day. Yup, I hate cleaning. We have to prioritize first the one we always use, like sweeping and mopping the floor (esp. the kitchen) because of water drops whenever they get something and they wash their hands in the sink. De-clutter, pick-up all those unwanted stuff in the living room, dining, kitchen etc. That’s my first thing to do every morning. (De-clutter, Sweep, and Mop) Check all the sites below for your information.

8-1

This schedule above I find it useful (click the link here for more information) some items not related to our house but, still I find it useful.

More information click here. At least, in this ideas above, your can figure out which comes first and last. So, this time it will be scheduling. I incorporated my bullet journal in cleaning the house. Here’s the some ideas below for house chores schedule.

They usually use by area. (More details : click here)

So, mine just simple weekly house chores in my bujo (Jan-June 2018) I usually put on my ultimate tracker from Housechores, Social Media and Personal.

Tracking also when was the last time I change… then, my weekly/daily cleaning routine.

They all same style for except the May month. I don’t like it so, I’m back with this style. But for my July is different. (sort of).

 

Bullet Journal really helps me to do everything in place. Because you will just focus the day that you’re written on your daily routine. As a woman sometimes we sort of forgetting something and also how to compress your time from cleaning, kids, social media and also my gaming time (kids at heart) as you sit in front of the tv. You find yourself productive even though you didn’t notice it. Right? Anyway, I will do separate post again regarding my bullet journal supplies (budget friendly).

This is my everyday cleaning routine. Some heavy stuff like doing floor wax my hubby takes the charge he will do it every month, cleaning the car and storage outside.

Before I end. Hopefully, this will help you to do your everyday cleaning routine and here’s some tips from Nifty on Buzzfeed .

It was great weather not too hot but it was dry. Oh boy, my little boy has now grown up and his so slow in marathon need more practice. We saw other kids they so fast.

Every Grade they have some presentation.

My Daughter First Field Trip

This is the first trip of my daughter. It was in Kanazawa Zoo. It’s our 2nd time visited this zoo. My daughter enjoyed it a lot. Happy kids but whenever she sees insects she’s scared so much. She will scream continuously while screaming she’s crying at the same time.

img_6283_zpsrlcza1g7img_6273_zpscq0mjcak

The weather is clear and dry. Great for the field trip and their’s a lot of schools also doing field trips. A bit crowded.

We also eat our lunch box (bento) before we go home because my son will go home early because tomorrow will be their Sports Feast (Day). I will post separately for his sports day. Anyway, we go home after we ate our lunch box. the trip end 11:30pm so anyone can stay and go around but as we go home. Below, some pictures from the trip.

House Transformation

Last January as I posted on my previous blog that we moved from Osaka to Yokohama because of my husband job/work which is bigger company and compensation. Of course, my husband grabs the better opportunity and good for the family as well. Okay, Let’s go for our new house tour. But, first the house background. We bought the house not brand new. The owner bought it in the auction but not actually lives here and then he decided to sell it because it’s getting old. So, he’s not the original owner as well. Below are the pictures and after we cleaned, renovate esp the garden and arrange our things inside.

 

(Above) front of the house:  Before: As you can see lots of plants sprouting on the fence and side of the house After Pictures, New fence, and removed the plants and trees.

 

But, before putting the fence. We have to paint the house so, that it will look nice from the outside.

Below, the floor map of the House. It has 6 rooms (1 Japanese room – 1st flr. 1 master bedroom, 3 rooms with loft and 1 guest room, 2 shower room, 2 toilets & 1 bathroom) and walking closet)

map_zpsxrxblvsf

It was really hard to find a new place especially if your budget is not that big and also the locations as well. We want more a residential place, quiet and good neighborhood as well. But, we have to find schools that are a bit near to the house as well for the kids convenient.

Below pictures are before. (1st floor)

Below the after of the house (cleaned, renovate and arrange)

We still lacking some stuff to be organized but pretty much looks like that.

Below, the before pictures of the 2nd floor of the house.

Below the After pictures

What good about this house was the garden. I love it!. Having a house in Japan rarely to have a huge house especially in a big city.

We had our housewarming (May 26) with our church friends at the Yokohama Internation Bible Church.

Below are the other pictures that on progress.

Btw, I got also my own room for my Crafts, Sewing, Arts, Knitting & Crochet.  Now, we can call it a Home.

My DIY Welcome wreath and some decoration as well. Loving it!

And, sorry I was so busy these past days it’s been a long delay to post.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a great day!
