As you can see, the leaves are changing colour here in Japan. But there are some other changes happening, and some I need to do.
What’s happening has a lot to do with my daughter. She’s approaching three years old, and the biggest change is her ability to speak. She’s getting more conversational all the time. She’s also getting quite defiant when she doesn’t get what she wants.
There are some things I’d like to change, though.
First, I want to change how and when I write. Any moment I have alone, I should try writing, unless I’m too tired. Mornings when I’m by myself and lunch breaks at work may be the best.
Second, I need to get more reading time in. I tend to read only on the train and sometimes during lunch breaks. I should read at night before I go to bed. I’d get much more read. Maybe I’ll make my 30 book challenge next year.
Another change is that I want to spend more time in the countryside. Trees would be nice.
And so, here are some maple trees for you.
What do you want to change in your routine?
