Lovin’ Lately (June 19, 2020)

Hi everyone and welcome to another edition of Lovin’ Lately, in which I share all the things I’ve been loving recently. I’m joining in with Friday Favorites.

Today was a pretty busy day. It was the Friday we have day activities (every other Friday is a day off). As such, I’ve been pretty active. This is why I didn’t sit down to write until now that it’s past 10PM. With no further ado, let me start.

1. Netflix. Last Saturday, in an impulse, I decided to get a Netflix subscription again. I always get the basic one, as I, being blind, don’t need HD video or multiple screens to watch on. I wanted to see the Netflix original documentary series Diagnosis. This is really fascinating!

2. My yoga mat. My husband brought it to me last week and I finally unfolded it this evening to get some working out done. I tried several yoga apps, but haven’t found one that I like yet. Then again, I love doing yoga just the way I like it. I mean, I’m pretty inflexible and don’t have much strength in my muscles at all, but if I don’t practise, it will remain this way. I tried a beginner’s yoga class with the app Down Dog, but couldn’t follow it without being able to see the video. Still, I loved the feel of working out.

3. Journaling prompt collections. I’ve probably mentioned half a dozen times already that I love to collect books of writing prompts, particularly those geared towards journaling. This week, I got a few good ones. The Goddess Journaling Workbook by Beatrix Minerva Linden is great. I already worked on some of the prompts over the past few days, as you can see. I however also love The Year of You by Hannah Braime.

4. A stuffed pillow. I got to borrow one from another client here at the care facility earlier this week and was totally in love with it. I kept stroking its soft side as I dozed off to sleep.

5. My Fitbit. This is by no means a new product, but I just want to mention it as a way to celebrate the huge step achievement I reached this week. So far this week, I got over 56K steps. This includes a short elliptical workout this evening. My Fitbit doesn’t count the yoga workout.

What products have you been lovin’ lately?

  1. That was a really good list. We have a Netflix subscription again too and we are always glad to watch a movie without commercial interruptions. I hope you enjoy your weekend.

  2. Congratulations about your step achievement, that sounds great! 🙂
    I am just reading Diagnosis at the moment and am finding it a very interesting book. 🙂
    I am lovin’ being able to read more English ebooks lately, as I recently created an account on Kobo. My preferred way of reading is either on my Braille-Sense or PlexTalk so after I buy a DRM-protected book I remove the DRM with an app that does it so that my devices can read it. Sadly for some reason the DRM removing app has a problem with Kindle on my computer, but there are a whole lot of books on Kobo too. And I’ve also discovered for myself the journaling prompts collections and have gotten The Goddess Journaling Workbook after reading about it on your blog as it sounded really cool. I’ve done the first few prompts in my diary but since there seems to be so many prompts collections and so many cool prompts I may actually do it on my blog as well.
    I’m also very slowly getting used to my iPhone and lovin’ some things about it already.

    1. Thanks so much for commenting and complimenting me on my steps.

      Do you use Calibre to convert the eBooks? I find Kobo quite hard to use, but I love Apple books. Kindle works okay for me, the Kindle app is pretty accessible. However, I still prefer Apple books.

      I am glad you are getting used to your new iPhone.

      1. No, I don’t use Calibre but an app that is somehow based on it and is easier to use, it’s called Codex.
        The only bigger problem I have with Kobo books is that Adobe Digital Editions gets very sluggish or even freezes on them regularly and sometimes even makes NVDA freeze as well but since I don’t actually use them to read it isn’t a huge problem.
        The Kindle app (for PC at least, as this is the only one I’ve tried so far) is good indeed and sometimes I use it for reading Kindle books when I am really determined to read something but normally I don’t really have a habit of reading books on the computer.
        I haven’t played around with iBooks yet but I’m definitely going to do that in the near future and see how it works.
