Seeing as how behind I got on my weekly posting, I figure I'll post more often when I can in an effort to get back on track. This month I have several things I want to accomplish on my journey to living full. I'll list several of the things here, then post about each one individually as they come about.
Secondly, I need to get down all of my Christmas decorations. Since I have so many decorations out, and don't want to burn myself out by taking my entire off day working at home, I have decided to do this in stages. Today my daughter and I took down our outside and family room decorations and they are now packed up and stacked away in the basement.
Now for the outside before and after pictures….
|Figured I would show the night shot, since that is when the decorations are the prettiest. :)|
Third, I like to have fun when making goals for myself. No matter what the goals are, cleaning, work related, recreational, giving to others, making a game of it puts a fun spin on it. So for the month of January I'm going to make a list of things I want to do by using each letter in the words "Happy New Year!"
Here's my list….
Hamper (determined to wash, dry, iron, put away all clothes and get back to 1 load a day)
Appliances in kitchen need a good cleaning
Prepare a meal that I can freeze for quick lunches.
Pup needs a bath
Yarn needs organizing
New recipe (daughter and I will have fun looking through cookbooks passed down from her great-grandmother--Love you, Nanny! We miss you!)
Exercise with my daughter (join her while she practices clogging).
Wear my new stylish bright orange hat I plan to crochet for myself for hunting.
Yield a nice batch of homemade dishwasher soap
Evaluate and exile the dreaded unused kitchen supplies cluttering up cabinets
Apron (finish apron that was begun 2 years ago!)
Rest (I need to force myself to go to bed earlier, so that I can get up feeling refreshed and ready to go)
It was challenging to come up with something for all these letters, but will be a lot of fun checking off this list. :) I'll keep you posted as I complete things.
Fourth, I held a contest at work for my employees. I will be working on crocheting a prize for the winner who is a big Green Bay fan. Here's the yarn…
|You'll have to visit again to see the result. ;)|
Have a great day!
