I have lots of goals but the main ones right now are:
3. Cleaning and organizing
I have made some inroads and each day gets me closer but I start lagging also when I have no "fun" or reward so I have to include that and some "finishes" so I feel good about my progress.
I also know that I need to break down those goals into manageable steps so I have a way to gauge my progress.
I will start setting my alarm for 5:00 a.m. so I don't waste a minute and I know I get more done if I get an early start. But the weekends are going to be for fun and maintenance and each day there will be some reward at the end of the day regardless of how small.
This week I took a carload to the auction which was last night and which I did not attend. I'll see on Monday how I did. I didn't take anything too valuable in case it doesn't pay well.
But for today, I thought I would share some great things from this past week.............
I made this salad from the blog at Keeping It Cozy
She had a great post about salad making and dressings and I made this Citrus Salad with a mustard and orange juice vinaigrette. It was delicious and I would definitely make it again and again and again! LOL! It was easy and although I left out a few of her ingredients, as I don't care for raisins or poppy seeds, it was still simply scrumptious and it did go great with my goulash I had made. It will be on my Pinterest board "Food I have actually tried and liked".
I read the entire archive of Temecula Quilt Co.
In 2009 they were featured in quilt Sampler with a beautiful quilt they designed and which you can still get the pattern on their website.
I read interesting blog archives like some people read books!
The House on the Side of the Hill) was directed to this great site.............Cypress Textiles
which is hosting this VVCAL (vibrant vintage crochet along). There is a group on Ravelry for it and I think they are on week 5 or 6 now but all the instructions are out there and photos to go with. It is very detailed and wonderful tutorials for each step. I would love to participate but not right now!
