S -Sewing - one thing I never tire of doing is creating things with my machinery. Do a little bit each and every day, even if it is only for 10-20-30 minutes or so. This is in addition to the items for customers. First project - baby blanket for a new great nephew,born in May. Next item will be finish the wedding gift for last month. Watch for photos of completed items.
T- Technology - I love to learn new things to do with technology. I have several programs I wish to learn. Spend an hour, two or three each week to until both are easy to operate. First one to master is Home and Landscape. (Maybe a remodeled kitchen is on my horizon) Next will be a tablet for designing. Then find a new one to learn. Continue to challenge my brain.
R- Research - I have a curious mind. Spend a some time each day learning about a topic that interests me. A half hour would be good. First topic - wildflowers for Iowa and how to do manage. I love the idea of small gardens at the end of each of our lanes to greet everyone who comes to our little piece of happiness.
U- Understanding. Never can have enough of that. Spend time each morning reading my daily scriptures and devotionals as I enjoy my morning brew.
C- Clean. One of my downfalls. I am not normally a neat and tidy person. I have to work very hard at overcoming my 'Flat surface disease'. Spend a few minutes each day cleaning up after myself. First place to tackle - my sewing room.
T- Teaching. I have learned lots of things as I journey through life. Blog about them, work on your writing ideas. As I put my fingers to the keys, I learn more about myself and my goals in this life. Journal daily. 10 minutes at the end of my day. Blog on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Monday- sewing project completed during the previous week or new technique learned. Wednesday - Health related. How am I doing with keeping the temple of my body? Friday - Spiritual writing.
U- Underwear, socks, towels, jeans, t-shirts and sometimes dress clothes. Dirty laundry is part of life, part of running a household. Wash, dry and Put Away the laundry once a week. No more baskets in the front room. Period. Maybe I should check into a laundry closet for us...?
R- Reading and/or relaxing. If I wish to work on the craft of writing, I need to learn about the great ones before. Spend time each day doing some of both. My goal is to strive for 20-30 minutes before I retire for the night. First book(s) Kristin Lavransdatter - the trilogy and then return them to their owner. Next book: Wedded to War.
There, now I have set up some extra STRUCTURE for my life. Follow my blogs and see how I am doing as far as keeping my goals. I figure, school has just begun in our area, so young people are getting structure back in their lives after lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are over. It's a great time for me to get some STRUCTURE back in my life.
