I'm a bit surprised that it's been so long. Except for quick check-ins at Facebook and a Saturday and/or Sunday afternoon catching up on blogs (reading other people's blogs, obviously not my own) I haven't spent much time online. I played with Gimp when I was too tired to do anything else, but it was mostly just playing. It did give me ideas, though.

I wish I could say that I was accomplishing a great deal, but, sadly, that's not the case. I have done some things, however. I'm going to try to make a series of short blog posts about TAST stitches done, art journaling (still very new to me), book reports (I don't think I write in depth enough to call them reviews), the state of my Mom Crazy Quilt, not in any particular order. I'm thinking of just talking to Dragon, which could create confusing  and/or hilarious posts. Knowing myself, however, I'll probably edit.   Still, I  want to stay away from the usual babbling I add to things--just so I get them written.

This is the schedule I hope to implement:

  • Monday: Sewing, quilting, embroidery
  • Tuesday: Writing (blog posts, letters, stories, poems, extended journaling...whatever
  • Wednesday: Have fun with paper, paint, stamps, stencils, recycled stuff, and whatever other "stuff" appeales to me
  • Thursday:  Sewing, quilting, embroidery
  • Friday: Writing (blog posts, letters, stories, poems, extended journaling...whatever
  • Saturday:  Have fun with paper, paint, stamps, stencils, recycled stuff, and whatever other "stuff" appeales to me
  • Sunday: Read blogs, watch soccer, rest

It's just a basic guideline. I have to squeeze in minimal housework, some gardening (watering every day, mostly), Saturday morning chorus (plus some practice time) that my sister and I joined yesterday. I also hope to go visit the granddaughters a few times, and I hope they visit me, too. This also doesn't mention daily reading, journal writing, and walking (or some other active movement).  Not to mention eating, interruptions good and bad, and just life in general.

I tend to be one of those people who jump into something and lose track of time. That's why I divided by days rather than apportioning so many hours a day to each big activity. I also have to keep reminding myself not to stress over any of it. I'm retired. I don't HAVE to do anything. I used to hate working at a job. That was mostly because it wasn't the kind of job I wanted. But one good thing about it was that it kept me more organized than I am now. (I'm never really organized, ::sigh::) I fit what I did to the time I had. But I didn't do nearly as much as I want to do now.
