Oh girls, I'd like to be able to tell you how perfectly I've changed!
I will tell you this though,
taking the time to sit down and make lists
has kept it in the forefront of my mind and has truly helped.
It has also made me aware of the areas I really need to work on.
These are the things I've been pretty good at:
I've kept up with my Gratitude Journal...
now that is life changing.
It makes you realize that truly you are 'living' a blessed life!
On the opposite side of the journal I've kept a list of things
I've done for others each day. I did this to encourage myself when I like all women feel like we don't do 'enough'.
But the crazy thing....the side of the pages where I am listing all of the great things that have happened to me or for me....
is leaps and bounds ahead of the other list. Kind of an eye opener for me.
I started out pretty good working on my memoirs,
but somehow it is painful to write and I find myself quitting.
Note to self: Others will be encouraged if I will just diligently keep at it. If I can't do it for myself, do it for others.
Several times on the road, as well as in emails,
some of you have said you've wept when you read my
or have been inspired. So truly you've kept me encouraged.
I've done really well on my Reading Lists.
Jaunts to the library,
getting new books ordered from there.
Maybe because this is one of my favorite things to do.
And I've happily been playing at home!
I had my first 'company' over last Friday night.
I figured if I waited until I got everything done,
I'd never have anybody over.
The Guitar Man planted rose bushes and hydrangeas
out beside the front walkway.
I dug around in storage and found some neat brackets I found at an antique store. Hung them and just swooped some lovely
Moda fabric over them. Tied them up with tassels...and wala...
it helped the kitchen a whole lot!
I still need to paint the shelves a raspberry pink.
(It's on the list)
The set of dishes came from an estate sale here for $35!
The glasses are flea market finds too! 45 cents a piece for the blue and a buck for the pink!

I also managed to get a better picture of the bread cupboard for ya...
And now for the things I haven't been good at:
Sewing in my sewing room each day...
