Mon Apr 27 -glad to be able to check back in at the quilt shop today - and spend time with my son. Our weekly hour-long rides are good for chatting! And... wonder of wonders... I found out of stock yarn at walmart that I was looking for AND a cherokee purple tomato... THE best for eating in my humble opinion :-) Picked up basil and dill too so I should be good to go except for some random pepper plants and a pear cherry if I find it :-) If I get ambitious, a couple more roma tomato plants would be good.... but I do have friends ready for me to pick their stuff this year so I should be overloaded as the summer progresses anyway.
Tue Apr 28 - HOME..... asthma kicking up with the sunshine and wind.... so I didn't push very hard today. Yardwork needed to happen but not the best option for me! I did work a little in the beds and got the plants I bought yesterday in the ground. A little extra housework to keep chipping away at the clutter.... some cooking to work with using and preparing REAL food and some quilting. A good day!
Wed Apr 29 - worked my last shift (for this period) at the library. And then home. I am working hard - at least mentally :-) - on making sure I declutter one or two things daily. I have a stash in my home and need to find an outlet for excess goods! At least I have a place where the outgoing stuff lives..... and it cannot come back! We burned a pile of brush tonight.. finally! Between work, weather and wind, we have not been able to burn for a month or more... and we really need to do more clearing.
Thu Apr 30 - Home for the morning - bills and paperwork and a bit of quilting. I really do need to share some of my projects here! And then off to see my crafty friends. I love those ladies so much - it's a bright light in my week when I can manage it.
Fri May 1 - a new month! And the launch of my 29 Gift program outlined in other posts... Another rainy day - time to get some indoor chores out of the way so I can take a long walk tomorrow!
Sat May 2... A sunny day.. perfect to tackle some of the garden work on my agenda. But I didn't do near as much as I'd hoped... I kept getting tired.. dizzy when I stood up.. a little winded. I think the pollen was getting to me! But since I did get some weeding & planting done.. I am moving forward! And a surprise date night made it all better :-) [and... a total surprise out of the blue.... him: are we doing anything next weekend? me: I don't think so, why? him: because if I have my dates right, it's mothers day and I thought we might go away for the weekend.... ] wow.....
Sun May 3 ... My last day preparing children's church packets for my old church. And now.. a new adventure while I begin hunting for a spiritual community. I am so mixed about what I need - or have to give - a community.... this will take time but I am surprisingly okay with it.
Spoke with my coach today and received encouragement enough to keep going for a bit! One of the best things I ever did for myself is find someone to help me muddle my way through :-)
AND... saw an eagle swoop down to the river for an afternoon snack.... oh my goodness.... how beautiful was that!
