Keeping a Commitment

Today I improved my day by making plans to visit my daughter who lives about 300 miles away. It's been really hard to arrange transportation. But I finally figured out a solution that will work for everyone. I even found a train that will go the whole way in one shot without having to ride a bus or switch trains along the way. I'll finally get to hold my new granddaughter. She's already a month old. I want to see her while she's still a baby and has that new baby smell.

I Refuse

My goal today is to create beauty and to be elegant no matter what. I refuse to let life defeat me, degrade me, or depress me. Visit me on Tumblr.

Today's goal is to only keep things I love.  So if my clothing is ick, throw it out or give it away to someone that loves it. If my pots and pans don't do it for me, out they go.  I'm tired of compromising and keeping everything, even things I don't like, just because I hate getting rid of something that is still useful. Even if every pan is useful, I don't need 10 of each kind, right?

Sum Math to Do

Today's goal is to remember that I am more than the sum of my parts. When I add up all of my physical parts, that doesn't begin to describe the spiritual side. I'm reading a little book called Miracle Psychic Healing that explores higher self issues. I have to remember that somewhere out there is my new home, a place we can afford, with space around it and room to do all the things that we love.  I have to believe that in just a few weeks when we have to move from this apartment there is something better out there for me. I have to surrender up the anxiety I'm feeling and accept a new thing is heading my way, that what I am seeking is seeking me.

The Ten Minute Day

I'm declaring today my ten minute day. It's a Monday which is bad enough. I have a ton of chores, none of which I want to do. Blah. So I'm going to do a 'ten minutes of work, ten minutes of play' kind of thing and repeat. So 30 minutes of each hour will be cleaning.  Ready, set, go.

I wish my house was as easy to organize as my house on Minecraft.

Just Let Go

This was such a good idea for a blog. I don't know how I lost track of it. So I gave it a make over with a new banner and a new look. I hope you like it. Today's theme is to 'Just Let Go'. I'm letting go of a lot of my clothes and costume pieces and taking them to the Goodwill.  Watching my self-portraits go by I realized I'd been wearing many of the same things for 10 years.  Some things just refuse to wear out.  So I'm biting the bullet and getting rid of everything in my dresser that doesn't fit anymore or that has been in so many photo shoots I'm sick to death of it. It's hard to let go of things I sewed myself.  But on the other hand, it motivates me to make new things that fit my current body, not some dream body I hope to get back to some day. So goodbye old friends. I hope you make someone else as happy as you made me.

Sort Old Projects

Out of site, out of mind. Or so it is with my sewing projects. So today I took a laundry bag full of knitting and crochet projects out to the patio to sort them. That was hours ago and I'm still not done, because I keep getting distracted. I did get some knitting done on the newest project, which is using geometric shapes from an afghan pattern to design something new like a hat or a vest or a scarf. That's going pretty well.

But I'm getting worn out and my head is starting to hurt and I don't want to leave those things out in the dark.
