For me one of the best things about getting away for a few weeks of vacation is getting a new prospective on my everyday life. Things that I was willing to overlook before suddenly seem unacceptable now that I'm back. Projects that I'd put on the back burner are now at the top of my "to do" list.
Here's that list:
I'm this close to being obsessed with #1. My sewing/crafting areas are complicated. I have lots of room in my Bakersfield home for sewing but no time to sew when I'm home. I have lots of time to sew (most weekends) in my Ventura home but have no room so my stuff is strewn over 135 miles of central California! I don't know about you all, but if my creative space isn't clean and organized I can't seem to function. I'm determined to do something about it - again.
My problem is that I've lacked vision before. I have absolutely no problem helping others with projects whether it be sewing or decorating, but I often feel overwhelmed with my own decorating/organizing dilemmas. This time however I do have a plan and I'll share some of what I've done to get organized once I get a little further along. I'm excited and motivated so wish me luck!
#2. I love taking pretty pictures for my blog and I have a good camera so the only thing holding me back is a little more knowledge and practice. Photography classes are definitely on my short list for the summer.
#3. Exercise. I used to be so disciplined. Not so much any more. Now that the weather has turned hot I've been swimming. Everyday after work. I love it! Don't hate me for this, but I actually hope for days over 100 degrees so our pool water stays nice and warm. I guess you could say I don't want to be uncomfortable while exercising. I do know that I sleep better when I swim.
So what's on your list for summer? Do share. They say sharing your plans is the first step to making them a reality.
