Today was a day to regroup...to get back to the basics of living. The past few months have been so full of Christmas preparation that the basics have gone by the wayside. I have spent a good part of the day catching up on laundry and cleaning. I have spent this "alone time" pondering the year to come....not making resolutions, but thinking about goals.
The next few days I will map out a plan to accomplish those goals.If you are anything like me, you have lots of intentions....and not enough follow-through. I have decided that I need to try to improve my time management. I have thought about dividing my day into segments....or separate periods of time for specific tasks. What these past few months of living full time on the farm have taught me is this: if I don't set aside time to do the creative things, the necessities of life fill my day leaving me no creative outlet. So......each day I will make a list of the basics and assign them a block of time. I will also allocate a block of time to the "fluff".
Along with the basics of housekeeping, I made a batch of probiotic yogurt
and baked a loaf of honey wheat bread today.
As for "Fluff".....well, I took a little time this afternoon to play with paper and glitter. Here is the beginning of something....not sure what it will end up as, though.
