My resolution for this year: Drink more water.
That's it. My one big change for the year. Suzanne at ColoradoLady is starting a new Tuesday series "Tell Me Tuesday" and today she's asked the question:
WHAT IS YOUR NUMBER ONE GOAL FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS?
Number one for me is drink more water. I sometimes get to the end of the day and think, "I'm thirsty." Sure, I try to catch up on a day's worth of water in those last few hours before I head off to bed, but that's not an ideal solution. So I am looking for ways to drink water through out the day.
Oh, Suzanne, how can I have just one main goal? Maybe next week I can just write about one thing but honestly, there's another thing or two I need to do. Like exercise regularly. And .....(how can I tell you this?!)....
I am also going to limit my blogging time. I have to, you all are good - and good to me. I could get lost in this fun little adventure called blogging.
I've been entertained and inspired. Sometime last week I saw beautiful mercury glass candle holders, candles, and Epsom salt and loved that look. Thanks to Dixie at French Lique. My own version of this is a candle in a jelly jar with kosher salt - and quite REDNECK now that I see it in a picture.
|The salt looks a bit like snow and in this jar the candle seems brighter. |
This is no where near Dixie's beautiful candles, but still it gives me warmth and comfort.
In December, I won some fabric by participating in the "Occupy Your Quilt Room" event. Thank you Barbara at Cat Patches - I won second place - the Moda Little Apples Charm pack. Not only does Barbara inspire me to quilt, she also gives me fabric!
|Thank you, Barbara!|
Blogging is like treasure hunting. I discovered Cat Patches "Occupy Your Quilt Room" contest on the blog Count it *all* JOY! Now I'm getting to know Denise, inspiring quilter and blogger. The night I entered the contest something inside me said "if you win anything - share with her." So when I learned of my win, I contacted her and explained that we were in this together. So Denise and I are sharing this one. She came up with the Pattern - (Little Bluebell: Pillow Talk Swap 6) and our completion date is the first week of March 2012.
And where did I first see Count it *all* JOY? I don't remember. I guess she left a comment on a blog I read and I saw the word JOY and had to check it out.
I do know that all of this started with ColoradoLady - Suzanne has a little bit of everything on her blog. She has her vintage link party on Thursdays - see button on the right (the one with the little bird) - maybe that's what got me following all these other blogs.
Now I have to set a timer so I don't spend too much time blogging, because there's lots of stuff I want to do. I see blogging as a good thing, and I'm only spending an hour or so doing this every day. But that adds up, and I have to ask myself WHAT'S THE BEST USE OF MY TIME RIGHT NOW? So YOU tell me: How do you find the time to blog and live?
And, for the record, how did I learn about Suzanne's blog? From my friend, Patti - no link - Patti's a friend in the real world. She's into all kinds of clever, fun, inspiring stuff. One day Patti was walking with me and talking about our friend, Suzanne, and when she got home she sent me a link .... And since then I don't think I've walked with Patti one day. How horrible is that? So add exercise with a friend at least once a week to that list of things I'm going to do in the next six months.
