an overcast day and a few sprinkles
the columbine is coming up~!
this week's report:
i managed to finish the post card that i started last week and have started working on another one.
the front of the card
the back of the card prior to addressing, postage and a birthday wish.
and today it's in the mail and on it's way to encourage some happy birthday wishes.
the 15 minute challenge group over at Kate at Life in Pieces has been just the jump start that i've been needing for a long time. it's created both an atmosphere of accountability and encouragement for me. most of the time i find it very easy to find the 15 minutes and frequently i start with the intention of just 'getting it done' and end up enjoying myself for quite a bit longer. once in a while i get to the end of the day and realize that i've not accomplished it but since it's only 15 minutes i can pick up one of my projects and put my time in and get off to bed feeling quite happy to have met the challenge once again . . . because what i do 'for myself' matters too. i'm good at keeping promises i make to others but this has helped me keep those made to myself.
it's been a very good thing~!
recent gifts include:
- folding the fresh warm laundry, especially the towels . . . i love a fresh towel~!
- sending arty birthday wishes
- beautiful postage stamps
