OK-it's time to develop a new routine.
I want to get a bunch of things completed around the house (like cleaning-hahaha) but I also want to be diligent about my blog. Let's start with my
One Little Word for 2013
I went back and looked at previous posts about the words I've chosen over the years...
(that was a real failure)
(this one was easy..so much to celebrate and be grateful for this past year)
My word for 2013 came to me very easily
Now that I'm fully retired, I want to work on keeping my mind sharp and my health in check.
There is a lot I can and should LEARN to accomplish these goals.
Plus, there are tons of fun things I want to learn, too.
First of all, for the first time, I am actually doing Ali Edward's on-line class entitled
One Little Word.
(read her blog post about this activity here, and know that you don't have to take the class to participate in this challenge...it's just an interesting goal)
The class goes on for the whole year and at the beginning of each month, you're given prompts to get you thinking about how your word is impacting your life and you keep a journal/photo book.
I will write more about my "bucket" learning list as time goes on.
Now, I can never start a new year without some kind of planner. Last year I used this one...
which featured my word for 2012...Celebrate
I found some really nice planners at Target this year and actually decorated 2 of them for friends for Christmas. Both of these friends are experiencing some difficult challenges in their lives right now and I wanted to give them a place to write important appointments and also a place to journal. The planners have a very sturdy outer acrylic cover and then the cover of the journal is patterned but there is no writing on it. They were a dream to alter.
Mary Ellen's planner...
(the paper label just rips off)
and my planner...
A work in progress!
This is what the planners look like inside...
Plenty of places to write
OK-off to do some cleaning and organizing and Planner cover planning...:D
Have a warm and toasty day!
