Yes, the New Year is far gone. But I am the eternally optimistic person who thinks I can better myself on a weekly basis. And I couldn’t be more wrong. My first summer resolution was to spend less time on the computer. I’ve been on-line the last two and half hours!! *me with internal gut busting spasms of self loathing* But for my efforts you must check out the furniture redo pool. There are some really awesome things in the group. While exploring flickr, looking for furniture pictures to invite. I came across Bombus (Etsy & Blog & other Blog). So much inspiration in one place. So, if you are okay with spending oodles of time on the computer check it out.
Second resolution – I was going to start getting up at the crack of dawn like the good farm wife stock I come from. I got up at 8:30 this morning! *more spasms*
Third – Since reading and nearly completing The Omnivore’s Dilemma I’m going to try and fix food lower on the food chain more often. And I have sourced some farm raised beef to fill our freezer with instead of the feed lot, corn fed, antibiotic dosed beef we get from the store. Nate is also growing a jungle of tomatoes and they are loaded with fruit. We’ve only given them one shot of fertilizer so I’m feeling pretty good about that. Also, I have plans to make homemade yogurt and perhaps buy an ice cream maker to make homemade ice cream as well. The definitive word in that last sentence is plans. Me of the eternally optimistic plans and lists. *spasms*
Fourth -To finish the projects in progress! See, if I would spend less time on the computer I would get these done. More felt cuffs (some are nearly finished). My Sketchbook Project and Artist’s Exchange Print. Do something with the kitchen table. The boys and I knocked out the tile about a month ago, and I have yet to move forward with the concrete PLAN. Because I am afraid! Of failure, of the multiple trips to the hardware store it’s going to take, of failure, oh and did I mention failure. Which will lead to more self loathing! And finally to sew the Simplicity 3835 Built by Wendy shirt pattern.
I’ll start tomorrow!
