Day One 2006

It's been a very productive new year so far. And I haven't even left the apartment. It's been cold and rainy all weekend - and will continue through Monday. But I'm getting a lot accomplished.

First, I slept in. It wasn't planned. I just didn't get up till 10:30am. The entire morning was already gone by the time I got out of bed. The good news: I wasn't anxious about it.

I organized my year's receipts to get them ready for tax preparation. Did you get that? Prepping for tax prep. Well, it's a start. They are separated by category in envelopes. I bought Quicken last year for this very purpose. I still haven't the slightest idea how to use the program.

Next I cleared piles of papers and filed everything.

I removed all the photos around my desk to make room for new ones.

I renewed my Norton Anti-virus that had expired last week.

I ordered my spf face stuff that I'm running out of.

I printed my entire email address book to cross-check with contacts in my new email address.

I've started hand writing in a journal again.

I had a lovely conversation with God.

I gave my poor guitar some loving with a nice wipedown and replaced the old, dull strings with my favorite phosphor bronze.

While looking for my guitar gear (wire cutters, strings, winders) I found my camera bag with the extra battery that I had misplaced a few months ago.

I joined Hunny in a nap.

I ate two hot meals in one day. Yummy homemade potato soup (thanks Andi) and left over wonton soup (thanks Robbie).

I took a long hot shower.

I made a few client phone calls, and scheduled an appointment with a potential new client.

I practiced the art of procrastination to the Nth degree by adding to the pile of dirty dishes in the sink and by avoiding the vacuum all in the same day. Go me!

The night is still young. I hope to play those phosphor bronzies, challenge my mind with some tangram and give God another love shout before I lay to rest for another winter night.

Much love and peace to all.

hmmm, I am struggling in this arena. organization is my worst trait. procrastination runs right along it's side. ugh. and there is so much to be done in my life, and it sits.

but, some things are moving. some things are moving.
many blessings to you in this new year, Trish. :)

There is nothing better than an unanticipated sleeping-in day, followed by potato soup and relaxation. True comfort. And what a better way to ring in the new calendar.
