Fall just keeps on giving this year. I went on the M119 tunnel of trees ride last Sunday. It is a very popular and epic drive in Michigan. It was breathtaking as usual. You can see the photos on my Instagram Here . It was a fantastic day to walk on the beaches of Lake Michigan, get photos and shift my mindset to the coming of winter.
So that’s what I did this week. I have begun the deep cleaning that only fall and spring allow. I have been slowly decluttering my house one bag at a time. I picked up parts of the fairy garden and the rest will be slowly picked up and tucked in the garage this week. I have been truly living my blog’s tagline of getting things done one stitch, one block, one row at a time or for everyday use taking things one step at a time and in the best order of doing things. In a few short weeks, I feel like I have made a big impact on the house and it leaves time for other things like crafting and the dreaded exercise. I dread going to the gym but love it when I am there. I don’t get myself sometimes.
Today I am going to see friends, spend a day with my husband and hopefully find some Kraft Text at a Joann’s Fabric in a larger city. I started to dread leaving my little town and all the things I should do today because I worked all week. I have been up early and I realized that with the Flylady system plus my spin on time management and slow stitching….. I have everything done. I don’t have anything pressing on my brain like laundry or customer quilts or dirty bathroom….. I even dusted already. Say what?!?!?
Today is a day off. I am going to be listening to the football games on satellite radio, I can knit in the car and best of all I can see friends and visit at a fun gathering today. I have the time to do it. And most of all, I need to make the time to show up for my friends and family. In real life whenever possible.
Today I am a free spirit party girl. I am going to be inspired by the places I go and the people I am going to see.
Time to finish the coffee and pick out my party clothes.
