This Day, Thursday.

I may have finally made a breakthrough with my procrastination, my laziness, and the bad habits I sunk to. Yes, I was getting sloppy about my dream. Easy to do when you wake, sit and drink coffee, scroll the phone, while watching the (depressing) morning network news. It’s easier with the Babe going to the Honor Guard duties very early. I need to have enough resolve to stick with it on the days he’ll be home.

One thing that made such a huge difference, I turned off the TV. I turn on this local radio station and listen to it instead. There are all the songs from my late high school years, and early married life. They spark so many memories! I’m enjoying the memories and the happy mood the music brings. It’s great.

I’ve assembled my second book cart, and kind of scoped out the table I’m trying out for the new sewing machine. I’m kind of on a mission now. Get those Christmas gift quilts started! I want to be sewing them by July 1. There you have it, I have publicly committed and will follow through. Schedule changes, projects, and attitude changes are all things to help people keep track of what the need to do to achieve their dreams. I got sloppy. Time to get back on track! Thanks for the help, friends!

Photo collage, above, Mira Hadlow is a new FB follow for me. I love her poetry memes, her posts, and just purchased her book. More on that after I’ve read her book. The Honor Guard letters were addressed early this morning, with coffee, on the deck. I read some of Donna Ashworth’s book of poetry from the pandemic. She is another FB follow for me. She writes so eloquently, I think most would enjoy following both of these female poets. They’re great.

Bottom row: My second book cart for my office. This one will truly have books in it! Part of the office/studio cleanup I’m working on. Middle photo, my haul from Hobby Lobby yesterday. I decided to heck with the plain, generic, white paper napkins? No, I decided to get pretty party napkins. And why not? Every day is a special day, a party for your life. The little door hanger says, “Bless Our Nest.” Goes with the bird theme I have going on for Spring. Makes me happy.

And the last photo? Grandson Gavin has another ball game tonight. The team had a bad game Tuesday. Dejected players everywhere. This is a pep talk my favorite coach gave them. Our son in law is such a good man. Good Dad. Yes, he has his days. We all do. His love of the game (which he got from his dad) shows in his interactions with these kids. He wants them to learn the right way. Just because some guys are coaches doesn’t mean they’re good ones. And I love most watching him catch for his son while warming him up to pitch. It makes my eyes sweat, to say the least. We get to see another game tonight. Good times.

Whatever you do today, celebrate it as special. You are. I am. See you tomorrow! Let’s get this done! Going back to the patio to edit my kid book now. Enjoy!
