Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal.

hat a week! Yesterday I went to a Gatsby Dance. My hour glass figure is more suited to 1940s/1950s costumes, so I had a dress made in that style rather than the Flapper Girl Fringe most of the other ladies were wearing (maybe I’ll post some pics later) .
I also worked in the garden and wrote in my journal once ~ go me! And now to plan for the coming week:
Outside my window...an absolutely gorgeous day. Not too hot, not too rainy.
I am thinking...about all I have to do to get ready to go to my friend’s wedding in a couple of weeks. I really hate traveling, but once I’m there, I’ll hate to leave.
I am thankful...for a roof over my head and fertile land under my feet.
In the kitchen...is yet another box with a hat in it. I need a 12 step program!
I am wearing...a red, black, and gold dress that has Lindy Hop potential.
I am creating...a birthday card for a friend.
I am going...to the Jazz in the Sculpture Gardens on Friday. Swingtopia will be there, and hopefully I can convince some of my swing dance friends to join me. Would love to don my swing threads and dance in DC!
I am wondering...why I always feel tired ~ even after seven hours of sleep.
I am reading...Pretty Little Lies by Jennifer Miller, and the latest edition of Mother Earth News.
I am hoping...to see Star Trek a second time. Hopefully in IMAX and in a sparsely populated theatre.
I am looking forward to...digging in the dirt. I know I said this last week, but I do!
I am learning…to keep my mouth shut.
Around the house...are piles of clothes. Time to do laundry!
I am pondering...how I can fit more creativity into my life.
A favorite quote for today...see above.
One of my favorite things...reading.
A few plans for the rest of the week:
1. Write in my journal at least 3 days
2. Finish up to Chapter 2 in The Nature Principle
3. Extend one of my side garden beds.
Oremus pro invicem,
What’s on your plate for this week?
