Still trying to catch up after the holidays.
I put my design services on sale in January, so that,
and trying to spend time with Darling Daughter
has kept me pretty busy.
Lunches and dinners with friends,
finally getting all the Christmas down,
and purging some more stuff takes time doesn't it?
Now here we are almost done with the first month of 2011.
Well smack my butt, and call me Judy!
That means it is almost time for Project Genesis to return.
We're going to try a very simple approach this time since we are all uber-busy, but maybe the simple approach will entice, or inspire others to join our ranks? <3
I am trying to be more goal focused this year
using my "word" for 2011
So, with that in mind I am suggesting you
choose one thing, just one, to commit to for
the remainder of this year that will enrich
your environment, and tell us your plan.
Now that allows for some grand interpretation,
so please girlfriends, surprise me with your
wit and wisdom on February 1st.
(for new gals, linky usually goes up late the day before)
Catching up on other matters
the lovely Sharon gave me a
Stylish Blogger award yesterday, so thank you
girlfriend, I am so pleased.
She says I should be disciplined about this
and I will try but you guys know
it is not always my nature.....
So 7 things to reveal about myself
(there is no point talking about my adoration
for family or ability to organize.. duh)
I love teaching someone how to do something
and then watching them take it to a whole new level.
I absolutely will not hold my tongue if
confronted with racism or bigotry. I have 0 tolerance.
I read A LOT! At least 5 books a week, unless the kids are here.
Although I love gardening
I am not always very good at it.
I wish I were brave enough to wear my hair
very short, so that I could cut most of it off and
then stop dying my hair and truly be an
Old Grey Mare.
I never expected to meet such
wonderful, amazing, generous friends here...
I was merely trying to
successively keep a diary of sorts..
After decades of trying and quitting journals within days,
I am in my fourth year here.
I eat Nutella straight from the jar with a spoon,
(my own secret stash, not the one others use yuck)
eat my ice cream in a glass with milk added,
and eat candy bars chilled....
and need to diet obviously!
Now 10 gals who some of you may not yet know,
and they may or may not want to
participate, but that's OK either way.
Tanya @ Bead and Needle - because she "rocks" Vegas
MJ @ An American Mom in Paris - because she gives me
"outright prolonged laughter" a thousand clowns
Evi @ Evi's Country Snippets - because she is a good friend to friends
of mine and can she ever create magic with a needle!
Marcia@ Child in Harmony - because this gal "mothers" all children in
ways that matter.
Linda @ From Me to Thee _ primitives and more primitives oh my!
Susanne @ Zueeuz - c'mon! Susanne with an S not a Z and Suzan with a Z not an S!
talk about kindred
Kitchu @ More Than This - because of her devotion to her family and her work
one classy lady
Not disciplined enough I suppose, I listed 7.
I adore everyone on all my lists but this time I
selected a few gals that I thought you
just might have missed meeting
because they are new or because they
are a bit "quiet" here in blog land.
If you gals choose to participate,
here are the rules as given to me:
Receive the award, say thank you, reveal 7 things about yourself,
pass it on to 10 favourite and stylish bloggers!
