I realized that it is Evaluation Time! Since I no longer work for an organization which gives me a evaluation I have decided that I will give myself one every 6 months. Evals are about the good, the bad and the ugly. I want to use this opportunity to see where I have been and where I plan on going. I had an opportunity to hear how my "excited about everything" personality, Labrador Retriever brain...I want to do, see and experience it all...doesn't always work for those around me. I think it may be time to rein it in a little...not commit, volunteer or join everything that looks exciting...for myself and those around me. I also am looking at how I spend my quilting time. It seems since I gave up the day job I am less productive...what the hey is that about. Those of you who are retired...are you getting more quilting done or less???
What I am feeling good about is I have week 1 of the Temecula BOW done!!! Isn't that Dresden plate just the cutest! And I checked my mailbox and block 2 hasn't arrived! This is what it must feel like to be on top of a project. :)
Talking with my friend Lori today...we started dreaming about how we want to approach our huge desire for new projects and completing what we have...yikes it is a daunting. What we need to do is work on Halloween and Christmas projects now...which means a re-evaluation of the summer quilting projects. What are you working on...right now??? A summer project...or a Christmas project???
I also forgot about my Monday...book and garden report...so you are getting it today. The book I am reading is "Let's Explore Diabetes With Owls" by David Sedaris. I have definitely had some laugh out loud moments...and...no way moments while reading. He is not everyone's cup of tea but I have been a long time fan of David Sedaris. As for gardening, %^&* it was supposed to hit freezing last night...come on, it's JUNE!!! All right, already...I don't want to see the 30's until December!
The Woolie slideshow is always a fun one...after all, I am partial to wool...duh! lol
