- enjoyment of the fact that I don't need to drive myself so hard in retirement
- frustration that I am not accomplishing more in a day
I had hoped to settle in to more of a routine, but other than church on Sunday, quilt group on Wednesday and a day to visit my mother scheduled in around the weather forecast, everything else gets done if and when I feel like it. My daily schedule is up early, walk with my spouse, shower, then decide what to do next. If there is freelance work in my queue, I prefer to do it in the morning when my brain is at peak efficiency.
So, how do you find and make time for the things that you want to accomplish?
- Do you use a weekly and daily routine like Flylady?
- Do you use your craft time as a reward for doing all the "stuff you gotta do today?"
- Are you a relentless list maker and do you love crossing things off the list?
I did manage to accomplish some quilting this weekend:
Those blue and cream things I showed in a previous post were for the Bushel Basket block by Bonnie Hunter, from July/August Quiltmaker Addicted to scraps column. I am glad I went with bright and deep pinks. The picture in the article used both dusty blues and dusty pinks (that's so 1980's!) which I do have in the stash, but I didn't think I would enjoy using them in this block. I did sneak in a few deep "liver-colored" reds for variety. That's another old color I need to use up.
