Save it for a rainy day

If you could quit one bad habit instantly without difficulty, which would it be?

I would quit collecting projects for a rainy day. At this moment, I would need at least one, but probably two or three, biblical rainstorms in order to complete all the projects I’ve been saving. So while the rest of y’all are building arks, I’ll be:

  1. Refinishing a chair
  2. Making a headboard
  3. Re-upholstering a set of four chairs
  4. Importing my collection of cut-out recipes to my digital cookbook
  5. Cleaning out my email folders
  6. Designing and planting flower borders around the house
  7. Writing a book
  8. Finishing a baby blanket for my cousin’s new baby
  9. Purging the Word docs on my computer
  10. Organizing five years worth of digital photographs
  11. Repainting a dresser
  12. Embroidering a Christmas stocking
  13. Making a Japan scrapbook…
  14. …then making an England scrapbook
  15. Stripping and painting a pair of antique wicker chairs
  16. Re-upholstering the cushions of the aforementioned wicker chairs
  17. Cleaning out the craft room to identify projects I’ve forgotten I’ve collected…

Gratitude Photo Day 15: Beauty

100_4426People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
~Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

I am grateful to be surrounded by people who sparkle in both darkness and light. I feel privileged to be able to immerse myself in their beauty, and hope that some of their shine rubs off on me.
