A little while back I posted a list here with eight things that I wanted to accomplish within the next eight months. I am very surprised by how powerful doing that was. I'm actually ticking things off of the list! And, it has only been a month and a half!!!
I've tried hard to be intentional in my life. Usually my intentions are conversations and plans that I have with myself. Stuff that I know that I'm doing but nobody else necessarily does. A groovy friend of mine suggests that when you put your intentions out "to the universe" - you will see results. I suppose that is what I did back in January when published that list for all of blog-land to see.
Perhaps shouting out intentions is more effective than whispering them?
So far: I've started learning the Red Velvet Cake, I've begun sewing up the Bai Jia Bei, we've been totally on save-mode and managed to put one whole paycheck into savings last month, baby's room is getting prepped....
And, I've been reconnecting with my garden!
Look at my happy plants:
Tulips poking out
Sedum raring to go
Rosebushes thank me for pruning them with lovely buds
The Snowdrops are a reminder that Spring is coming!
I think that Martha would be proud of my Hellebore
Foxgloves waking up
And beautiful fiddleheads ready to stretch
Still need to work on a few things such as getting back in the damn gym.
There, I said it. Actually, I shouted it. Now I really gotta do it.
