I can't believe it is June already! May flew past me that is for sure. I haven't blogged in a while. Guess where I have been? READING! Yep, I said I wasn't going to do it but I did. I drove to Moline and retrieved the 3rd book from Brook. I was in a funk and I knew it would take me out of it. Unfortuantly, now that I'm done with the book I feel the funk coming on again! AAAaaarrrgghhh!!!! But I have lots to do this week so it was good that I finished reading it today. Now I just have to wait for August 2nd to get my hands on the 4th one and hopefully read about the wedding. If you're wondering what books I'm talking about then scroll down a few post and you should come across them.
I did throw my entry into a DT hat. Below is the card I made for my entry. I think tomorrow I will be sending it out to THIS GIRL to tell her I'm her secret sister. I wish I could have taken a picture of her box because it was PACKED full of goodness and I hope she likes it all. I got my box of scrappy goodies from THIS GIRL on Saturday. IF I had a camera I would show you a picture but I don't. Not yet. Soon, I can feel it!
So my word for the year was "Practice". I've really been trying to practice balance but sometimes I really am not so good at that. I mean, I can be such an all-or-nothing kind of girl. Like today, I had a ton of stuff to do, or should have dones, but instead I read all day and took a nap. I wore my pj's all day too! But, as Nana always says "they'll still be there to do tomorrow" and that is true. So I've been practicing. Practicing balance. Practicing reading and dreaming. Practicing creating. Today I even Practiced cooking! lol I'm trying to practice that more instead of eating yucky fast food. I find that I am better at that when I have a plan of what to eat. Now I can't say I'm good and put it down on paper but if I know something needs to be thawed then I have to plan ahead. I don't think we have eaten out in a little over a week so that is good. Progress, not perfection. lol So are you trying anything new lately? Are you practicing anything in your life right now, big or small?
