What Should I Do?


Today I am dreaming about things other than writing. I feel as though I don’t have very much to say lately, though I have a lot of thoughts flittering through my mind. Perhaps it is the increasingly warm days, or the lack of a real adventure recently to shake up our daily routine. Maybe the jack hammer breaking up the asphalt outside all week is finally dulling my brain. Whatever the reason, I feel very lackluster these days.

I would like to snap out of it and be a tad more productive. I have organization projects, sewing projects, ideas for art, ideas for activities to do with Simon, books to read, and recipes to try all calling my name at once. Maybe that is the key to why I am stuck? Too many tasks beckoning at once.

Tomorrow starts the month of June. My, how the year is flying by! I think I need a simple goal. Something pleasurable to me, that gives me energy by accomplishing it, and is also fairly easily attainable. I am inspired by Kate’s month of motifs. However, I do not crochet. Soooo…allow me to ask all of you: What should I do every day this month? Sketch? De-clutter something? Read a chapter or two? Do yoga? Write a haiku? Tell me your suggestions, and I will think it over as well, and I will let you know what it will be when I come back here tomorrow.

  1. Do yoga. You always say how great you feel after, and it might give you more energy to take on something else!

  2. Love Kate’s squares! This sounds like a fun project. I think I’d like to try it too. I like the idea of having something to show for it at the end. How about small square watercolors. You could cut out a bunch ahead of time and do one square a day.

  3. I always try to start the summer with a declutter. It leaves me feeling so much freer to enjoy my time at home, without being overrun by STUFF. So, my vote is to declutter a bit every day. Maybe I’ll do the same!

  4. maybe now is the time to learn to operate a jack-hammer… could happen.
