Currently…A Life List


Looking out my window....I see an overcast day.

As I ponder....what the coming year holds and what I will have to let go.

What I am learning...is that I am never going to know my purpose for being. Everything that fulfills me has had a major obstacle placed in its way.
What I’m creating...ancestor ornaments. Actually, I have made 16 ornaments already. What I’m trying to figure out is exactly how to do a tutorial on making them. I had planned to make the post this past weekend, but time got away from me and my perfectionist tendencies got in the way of me. I’m afraid I’ll say something wrong and mess someone up while they’re trying to follow my directions.

What I’m reading....
The Four Agreements that was sent to me by a blogging friend. I am also reading a book in the Kindle about something called Merch by Amazon.

What I'm watching...
people eat leftovers while doing various things on their computers.

What I’m hearing...
I am hearing the air conditioner and the clicking of keyboards and a sneeze here and there.

What’s on my camera...

What I’m drinking....Diet Coke, iced tea, and water are never far from me.

What’s happening in the kitchen...
Argh! It’s a disaster area in there. The dishes are getting used way faster than I can wash them.

A quote I want to share...
“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you.” Maya Angelou

A final thought...
I hope that you all have a wonderful New Year blessed with peace, hope, love, good health, happiness, and surrounded by family.

  1. The ancestor ornaments are turning out great. Good job. Zing! Zing!

    1. Thank you. Maybe the tutorial will be okay, too. Love you, my Zing!

  2. I hope you are enjoying The Four Agreements.

    1. Thank you, Ellen, for sharing it with me. It is a very interesting book so far. Some parts I am not sure how to take, but it is very interesting.

      Have a blessed day and a very Happy New Year!

  3. Sounds like you are very busy. I haven't been getting around blogland as much as I like so I have to work on a remedy for that. I will be glad when life is back to some kind of normal around here. Life can be so tough sometimes!! Well, a lot of the time. We have to fight to find the joy. I love your quote!

    1. It is always a mad house around here when the girls are home. But, it is usually a good mad. :)

      Time management is a real obstacle for me, too. I have "have tos" and "want tos" and by the time I'm done with the have tos, there's no energy left for the want tos. What do you think will help you get to do more of the blogland stuff that you want to do?

      I agree with you. It can be very hard to find the joy in the middle of all the hard stuff.

      Thank you! I thought it was a great quote, too, and it is one of my goals for this year. What is your biggest goal for the year? What do you want from 2017?

      Have a blessed day and a very Happy New Year!
