things to do in spring
It really felt like spring today--so warm, sunny and lovely. My spring break was full of visiting and traveling, so I'm just now having a moment to contemplate my spring 'to do' list.
:: I want to make a quilt (actually a comforter cover) inspired by the color yellow. The flowers above are desert flowers that Ken photographed when he was in the desert with the boys a couple weekends ago. But Faith and I also saw tons of yellow flowers on the hills of the central coast on our drive yesterday. So pretty! I still haven't figured out how to fit back any sewing time into my life, but maybe I could at least start cutting a few blocks for this quilt?
:: and I still very much want to make a wrap skirt. I have a pattern and fabric. Maybe Friday when I have a day off?
:: I've fallen away from my Flylady routines. I want to figure out how to work that back into my life as well, but modified for my particular lifestyle and time constraints. I need to remember Flylady's basic messages--I should probably go back to the book and start from the beginning.
:: I'm still wanting to structure some sort of post-vegan eating plan for myself. I learned a lot on the program and I don't want to just lose it. I'm thinking about some sort of 'vegan til six' plan or 'healthy til always' or 'healthy til every other Sunday' approach.
:: somehow I want to tone up and lose a bit more weight. It seems terribly unlikely, but maybe I can fit in a little walking and trampoline jumping? I'm very good at starting things but lacking in the follow-through.
:: start saving. The home equity line is gone! So happy about that. Ken and I have been discussing savings goals. So much funner than paying off debt!
:: we are excited for Easter next weekend and looking forward to dying eggs and having an egg hunt at my parents' home.
What are you looking forward to in spring?
