Many years, I take the time in December to clear out my computer, make a good dent in the things in my studio so I feel I have free and open space, get a handle on setting up folders for my photographs and digital layouts etc etc 2016? Not much of that done at all. There was the vacation and there was the feeling really poorly much of the time including the two days in the hospital after fainting. I've felt a lot like this falling in garage near my library. Not enough to hold myself up.
I don't like this feeling of lingering clutter and baggage from the prior year. In reality it's only a day or two "late' but it's an emotional feeling rather than one based in total reality. What I've decided to do is take some time each day to do an hour or two of that kind of work. I haven't decided if I want to make it a specific time or keep it on an ad hoc basis. I think, for me, it's better if there's a scheduled time because that feels like more of a commitment. Keep it flexible enough so that I don't feel it's a burden but scheduled so I know it's something I choose to do. I may even break the whole project down into various categories. We'll see.
I also know that I want to get back to taking daily walks.
January I've signed up to do the Month of Challenges at The Lilypad. I've enjoyed doing the 6 or 7 challenges each month in 2016 so a challenge a day is not so bad, unless I really don't like the subject of the challenge or the technique.
A friend just asked to follow me on Instagram and I see that she has really been diligent about batch making healthy lunches. There's no reason I can't do that too this year!
And it's orange time! We have navels and clementines but I hope to get some Cara Cara and blood oranges later this week or next. And on that sunny note, it's a wrap!
