I wake up with Rob, according to when he has to be at work. Make coffee. Possibly fix Rob's lunch. And see him off.
The rest of my day, I may work on marketing for Yoga For Vets (an awesome non-profit I'm involved in!). I may go in to the Abilene Arts Council to volunteer my marketing services for their upcoming Gator 911 project (gonna be on CMT in the spring!).
Tuesdays and Thursdays I walk (on nice days) the three blocks through my lovely neighborhood to a yoga class at McMurry University. I walk the dog. I plan the meals. I go grocery shopping. I balance the family budget.
I research upcoming projects: how to make a container garden, decorating ideas for a guest room, where to get farm-fresh produce in Abilene, how to clean a vinyl shower curtain in the washing machine, how to teach a yoga class.
I read my pre-reading for yoga teacher training and the fourth Twilight book. I study the Bible. I crochet. I clean. I prep dinner. I welcome Rob home.
Inevitably, there is not enough time to complete all I want to each day! How is that possible? I have way too much fun doing what I do!
I'll leave you with some pics of our house (all decorated now!)
The blue bookcase my dad and I made; lots of mementos from travels, the beach, family; the flamingo that whimsically reminds me of Florida; the hat rack I made; the loveseat from a garage sale ten years ago... I love decorating with memories.
This shutter, Rob and I picked up at an antique store in New Hampshire just after buying my car (which is fixed, by the way! ...and just as delightful to drive as ever!). I use the shutter for a menu board, listing the meals we'll be having soon. This week is: Ashley's stuffed peppers and spinach salad, pizza eggrolls (if I can find egg roll wrappers - sheesh!), creamy dijon pork and steamed broccoli, and beef stroganoff with homemade bread.
With wood floors and wood cabinets, our wood table was just, well, a lot of wood (so to speak). I knew I needed to cover it and rather than invest in an expensive table runner or table cloth (you know I only like the expensive ones!) I draped layers of fabric from Ghana! Love it!
