I don’t know if I can convey the delight, joy, peace, freedom, giggles, etc. that I feel at having a new laptop that WORKS! Really friends, I feel like the world is my oyster. I can actually watch videos! Or, get this, RECORD them. Or, if I want to, I can listen to music, type an email, and have like two other programs running at the same time (possibly even more).
The limits of old technology no longer bind my creativity. This is exciting. The possibilities are endless!
New Year’s resolutions are usually total bummers because our human nature (often) disallows the following through on commitments we make. Thus Mr. Blankenship doesn’t make New Year’s resolutions, only aspirations. I quit making them some time ago as well. However, I do like to set small attainable goals. And I get really mad when I cannot attain them.
All this to say, the aprons I promised at the beginning of the week have not prevailed. I was SO on track by Tuesday. One apron down, four to go! But then life happened. And now I’m on my way to Texas to be with my dying Grandfather.
How do you deal with failed commitments and unfulfilled goals? How do you pick yourself up again and start over? Is late really better than never? I would love to hear your thoughts.
Etsy is a wonderful website where a person can find all manner of delightfully handmade items. Technically, I have a store on Etsy. But technically, it is sort of defunct. That is to say, I have nothing for sale there. Today. So in the spirit of being EXTREMELY productive and reviving our beloved store, Kingdom Boutique, Joshua and I have decided upon a goal for this week. I’m going to make five aprons in exactly five days. Then the aprons will be for sale. I’ll be blogging about my progress, hopefully with a few pictures. I say “hopefully” because my current technological situation (computer, phone, hard drives, you name it) makes posting images of anything I do very cumbersome, even impossible. But the aprons themselves will prevail.
