Things have been a little quiet on the online front with me for no particular reason other than I’m gambling about, living my life. I’m writing, editing, designing, planning, concocting… you know how it goes. This weekend I have a client disc to deliver and some ringette to watch. I have some laundry to do (it’s like a never-ending pile!) and some organizing to do too. That time of year to purge! My problem with purging, rather my challenge, is that I start things off okay but then I get distracted and don’t always finish my initial task. I have many half-finished clean-ups and purges going on in my house and I’m bound and determined to COMPLETE some of them this weekend. Shooting real estate listings doesn’t always help the cleaning process because I see homes in their most immaculate shape which causes me to do that panic-freeze-my-house-is-a-disaster thing when I get home ;) It’s just easier to close my eyes, plug my ears, and run away la-la-la-ing. ;)
I really want to get a handle on my personal images. Not just another batch of sorting digital files and folders, but getting albums designed and printed, too. The best gift you can give someone at Christmas? Memories. Personal ones. And I have a whooooooole bunch of those.
There are some “food friday” posts that I need to publish (typing that as I hang my head in shame). I fell a little behind in cooking and experimenting the other week due to some family illness. My poor girl was down for the count for a week and a half! Let’s hope that’s it for her this season. I tried sneaking her some of my nutrient-packed juices, but the girl is hilarious. Mommy, this doesn’t have ginger, right? Right?!
Add to the list some goals, plans and concepts for photos by holly 2014 , and I think my hands are full from now until the end of the year.
Giving myself permission to do what I need to do whenever that may be, is key right now. I always feel guilty for doing certain things or for doing them “out of order”. But, is there such thing as order? I’m talking about something a little different than priorities. When will I realize that EVERYTHING I do has a purpose in both my business and in my life, no matter what others think or perceive? Everything is connected. Everything.
The final thing I’m looking forward to working on? Vegas photos. There is so much eye-candy in Vegas that I don’t really know where to begin. Culling will be a challenge, but I can do it! Setting my perfectionism on the back-burner with the images will be somewhat difficult, but I need to walk my own talk — it’s the memories and emotion that count, not always the technique, especially with LIFE, the everyday.
Time to carry on and do my thing. Hope whatever you have planned this weekend is what makes you happy!
