Don’t Stress, Figure it out, Make Lists, Do..There is no Try!


It is a somewhat busy day in the office, but more busy with anticipation of what is to come later this afternoon than burdnened with early morning tasks. There are things I could be working on but I am mostly just trying to plan out my day without feeling panicked I won’t get everything done. Lately I have been feeling bothered by the empty office, false lighting and buzzing ….the random buzzing. There is something about the office environment that involves many things making buzzing noises. I can often drown them out and I am today listening to the latest ‘Cast On’.  It is relaxing me and helping me stay somewhat on task. I am also thinking about the fact it has been ages since I last recorded an episode of Muststashyo. The next episode is basically ready to go, just needs an agenda and to be recorded. I think this whirr of feelings has more to do with so much change coming in my life, but also summer and the want to just be outside.

I have a major sense of overinspiration lately that leaves me somewhat unable to accomplish anything. Every time I think about doing one thing, I think of how many more ‘one things’ I have on my list.  I have been trying to attack this by bringing to my Monday night knitting group, a project that nears completion. Then I work on it and try to finish it while I am there. I got quite a bit done on a piece of altered art I am making but realized I need tiny nails to finish the rim.  So, tonight, the hardware store is on the list.

I need to spend some real time on my big giant priority – aka THE BUSINESS PLAN. There is so much more to tell about this but I am not there yet. Rest assured, dear blog readers, I will share my exciting news once I have it tacked town, tied up and smiling. I’m nothing if not kinky right?

The Farmer’s market is finally open. I am heading there this Sunday. It is open Fridays and Sundays in this city. I can’t wait to stock up on all things fresh, green and local. I have these visions of doing so much more once I have my feet firmly planted on the ground I want them to be on. Canning, pickling, preserving…galore! A bit part of me would love to be a domestic goddess/artist and I think soon I will have some sort of taste of that…even if I will have to be on overdrive to ensure success. I can do that. I’m no stranger to that.

Lastnight I cleaned my bedroom and I have purged thus far 2.5 big blue recycling bags of clothing. It’s amazing how much clothing I have. I used to be a crazy clothes shopper. Nowadays I don’t shop too much at all, unless it is something art related. I have also found myself in a situation where I have art supplies until the end of time. I often get these ideas that require me to run to the store, buy all the materials and set everything up. But then as time goes by and I still have had no time to make things come to fruition, I put these things away, into the studio. My studio needs to really be attacked – but not with purging, with finishing. So, that’s that.

I was thinking of doing a 101 in 1001 kind of arrangement. I might try to do 101 things in 1001 days. Make a counter and such…but I think first I will just try to list things I need to do. It’s healthy.

Wow, really, I am out of things to do already? Brain block…I will add to this later, maybe..or maybe not. I know there is much more than that. Although most of these are BIG things. Photos throughout this post were used because they make me happy, and I have taken no recent and relevant photos to add to this post. And, my blog needs photos. It just does. 🙂
