New Page With Master List of All My Goals

This blog now has a new page with a master list of all the things I'm trying to accomplish. I kept forgetting half the list! So many things, so little time. And I need to update the list because some of the goals have changed and I have to add a few new things.  For example, my mandolin is falling apart, so until I get another one, that goal is on hold. And after doing Nanowrimo in November, I've decided I need to be writing every day in the hopes of getting my novels published, so I need to add that to the list.

As far as the Paleo diet, it's not for me. After listening to what Abraham-Hicks said about food and dieting, I've decided to try a new approach so I need to rename that goal or something. So onward and upward.

Making all the bling.

Getting Back To My Dreams and Goals

For a winter's day it was pleasant, if a bit chilly so I went to Pioneer Park and did some juggling. My juggling clubs weren't in the bag so I had to content myself with juggling balls. I'm so rusty that it was probably just as well. I worked on tricks with 3, then 4, then 5 balls. Well, technically they are beanbags.

Then for doing something new everyday I went to an Italian restaurant called Fina's Giussepi Restaurant in Victorville (near Kohls). I had lasagna which is my favorite.

I'm just trying to focus on the things that bring me joy, or at least used to bring me joy.

Right now though I think I should go to bed since it is 1:15 AM.

Progress Update: Cactus and Novel and Pottery Oh My

I hit quite a few of my GiveIt100 goals today, but I didn't have the time or inclination to record anything. I worked on my utopia by cleaning up the yard yesterday and today and planting the first cactus in my cactus garden. It had blown over in it's pot and looks a little sad but I think it will recover.
Cactus Jack's Garden gets its first cactus.

I didn't have time to plant the second one because I was off to pottery class. I went to the thrift store first and got a recorder for a dollar, thus meeting my musical exploration goal.

In pottery, I tried out new glazes, thus  doing something new today. I glazed a bowl, a pitcher, a drinking cup and some little bird cut-outs. This is for my 'do something creative every day' goal.

After being fired, both of these will be green.
I've also been busy writing for National Novel Writers Month. Here is the local group getting together to talk about the ins and outs of Nanowrimo.

About That Error Message on Give It 100

I just found something odd on the Give It 100 website. If I click on that red error message telling me I can't upload any new videos, then it takes me to the page where I CAN load videos.  Maybe I could have been uploading them this whole time. (Sad face).

Here is the newest one under 'Inspiration'.

Putting My Goals Here While the Give It 100 Site is Down

Once again there is some sort of bug preventing me from putting today's videos on Give It 100. Since I already started making them, I'll try loading them directly to my blog.

 Goal 28: I'm working on crafts for 365 days.

Goal 18: Making things I found on Pinterest.

Goal 15: Doing something new each day.

Procrastination and Pinterest

I have been crazy busy. And the last 3 times I've tried to add stuff to giveit100.com I got an error message saying they had an internal glitch with Apple and I couldn't upload videos. So tonight before bed I checked it and it is up and running again.  So I added 2 videos I made a few days ago. But it made me wonder if I should just put all my videos here either in addition to the other site or instead of the other site, because that way I can keep track of my progress better.  That site is so hard to load with my satellite connection because all the dozens of videos try to load at once. I just imagine it sucks a lot of my very limited monthly bandwidth.

The two I added tonight were Procrastination: I finally dyed my hair. I've been putting it off 4 or 5 months and Pinterest: I started making a purse from granny squares I learned to make on Pinterest.

At least I'll get to put 2 gold stars on today's calendar. Yay.
