My take from the auction
This is what I bought at our church auction. Its a beaded necklace and earrings. Its old since the earrings are not pierced. I may keep as is or use the beads in another way; I haven't decided yet. My towel ended up selling for 45.00 which is really good. I usually sell them for 30.00-35.00
I have spent the day on the computer tying up loose ends, doing all those little things to work again. I got my scanner working again so I am back to scanning in my grandparents letters. I am starting to write a proposal to use when I contact the Smithsonian and other groups that I might get a grant from. I do need to do some research on what is needed and so forth. It does feel good to at least put a few words down about it.
In Carolyn See's book she suggests you start creating a mailing list for when your book is published. So I started doing that so it will be ready when I need to send all of you flyer's on it. I figure to do a few names a day and before I know it I will be done and just need to add a few names here and there as I meet new people.
I am discovering a little what self care is. I pulled out my copy of Jennifer Louden's The Womans comfort book. I do a lot of the things she mentioned but I guess not consistently enough. I have decided to make a list of things I do that are self care and things that I could do and see where I am at. Its all a new discovery now. I think of more things everyday. Just today after I worked out, I stayed and spent some time in the steam room and the hot tub. It felt so good but lately I have not been giving myself the time to even do that.
It was 66 out today, that is really warm for this time of year. I love it. It makes me want to be out working on my garden. I hope tomorrow is just as nice. I left the house with a coat and was that silly. I had no idea it was so warm out. I'd like to get those primroses planted before they all die inside. Maybe I will tackle that tomorrow.
