I am away on a retreat…to a place where hopefully I can finish up two large projects.
I have been feeling overwhelmed.
I hummed and hawed about attending the retreat. I should scrapbook… I should finish up The Cousins Cookbook and get it on a flash drive and I need to make cards. I decided to go and devote one day to my cards ( Thursday night and Saturday afternoon), Friday is Cookbook Day, Saturday morning I am learning to bead with one of my best friends and Sunday I will finish up and go back home.
No scrapbooking this time around. I can work on the scrapbooks next winter and then switch over to digital scrapbooking. I love working with paper but I can see that I need to finish up some of my scrapbooks and get them scanned and then go digital!
Of course making cards helps calm the paper/photo hoarder… it makes her feel useful.
I usually get tons done at a retreat, no phone = no interruptions, I can stay up all night and take a nap during the day, I can concentrate on the tasks at hand. I can wear jammies all day long and no one says a word.
Far Guy and Chance will survive for a few days without me. They may come visit if they get too lonely. They have lots of food and hopefully they will stay out of trouble.
The retreat is near a lake, about 11 other women will be there, all ages…most are educators. I have met most of them at one time or another.
Lind Lake last year.
Last year I just went for one night and part of a day…I was still working back then…this year I am retired
