ESMUMA Assignment #22

This is our dollar store assignment/challenge for the upcoming meeting.

We are supposed to alter it. I can’t say that I like it even a little. It’s ugly. (Oddly some of my guy co-workers liked it!? lol.)

Several of us have been wondering what it is made of. I can confirm it is ceramic and the finish comes of very easily.

How do I know that it is ceramic? I accidently dropped it several times. OK, I admit it. The first time was an actual accident. The rest were experiments… The dang thing won’t break – trust me! I finally cut it open.

I can’t make the meeting but my assignment will!

What a sweet kid!

I was listening to the news tonight and they had a segment on this sweet 6 year-old kid.

Six-year-old Jaclyn Holdsworth, of Pickering, is on a mission to raise money to buy animals and fill a stable in third-word countries. You can view the story at CTV (Title of video – Tom Hayes on a six-year-old girl’s charitable cause)

This is her site if you’d like to support her.

What brings you joy?

Vicki posed this question on her blog. It made me think.

Then I was a little disturbed to realize I could immediately list what didn’t bring me joy.

I’d say it’s time for an attitude adjustment!

What brings me joy?

My son, my friends and family, a gentle snowfall, when the leaves change colour, a really good read and random acts of kindness.

No resolutions for me just another goal – Organize

Goal 7: Organize

Oh, it’s a biggie. This work towards the completion of Goal 4.

I have to much ‘stuff’. I’m lost in the mess. It is everywhere and I don’t want to live this way any longer. So this year it’s leaving our house.

This goal is so big it’ll have to be divided up by area, items? I’m working on a detailed plan of attack.

Right now I’m focusing on these areas:
art supplies
clothes
books
toys

How do I measure this goal? The last thing I want to do is set my self up to fail. I will need to be consistent and follow through.

I’m going to start with 15 minutes a day. I’ll keep you posted.
