100 Day Challenge – 2016

I have been thinking about this since I first posted. There were several things I was considering doing on a daily basis – meditating for 5 minutes, walking at least 5 miles, or working  in the garden or the loft.  However, the way things have been around here lately, I don’t think I can commit to doing something on a daily basis.

Then I thought  about doing something weekly – reading a book from my shelves, working an hour in the garden, spending an hour  going through saved sites/recipes/projects/blogs on my laptop, working on my job search for an hour or working for an hour on creative projects. All of these are things I need to do but none of them are really appealing at this time.

I finally decided that  for the next 100 days I’m going to focus on decluttering and getting rid of things.  I’m feeling overwhelmed by the number of things I could be working on and I’ve decided I need to make some decisions about what projects I’m really going to commit to and which I need to let go of.  Also there is just a ton of stuff that I don’t really use or need and I’m ready to let go of it.  For this 100 day challenge I will get rid of at least 100 items by December 31, 2016.

I hope you will consider playing along and leave a comment below to tell what you are going to work on for the last 100 days of 2016. I will post an update on my progress each week and you can leave a comment to let me know how your challenge is going as well.  I look forward to reading your comments and cheering you on.

Tidbit Thursday

Just another unedited, sloppy installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

Have done a bit more in the garden – got started on the iris transplanting.  I moved them  into “temporary” beds last year but didn’t get them moved into their permanent this spring as I had hoped to do.  Hopefully I’ll get the rest of them in before too long.

Also did some more weeding and covering in preparation for winter. Still have some raspberries developing. Lately there has been a young mourning dove hanging around the raspberry patch. Not sure if it is hurt or just doesn’t have much flying experience yet.

Still trying to decide on my 100 day challenge but I’m leaning towards getting rid of 100 things. I’d like to clear out my loft and get serious about working on the numerous projects I have collected supplies for. Right now it is too cluttered to be able to spread out and work on projects. Need to try to get moving on the girl’s quilt and  I’ve got tons of holiday fabric that I planned to make placemats and table runners out of. Would like  to make a dent in that as well.

Don’t forget to let me know what your challenge goal is going to be. I’d love to cheer you on as we work towards our goals.

For now though it’s time to get to bed. Hope that wherever you are and whatever you are doing you are having a great day.
