During the school year many projects get shoved aside, with the promise I’ll work on it in the summer. Now summer’s here and I don’t have the excuse of school. A few of my “have-to-do” tasks involve organizing. I need to organize my picture books, but I just don’t know a good way to do that. The shelf space is limited, the size of the book determines which shelf it is housed on. Another task is organizing my files of teaching material. I know that will help me be more effective next year. I will work on it . . . later. Then there is my stack of professional books, some are new to me. Some have been read, but need to be revisited. Writing more entries in my writer’s notebook is another goal I have for this summer.
Non-school tasks involve organizing recipes. I am a great one for tearing out magazine recipes I want to try. I do try them, but then they just sit on the shelf. They need to find a home in a sleeve, in a binder. Slowly, I will work through that stack. Who know’s, I may discover a new favorite recipe.
I will have to fit in time for beading. New beads have been bought but nothing has been created, yet. A beading marathon with friends could be scheduled soon.
Now that I write out my summer plans, I ask myself: Is it really a slower pace? Or just a different focus for the tasks?
