I’ve taken some time to clean up my website. It is decorated for fall now and in some semblance of order. I’d like to tweak a few more things, but I’m pretty happy with it for now. I’m working to organize all areas of my life. Being born “UNorganized”, I have to work at organization constantly. I’ve spent my life trying to organize, working on organizational skills and never feeling really good about reaching the “organized person” status. I’ve yet to give up hope though. (Actually, I’m pretty good at organizing, I’m terrible at staying organized.) In the quest to stay organized, the most important skill I’ve found is to set up good habits. Flylady is responsible for that lesson. The habit I’m working on now is to create weekly menus and to post them here every Monday.
Fall is my favorite season. The problem with living in Florida is that we only have two seasons, hot and really hot. The weather does begin to cool in the fall and the humidity becomes bearable. (Still warm, just not sweltering hot.) Today is a nice “Fall” day. I’m siting outside while I work on this post and letting my girls out. (Just to clarify so you don’t freak on me, I have three chickens, Cookie, Hazel and Atilla, the hens, which I call my girls.) It is such a “comfortable” day, but still not feeling the “fall” day I long for. So in an effort to get a taste of fall before we feel it, for the next several weeks I’ll be creating fall menus.
