Robbie's settling in to his new job, and we're enjoying having lunch together several times a week as his new office is only eight minutes away! As usual I made some adaptions as April progressed, but I feel pretty good about focusing on my 2016 goals (MOVE, LEARN, TEACH, SCRAP, CLEAN) throughout the month.
MOVE - I did ok on my exercise, riding the stationary bike a good bit and working out with my personal trainer four times. However, I decided that it was time to hire a lawn care service to do the routine yard maintenance.
I did get in a little adventure early in the month when Mama and I took a trip down to southeast Texas to attend the 90th birthday party of a friend from the church we attended for many years. It was a great trip with lots of visiting . . . and a FUN time helping my niece Natashia paint a poster board at midnight!
On the drive home, we stopped at the Lufkin Zoo and enjoyed a nice stroll around.
LEARN - I read nine books in April and tried out a new card-making technique (using Kiwi Lane templates).
This month I want to caught up on the materials and my pages for the FIT 2016 workshop. I'm also very slowly working through the materials in the Teach What You Do e-course.
Here's a short video of me doing a demonstration at the Demos & Devotionals Bible Journaling "crop" - this is straight from the iPhone with no editing, just a little glimpse of me teaching. (A huge thanks to class participant Rachell for taking the video!)
SCRAP - While I didn't do much personal scrapbooking, I did complete that 66-page scrapbook-for-hire project. It was a FUN project - here's a peek at some of the pages (which I snapped quickly before it was delivered, so not the best photo quality). There were lots of photos and memorabilia capturing this young man's four years of college.
During those four years, his brother and sister both were married, and I especially enjoyed creating these beautiful pages.
This month I've actually worked on two other college albums, which I completed and delivered yesterday. I'm hoping to make some progress on my own scrapbooking goals as well as catch up on my digital workflow the rest of the month. And I still need to process and share more photos from our Arizona Road Trip.
CLEAN -The project to move all the collectibles from the current Toy Room to the new one is ongoing . . . slowly since Robbie's working some extra hours as he gets things set up at the new job.
I did do a little decluttering in the laundry room and am most happy with the results in these drawers.
Did you accomplish your goals for April? What are your plans for May?
