So hard to believe that another month has come and gone…seems like Christmas was only a week ago…oh, how quickly this year is flying by.

    Today I have been sitting here gathering ideas for future blog posts and contemplating ways to make the month of May, especially Mother’s Day, special for our family.

      In my last post, I listed some of my blogging  and life goals for May. They were…

         Some days I feel like I am writing about so many different topics that there seems to be no method at all to my madness…but my goal is to actually walk through each part of my day and share some things that I have learned that month. So looking back on April…the month that I have been crossing my t’s and dotting my i’s with the Pantone color of Niagara… 

          STARTING THE DAY OFF RIGHT...character studies about the different women in the book of Genesis…starting with this book about Sarah, first in a series written by Orson Scott Card.

            GETTING DRESSED...forty piece wardrobe that I have finally finished creating, do a segment on foundation, and hopefully start working on my laundry room.

              EATING BREAKFAST...resources to help you write and publish cookbooks, and possibly other books, in order to have a cookbook published in time for Christmas.

                DROPPING THE KIDS OFF…survival game plan for the timespan that my daughter is home from Ole Miss for the summer.

                  HEADING OFF TO WORK…command center that will eventually become my reception/reservations center for our bed and breakfast.

                    LASTING THROUGH LUNCH…start by finishing this series and then work through the subjects further down on my list…have too many draft posts still hanging around.

                      MAKING DINNER PLANS…new weekly series of posts on Sunday’s called “Taking up Baking.”

                        SATISFYING THE SWEET TOOTH...weekly “Taking Up Baking” posts.

                          CREATING A HOME...clear, organize, and decorate our laundry room.    

                            GETTING HEALTHY…the best foods to meet your daily protein recommendations.

                               CELEBRATING LIFE/SEWING A STRAIGHT SEAM…get my sewing room back into working condition, write my review of Stalin’s Daughtet, and begin another selection from my book list.

                                The month of May has been designated, by some authority that exists, as…
