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 May…the month that I have been crossing my t’s and dotting my i’s with the Pantone color of Primrose Yellow… 
     

STARTING THE DAY OFF RIGHT…

My goal for the year has been to “dig in deep” and study the Book of Genesis for the entire year. 

In May, I began character studies about the different women in the book of Genesis…starting with the book Sarah, first in a series written by Orson Scott Card.

In June, I will continue character studies with the Rebekah book in this same series.
   

     

GETTING DRESSED…

My goal for the year has been to establish a 40-piece capsule wardrobe, convert to organic skincare and cosmetic products, and transform my laundry room and bedroom closet into places that I would proudly post on both my blog and Pinterest. 

In May I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

In June I will share the forty piece wardrobe that I have finally finished creating, review the app ClosetSpace, do a segment on foundation, and hopefully start working on my laundry room.
   

    

EATING BREAKFAST…

My goal for the year has been to start putting together a cookbook of Southern breakfast recipes that I can sell at my bed and breakfast. 

In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

In June, want to gather 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…

My goal for the year has been to make sure that the quantity time that I spend with our three year old is quality time also. 

    In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

      In June  I want to develop a survival game plan for the remaining timespan that my daughter is home from Ole Miss for the summer.

           

          
          
        HEADING OFF TO WORK…

        My goal for the year has been to move closer to the opening of our bed and breakfast. 

        In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

        In June,  I hope to create a command center that will eventually become my reception/reservations center for our bed and breakfast. 

          
        LASTING THROUGH LUNCH…

        My goal for the year has been to create a system of keeping healthy, portable snacks and lunches available to grab as we hurriedly run out the door each morning. 

        In May I started blogging by finishing a series of posts on on packing the perfect basket.

        In June, I want to begin a monthly series of three posts per month on packing lunches for work…The Bento Box, Fat Stanley, and Keeping Cool.

          

          

        MAKING DINNER PLANS…

        My original goal for the year was to study one different cooking technique per month. I have decided that this was much too big of a goal…instead I will look at one cooking method per quarter..starting with baking.

        In May my goal to begin a new weekly series of posts on Sunday’s called “Taking up Baking” ended up as a detour through the possibilities of pate de choux, including homemade eclairs and chicken-and-dumplings, the ultimate Southern comfort food.

        In June, I will study the importance and role of eggs in baking.

          

            

        SATISFYING THE SWEET TOOTH…

        My goal for the year has been to to start a binder with seasonal desserts to use as a reference once our business is open. 

        In May I studied pate a choux.

        In June I want to focus on red, white, and blue desserts during this patriotic season.
           

            

        CREATING A HOME…

        My goal for the year has been to create minimalistic systems and organization so that “everything can be done decently and in order.”

        In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

        In June I hope to begin to do a series on doing laundry, talk about scents in the home, and finally start to clear, organize, and decorate our laundry room.
          
          
         
        GETTING HEALTHY…

        My goal for the year has been to start exercising again and to learn to prep foods that are more appropriate for my diabetic husband. 

        In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

        In June I hope to study the best foods to meet your daily protein recommendations.
              

         CELEBRATING LIFE/SEWING A STRAIGHT SEAM…

        My goal this year has been to do some things honestly just for me…such as finish the umpteen thousand sewing projects sitting around here, start a historical biographies book club, among other things.

        In May, I honestly got sidetracked by starting my posts in a different section.

        In June I hope to get my sewing room back into working condition, write my review of Stalin’s Daughtet, and begin another selection from my book list.
          

        Now, it’s time to turn the calendar page to June and crossing my t’s and dotting my i’s with the Pantone color Hazelnut.
