March 3, 2010
After a whirlwind month of finding new tenants (not planned), being sick (not planned), winter camping and family visiting (planned) and Laurent's birthday (anticipated but not so much planned) I feel, having turned the corner into March, I can finally breathe deep again. And return, if only for a couple weeks till the next set of family arrives for a visit, to my normal at-home schedule.
But my routine isn't just going back to the way it was, it's changing and moving forward.
I don't usually pick words or themes for my months, creatively or otherwise, but I definitely have a word for this month.
Funny thing is, I had a word for last March also that I arrived at after an equally difficult February (what is it with out-of-control Februaries anyway?). The word for March 2009 was re-group.
This year I'm not just pulling things back together though, I'm re-thinking and making adjustments based on new creative directions we're moving as family.
One of our big projects is the integration of <a href ="http://www.outsideways.com/">ADVENTUREinPROGRESS</a> and FIMBY. This is an exciting undertaking with far reaching potential if we're able to carry it through to what we've dreamed.
You need not worry about content changing here. I love this little space and love the freedom to share whatever I want about my life, the Fun In My Back Yard. What I'm sharing here won't change but hopefully the audience for this blog will grow and with it the potential for my writing to support our family's endeavors.
In light of this creative undertaking and other goals we hope to accomplish I find myself in a season of re-evaluating. Although this is my word for March I'm sure this process will continue through spring and beyond.
Change takes time.
Specifically here a few things I'm re-evaluating in my life:
So that's where it's at. After a month of just trying to keep home and hearth together I'm ready this month to move forward in changes; mentally, creatively and spatially.
What changes are you making these days?
