CHALLENGES AND ADD-ONS

Day 27 of the Ultimate Blog Challenge. I am grateful that I have this platform to work from. It’s proving to be a valuable tool for me to get my thoughts organized and to get things done. I like to start off with my gratitude list.

  1. I am grateful for another sunny October day. Today I rode in the truck with the guy to this workshop and walked home. I had my exercise and 20 minutes with myself.
  2. I am grateful that I finally can finally play the C Major scale with both hands individually and together fairly smoothly.
  3. I am grateful I received my Rider Tarot deck today.

My day was busier than I planned but it was all good. I had wanted to make Ackee and salted fish rice this morning but upon reviewing the steps on the YouTube video, I rescheduled it for another day.

October 28th, Day 28 of the Ultimate Blog Challlenge. I didn’t finish yesterday’s post. It got too late and I was tired. So I am doing an add-on. It’s what I am trying to do each day, adding on more good habits till I feel it’s ENOUGH! already. What have I been adding on? Ok. First it’s writing every day. Then adding on daily piano practice. Add on 3 things I’m grateful for. Add on 3 other things from my 21 tiny habits list. Add on a daily walk. Yesterday I added on clearing and cleaning one section of my linen closet and 2 sections of my own closet. That was plenty. Funny how dust gets in closed doors. I took all the towels and put them through the air cycle on the dryer to get them dusted. I did the same for my clothes. It took a few cycles and going up and down the stairs to and from the dryer.

I’ve reached my limit! No add-ons for today. I suppose I could count going to the library as an add-on. I surely didn’t feel like it after my walk. But it was on my to-do list. I wanted the books waiting there for me. That was enough to push me forward but this is it. I am done. Tomorrow I am going to make the Ackee and salted fish rice. It made me think of Harry Belafonte singing Jamaica Farewell. It’s a good way to end. He can sing and move.

  1. I like your add-ons and I also like how you do your reorganizing in sections. I do that too! I think by picking one area, getting it done then moving on I can get more accomplished instead of looking at an entire room. You’re doing great, keep on blogging on!

  2. You’re definitely in for a treat with Ackee and salted fish rice – it’s one of my favorites! And Harry Belafonte is a legend, so you’re in good company. Did you know that Harry Belafonte actually wrote the lyrics to “Jamaica Farewell” as well as singing it? Mr. Belafonte has also won three Grammy Awards – just a little bit of trivia for you šŸ™‚

  3. Hi Lily,
    When you look back at what you accomplished yesterday you will be amazed. And to think you had the time to document it too.
    You are right the time will soon come when you will not be able to continue to add something each day and you will have to decide what are the most important ones to keep and which ones are to be scheduled or delegated.
    Kudos and please blog on!
