Last month, I stuck to my short term goals pretty well; I took outdoor photos on nice days, worked in my art journal, and helped in the kitchen. I'm getting better about cleaning up after we eat. That's part of cooking, I suppose.
So, new short-term goals for April:
At the end of the month, I decided to enroll in another workshop. I did this because I sold an art journal - mailed it to Norway last week. Thanks Lill ! This workshop is a little different than ones I've previously been involved with. There are 21 different artists available to me anytime from April - December. I figure I need to complete 2-3 "lessons" each month, and I'll keep pace with everyone. Then the whole workshop disappears at the end of the year. Some of the instructor's names are familiar to me, so this is a big treat. It costs $59 - a good price for so many artists. Come and join me if you're interested - it's for art journalists of all skill levels and backgrounds.

I've decided if I take baby steps in dieting, it might come easier. My plan is to lose 5 pounds this month, through exercise and watching what I eat. If it works (I should be able to lose that in water-weight, right?), I'll have the same goal next month. I really need to get outside and walk, even if it's not power-walking!
|one of my ToDos: create an activity calendar|
I really like to spend my non-work hours creatively. And not structured. But I need to get certain things done. So it will help to have them written down somewhere. A ToDo list seems like the perfect answer. This probably won't be artistic, like Aimee's "List it Tuesday" , but I'm excited to see how it works. Something on my list this week was to make an activity calendar for April. Then if I'm home, I know where I have previous obligations at work, and visa versa. Here the calendar; one thing I can cross off my list (love doing that!)
Do you have any goals for the month? What are they?
