Homework was to pick a focal point on a subject and make it stand outI love the start of a New Year! It is a clean slate just waiting for all the improvements and goals you hope to accomplish; a chance to correct all that didn't happen the year before. This year, I am really taking the new year seriously. My health is back on a somewhat even-keel, and I now actually feel like jumping back into the hobbies and activities I used to love, but have been abandoned for the past few years. The first thing I did this year was to buy a new planner. After years of trying to go paperless, and attempting to use my iPhone for a calendar and organizer, I admit I am a product of the non-technical era and it just won't work for me. It is back to my faithful Franklin Covey planner and I am so happy to have made this decision. My iPhone will remain a supplement, but my daily appointments and tasks will be recorded in the old fashioned manner - paper and pen! The photo above is the result of my plan to improve my photography and renew my love of capturing life's daily adventures. (Hence the name of my long ignored blog!) It is an online course that sends a daily email with instruction, prompts and even homework! Wow...it has been a long time since homework has entered my vocabulary. Along with taking concrete steps to enhance my photography skills, my newest passion is designing and creating jewelry! Self taught, it has been my primary hobby for the last year resulting in my love for photography falling by the wayside. Hopefully, this year will bring a better balance between the two! The last goal is to introduce daily exercise into my regime as well. So, in a nutshell, to accomplish all of this, I must get organized and use my time efficiently! I have really missed my little, old blog...and I am happy to be back. Hopefully, the daily photography class will make it easier to document a slice of my life "Only in Louisiana" and the year 2017 will be well documented!
