Back from CO/WY

I am home and oh, so happy to be here! I enjoyed my time in Wyoming and Colorado but Seattle really is home. My face was glued to the plane window as we landed right before sunset. As soon as we came in low enough to see the lakes and the trees, my heart was at peace. I love the green and the weather and the people here. Plus, I was excited to see my hubby again!

Now that I'm home, I'm excited to get back into a routine and accomplish some additional projects around the house. I finished reading The 4-Hour Workweek and have been tossing around some ideas on how to improve my productivity. I'm not sure that I'm called to start a business, but the book did have some useful tips that can be applied to homemakers.

My husband and I both read the older addition but have ordered the newer edition. When it comes, I'll read it and post some of the quotes/ideas that I've gleaned from the books. I'm not sure that the advice is new or revolutionary, but I've not read many organizing or time management books so the tips are new to me!

This week's to-do list:
  • Hang the carbon monoxide detector on the wall
  • Finish unpacking my suitcase
  • Write templates for several of the blog posts that I share regularly (weekly goals/Nightstand/what I'm currently reading)
  • Empty out my recipe book so that I can start organizing it
  • Write letters to the three sponsorship children I've heard from in the past week! I'm so excited to receive their letters!

That should be enough to keep me busy this week!

The best part of going away is coming home! I'm in agreement with you on that.

I live in a tiny cramped rabbit hutch of a house but I always get excited about coming home too. (even though I would love to swap out your scenery).
