red cross – 4 apr 2017

Thrive, Project 46, and the monthly projects in my Happiness Project … so many projects! In reality, they are all facets of the same project, guiding me to finish or give up old projects and move forward on the ones that are most important to me.

April’s main theme was Cooking/Creations. At the moment, I don’t have much time to do more than keep up, but I did manage to cook fairly often.


May’s main theme is “Volunteering”. I continue to volunteer at the Red Cross and with CAPS. In addition, I volunteer for the neighborhood association and manage the building’s email list. I don’t have plans to do anything more at the moment, though I would love to start volunteering at Arabia and also volunteer more for the Red Cross. Maybe once things settle down a bit in the fall.

In addition, my plans for the month include small items from other month’s topics, such as sorting out my shorts/capris, reviewing the building e-mail list, organizing my to-do lists, going on at least one “outing” a week, organizing my iTunes, continuing with strength training, and organizing the balconies, plants, and hall.

As usual, whatever doesn’t get done gets cycled back into the plan at a later date. I’ve crossed off a number of ongoing projects in the past month, and I look forward to getting more things organized and done as well as progressing in the longer-term projects.
