60 Days!

"Intelligence without ambition
is a bird without wings."
-Salvador Dali
The Halloween Party with "The Fanciful Twist" was quite a success. Many, many new friends popped in to say 'hello'...it was a festive affair...and many clever Halloween ideas and photos were available to be enjoyed. Thank you Fanciful Twist for such a well organized event!
Now, moving on to the remainder of the year. Although, it is not officially Halloween, I think the blog party jump started my organizational clock (which is not a bad thing), and I had a small panic. The end of October is a mental landmark in my head that there is only 60 days left in the year. There lies the justification for the small panic.

During the next 60 days we must all experience: the beginning of fall sports in school (basketball, swimming, and league volleyball), Thanksgiving, the biggest shopping day of the year, decorating for Christmas, multi events and parties, Christmas, traveling for the relatives and we are taking a vacation during the holidays. Whew!!! I had every right to panic...actually it should have been a full blown seizure.

I have many things to do....goals to reach....and fun to have...but, it must come with organization. Today...will be a large calendar day...determine what has to be done, when to do it, and who is going to do what. My day runner is smoking! Consider this blog a little nudge to begin the process of enjoying the last 60 Days of the year! Think it through and organize....just 60 days!

Thank you Alexa for having the little "panic" over only 60 days left in the year. Now I don't have to worry - you did it for me- ha, ha! Seriously though, you did make me think and realize I too need to ORGANIZE this week! Have a great weekend!

Hey, there! Love, love your latest art work! I do understand the work of getting the holidays rolling! I stumbled upon www.organizedchristmas.com. They have a neat 6 week plan that starts on October 26! I think I'll try it...they've also got some very nice articles. Have fun.:) Oh, do you remember my scrap shirts? I just made 133 of them, and had a booth in my first craft fair. Fun!
