With age, there is wisdom!

Every year for the last few, I’ve started my year out with a list/book of things that needed to be done.  I would get really aggravated with myself if at least half of that list didn’t get completed.

To-Do List for the outdoors

I had lists for indoors, outdoors, spring lists, summer lists, fall lists.

My list of things to do on the farm.I’m not talking about a list of 20-30 things, I’m talking about a notebook with sections for each room in the house, the yard, porch, buildings on the farm, garden, farm work, whatever needs to be done.  

Rather than beat myself up with resolutions and lists this year I’ve changed my tune!  If I’m in the mood, it’ll get done!   My new motto is:

If it gets done, hurrah, if it doesn’t it’ll be there tomorrow!


Do you know what Pinterest is?  Do you have Pinterest boards?  I would love to meet the genius that came up with this wonderful website!!  Pinterest is website for collecting and organizing things you love.  I have    boards and I use them for crafts I want to make later, ideas for decorating, wish lists, and so much more.  It doesn’t take but a few minutes to sign up for an account and it’s free.  You will have a login and password so no one can mess with your boards.  You can see other Pinterest sites that friends and other people have and you can repin things you love from their pin boards.  Check out my site and see some of the thing I truly love!!

You can find it at:                 http://pinterest.com/ritascrafting/    

I have twenty-six boards and 1626 pins as if today.  I have a 127 followers that love the same things I do and I follow 128 pinterest sites.  I have boards for quilting, crafting, gardening, books, blogs, DIY, cooking, handy tips, Country Style, hunting and outdoors, favorite music, barn quilts, crocheting, front porch living, spring cleaning, primitive decor, fall inspiration, Christmas, primitive outdoors.   I love this site and when I see something on the internet that I may want to use in the future, I pin it.  It’s fun, inspiring, it’s so organized and I think you will love it to.  Here’s a quick glimpse of what my pinterest home page looks like:
