December 2nd and the first snowfall is here. It’s my favorite time of the year. The world gets very quiet, the landscape visuals change, and I’m perfectly happy being inside.
It’s a chance to say no to outside activities, write, read, clean, and plan for the new year. So what’s the plan for 2019?
I’ve taken on some new obligations, and I’m excited about them. They will get me out into the real world and meeting new people. I’ve spent the last three years isolated from society and it’s not been fun. Surgeries, rehab, working on the house and grounds, and not doing what I enjoy. That will be different in 2019.
I’m on the board for the Frontier Homestead State Park Foundation, and will help them improve their two vendor shows with just a few simple projects.
I’m an Ambassador for the Cedar City Chamber of Commerce and will help with two projects – membership recruitment and the Women in Business Chapter.
Those, and making product for our Etsy account and the main show for my baskets and bead work will keep me plenty busy for the coming year. We’ll not be doing any more outdoor shows, and just two indoor (unless there’s another that is worth the time, travel, and expenses). Our show schedule is on our website.
In the meantime, I hope to start writing on my blog on a more regular basis. Plan is to write for one of the two blogs each week.
