Starting the New Year right…for me, at least!
Friday, January 1st, 2021

Today’s all about setting up my calendar. I have a spreadsheet prepared with all the work I hope to complete. I know I’ll be deleting things as I run into snags, but I always like to plan “big”. Here’s a little snippet from my annual plan.

I know, it looks very confusing. January is cram-jammed: a Montana Bounty Hunter to wrap up, another to start. I have to read Cowboy anthology stories and write my own. I hope to begin my next SEALs in Paradise story, or at the very least, have an idea what it’s going to be about! And I hope to write a little Love in Lockdown Valentines Day story. We’ll see. My weekly plan has more down-to-earth goals and considerations, like helping kids with online school, etc.

But I do love the start of a new year. Love, love, love seeing all those colors lined up, one project after another. Tomorrow, I start the real work—the writing!

I hope you all enjoy your holiday. The entire family here managed to stay up until midnight. The kids toasted with sparkling apple cider. The adults drank champagne. Today, everyone slept in late. 🙂

My dd and I were up early, starting breakfast, then we began our chores. Mid-day, I was ready to do one last run through my schedule and update my planner. I’m ready for tomorrow! What are you doing this first day of 2021?

    We’re heading up to the new house to pull wallpaper, sand walls, and cut drawer and shelf liner. Quietly mulling over what I want to manifest this year and first quarter.

    I’m setting up my new office space (or taking over part of a bedroom, just depends on how you look at it).

    Setting intentions and journaling art, journaling And yoga with the Brett Larkin free five day yoga challenge, and listening to trainings from the Woman Unleashed training, then picked up medicine from Walmart,as my mail in stuff is MIA. Spent a bunch of time at Walmart window shopping planner ideas, but decided my plain old binder is good enough. It is 8 by 10, and I think I want to go smaller…maybe….

    A. Catherine Noon! I was exhausted reading your To Do list!

    Jennifer! What fun! Okay, so maybe the moving things around part isn’t, but setting up a new space for yourself… Hope you enjoy it!

    Reina! LMAO. Yeah, we have something else in common.

    Michelle! For years, my planner was a notebook filled with graph paper. 🙂
