100/365 I’ll miss this store. thanks Pam for the past 8 years. on Flickr.Via Flickr:
My LYS who’s near by my house by 5 min with car is closing after 8 years.
I have taught drop spindle classes here. I have shared stories with the people about knitting, spinning. I got my weaving bug from this store. 
Something happened which I’m not going to disclose that the owner (middle) decided to close.
We are all sad but she is moving on and we all should move on. We’ll be around meeting and knit together and share stories together again.
I’m grateful to have known her and the community even though I didn’t spend time as much due to my introvert personality but I love having this store around.

098/365 always plan ahead on Flickr.
i think i’m getting better at getting my task lists done. there’s always going to be days where unexpected things happen which is fine. but I like to think that I’m on track if i make plan the day before.
I didn’t get into the habit of planning. I would say half my life things were already set up for me. What schools I went to, what to wear, what to eat, etc. But now that I’m trying to be more independent and also support my marriage/family. I need planning. I need to plan goals so I can be successful at whatever I want like knitting, spinning, photography, better at programming, or even socializing in life.
I wasn’t taught to plan and organize growing up. I’m learning this as I go.

I started the year with reading self help books about getting priorities or goals done. Then I adapted to their method to make lists. Lists are great by the way. 
I started with 9 lists, then reduced to 5 lists because 9 were too many or too big of a change for me. Then I learned that I can’t do big tasks. It has to be tasks that I know I can do that day. Not like go finish that programming task in a day. Or go bleach that bathroom and then run on treadmill that day. That would be alot of physical labor. 
Then hubby said I need to add 2 things on the lists that are fun. Those are my passion lists or hobby lists. They make the lists so much easier to tackle knowing i get to do something fun that day. it’s like the 80/20 ratio where 80% is work 20% is fun from google. I don’t know. something i heard.
There will be days that I won’t finish my tasks that day, that’s ok. I used to beat myself up for not finishing. Then i learned being a perfectionist is a bad thing. I can aim for being perfectionist but to be one is hard.
I also learned that grouping your tasks will be easier to do because they don’t require mental thinking to jump around to different contrast tasks.
Again I’m still learning about getting my goals done. But seeing the streaks on how many days I finish my daily tasks my calendar is just so happy.

097/365 we have water again!! on Flickr.Via Flickr:
our fridge was leaking back a couple months ago. we have been trying to get on the warranty because this fridge is less than 1 year old. 
Today the certified repairman came in and fixed the leak. Now I can have filtered water from the fridge. I’ve been drinking tap water for a couple of months now. Our water is treated due to where we live and I wasn’t complaining at all. because I know there are places where people can’t even get decent water.
I’m grateful to have the fridge fixed.
