How’s your April going so far? Weather-wise, it’s been all over the place here, and because the weather has so much impact on what we do, it’s meant a lot of adjusting as things change. But it keeps one flexible. And it’s such fun to watch the weather roll around between the mountains.

Anyway, as usual, I feel like I’m behind where I want to be, and I’m trying to stop beating myself up about it.  Here’s what’s gotten done so far:

2021 Taxes

2022 First Quarter Taxes

4th COVID vaccine

5 LOIs

One video conference w/a prospective client

Working on the house (decorating/unpacking/cleaning)

Kept up with meditation practice

Worked on contest entries

Roughing out the anthology story in my head

Failed attempt to get the car fixed

2 short story submissions

Lots of planting

Virtually attended a 5-day summit on the teaching of Pema Chödrön

Updated my Fearless ink website

In conversations with 2 different producers for 2 different radio projects

Built the Pages on Stages website

It’s not a bad list, it’s just that some items that need to be on it aren’t. So I will have to adjust for the second half of the month.
