Sinister Assignment

Today’s email read: use your non-dominant hand.  I decided to see how well I could cut a fused fabric spiral with my shears design for either hand.  But in the scrap bin, I found a piece with a hand cut out of it.  I not too skillfully trimmed the fabric.  Placing it on the background and ironing it I place went well with my left hand.

What makes this sinister?  Ask a Latin scholar.

Enough: Time

I attended a small business seminar last week.  One of the presenters began his workshop with two questions: what is you biggest challenge and what is your greatest aspiration?  The most common answer to the first question was enough time.

I have been thinking about that answer all week, accompanied by the old adage of “make hay while the sun shines.”  We had exceptional warm days and bad weather is coming up the coast.  I have been cleaning and rearranging the garage.  Today I mowed the yard for hopefully the last time this year.  I have structured my 24 /7 to make good use of the weather.  Storm Sandy has added a sense of urgency.

I have not felt short of time, because I have had clear goals and a flexible focus.  I would like to bring that to more of my weeks.  What makes you satisfied with the use of your time?
