waiting for inspiration

I've been waiting to come to this space when I was inspired and had something wonderful to say. I guess if I wait until that happens, I won't be here very much. life is happening...I've been busy getting back to what is our routine.
:: I took down and packed away all the Christmas decorations. {I think we'll put up less next year.}
:: I did loads of laundry. {I completed it all this week; trying not to do laundry on the weekends.}
:: I cleaned and purged rooms to re-purpose old items and make room for new treasures. {we need to do this more often.}
:: I've gone through piles, piles, and more piles of mail and lists. {I need to find one place for all my lists!}
:: I've been baking banana breads. bought a huge bag of bananas at the market for .99 and knew they would be perfect for lisa's recipe. that .99 bag of bananas went a long way- into 16 mini loaves of bread. {we've already blessed 5 others with loaves, and have tucked the rest away in the freezer for when we need just the right treat.}
:: pmr and I started a new study- The Love Dare. {the daily dares have been fun!}
:: I volunteered my time at school doing the estimation station. {love using that spiritual gift-helps!}
:: I've been knitting; just no models to take pictures of during day light. {one hat done and fingerless for boys}
:: I started the 365 project- day by day in 2009. I will be taking a photo a day and sharing it out on flickr, then scrapbooking the day in my new 365 project kit from becky higgins. {inspired by leslie, erin, and becky. it's been a fun start to 2009 using photos.}
:: I've been balancing checkbooks, paying bills, and using my favorite thin markers-flairs.
:: I've been planning for 2009. {more on this in future posts}
:: so, I guess this week my daily routine was the inspiration. {that will have to be enough.}
:: have a wonderful weekend friends!
:: and since I don't like to post without pictures, here are a couple from my week:

your voice is my inspiration. never forget the value, and your value in the simplest of thoughts or words. love the 365 too!

not only do i like to see what you have to see, but what your husband has to say, too. :)

enjoy your 365. it is a fabulous project. just remember not to put pressure on yourself to get the "perfect" photo. just capturing a brief moment of your what it is all about.
