Long range planning is not one of my strong points. There are so many variables in life, so many schedules to consider, so many unexpected twists and turns. I find it hard to commit to anything too far down the road.
Yes, I do keep a calendar and religiously make notes in it. And the kids make notes in it too, because I can't be expected to remember everything for everybody. The calendar helps me create order out of chaos.
But most days I'm trying to live in the moment and get through another day. Because something unexpected always comes up - something not on the calendar.
Life with Dye Dreams is a bit different. Mona and I have to make decisions and plans months in advance. Our spring, summer and fall schedules are booked and on the calendar. We are making decisions for the winter months. Winter. Let me remind you that it's still spring in New England.
In keeping with that long range mind set we've played with some new colors for fall.
This is the fun part of long range planning. It looks like a harvest basket of yarn. The yarn is Luster Sox, colors unnamed. One of these undoubtedly will make the final cut for the fall installment of our Four Seasons Sock Club.
Flipping back to the current season I leave you with this.
