First, let’s be honest. This blog is not about an endless supply of Spare Time. Nope, no housekeeper, nanny, gardener, or sugar daddy. A mom, wife, and corporate employee means my SpareTime is usually in short supply like most of you. This blog is to share all the ways I’ve found to eek out just a bit more time. Then take that extra Spare Time and make the most of it. I don’t always get it right and likely one of the many to take my own 10-step program to convert my type A personality to any letter in the alphabet closer to the end – maybe W or Z.
I grew up in the Pacific Northwest and l’m certain it’s where I acquired my love of coffee. Realized I loved sunshine more, met my future husband, had kids and successfully changed careers twice as I moved south to Ventura County, just north of LA. I’m a glass 1/2 full type of person. I try to be eco friendly – not eco crazy. I can’t live without my coffee, a good carb – excellent pastries, bagels and rustic bread top my list, along with olive oil and cheese that make rustic bread a complete meal. I crave inspiration, organization and the search for the next project.
Hope the ideas inspire your own!
p.s. Contrary to my photo, I don’t have the fortune of living on the beach, but live close enough to make frequent visits…wetsuit required.
