Today is the Eve of the May for Me Celebration!

I am compiling a list of things that I want to do in May ... but never have time to do. Here are my first 11 things. It is not one for everyday --- it's just stuff I think about, but never do! I'll share more later as I think of more things I want to do in May. 


#1 Dance to at least one song every day!  Today, I will start with this song --- Celebration!  Take 2 1/2 minutes to play the song and get up and dance if it moves you to do so!

I will spend 2 minutes each day searching for a song. Then I'll dance to the song... If I think I don't have time, I'll make my bed, load the dishwasher, and fold towels and put them away while I dance!


#2 Quilt and thread paint my Tip Top Through the Tulips Quilt - Tonya's Quilt Along from last May.
#3 Sew something simple -- like pillowcases.  I have some fabric I have set aside for them for about three years.  I am finally going to take time to make them.


#4 Practice quilting some new quilting designs on plain white fabric with blue thread.
 #5 Sip my coffee slowly and just breathe.... I may have to do this every morning, after I dance!
#6 Polish my toe nails.  I need to remove the red polish and change it to blue!
#7 Buy Chocolate Milk - my husband will love this one!

#8  Add fruit to my water and drink more water.  This is a really good thing to do.
#9 Get an old recipe from my Mom and make it.  Maybe her Cherry Coke Jello. She tops it with cool whip. I will take photos when I make it. My husband will love this too... mostly, because I am going to take time to cook a little!


#10 Make a few more fabric greeting cards.


#11 Call an old friend.  Maybe even two old friends. I think about this often, but never do it!  Yes --- it's an old rotary dial phone!

Oh Marcia: Looking forward to May for Me and make a list in my head know. I go back to work tomorrow and the first thing in my head to do is sign a theme song for that day.
