A way to keep you on track as to your writing assignments. Yes, a post-it note board, always you to see what needs to be done. IF you need to reorder, you can move the post-it notes around, putting them in the priority order you need to accomplish the task at hand. You can even color-code them by the project. Once you have finished with the task, you can tape them to a piece of paper, placing them within a notebook or in a box. It’s good to have for reference when writing either your blog or a book. It’s also great to have as a scrapbook to reflex on at the end of the year. You can share with others all your accomplishments.

I mean, I don’t know about you, but when your working on a blog, social media, Videos (YouTube), writing books, as well as other projects, it’s not hard to get overwhelmed. A good planner is essential in keeping things organized as well. I recommend a planner with a monthly, weekly, and daily section. A monthly section to log in everything you need to accomplish for the month. The weekly one to break down the project by the week. Daily I would do the morning of, you never know what might happen to screw up your schedule. Wake up with a sick kid, an unexpected friend pop in for a visit, or you might not feel good yourself. This way, you won’t have to whiteout the whole day. You can just write what is happening, so you know what to schedule for the next day. When planning your day, use block times with extra time in between projects for the unexpected thing that is bound to happen. It’s Murphy’s Law if you schedule your calendar full everything will go wrong, If you leave extra time then things go smoothly.

Blog Recommendations – Food Lovers

I chosen food for this week, in honor of Father’s Day. They say a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. I don’t know if that’s true or not, but according to my husband, he said it’s false. Anyway, we all love food, who can resist a tasty dish, bona petite.

In Dianes Kitchen She has some lovely dishes, healthy too. Who knew healthy food could look so delicious. One day I will get around to making a lot of these receipts, but for now, I am choosing the ones I have the ingredients on hand to prepare dinner.

Vintagekitchen.org, has some amazing healthy foods as well as some delicious sweets. I must say, I have never heard of Lilac Syrup until I found this website. It is one dish I will be making myself, to explore its taste. I love trying new receipts, I don’t want to eat the same thing all the time.

Almost Italian, with these scrumptious receipts, I hope you’re hungry because if your not, you will be by the time you get done looking at all the receipts on this site.

All this food is making me hungry. I will be finding something to make from one of these sites for tonight’s dinner. It looked good; I just hope I have enough chicken to make it.

Father’s Day – A Bit of History

It’s a day of honoring fatherhood. In Europe (Catholic countries), March 19 is the date of celebration, which is the same day as Saint Joseph’s Day since the Middle Ages. In the United States, Father’s Day created by Sonora Smart Dodd. It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, starting in 1910. Yep, that’s right this Sunday is Father’s Day, so remember to let your father know how much he means to you. Smile, I hope everyone has a fantastic Father’s Day.
