What would happen if I focused my attention on one goal for a month of Fridays? I recently read somewhere,wish I could remember where, that it would be a productive idea to take your junk drawer into your television room and clean it out while watching a movie. Well, couldn’t you apply that concept to a number of daunting projects around your home, providing they were portable enough to relocate into the den?
I have many things around my house that could use some undivided attention. Photographs. Lots of them and all waiting to be put into albums. I have drawers to be organized. Bookshelves. YARN bins. And, for that matter, finishing my Rosemarkie Vest! See, you knew I would somehow make Month of Fridays about knitting, didn’t you?
Three days ago I decided that the first daunting project I would tackle would be my Rosemarkie Vest for one Month of Fridays. So, I put my “sheep” pajamas on (actually, I never changed out of them from the night before) and watched not one but two Chick Flick movies. It was a productive afternoon of knitting and I enjoyed watching Fried Green Tomatoes and Something’s Gotta Give. You know, I don’t even remember the last time I watched two movies back-to-back. I like this plan!
I grew up eating fried green tomatoes and my mother makes them for me every time I go south for a visit. A couple years ago I ordered some fried green tomatoes at the Stable House on the Biltmore properties in Asheville, North Carolina. I still think about those tomatoes.
