First, an update: Last Monday, I wrote a longer than usual blog about working on my productivity skills and goals. I planned to start with getting more sleep to up my energy. My plan was to make a hard and fast bedtime. Well, that was in major conflict with my deadline schedule, and my deeply-ingrained habit of writing late at night. Sooooo, I’ve settled for getting 7-8 hours sleep a night. It’s worked out great. Between the happy light and a bit more sleep, I feel like I’m on the right track. I’m going to give it another week before I add in anything else. How are you doing on the changes you want to make?
Is your Thanksgiving week off to a good start? I’m making lists, which I always do when I’m getting ready for a big event. One reason I love Thanksgiving so much is that the food is front and center. We’re having a crowd, which is the way I like it, and I’ve added a new turkey breast recipe and braised carrots to our traditional menu of turkey, stuffing, cornbread dressing, broccoli, cranberry sauce and scalloped oysters. Plus, champagne! 🍾
