I need to make myself a Plan. Structure is a good thing. I ought to make a spreadsheet or something to keep track of what days I should work out, what days I should work on quilts, what days I should clean the bathroom. As it is, a lot of this stuff only gets accomplished when I’m ALREADY feeling good. I’m so glad that fall is happening soon though – when the weather cools down I always have so much more energy.
Anyway. Just wanted to make this list. Maybe I’ll turn it into a Plan soon.

I heard someone say once that when you are depressed, you should imagine what you’d be doing if you were NOT depressed, then do it. This will make you snap out of it, they said. Since that time I have been 1) blue–a case in which this plan always works, and b) depressed–a case in which it works or doesn’t work to varying degrees.
I am glad that it works for you sometimes!
That’s a pretty long list, actually. I think those are wonderful things, and it’s nice you can focus on things that can make you happy.
