Here is my daytime zone. Work and play all muddled together. She changes each day as I pick up the pencil and aimlessly draw and erase while multitasking with phone calls, and paper pushing as I like to call it.
Last year when I began to rediscover and focus on my art, I had to give up something for times sake. It is sad to say that what I gave up was the balance of housework, yardwork and the rest of my daily chores.
Before blogging and arting I checked into Flylady every morning to see what the day's chore was.
Do any of you know about Flylady? Of all the blogs I read I don't think I have ever seen her mentioned. I now realize that the way I kept our home in order and somewhat clean all the time was staying in the Zone. All I did was check in each morning to see what Kelly's Mission was and if I was not able to do the daily missions, then on the weekend I got it done. No more no less.
You can check out the site to see what the zones are but I can tell you this week's zone is the kitchen and that is where I will focus my house cleaning efforts this week. I will also involve the rest of the family in the zone with Sharon's missions for them.
There you have it. One of my ways of finding balance and focus...
PS I think I will add the Flylady link to the top of my list on the sidebar.
