Tending the garden now in hopes of a fall crop of okra and cucumbers. I'll prune back the dried tomato branches and see if the roots grow a new set of branches. Bush beans are in a big pot and I see a few, but I may have to race against bugs to get any. I've had to start the organic pesticides and glue traps to try to get rid of a batch of stink bugs that are tormenting the eggplant.

This is a no-spend month, though as usually happens, the struggle is in trying to keep it to a low-spend month. I've had to do a couple of repairs or replacement of existing items around the house, but am resisting buying new stuff; I'll stick with the research for future projects without buying materials.

I'm looking through my almost-full Bullet Journal book. It has been an incredibly useful exercise (started in March 2017). I have the next book to use when this is full, and this will stay by my desk as a valuable reference. I taped a little list in the front of it, probably something that turned up in a Pinterest post, and I'll print another copy and tape it into the next one also. It's something I need to look at more often:

Start by doing 1 push up.
Start by drinking 1 cup of water.
Start by paying toward 1 debt.
Start by reading 1 page.
Start by making 1 sale.
Start by deleting 1 old contact.
Start by walking 1 lap.
Start by attending 1 event.
Start by writing 1 paragraph.
Start today. Repeat tomorrow.
