Lately I’ve needed a little extra *push* to get some things done that I’ve been procrastinating. I’m posting this on my wall for motivation, and wanted to share it just in case it inspires all of you as well.

A young girl in New england wrote down her daily activities in 1775. This is an excerpt from her diary:

  • Mended Mother’s riding hood
  • Fixed two gowns
  • Spun linen
  • worked on basket
  • Milked the cows
  • Spun linen and did 50 knots
  • Made a broom of straw
  • Spun thread to whiten
  • Set a red dye
  • Carded two pounds of whole wool
  • Spun harness twine
  • Scoured the pewter

I mean, Wow. Now I feel lazy…I gotta get to work!
