Diary for 2010?

It just seems too early to think about a diary for 2010, but this week, I ran out of room in the back of my 2009 diary with dates already booked in for next year. I have made a couple of felted diary covers this week in preparation. I am not sure why I have been attracted to red the last couple of weeks... colour biorhythms? In my colour bible, it says " ...wear red when you need a pick-me-up, or when you are tired or lethargic or need to encourage physical exercise and a competitive spirit. Red will help with positive progress and success, and to put your plans into action..."

Putting plans into action is certainly on the agenda this week.  A couple of Rotarian friends and I had an idea about two months ago and we weren't sure how or what would eventuate, but it seems to have come together. We heard about how a city council had destroyed belongings of homeless people, and thought we should do something about  supporting the homeless in our own city.  Coincidentally, a young member of my Rotary club was also coordinating a combined service clubs/welfare agencies day to support homeless people in the Hunter. So, we became involved with 20 other groups supporting the Hunter Homeless Connect Day - a day of education, support, advice, care and goodwill dedicated to the homeless, including those living in refuges in our city.  Our Rotary club is taking care of "daily essentials" and we have been overwhelmed with donations from our community of soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, etc......

Here is my lounge room in readiness for the packing day on Sunday.

 During the week, Dylan made a headstart with packing a couple of bags in readiness for the Hunter Homeless Connect Day on 26th November. Never too early to learn about helping others.
