I have adopted this as my New Year's resolution.
We stayed in New Year's eve I hooked a bit and we watched a movie. This is the dawn of the new year...
And this would be the evening of the new year yuck.
We were very spoiled with the amazing warm December.
We got up made a huge breakfast and then I started weeding out my closet. I have been doing major weeding out, I am not sure what gave me the energy but it feels so good when it is done. And it has been years since It has been this cleaned out. I have carted car loads of discards to the dump and the thrifts in the past couple of months. I am saving my wool room for last and I will be weeding it out.
I plan on making bundles to sell very reasonable. I have more wool than I will ever hook in this life time.
And on Jan 2nd we went to this cutie's birthday party..
Her mother who put the "$" in frugal bought a Halloween witch that was marked way down and filled it with 1/2 price Christmas candy.
We called it the birthday witch that you had to beat up so she didn't steal your gifts;) The two grandfathers offered to be in the line of fire. Well it ended up being one tough witch and Daddy had to make the starter hole. The kids loved it and didn't care what it was only that it was filled with candy.
She got lots of lovely gifts and Pepe was happy to go fishing with her.
It has been a very good holiday season and I am looking forward to getting back to my rug hooking guild and maybe take a class or two.
I have been taking a free online class on Monday's and it really is a chance to get to know yourself. And to learn to journal daily which I do anyway. I believe nothing good can come to you if you are not truly grateful for what you have now. No matter who you are you have something to be grateful for. The one thing I do a lot is say "I will do that when I retire" Retirement is still several years away.The class has shown we that there are ways to not put off life and the things I really want to do, I can in different ways and still be happy about it.
So what are your New Year resolutions?
P.s. Don't for Downton Abbey tonight!!!!!
