No resolutions for me this year. I've copied this from last year's post . . . and let me tell you, I failed miserably :( I actually gained a few pounds and purged maybe 2 bags of stuff. ARGH!!!
"I usually don't make New Year's resolutions, but this year I have two. The first is to lose the pounds I've put on this holiday season . . . sigh. . . . Secondly, I need to purge. Not my fun stuff or antiques, of course no wool, books or crafty items, but clothes that I haven't worn in years, many things that I have no use for. I'm not a hoarder, but I just have too many things because I haven't the heart to get rid of them. Oh, I come by this justly. My mom NEVER got rid of anything."
My niece gave me this book for Christmas. She is becoming a minimalist so is she trying to tell me something? After hearing that my sister and my brother's significant other got one too, I didn't feel quite so special ~ or is that singled out?
For this year, I have a "goal". To spend more time with friends and family. Make the time to do the things that are important to me and let other things slide. No one will know but me. Life is just too short and there are no guarantees.
Then yesterday, I decided to head to a couple antique shops. Of course I didn't come home empty handed. I found some fun stuff . . .
. . . a tiny celluloid Santa ornament . . .
. . . a little "egg crate" Santa (even though he is just like one other I have) . . . sorry he is a bit blurry. I didn't realize that until I downloaded to my blog. Same goes for the snowmen :(
. . . another plastic snowman from my youth (the red-hatted one in the front looking remarkably like the red-hatted one in the back . . . lol ) . . .
. . . imitation scrimshaw whale's tooth (a composition of some kind) . . .
AND . . . another toy Singer to add to my collection. This one is in great shape.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to me, thanks to my DSO :)
Today I've begun to un-decorate (de-decorate?). Thankfully it goes down more quickly than it goes up.
It was wonderful to have two long weekends in a row. Tomorrow it's back to reality. I really like fantasy land better :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
