New Beginnings

I've been busy!

Several years ago I quit making New Year's Resolutions
as I would more often than not disappoint myself.
This year was the same...
no resolutions,
but a clean slate to begin a new year.
And I have been working on it!

I have a bad habit...
well, actually I have several bad habits,
but this one--I'm going to work on this year.
It seems that I love to start projects in a big way,
but soon lay them aside & they never get finished.
I've been looking around my home
& there are some loose ends that need to be tied up.

So, for this year my non-New Year's resolution is...
to finish my pile of unfinished projects.
And that should keep me busy for a while.

In the meantime, I have some deep cleaning to do,
dust bunnies to drag out from behind the couch,
closets to clean, clutter to clear,
& Christmas decorations to store away for another year.
(There is a small mountain of them waiting for me in the garage!)

And in between my sprees of clutter clearing & cleaning,
there are birthday's to celebrate,
grandkids to hug,
& my family to take care of.

January is my month of new beginnings.
I enjoy the quiet evenings after all of the hustle & bustle
and don't mind at all getting snowed in a time or two.
I hear a project calling my name...
waiting to be finished.
Wish me luck!

I'm sure you will get many things accomplished this year, maybe in your spare time you could help me!!! Ha Ha....

I stopped buying things for little projects a few years ago since I felt so guilty for not finishing them. I only do BIG projects that require assistance from the Big Guy or some greenhouse staff. LOL.

Check out the pair of chandeliers I made last week for my son's wedding :)

I think stopping to smell the fragrance of life is resolution enough. I want to live fuller and love more. As far a cleaning... I'll do only what I can. Live is too short to spend on the details. Miss you!!!!!!!!

Oops.... Life is too short, not live. ; )
