It’s time to get back to it. Our Christmas holiday was so calm and peaceful. Easy trip to Charleston for a basketball tournament. Didn’t travel to my mother and father this year so celebrated with her mother and father here in early January. Over the years, I’ve learned that it’s good for the soul and my heart to leave blogging alone for a while and enjoy real life. Start with New Year’s resolutions (more non-commitment than resolutions).
My monthly good things list.
large pleated lampshade for $20. (also enter small size for $10I use both sizes and some swing arm wall lamps have the smaller size. )
this soap dispenser on my kitchen counter.
thick puffer jacket With drawstring waist.
Art prints from this shop in my younger son’s room.
These (Under $10) Lip Crayons.
Wide crossbody bag replacement strap with many patterns.
This men’s hoodie (For me) I’ve been looking for recommendations on Instagram.

my kitchen counter lamps restocked.
this denim shirt. (Moves a lot.)

New Year’s intentions (but not resolutions).
walk more. Anyway, I walk fairly normally, but I Recently discovered podcast The woman is about 60 and has been walking every day for the last 10 years. I love the idea of that goal, but I’m not sure it will work for me this season.
Donate unused furniture. I plan to stop holding onto things for the “someday” scenario. My dad and I worked on cleaning out the attic storage while he was here. I donated a sofa and chair set that has taken up valuable space over the years because someone might want to use it one day. And honestly, he could find another great sofa on Facebook Marketplace in 15 minutes.
Guilt-free reading for the day. Why does taking 15 minutes to read before bed make me feel sick? I plan to read more while I have lunch.
Hosting again. Since pre-Covid, I don’t have groups of people. It seems like the longer you don’t do it, the bigger the task in your head. order food Please make an effort. Life is short and unpredictable. I miss seeing my friends.
Instagram. Please understand what the hell I’m doing. or not. It feels like this big, nasty thing to have to figure out if you’re going to keep up with it for blogging. I don’t want to share all of my business for “engagement”. You probably don’t want to hear about it either. . .
Did you have any New Year’s resolutions?
