New Year's Eve- 10:30am
It's 18 below this New Year's Eve morning.
I think T stands for liTTle by liTTle this Tuesday--LOL!
My leg (sciatica) started acting up the last few days and will only let me stand for maybe ten minutes at a time...
...so I gradually emptied the parts of the art&craft bookcases in the living room that I want to reorganize.
This is what it looked like by Monday morning. I have become such a creature of habit since morphing into a day person that, when I couldn't even get to my craft table for my morning journaling and letter writing...
...I discovered that I really missed sitting by those windows to greet the day. ;)
Oh, also I hung the fancy Danish whisk next to the colanders. Love it! (Will get to my sourdough experiment later this winter after I am done dealing with this domino-cleaning-avalanche.)
Karma and I got a late Christmas package from England! Tori sent me a calligraphy set...
...and Miss Karma got three flavors of these treats she goes nuts for. Haven't seen them in the cat head containers here, don't know why she thinks they taste so delightfully different than any US Whiskas treats, but there you have it. Tori spoils her rotten! Thanks, Tori!!
I kept puttering for my 8-10 minute sessions yesterday.
At least I cleared off the end of the table so I can do a little writing in my favorite spot today--whoohoo! (There's a shot of my thermal mug of coffee for T Stands for Tuesday.)
I feel like I am doing some kind of dance shuffle--LOL!
I put something put on a shelf...but then don't like it there and move it someplace else...or I decide it really needs a different container and go on an apartment search...which leads to a box shuffle in the bedroom--LOL!
I keep shifting, switching, tweaking, and shuffling things about. I'll eventually settle on where things should go...for now...and I haven't even started in the bedroom! As I have been organizing the hallway and living room bookcases...well, there's been a slight tornado effect going on in the bedroom from all this shuffle-dancing--LOL! ;)
Because of all the chaos I am not going to be doing my usual gathering up of all my crystals, angels, rocks, and Tibetan stuff this New Year's Eve. That takes up the whole table...which means I'd have to move all that mess off of there...and since my leg also remains only hesitantly cooperative at the moment (my body is the boss of me--feel free to add your own expletives)...well, I shall just happily do a regular sacred circle ceremony tonight (angel cards, burning bowl, light a candle)...which up until a few years ago was all I used to do on New Year's Eve anyways.
[Note: For those of you new to my blog this year, you can snoop in the beginning of January for pictures of all my "stuff" I've been dragging out for dusting, cleaning, and reenergizing every New Year's Eve. :) There have been pictures for the last several years. Can't remember when I started doing that, though.]
Anyways, tonight is the night! Today I shall keep puttering, write lists for 2014, be a heating pad for Karma several times a day (funny how cuddly she gets when it's colder), journal, work on letters, and Caroline comes to clean this afternoon. Tomorrow--New Year's Day--the first day of 2014--I have something special to tell you! But I shall leave you in suspense for now. (Mean, I know!) Till then...
Happy, happy New Year!!!
I just love New Year's Eve!! It is overflowing with reflection, nostalgia, contemplation, anticipation, planning, and hope! Filled with lessons and memories. Brimming with anticipation and wonder. Ahhhh!
Happy, happy New Year, everybody!!!
