Happy New Year

We brought in the New Year with quite a celebration, lots of dancing and dining.  I haven't made any resolutions this year except to learn to say "No" I can't help you.  I've already broken that resolution several times, just who I am.  However,  ... I do resolve to try to get a handle on my scrapbooking and journaling.  I just found this wonderful blog with a little prompt for journaling.

Hopefully this link will work The Girl who loved to  Of course I'll need to make a journal book, so that means more fun.

Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will continue to be my creative schedule.   AND I'll have to clean the house someplace in there.  Now that my responsibilities with my husband's uncle's estate have ended I hope not to be traveling quite as much.  So figure not so much exhaustion... but then again a catch up of the home we live in, which has been neglected over the last while.  It'll take me all year, I'm sure.  We continue to have water coming into the basement from someplace, very frustrating.  But, one slugs on... I'm sure my reading will suffer, it's hard to read while scrubbing and sweeping.  Maybe my goal will be to learn to listen to a book... Hmm?

Have a Happy New Year. 

the song of the year

Always something to do in your world as well as mine. I don't get people who complain they have nothing to do. As for your resolutions, if you can just stick to saying no to other people's projects you will be way ahead of the game.

Happy New Year, Irene.

Dear Irene, you and your set obviously know how to have a good time. STOP talking about cleaning that house! Pay someone to do the necessaries and just enjoy life. This is my free advice to you for the new year. You're welcome. xoxo

Happy New Year Irene.
Sorry I have been a bit slow commenting over Christmas.
Love your resolution, and the fact that you've already broken it.
Sounds like me.
I will have to resolve to not let my messy house bother me,
but quietly hope that I might get some tidying done this year!

ps Love the videos, especially the Christmas one. So beautiful.
Will have to try to look up the words.

How did I miss this post? Happy New Year, I hope you have a very Blessed one!

Get some rest. I hope your water problem is solved soon (if it hasn't already).

Happy New Year. I like to journal and "Shutterfly". I'm going to check out those links you posted. Thanks for the tips. I enjoy listening to books while I'm working, maybe you will too.

Good luck with that resolution to just say no! Have a great year.

I'm officially out of jars...

Got up early today, (not so early), and could smell my peaches ready for processing.  I also had a whole  basket of peppers ready to go as ...
