I'm delighted to have a new year beginning - don't know why, but I feel like it's a fresh start, and I needed that. As much as I love the holidays, they leave me somewhat drained and out of sync. For some reason (could it be an age thing???) I've done a lot of thinking about this new year - more than I've ever done in the past. I guess part of it for me was the intensity of care that I willingly and happily gave Dad in his last few years, and now that's he's gone (and still sorely missed!) there are not the same encumbrances on my time. Quite the opposite, almost three months have passed and I still look at my clock at specific times and think "it's Dad time". Oh, wait...
Mind you, I've had no trouble filling the time. There's STILL not enough time in my life for all I want to do. Never will be. So I've taken some time to re-think my priorities and decide how I want to proceed with "the rest of my life".
And what have I been up to, you might ask?
|old carriage wheel, full of history and charm|
|gotta work on those wires, but LOVE my new desk - finally got some blinds up, too|
|local winterberry - it's everywhere here, much to my delight|
|found this sweet little coffeepot at a local antiques place ... makes darn good coffee, too!|
|the side table adjacent to my desk - now, organized with all the "stuff" I use everyday for my shipments and some tools for creating...love using those tin cans and vintage loaf pans - have them everywhere!|
|small office but it works! Now I can actually find things - amazing....|
|gotta have a few personal touches, natch|
Hope your new year is off to a good start ... anxious to get back to my blog reading & commenting to see what everyone else is up to. Till next week, all - make it a good one! Thanks for stopping by...
