Tidbit Tuesday

Just another unedited, sloppy installment of the random thoughts running around in my head today…

Another holiday come and gone. We had two thanksgiving dinners this year – one with the in-laws and one with the girl.  The boy made a pumpkin pie but it fell on its way out of the oven. What a mess but it will be  a good memory in the years to come.

Nice visit with the girl – no arguments or heated discussions. Still haven’t managed to meet the boyfriend – hopefully it will happen some time soon.

Finally convinced the hubby that it was time to retire his artificial Christmas tree. We got a new one from Target and put it up the day after Thanksgiving. The boy decorated it and now we are just waiting to see how Marco will react to it. I need to get the other decorations out, check and see what is in need of repairs or is no longer something I want to have, and then put them out.

Starting to look ahead to next year – thinking about what I might want to achieve. Lots of ideas – need to really consider what is most important and choose just a few to really focus on and commit to making progress.

Progress – that was supposed to be my word of the year for 2016. I didn’t do very well with that. I started out strong but quickly faltered and then it just faded away. I stopped keeping track and gradually it just became “out of sight, out of mind.” I need to develop a better system to keep my goals in front of me.

That’s it for today – I’ll be back later in the week with another declutter update. Until then, have a great day wherever you are.


Tuesday Tidbits

Here are the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…

It was so beautiful this morning. We had our first snowfall of the season and everything looked so crisp, clean and bright. Made me wish I had a camera(and the talent) to take some photos.

Wondering how many of DD’s friends will show up for her sweet sixteen party on Saturday. She invited 60 of her nearest and dearest friends and family to join her on a party boat to sail and dance for 3 hours.

Wishing I had done a bit more in the orchard before the snow came.

Happy to not be cooking for Thanksgiving – I’ll gladly do clean up instead.

Not looking forward to doing Christmas shopping this year – it is my most hated holiday task.

Off to do more work on my November goal – I have 6 boxes of stuff ready to be picked up and taken away.
