I trust that you're doing well and enjoying being a part of this brand spanking new Year! Some family came to visit on New Year's Eve and my mom and I enjoyed having them. While there, we ate yummy food of course, then we went to visit a bereaved family. Our church donated groceries to them and so we went to spend a little time and of course deliver them. Afterwards we visited another family and wrapped up the evening. As for New Year's Eve, I spent it quietly at home watching back-to-back Christmas movies while dreaming up new organizational projects. (Oh yes, before I settled in, I did slap a couple of extra coats of paint on my bathroom closet shelves. Thankfully that project is coming to a real close. The contractor is coming back next week to do his final touches like installing towel bar, making some minor adjustments I discovered, and hanging the door back. Then I can show you!)
I never make New Year's resolutions, but one thing that has been on my mind since last summer is this desire to continue purging my home and do more things with intention. Not buying randomly. Not accepting random items from well-meaning people. Not living in clutter and disarray. Just doing things with intention. And no, that's not my word for the year. lol It's just something on my mind right now.
My new semester of classes start on January 12th so I have no idea what this semester has in store for me, but in the midst of it all, I hope to be able to accomplish these small home goals. Trust me, I enjoy going out from time to time, but I really enjoy being at home. So I figure, if I'm going to be there, why not have it truly reflect who I am and of course be quite comfy and inviting for others.
A friend of mine and I went out to find her perfect planner and me some organization items for my refrigerator from the Dollar Tree, but it was really nice to have all the doors open to the rooms in my house when she came over. Was it that every room was perfectly arranged? No, but it wasn't a sight for sore eyes. I've not had that feeling before, but it felt good.
So, here's to a start (or a continuation of a start) to something new for me.
I have enjoyed meeting you all through blogging and I look forward to continuing our online journey throughout the year.
Happy New Year!
