Monika, over at My Sweet Prairie, says the shadows in winter are blue. T'is true!
We did some culling but there are still lots of chickens (and the 2 ducks) over in the 'real' coop and I go out every week day after lunch to feed, water and collect the 7-8 eggs the girls produce. But it isn't as easy as before because the path is blown in and kinda deep now. BTW, the Rooster checks things out on the weekends! Probably to see if the hens are still letting the rooster rule the roost! lol
T'is also true that a kiss makes things better. In keeping things simple and sweet (KISS) I can reduce stress and save money!
I am still simplifying, focusing and shopping at home. I want to do 12 books this year and if the focus for winter is home decor then the books need to reflect that. These aren't necessarily the best books but they are in my own library at home or from the local library. First up for January is storage as I need to continue the whole house purge.
Before I have to commit to the final colours for the front rooms I wanted to just get the room we are using somewhat settled in my mind. So I gathered out anything that isn't blue green and then I put anything I came across and wanted to keep that is blue green in there.
Not anywhere near done as I haven't even purged the bookcases as of yet. But I am learning that if I empty everything that is NOT the primary colour choice, shop the house, consider 'what if...' and then build on a good base I can tweak and break 'the rules' later. Also having lots of the primary colour in the room helps with picking a good paint choice. T'is true.
This also helps as I round up all my ufo's. I think I have found them all and I am trying to find a realistic plan for breaking them up into 12 months.
Knowing that one room is bluegreen helps me set the priority for 2 wips! One just needs binding. woo hoo!
I am starting to feel like I have a grip on January and 2013. Plans always change but I'm definitely benefiting from having some planning in my life.
"Would you tell me which way I ought to go from here?" asked Alice.
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get," said the Cat.
"I really don't care where" replied Alice.
"Then it doesn't much matter which way you go," said the Cat.
