When did that happen??? I still have trouble writing "20xx" on my checks!
Which also shows how very out of style I am. No cell phone. No tablet. No auto pay.
And still, I will not be changing any of that in 20--whatever!!!
So it is resolution/ failure time. That very moment that I tell the world EVERYTHING I am going to accomplish this year .......... and then let you document my failure.
So be it. Que sera sera. (Another nod to my ever increasing age .... name the singer on that tune!!!)
First all .... I resolve to blog more. I love blogging and I don't do it enough. I come to blog ... and then I rapidly get sucked in to Pinterest, Facebook and everything else in the Twitter-sphere. So that is a definite must do. More blogging ... less posting, pinning and tweeting.
To that end .... I deleted a LOT of bookmarks and unsubscribed to lots of pages. Less cyber-clutter to suck me in to the abyss.
Resolution numero dos ...... Accomplish little things. Life at Miss Eff's is about making our simple life ... simpler and more comfortable and more "us."
One of the big areas toward simplicity is storage and organization. I am trying to think of ways that will keep our home cleaner, more organized and drop-in-guest ready.
I would love to blame Honey .... but I have to admit, I am the guilty party. Between knitting, spinning, embroidery, sewing, and now hopefully, quilting ...... there are explosions of supplies everywhere!
My goal .... finish what I start, ( I know!!!! What a concept!!!) use what I have, and conscientiously think before I make new purchases. I'll let you know how that works for me. ;)
And finally ..... enjoy our life more. To that end ..... there may be changes in the farm.
There will be grass paths through the garden as they will be easier and less expensive than mulch to maintain.
The corn-zebo is changing .... there will still be a table but it will be smaller. I hope to make the corn-zebo draw Honey and I into it in the evenings ... like it used to. So a more comfortable, casual corn-zebo will be in the future.
And then, there will be spaces and gardens that are ours and spaces and gardens that are public. I hate the fact that I leave the gardens in the evening and hide in the house. I think it is because they represent work-time. I need places that represent home to me. We have two acres .... we can carve out places that are ours and ours alone.
So ... three resolutions.
Accomplish little things.
Enjoy our life.
I think that is enough ..... don't you???
Happy New Year from Miss Eff, Honey, the girls, all the cats and Duck.
