Today was the first significant snowfall of 2012 here in eastern PA.  It was only the 2nd snowfall of this winter- the first one was Halloween weekend.  We had around 4" of very light, dry snow so it was easy to shovel.  Maybe the snow was because I just found my 3 snowmen!

Christmas is over

Christmas is officially over at my house!  Today I packed away all my santas and the tree decorations.  The house looks so empty!  Tomorrow I will finish putting the crates away and then dust and vacuum.  Then it will be time to get on to other tasks!  I have a schedule in my head- at least one day a week working on my new book and two days in my studio.  Wonder if I can keep that up.  It doesn't sound like much, only three days a week, but somehow other necessary tasks fill up my days and before I know it, the week is over.  I must be more ruthless!

New year!

Here it is, January 1, 2012 and in a way I hate it.  As the year passes, I procrastinate many chores, thinking I will do them in January, when the craziness of the holidays is over and I have more time.  Ha!  My list is already so long there is no way I can finish them all this month.  So I am starting the new year feeling like I am already behind- not a good way to start a new year!  Maybe as I tackle projects, I will at least feel like I am accomplishing something.  This year for Christmas, we got a new printer, telephone and stereo, and they are all finally up and working.  That was a big accomplishment, although I had some help from my tech support, my son.  Tomorrow on to something else.  I think what I need is a day in my studio- that always makes me feel great!
I hope everyone has a great year ahead!
