On this dreary grey day, it is wonderful to have someone come to my blog door and sit awhile with me and share a cup of tea. Please feel free to invite others to join me and my friend, Silken Purse, Wednesday Tea for You and Me, at theplumedpen.blogspot.com
As I have dropped in on a number of blogging friends I have been relieved to see the
trend has been toward “No New Year’s Resolutions”. I have chosen not to make
resolutions the last few years, simply because doing so has not proven to be effective for
me. High expectations, black and white thinking and the agony of defeat seem counter
productive. And if that is my expectation for myself, what about those poor souls around me?
That is not to say that I have given up on those few extra pounds I need to shed, eat in healthier ways, try a stint as a volunteer somewhere, organize my desk, my life or the other umpteen things on my list. I find for myself, that lists are the key for me to stay on track. One item on my list was to add the promised pictures from a few blogs ago: my aunt’s vintage suitcases with stationary and accoutrements and how I have pressed my orphaned creamer and sugar bowl into service. Every checked off item, regardless of importance, is a step forward.
