Cleaning Out My Closet

One of the things I’ve had on my to-do list was to reorganize my closet.  Eric and I share a closet and it is tiny.  And somehow during the winter months it sort of exploded and I’d never gotten it back under control.  So, one of my goals this month was to take care of […]


An Object of Beauty

Ready for another book review?  I know, I can’t believe how fast I’m reading them either.  This one is the next book selection for Artful Readings (the book club I belong to).  And amazingly, I finished reading the book a mont before book club.  In nine years, this has never happened.  A month after book […]


Patio Project (aka Operation Cocktail Space)

First of all, let me say a big “Thank You!” to all of you who’ve been checking in on my blog and leaving comments.  I really really appreciate them.  Anyway, a few weeks ago over dinner Eric said he was thinking about doing something about this unused corner we have in our side yard.  We have […]

The Help

Stop what you are doing right now and go read this book.  As I mentioned a few posts ago, I’ve been completely immersed in reading this book and throughout it I kept wondering why the hell it had taken me so long to read it?  I borrowed this book from a friend months and months […]


Decorating with Books

Recently I decided that I really needed to get over and start dealing with my storage unit before someone calls Hoarders and blows the whistle.  I’ve been meaning to go through everything there and start getting rid of as much as I can.  I mean, it’s been in storage for years so the majority of […]


June Goals

Somehow May has zipped right past and June is already upon us.  So, I thought I’d better recap how I did with my May goals and take a look at what I can cross off my list.  May 2011 Goals: 1. Fitness/Eating/Health – Continue with Saturday 3m walks  yes – Yoga twice a week  yes […]
