Happy New Year and Randomness

Carolyne Roehm

I wanted to share this photo today because it makes me happy, and I hope you are all feeling happy and looking forward to the new year.  I wish all of the very best for you in the coming year!

I've been taking time during the holidays to spend with my family and also to organize our house.  We started purging the day after Christmas.  My husband is taking a carload of items to Salvation Army as I'm typing.  What a great feeling to watch all of the boxes and bags being taken out of the house!  There's still more to do.  We're wanting to start the year with everything gone that we no longer use or need.  We should have done this already, but we've been procrastinating.

I saw today on Linda's blog that she's talking about procrastinating.  I'm looking forward to seeing where she's going with this.  Knowing Linda, it will be interesting and clever.

While my daughter was procrastinating when she should have been studying for tests before the break, she found this video.  While it's really geared for a younger generation, I'm afraid I can completely relate.  What about you?

Closet purging is the BEST feeling.

Also, Ms. Roehm does the most lush and lovely books, doesn't she?

Thanks for the vote of confidence....I'm not sure what I'm going to do, either. I love that video...that's my teen.

Nothing like a good purge for mental clarity! The hubs and I plan to work in our disaster known as the basement this weekend. Wondering where all that stuff came from? Happy 2013 - look forward to visiting your blog this year!

I love the feeling of purging, cleaning and organizing...feels soo good and cathartic. I have a whole laundry list of "to dos" some are getting done and others are a work in progress....good luck. LOVE the picture but then again LOVE everything CR does!

Yes! A good purge of closets and basements is wonderful. I have been procrastinating on just that and putting away all of the Christmas things.
