Well, hello, after a little break! I hope you are enjoying the new year and are delving into lots of fun projects and holding true to your resolutions, if you made them. I finally gave up my streak of baking pies, cookies, and cakes every other day, and I temporarily traded in my apron for my running shoes. I am feeling a lot more invigorated because of the switch! Until I find some balance, I am locking up the baking chocolate and the sugar.
Over the past few months, our home remodeling process is really showing us what we tend to hoard or obsess over in this house. As we purge, reorganize, and rediscover “lost” items, while sifting through the boxes and piles, we are finding surplus amounts of the most random things. Like six bags of brown sugar, each one hardened and collecting dust on a bookshelf in the basement. How did that happen?! I also came across five bottles of expired sunscreen, six pie plates, and four bags of cream of tartar. I am finding that the more unorganized we are, the more the waste and clutter piles up. It is time to shake things up around here.
