Happy 2018- I'm a little late to the party. Truth is, I am not quite over the holidays as yet. They were great, lots of fun and my favorite people. It did get stupidly cold, but we had a gorgeous white Christmas and New Years.
I have been enjoying some quiet time. This is almost the best time of year- you can organize your new gifts and maybe clear out some stuff. Speaking of which, some highlights:
Slow knitting- I am sure they don't refer to the snails pace of knitting that goes on here lately.
The Unfinished Palazzo- I am primarily interested in Peggy Guggenheim, but the whole story is fascinating. A gift from the favorite niece.
The New York Times Book of Crime- love this. Gifted from Miss Mew.
The Shepherd's View- I was gifted the book, this is mostly pictures.
A Stash of One's Own- interesting to read that some people don't even hoard yarn. Gifted from FC.
Out of This Century- Peggy Guggenheim's autobiography, restored and updated.
Miss Mew got me this print and framed it. It does go a long way to explaining the world today.
I have made no resolutions. Life is pretty great for me as it is, and yeah, I would love to lose weight and save money, but let's be real, probably won't happen, and why put the pressure on yourself? I did re-organize the stash and passed on some things that will never happen (your tastes and priorities change...) but if I keep adding then how will I ever get to those things I've really wanted to do? I won't say I won't be acquiring, but at the moment I have no desire to do so. So this years mantra is "be content with what you have".
