Another month has started. The month of love and hearts and though it is not January, it still is a good one for just being. I never make any resolutions or goals, so I do not enter these 28 days upset that I already fell off the wagon....lol I never was very good at making myself do something, I was not inclined to do in the first place. So I am not a trend follower, or a fad lover, I just go the course of what makes me and mine happy. Works for me.
What is really making me happy lately is Charles Dickens. Wow, that man could write. I just finished reading Bleak House and the names he comes up with, Caddy Jellyby, Mr. Turveydrop, Mr. Guppy, just make me smile. I watched the mini series ages ago with Gillian Anderson, it was wonderful. So I rewatched it to see how it compared to the book. They did a pretty good job of keeping to the story. I have never read A Tale of Two Cities so I believe I will start that next, or should I watch the movie first?
My favorite sport is over for the year. It was kind of a boring Super Bowl but it still was enjoyable and hey, the food was good! I made my 3 bean chili and had all the fixins'. Oldest kid came over and while a blizzard raged outside we cheered and booed and enjoyed each other's company. Though I wanted the Rams to win, in the end, Tom Brady was so humble and thrilled to pull it off, that I was happy for him.
And just so you don't think all I do is sit on my couch and eat bon bons, I came up with a schedule to move through my house and dust and polish each item. Yes, each item. Amazing, right? Broken down over many days, it wasn't too bad and I have just 2 bedrooms to complete. I am rather proud of myself and everything just shines. And it feels good to get all my treasures happy.
Well, off I go. I am baking some cookies today. My favorite in the morning with my coffee. And it looks like we have another snow shower starting. Perfect! Always, Kit
