My word for the year is DECLUTTER!  Thanks Kelly, of Charming Chatter, for thinking of this wonderful motivator.  I LOVE to browse and shop at antique and thrift stores. Needless to say, I don't  come home empty handed.  My husband had an idea, more like a strong suggestion, one bag of stuff  needs to leave the house before one comes in.  I'm trying.  Filled a bag last night.

Last year at this time I was
on the beach, in Barbados. 
 My friend, Chris, is there right now.  Temperature here, outside Washington, D.C. is 18 degrees. My daughter emailed me to say 83 days to spring break.  She forgot I go a week before she does, so that means 76 days for me.  Just like last year at this time, a snowstorm is predicted for this area., on Wednesday into Thursday.


  1. That is a great word...if you don't mind, I'm adopting it! lol!

  2. What a great word Cheryl - it's something I think we all need to do more of! And, you're off to a great start! Can't wait to stitch with you on Saturday!! Oh, that photo of the beach makes me long for summer - how fun you got to go there last winter!!!
