confession: I took a long walk this morning for the first time since late November or early December.
realization: it is safe to come out of the house again in less than three layers of warm clothing, boots and a furry winter coat
confession: the shades and drapes in our home have been shut almost non-stop for over 2 months.
realization: the sun is now capable of lighting and warming a room as well as melting snow, thus creating lovely flowing water sounds out of doors…
confession: I did indulge in buying the peacock shoes–I got them for $28.50 on clearance in January.
realization: I will actually be able to wear them soon!!
confession: I haven’t wiped down or sorted through our pantry in two years.
realization: the largest mess was that people keep moving the spices and seasonings out of alphabetical order–I know, sounds crazy but helps me find things easily…
confession: I have held on to many possessions that I no longer need, have fooled myself into believing I needed in the first place, or never needed at all.
realization: I am finding great joy in creatively packaging gifts and give-aways for unsuspecting friends and anonymous receivers.
