enjoy your grind

Friday, January 09, 2009

I have been wanting to get to this space all week.  But to tell you the truth, I don't have much to say.  I've just been busy doing what I do.  Finding room for everything new.  Trying to get rid of a bunch of old.......without anyone noticing.   I've been baking cookies and blaring music. Cleaning closets and doing laundry.  Playing referee, psychologist and chauffeur.  Making meals and making coffee.  The daily grind is all good.  

I did start a new project early this week; something for myself.  

Is it too late to wish everyone a happy new year?  I think not.
Happy New Year........happy weekend!

  6. Of course it's not too late to wish a happy new year. It's only the 9th after all and my trees just came down yesterday! :D So good to be here again. I needed my photo fix!

    In the ordinary lies our truth and goodness. Enjoy your daily grind in the light of each new day!

  21. Happy New Year to you too - and it was worth the wait for that amazing picture (and I'm not just saying that because it contains sweet sweet ground coffee).

    It's somehow reassuring to hear that I'm not the only one who's been doing just those things this week.

  36. Happy New Year to you too! I know what you mean about making things disappear with no-one noticing (easier after Christmas)...I tend to do that while the kids are in school. Guess you're not alone in the daily grind.

    ReplyDelete

    Oh, the daily grind is pretty good. As long as you start with a good, hearty bean.

    Love that shot, by the way!

  41. I was hoping you'd come out to play ;-) been missing you girl.
    I'm doing the same as you, as I often do this time of year. I'm still trying to find space for the new toys my daughter got from Santa! And I have closets I want to declutter and organize. I like that I'm still finding time to knit some little things. Can't wait to see what you have on the needles.

  53. Getting back to the grind was rough...It certainly required a lot of 'grind' on my part...and some emergency stops at the coffee shop midday. Hopefully this week will be a bit easier. Happy New Year

Aaanyways, what about you? what does your dad suppose xD" Anyway, in my language, there aren't much good source like this.
