|Christmas tree of old
Merry Christmas everyone!!! Hope this holiday finds you great joys and peace with your friends and family. Lots of laughter as well. To all my friends on the road… hugs are in order, be safe and start a new tradition.
My Christmas’s have been unconventional for several years. The challenge arises in finding a new way to experience it. This year, will be spent with long time friends, a different set from the ones I spent with last year in FL. This year its with John & Cheri, right here in Haines. It will be relatively low key, but that’s just fine with me. We might venture up the road to go find snow, so we can do some snowshoeing… or we may sit around the wood stove and spin some yarn.
Well, I’ve had two more sales since I last wrote and I am now done with the weekly sales. Competing with bizarres, the holiday sales, etc has not been in my favor as a rule. But I seriously have no complaints. I still have a couple of more furniture items to sell – sofa table, end table, two bar chairs and could even sell my trundle bed that I’m sleeping on, but may wait on that for a bit. I managed to find a home for my microfiche/microform reader, donated to the local museum. And my Mom’s wheelchair, walker, bedside commode – donated to Haines Hospice! Thrilled to have found someone for those, as this town is over run with donated medical equipment. I plan to have two more sales – one of office supplies (gads, I have a ton of that stuff) and then one more for my weaving and spinning friends – yes, I’m going to sell off some of my cones of yarn. Shocking, I know… laughing here. I can actually see a light at the end of the tunnel. My goal was to get down to 1500 pounds or less… I’m close, I’m real close…
And now that I have room to stretch around here… I am re-focusing on going paperless. Then finish putting my big loom back together to weave. I want to get some bigger items made that I can not do on my little floor loom in my rig. May even make some yardage to make some vests, etc. That will use up some of the cones of yarn (a weight I don’t need to carry in my rig). And then need to decide when I leave here…
In the meantime… my new love is Zumba. Wow! I’m loving every minute of it. I had wanted to take dance lessons this winter, never dreamed I’d take up and love Zumba. My body is still rebelling with itself – you know what the hands are doing vs what your feet are doing, but each session its getting so much easier and I feel awesome!!! Each hour session flies by… what fun!
So on that note.. have a very merry Christmas!
