Letting Things Go



Hello ladies,

 I find myself thinking about some of the things we see at garage sales. Recently, I went to a garage sale that was being held for a lady who was elderly. The things she held onto were pitiful. So, if I hold onto things too long, will people be thinking the same thing about me? Better to get rid of things while someone still wants them. Even if that's not your children. Even one Walmart bag a week can make a big difference. I'm working on it. 

Let's seize now. Carpe diem. Seize the day! Not last week, last year, or last decade!

Some Things I've Been Up To

 


Hey y'all, just a quick pop in to tell you some things I've been up to lately. Just one of those friendly chat kind of posts! 

  • I'm slowly writing a cookbook which I may end up selling on the blog.
  • I'm trying to cook and eat with much less sugar and flour.
  • I'm doing paperwork to help my husband with his business.
  • I discovered my style now has a name—cottage core. I love floral prints, lace, sheers on the windows, plants, crafts, books, candles, handmade items, quilts, home baking, and anything cozy!
  • I've been knitting pair after pair of plain vanilla socks. I'm trying to get good at this style before moving on to another style.
  • I love sewing. I've been organizing my supplies. I cleaned my sewing table. I want to sew some project bags and pouches of different kinds. I'm almost done with my mending.
  • I've been reading and writing. No arithmetic!
  • I'm learning more about blogging. I want to update Harvest Lane Cottage a bit. Maybe I'll even have a little online shop someday.
  • I got a much needed pedicure!
  • I've been hanging out with my darling Lowell. We'll celebrate 35 years of marriage on May 24!
  • Bucket list 
  • Reading list

So tell me, what have you been up to?

Blessings,

Laura
