So far, so good ...
My year so far
Began a new journal ... a 5 year journal (yikes!) where you write just a line or two for the day and each page has space for 5 January firsts. If I stick with it, I will be writing entries for both my 50th and 51st birthdays. Yikes!
Are you ready to play some UNO ... Roboto style? Cowgirl is an avid UNO card playing fan and we are having fun with this little guy. You record your name into his belly and then sporadically he will issue commands or challenges which mixes up an already mixed up game. We have fun recording our nick names ... for some reason our voices sound like 4 year old munchkins which makes it all even more absurd (especially as Cowgirl likes to give me names like "Big Mama".)
And after a luxurious winter break, we all headed back to school today. Which means back to our routines and an eager face greeting me as soon as I walk in the door.
Speaking of routines ... I'm attempting another photographic 365 challenge with my Unraveling buddies. I'm also in Susannah's Photo Meditations class, am loving Effy's Book of Days and am contemplating Em's journal challenge.
Did I say something about Clarity and Simplicity?
If I had to choose one intention for the coming year, it would be to live life this way
From my dreamboard for "Radiant Me" ... I may or may not wear purple when I am older, but I definitely want to be "having a good squeeze of life" like this woman. Now that is how to be a true Joy Warrior. Will you join me? (Just be warned: when I go sledding I scream - very loudly and all-the-way-down.)
