It’s been a long time. I just haven’t been able to get it together to post. When I try to be perfect nothing gets done. Nothing looks right and I have to do it over.
When I put everything away and in order I forget where things are. My daughter used to say that I hide things from myself. So true. I have a messey drawer but I know where everything is. At last it’s spring and I can check my clothes and see what I need for spring. I am putting the winter clothes away. I will donate some to a shelter like I always do. I have a lot of spring/summer clothes so I don’t need to go on a big shopping trip.
I just saw an advertisement for Nikes and then one for Scetchers. My mind is opened now to that but I don’t want to have to go. I can be a bit of a shopaholic. That;s all for now. Maybe I’ll write more later. I am going to post in my blogs more. I have about three. Any comments or suggestions will be welcomed.
So am I organized? I guess so. The packages are mailed to love ones who live far from me. I started out by just giving gift cards but decided to give other gifts feeling the love. I have given gifts to those who visited me and live closed ?
We had dinner together at a fine restaurant to celebrate. So I have only about two more Christmas cards out. So I guess I am okay with the timing Oh only one other thing. Was I stressed out doing this? Yes but it was worth it. Now I have to remember to phone loved ones Christmas day.
Have a merry Christmas.
So I have put the summer clothes away but it is not cold where I live. You don,t need a jacket. However it is the day after Thanksgiving and I am in the Christmas spirit.
I have two gift cards all ready and two other gifts. I Tthought I I would not be getting decorations However now I am planning to buy some and put decorations in the curios. I will probably worry my husband to get some out of the tool shed in the b ackyard. He hates the hustle and bustle of holidays. The good thing about this is I do not have to cook a big dinner.
I must confess when I shop for Christmas I get a few things for myself like cosmetic gift sets. I hope you will be in the Christmas spirit to. It is the love of Jesus and a celebration of His life.
I am changing or rearranging my clothes again. I still have some summer clothes mixed in with winter I am not one of those people who wear almost the same clothes all year round. I don,t know how they do that.
Then there are people who can have enough space in one closet and maybe one set of drawers That I can,t do since my two closets are so small. Therefore I need extra drawers and some bins to put the ones I won,t be wearing.
I must confess I like to shop and I am somewhat a shopaholic. I am trying hard not to go shopping or think about some new trend I have to have. I,may allow myself a new bag even though I have about ten. I want the brand names and hopefully I will catch òne on sell. I won,t go,over 80.00 if that. My husband likes that I am careful not to go too high. This would be to expensive so I will do some self talk. By some miracle I wont buy one. Any suggestions?
I have tried different makeup from eyeliners to primers. I found out that less is more.
I would like to share this with you. My makeup bag: foundation in cream beige. I like Clinque and Wet & Wild. I use powder after my foundation to set it. I like a peach blush.
I tend to like coral and berry shades to lipstick. I use the dark shades when I try for an exotic look. I also use a concealer.
I don;t try to contour anymore but when I feel like a bronzer I just use a darker shade of powder over my foundation. It works for me. I also use a light eyeshadow on my eyes. It moisturizes and makes me feel pretty
Since I still have oil in my skin even though I am a senior citizen. I just dab on Clear and Clean moisturizer I also use a light moisturizer by Aveno or aloe vera gel I get from a health store. Well thank you for letting me share this.
So I have started decluttering again. First my drawers and paper I don,t need anymore.The paper trail is everyday because I get so much junk mail.
In the midst of this we found expired food and got rid of. It,s not worth getting sick. The next and most important thing is I got two bags of clothes together and gave to the poor. I ve lost a few pounds and some are just too big. Others I never wear. The rule of decluttering is if you haven,t worn or used something in a year you probably won,t use it. I found this to be true,
Now I have to get my mind together , rid of the chaos. I will practice my stress rituals, reading, playing the keyboard, and exercising on my bike.
