One Quarter Down

Last day of March. Just saw our CPA yesterday. Now that that’s done, there’s so much that will be pulled to the front burners, so to say.

Thrown in the pot is continuing six more months of Flow(eR)evolution. Finishing Earth, next is Sky(‘s the limit).

re: Curating My Abundance
I really am offloading stuff. In anticipation of major life changes. (Always). Always hopeful at fresh starts, new beginnings. Now it’s time for action, and completion.
Let’s do this. Seriously. Go!

Fun, Fun, Fun…Time Flies

Well, there you have it. I did good my first year. A post everyday the first month. And a post every month (expect one month) the first twelve months.

For a few years now this is how I’ve been describing the last months and first months of the calendar year: Regarding December, I just write it off. So much happening, so much to do, so many affairs. January, I’m just catching up from the holidays. February is so short it’s over before you know it. March is occupied with taxes. Whoops — there goes a good chunk of a year! That’s my excuse about missing my monthly posts for December and January.

So, now, moving forward. These two books have come into my life. And this is what I will be concentrating on for the next six months (the “Magic” book in particular).

Essentialism, Greg McKeown
The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie “KonMari” Kondo

I am really expecting Life Changes because of the application of these books.

Their insights will truly aid me in Curating My Abundance.

One Year

Bit by bit. I add a snippet monthly. I did alright my first year. Missed one month completely. Now trying out this phone app version.

Various wrenches thrown in gears. Because of the unexpected, sudden death of my beloved Papa-in-law of over twenty-seven years, I must make my way overseas. Accompany my husband to his mother country. To be with kin.

When one is in shock simplifying comes easier.


Stuff. Live a life on vacation.
My thoughts. (briefly) When you are on vacation the rooms you stay in are sparse. No clutter. Simple. Packing light also simplifies life. You feel more carefree. Have less stress. Less stuff to deal with. You know, stuff at home that eats up time/life. Mail, cleaning, paperwork, housework. Taking care of business. Phone calls, work.

My New Year

This is my first birthday with a blog. Actually August is my birth month. I start the first of the month by proclaiming “It’s my Birthmonth!” I don’t ordinarily do much else. Except any tiny delight I take as a small gift. Well now that August is officially over, it is now my new natal year.

I started my 2013 natal year with a Project 365 foto-blog. I don’t know why, but three weeks ago it just disappeared into the ethers. This year I decided to post a picture-a-day on my Instagram (@gram_boo). Though I keep that social network really small, just to keep it simple, and also because I’m not on there much, I don’t understand how to figure out who’s who.

Well now. I guess I’ll be posting at the beginning of the month, instead of by the end of the month. We’ll see how that goes.

Things I started or did for the first time on my birthday: I started using an app “Couch to 5K” 30 minutes/3 days a week/9 weeks. So far so good. And I “arm knitted” a scarf in 30 minutes [just like the video states]. New adventures in my new natal year.
