I used to make New Year’s resolutions. When I was a teen it was one of the first things I did on in the new year. Of course it was usually – get good grades, lay out my school clothes the night before (it was always so stressful to do in the morning because I was always running late, shocker), be nicer to my brother and practice new ways to do my hair and make-up. You can thank that last one to my crimped hair in high school.
Later my resolutions changed to some of the usual – exercise more, don’t go out and party during the week, detox plan and save money. I think “be nicer to my brother” was always on the list somewhere. 🙂 Past couple of years it’s been put e-book up on Amazon!!, only drink 3 nights a week, no buying more shoes and ALWAYS exercise more. And you know what always happens. You don’t keep these promises. And then you feel like shit. One more thing you didn’t do well enough, fast enough or just not at all.
Now, I do believe no resolutions are the way to go. I still know what I’d like to do better. And I’ll do them … on my own timeline. Not the NEW YEAR timeline. Because there’s already too much pressure in life. Too much stress. Make time to take a look around, enjoy life, you don’t always need to DO DO DO, GO GO GO. And I need to remember that and breathe.
I found this. It says To Do List. And that’s just it. Things to do – but more of an every day spirituality – be a good person list. I like it. Enjoy the little things.
Thanks for stopping by. I’m off to pet my cat and have a glass of wine. xo ~ k
How was your Turkey Day?! I hope it was lovely – just how you wanted it to be. Whether that meant being with family, having a friendsgiving, or just getting a little extra time without work to download a bit.
This week was pretty much my basic work week. On Friday, I went to Carrefour (huge grocery store) at Fan (new huge outdoor shopping center) and I couldn’t even find a parking spot thanks to Black Friday. Did y’all do any Black Friday shopping? I’m such a horrible procrastinator, I put the PRO in crasinating. 🙂 And I can’t get my head around buying Christmas presents yet but I’m really really REALLY gonna try my very best to not have to do it all last minute.
But my online sales are starting to do quite decently. Here are a few goodies in my shops for the Christmas season. And remember I sell my designs on lots of different products just click the link to see more.
Senior Class Of 2019 Christmas Ornament. Do you know someone graduating from high school or university this year? It’s a Christmas ornament so every year they can unpack it to decorate the tree. And think of you!
Alrighty then! I need to scoot to start making that new recipe. I’ll let you know how it turns out. And I already know the duck and gravy will be perfecto cuz Felix is making that. Have a fabulouso week my friends!
Happy Independence Day to all my American readers!
There has been a lot of fighting for doing the right thing in America, keep up the good work. And enjoy your day, the fireworks and be safe! As for me, I will enjoy a hot dog and a bottle of Budweiser. Yes, I can get Bud here in Mallorca!
Saint Sebastian is Palma de Mallorca’s patron saint and is honored for a week long during the end of January with each day becoming more and more adventuresome. Tonight there will be devils, fire and torradas. Will you dare the devils or will they dare you?
Devils aren’t part of the celebration of Sant Sebastià, they are from the fiesta of Sant Antoni but the two are celebrated in Mallorca at the end of January and they have kind of merged together. Which makes for one fun party! The devils come for you as the correfoc (firerun) continues on, careful for fireworks and devils spitting fire at you.
The correfocs are my favorite.
It’s cold in Mallorca so don’t forget your warm clothes, sausages for the torrada and you might want to forego that hairspray for the night.
January 6th, the day of Epiphany (aka The Three Kings), when the Three Wise Men arrived bearing gifts for the Christ child. Here is a little more information for you and a time to practice your Spanish! Let me know if you need some help. Disfruta!
