After giving some good advice to friends I decided to throw some my own way. Maybe it'll stick ;)
For 2011 I have a new house rule: For every negative thing that is mentioned you say something positive. I think this will help reinforce the mental balance I aim for. It's so easy for people to get busy and forget to notice the many wonderful things in the world.
Speaking of which, walking home yesterday I saw the iris leaves peaking through the soil :) Let's just hope winter doesn't crash down on us again and freeze them!
I've been doing some sewing--two sewing machine covers I still need to photograph, and altering a wool skirt. Unfortunately I found a tear in the skirt so need to mend that before I can rehem it. I'll also have a new sweater as soon as I sew the buttons on it (right after this!). Watch this space for those updates :)
