jan. goals recap

great book

I finished one of the three books I've been reading. It's not that I don't like reading. I just almost
ALWAYS fall asleep before I can finish a chapter. Anyway...I finished Barnheart, and I loved it! It was just what I needed to feel better about my crazy obsession with chicken and garden planning before we even have our land.
It was good to know I'm not the only one. And after reading it, I know I definitely have Barnheart.

My goal was to get the photo of my mamaw and papaw framed, but I changed my mind on the frame
at the last minute. I don't like any of the frames I find in stores. Some of my favorite frames I find are old ones from thrift stores. I did manage to finally get the photo booth photo of Rob and I framed. The frame I used was a nice sturdy wooden frame I found at a thrift for only two dollars! Now that's a frame that will last.

My last goal was to join the photography club of nwa, but I decided to spend the $35 member fee on some thrift/garage sale finds. Not sure if I would have the time for the meetings anyway.

more jars
At one of the garage sales, I found two more of those darn cork top jars I'm obsessed with.
They just look so pretty with bulk goods in them. And they keep stuff fresh. They're beautiful and useful.
lost and found polaroids

Rob has been on the road every weekend with his band, so I've been doing a lot of cleaning out and
organizing in the house. One of my Feb. goals is to sort through my many boxes of photos and get them into albums. I found these polaroids that I thought I had lost while sorting yesterday. I was so excited to see them again.

Here are my Feb. goals:

1. go on two hikes. (I heard we're gonna have an early spring!)
2. get photos sorted and in albums. (this is exciting!)
3. make a necklace or some earrings out of the millions of beads I own!
