Since we were with the Sweetwater Grandboy….the smiles and wonder on his face were certainly “spice” for our days.
And since we were in New Orleans….known for the flavors of the food….
There was plenty to “relish” with every bite of food!
Now that we are home, my goal is to find things to RELISH every day!
Yesterday was a great case in point…..
I spent almost the entire day putting the holidays away!
I truly did RELISH the good feeling that comes from making a clean sweep!
The surfaces are clean….
The boxes of decorations are neatly stacked in the closet.
The floors are clean and the furniture is dusted.
I love the idea of sitting back and “luxuriating” in the fresh cleanness of it all!
It is time for the annual “cleaning-organizing-purging” that January seems to bring on for me!
I have just finished reading Marie Kondo’s Book with her “rules” for tidying up. There were obviously some great ideas in the book….but this is totally NOT Sweetwater Style!
The rule about not keeping anything that does not bring you JOY seems to fit with my “one big word”. I should only have things that are “relish” in my life….
The only problem with that is….there are lots of things here at Sweetwater that I like….but that won’t bring me JOY until I find a purpose for them….and I may not have discovered that purpose yet!
So….in the meantime I am on my journey to RELISH both the big and small things that happen….
Happy New Year and Have A Wonderful Day!
