The next thing that I do is organize my desk here at my computer. I go through the file cabinet and toss things that are no longer needed. I might need a new file folder or two. I have a wire basket on my desk. I put mail there that I need to keep, and it stays there till I can deal with it. Anything that comes that is important goes in there. I have a small file with drawers on my left that is full of pens, pencils, erasers etc, computer paper, address labels, info on my computer. The window seat has a couple stacks of garden magazines, two dictionaries, a plastic box with cameras and their trappings, on top of that is a box with greeting cards. A spindle on my desk holds receipts for purchases until I can file them. I just ordered new printer ink...so I have to load that today. My "Dummie" books are on the little shelf under the printer. You know"Word for dummies, Blogging for dummies, and Windows XP for dummies." I have used these many times. Not ashamed to call myself a dummie if I don't know something.
I put the Christmas gifts away and make note of what clothing I might need for winter sales. This year I only need socks. I got so many lovely gifts this year and can't wait to start wearing some of them.
Yesterday, I took two gift cards to the Michael's store. I was like a kid in a candy store. I went through that store and picked up everything I could possibly need for this next year. Everything was on sale and many were 70% off. I had three bags full, when I got home. I'll show some of my purchases tomorrow or the next day.I woke at 3AM thinking about the next project that I will be working on...so I have to get downstairs today and organize the crafting area...so I can start out.
I always wonder when I will get old and not want to do all these things. I always tell people, "When I get old" Sometimes they say, "You are old!" I hope that I never get too old to look forward to the next year and all it brings. I have to get busy now.
