2007- the year of consumption!

I have decided that this year is going to be the year of consumption. I am terrible for stockpiling things "just in case". I have cupboards full of toiletries, towels, clothes, food etc. either bought so that I don't run out of things, or because they are on sale etc. etc. Notice that I am not even mentioning the "stash" cupboard at this point. So... this year I am going to use what I have, it will hopefully reduce the things I have around the house, and also save money as I don't need to buy things like shampoo and soap. I am also extremely bad for not using things because I either don't want to use them, and spoil them, or the fear that if I do use them, then I won't have it anymore. So, again I need to change my mentality and start to enjoy what I have, and not lock them away in cupboards.
This also relates to my stitching, so my plans for 2007 are to work on my WIP's. I have decided that my schedule will be to work on Chessmates on the appointed 2nd weekend of the month for the SAL challenge on the HAED board. At other weekends I can work on whatever grabs me. During the week, I am going to work on a WIP per month. This month I have chosen to work on Roasting Apples around the Hearth - Beatrix Potter charted by Green Apple. Next month I will choose another, but it will probably be the Michael Powell, Tuscan Gardens 2. This is unless I am quite close to a finish on RAATH, in which case, I might carry on with it into February.
Thanks for all the kind comments from the UK stitchers forum on my last post, it's great to know that there are such a great bunch of people out there!
I have recently been accepted as a member to the forum, but more of that in my next post.
I leave you with a picture of my black cat Litha enjoying snuggles. I have realised that she is hard to photo as, as soon as I get the camera pointed at her, she runs toward me, so I can't "get" her.

    Dear Liz,
    It's so very good to see you back in the blogging world. I have missed you. I hope that 2007 will be a good year for you.
    Forgive me for not commenting sooner but 2007 did not get off to a good start for us. Hopefully things will start looking up now.
    I'm looking forward to seeing updates of your projects & must admit I'm very curious about the HAED progress as this is something I can't imagine every even trying.
    Will check back soon & WELCOME BACK!!

Nor must we overlook the absurdity of the dream that two persons should take three tickets for vancomycin the theater.. But if anything excited my suspicion, and, putting on my spectacles, I saw that I was fondling a snake, or smelling at a bud with a worm in it, I sprang up in horror and ran away; or, if it seemed to me through the glasses that a cherub smiled upon me, or a rose was blooming in my buttonhole, then I felt myself imperfect and impure, not fit to be leading and training what was so essentially superior in quality to myself, and I kissed the children and codeine left them weeping and wondering..
