Some pictures I took last weekend in Austin! Enjoy!
Societal messages women hear on the daily. It’s disturbing, isn’t it?
Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home?
Have I gone?
And left you here alone?
If I would, could you?

I have recently discovered a love for Filofax binders, and planners in general. Printing my own inserts for them, decorating, writing in many colors, stickers, and more. It’s really FUN, but wow……I’ve come to realize that I move from one obsession to the next….seeking something….but never finding it. Or, finding it briefly and then moving on again.
Previous loves include photography, shoes, making candles and soaps, handbags and……shoes. I don’t love the past obsessions any less, but once I’ve moved on, I don’t usually return. Except for the shoes, of course, ’cause c’mon…..SHOES. I’m also a long-time lover of pens and paper….the nicer, the better. Smooth Levenger and Rhodia paper are my favorites, and I’m currently in love with my Lamy fountain pen. Especially since I just put a purple cartridge in it!
What is it that I’m looking for, though? I can’t help wondering what kind of fulfillment I’m missing that I have to fill it with a string of, “currently obsessing over…” items. It seems some deep soul-searching might be in my near future.
Meanwhile…..I’ll be at my desk….doodling in my planners. 🙂
It gets away quickly when you’re not paying attention, doesn’t it?
It’s been a dismal start to the year so far, but I have HIGH hopes for the rest of it…beginning tomorrow. Why? Because it’s Chinese New Year, signifying the beginning of the Year of the Horse. Guess what I am? Yep…..a Horse. 🙂
Not everything I’ve read has agreed that Horses tend to have a good year in the Year of the Horse, but more often than not they fare better than in many non-Horse years. Hopeful, right?
So far, I’ve managed to NOT keep ANY of my New Year’s resolutions. My excuse is that tomorrow actually signals MY “new year,” and so I will become accountable beginning then. Hey – that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
How about you? New Year’s resolutions trashed or on track? How has the first month of 2014 treated you? What hopes do you have for the rest of the year?
I love that WordPress does this automatically every year, it saves me from doing it myself! Ha! Here’s the 2013 Year in Review for miffed67.com.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, everyone! 🙂
Here’s an excerpt:
