"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." ~ Oscar Wilde

Hello 2016! I know that I am usually posting from Florida at this point, but we have any number of things that have us remaining at home a bit longer than usual. So - snow! While I love sun and palm trees, I do love snow - as long as I can enjoy it from my fireside!

I know that I have written before that we plan to downsize our living by moving into a smaller home. We are making concrete steps in that direction, and have each been working at decluttering and getting rid of things. I must say that I was really on a roll, having gotten rid of those things I no longer need, wear, or don't want to move. I have slowed a bit over the holidays.

Bruce and I have good-naturedly teased each other about the things that we think the other has too much of. Me, I have too many throws (shawls) and Bruce, too many golf shirts. Well, the truth is, Bruce has too many hats! He arranged the following display for me (he does know how to have a good laugh at his own expense). Can one really have too many throws; golf shirts, or hats?


  1. I am in the same place. Why didn't we throw more away???
