2014: Separate the Wheat from the Chaff

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  The network recaps of 2013 crack (ooops, pun alert) me up.  I swear Toronto Mayor, Tom Ford, is a laugh-out-loud idiot. Somehow, I missed the whole "I have plenty to eat at home comment" until today. I love to laugh, so Major Ford, I thank you.  My Canadian friends, I apologize.

I am antsy in anticipation of all the good things coming in 2014!  It is going to be a GREAT YEAR!
How did your 2013 stack up?  Mine was Fab-U-lous!  It has taken me mucho lonnnng to realize that mini-accomplishments are the stuff of an excellent life. Happily, I can report I also scratched off some of my major bucket list goals. (I'm still a wee bit shy about sharing those accomplishments. My posse of amigos know of what I speak.)

Ya know what makes me grin like crazy? All the good stuff was stuff that years ago I would have deemed impossible. Because I 'couldn't afford' it, 'don't have time for', 'am too old, etc.' to do that'. Wrong-y Dong-y.  Once you set the good stuff in motion, the momentum of good stuff follows.

So, do you have a New Year's Resolution?  I like to pick meaningful slogans that remind me stay the course. 2014 is my year to Separate the Wheat from the Chaff (How can I go wrong with a Biblical Parable is my inspiration?)

When the pinata of life breaks open,  I intend cull through the crap and find that one excellent choice--my diamond. 

Totems are great inspirations for reminding you of your resolutions.  Look what showed up on Craigslist this morning:

Please tell me about your plans for '14? Resolutions 'yea' or 'nay'?  What do you do to keep inspired?


  1. Happy New Year!
    Wishing you the best one ever!

  2. First of all, from this need to apologize. We all, well most of us, are ashamed of and disgusted with Rob Ford and his antics, no matter how much they make him comedic fodder. He is a laughing stock and such a poor representation of our beautiful Toronto. (By the way, hubby got a "I've got enough to eat...." t-shirt from his son as a gift and loves it).

    As for 2014 - it's going to be an amazing year - my daughter is getting married in Sept, my best friend's son is getting married in May, business is going well and life here in our new little town gets fuller and fuller by the month. Excited to be part of all this happiness.

  3. Happy New Year Linda!! 2013 was a very good year for me too! I'm planning on having an even better 2014!!

  4. I like that Bible verse! A good one!

  5. Ha Linda you crack me up! 2014 is going to be a great year for me, I RETIRE from my day job end of 2013! Let the painting begin! Happy New Year!

  6. Those lamps are fabulous and so unusual. Have not seen anything like them.
