Cold weather....

So today, Punxsutawney Phil the semi-famous groundhog saw his shadow, and therefore predicts six more weeks of winter.  Brr!

There's still plenty of things for me to do inside my house to keep me busy - my basement and office are the projects that have been going on for the last 18 years of my life.  Will this be the year that it actually gets cleaned up?

I think I'll get closer to doing so - I've been learning to let go of things.  Holding onto things is part of my nature, of who I am.  I value and cherish connections with people.  I value things because they represent a memory of a specific event, activity or person.  Perhaps that is why I can be a pack rat. I forget things, and when I see an item, it's a trigger for my memory and transports me back to a specific time and place.

Enough musing for now.... onto the day!
