Spend Out

I was finding my self being overwhelmed with all the "stuff " on my desk this morning. It took 1/2 an hour just to clean it up enough that I could pay my bills. (Bills can get lost under all the old stuff. Not a good thing. :-)

I need / want to get rid on a bunch of stuff including two cameras, and old cellphones. Recipes I'll never fix and books I've read. (I Love to re-read some books, its like visiting with old friends. Even though I know the story by heart, it still brings a smile to my face. I have to trust the universe to provide and that when I really need to re-visit that special book it will be available to me. I have to trust I'll find it in used book stores or at the Library or a friend who has it so I can re-read. )

I have boxes of stuff just waiting for me to go through and see if I need anything out of them.

Help I'm drowning.

Then I found this site this morning.

There's nothing here I don't already know but its a good reminder.
Today I will throw out a box, and tomorrow I will throw out a box and so on til I am no longer overwhelmed by my "stuff."
I'll let you know how it goes.
“Spend out.” What does that mean? by spending out, I mean to stop hoarding, to trust in abundance.  I found this definition on the Happiness Project web site.

Another finish object

Another finished object ready for Christmas.
Knit from some yarn I spun years ago. Unfortunately I can't seem to be able to make its like again. After years of spinning fine yarns I find it very hard to be able to make a heavy worsted yarn. Which is too bad because knitting with a bulky yarn goes so fast.
This took a couple of days to do. Finished size 35" around and 10.5" deep. The basket weave stitch combined with the yarn makes it super squishy.
A cowl for Christmas

There's a new kid on the block

One of my dearest friends son and his wife had a baby boy on 11.30.11.
I just finished a present for him.
One Christmas present done, many more to go.
