What I Can’t Let Go Of:
(just like the NPR Politics podcast on Fridays- minus the “Politics or otherwise” disclaimer.
This blog is publicly, a politics-free zone, so all musings will be “Otherwise“.)
How fluid and pivot-ready we are — or are required to be!
I know! You scratching your head here, aren’t you. Huhhhh?
The Hubs, a college football fanatic (that might be a bit strong –more devotee) has been consumed with all the various championship games. And then there’s the recently announced additional conference restructuring. Long held traditions being tossed to the side.
And for a smooth transition, college basketball is full speed ahead.
Football is closing down while basketball is ascending towards March Madness.
Somehow we pivot smoothly. We’ve learned to be fluid.
Just like we do between Halloween blending into Thanksgiving, blending into Christmas.
Like this tree I’ve started decorating to blend with the Thanksgiving “centerpiece” wall hung arrangement The Hubs wants me to leave up for Christmas.
So far I added the most amazing copper wire fairy lights to the wall arrangement. (I spent hours searching out the best price and quality copper wired lights — I’m thrilled with them! Highly, highly recommend these specific lights)
Now I need to pivot out the gourds into something a bit more Christmas-y!
I’d love to hear what you can’t let go of!

- Vintage spindles
- Vintage ski
- anything long and narrow
