Weekend reading

15 December 2017
I've come to the end of my blog year and I'll be taking the next couple of weeks off, away from the blog. I keep thinking that the next year will be a quiet one and that we're slowing down but that hasn't been the case. Life keeps happening and each year of my "retirement" has been busy, challenging and rewarding in various ways. I'm very lucky and grateful.
Merry Christmas from Gracie to all the pooches out there.

It's been a good year, both here at the blog and in my home. At the moment we have a full house again. Kerry, Sunny and Jamie are living here till their new house is built and Shane slept here overnight as he's flying out to work this morning. I drive him to the train station and he catches a train to the airport.

My first day back will be Monday, 8 January and then we'll start our look at The Simple Home and work through it month by month. It would be good if you have a book to follow but I'd love you to join in even if you haven't got the book. I think it will be a great opportunity to look at what others are doing and to fine tune what we've already established.

Thank you for joining me here during the year. I know there are many other blogs you could go to and that there are plenty of simple living experts out there. I have never considered myself to be an expert on anything. I just live in a way that makes sense to me and then I write about it, hoping that it makes sense to others as well. I invite you all to continue making sense with me next year.  We'll start off with The Simple Home and who knows what else. That's the real beauty of a new year. The possibilities seem endless.

I hope you have a very happy Christmas. Stay safe everyone. 💖

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas; 
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart.
