Fast Away the Old Year Passes
Fa la la la la, la la la la…
It is passing fast away, isn’t it?
It’s the eve of the eve of the very last day of 2012.
I’ve been speculating, as we all have, on the upcoming year.
This will mark the 100th year since my mother’s birth.
I’ll be judging at least one international contest this year, possibly two, and that’s both gratifying and a little intimidating.
I want to do some organizing, lighten my physical load. I have some kitchen cabinets to clean out, spices and oils. I’ve actually cleaned out my main pantries over the last few months and kept them tidy, but there’s more to come.
I actually did a quick cleanup of that fabled hall closet today, looking for something I didn’t find anyway. It’s not good, but it’s better. I need to pull everything out and put it all back in order.
I have a bedroom closet that needs to be tidied so the upper portion can be better used.
I need to get some things in my basement under better control, sort and organize, tidy and consolidate.
The dining room is done, and that’s our big project for a while. We’d like to do a small renovation in the downstairs bathroom this year, but that’s not pressing. The carpet is wearing out, it needs to be replaced with tile or wood, wooden wainscoting, new paint, and a new sink, which we have. It’s not a big room, but it’s a big enough job I’m not sure we’ll do it this year.
We need to paint the kitchen, maybe a new color, something not so pale, perhaps.
I want to have Fringe Elements in a physical location before too many more weeks, and I think we’re close.
I want to go through photos, which aren’t terribly poorly organized, but I know there are multiple duplicates I need to delete.
I want to revamp and reorganize my presentations, as I said before.
I have some other goals, the kind of ones that I rarely set forth in anything but my own mind, we’ll see if those pan out.
And, as of this moment, there are 25 and one half hours left in 2012. And I plan to spend the next eight or so of them sleeping.
