A work in progress towards living a sustainable life, healthy life, making a living and creating a life, leaving smaller footprints on the earth. It is my hope that the smaller footsteps will gain momentum and leave large imprints of conscious living to enable our children to enjoy the beauty and abundance that surrounds us.

A few posts ago I talked about my addiction to purchasing black trousers, having found a large amount of pairs in the closet. I know I have an addiction to buying yarn but that would be normal for knitters. I sent some of that stash to a friend who has moved away as a housewarming and wedding pressie and she phoned me today. As I said, relationships are more important to me than stuff. I managed to scan some more pictures today and found candles. 4 packets of long tapered candles. Upstairs in my stash cupboard, I found more candles. I have a total of 9 boxes. I do like them very much, especially the scented ones but again I have more than a year’s worth here which is a bit much. Good to have candles as they are part of the emergency provisions, but 9 boxes do not need adding to. Another of my buying addictions is vases. Its entirely laughable, but I have 15 vases of all sorts of sizes and materials, from glass to pottery, glazed and unglazed. Would be good if I was a florist but I probably need to sort them and just keep a 5 in a variety of sizes for the home grown flowers. I know I bought vases because they remain hidden in the closet under the stuff. I have put a giant to do list on the fridge with tasks to do and one of them is to select vases and freecycle the others.
NOTE TO SELF- which has been placed in my purse..... Do not buy: black trousers vases yarn candles
