I wasn't going to write to you today because all of the creative post ideas that I had floating around in my head involved way too much writing & research & photos. And it wore me out just thinking about it!
I realize that my tendency to write looong posts is a wee bit neurotic. So today I am practicing Short Post Therapy.
All you're going to get from me today are some highlights of my week...
** I've been taking Yoga (vinyasa power yoga) classes twice a week for the past month, and yesterday my yoga instructor (who is about half my age) remarked how flexible I was. Flexible? Moi? I was beaming. You see, I used to be very flexible as a teeny bopper, but I never expected that I could get it back after all these years. Yoga is really good for the soul!
** I have signed up for Apron Thrift Girl's "Reseller's Listing Challenge." Me (and 29 other vintage sellers, so far) have set listing goals for the month of February. My goal is to list 10 items a week (or 40 a month) on eBay and/or Etsy. This will truly be a challenge for me - but I'm doing great so far...
** My daughter had generously given me a $50 Trader Joe's gift certificate for Christmas, and on Tuesday I went on a little shopping trip. Because it was a gift, I decided to only buy splurge items that I wouldn't normally buy for myself - interesting cheeses and spreads and crackers and desserts. I've been in food heaven these past few days. This was the best gift, Rachel - thank you!
** I actually pulled myself out of my cave on Wednesday and went out with a good friend that I hadn't seen in months. After a yummy Italian risotto dinner, we went to a north Minneapolis bar to do a bit of karaoke (him, not me). Very fun!
Because it's February (Love Month) and because I'm a romantic fool...I thought I'd share photos of a favorite early 1900's Valentine from my collection.
Okay, so this post wasn't quite as short as I thought it was going to be. Clearly more therapy is needed!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Anyone have interesting plans? When you stop by, I'd love to hear what you've been up to.
Catch you later,
