We celebrated a friends birthday, Zooey gave up pacifiers, we ate amazing Korean food (that Mike made) and Zooey got to play with her new chopsticks.

When More is More - And You Want Less!

Some of you know that I'm an organizational freak.  I spend a lot of time going through things in the house and re-organizing to make stuff easier, cleaner and more manageable.  A few years back I did Project 333 (33 items of clothing for 3 months).  I found this project to be an eye opener.  When I went through my closet and really evaluated stuff for comfort, wear-ability and what fits I was surprised at how many crappy items I had for whatever reason.  I have found that more really is more and what I want in my life is less.  Less stress, less crap, and less stuff to organize.

So here was the list I created of things that I want to work on for the next few months.
1. Less fabric/yarn (it will probably take me 5 lifetimes to use what I have)  I have 142 skeins of sock weight yarn alone.  I can't wear 142 pairs of socks.  So, why do I have so much??
** Goal.  Not buying any more craft stuff for 1 year

2. Less clothing.
** Goal.  Purge more and buy NONE for 1 year

3. Purge outdoor stuff
** Goal. Clean out all the camping/backpacking/climbing gear.  We are one family.  I don't need 4 pairs of climbing shoes.

4. Increase Yoga
** Goal.  Get back to 3 days a week of good practice.

5. Increase Running/Biking  (when winter comes I always let this drop)
** Goal.  Get in 12 miles a week.

6. Increase Local
** Goal.  Increase local fruits/veggies.  Try to buy stuff from NM or in LA.

These are my goals for the next year or so.  How about you?  Do you find more is more?

Weekend In Salida

Salida Colorado reminds me a lot of Moab 10 or more years ago.  Funky hippy town where everyone rides bikes and there is a lot to do.  We had a fantastic visit!

Dirty Dash Weekend

We spent Labor Day in Abq and a group of us did a run.  We RVed down and Zooey and Mike had a blast!
