Yesterday was filled with resting, cleaning, organizing, getting rid of stuff and starting my new journal. Do you ever feel like you have too much stuff and want to get rid of all of it? Just me? Yea, well that’s how i felt yesterday. I just wanted to get rid of all my junk and start fresh. I think i’ve accumulated way too much stuff and some of it just needs to go. But then i get attached and ‘this thing’ has meaning or ‘that thing’ is cute. Ugh. It’s just stuff, right? Why is it so hard to let go? Maybe i’m a hoarder at heart. Actually, i am a hoarder at heart. I need an intervention.

I also just want to mention that i added a couple new things to the shop and will be adding more very soon. Also, if you don’t already, please ‘like’ the HelloSweetWorld page on Facebook. I’ll be having a giveaway very soon and you’ll need to follow to win! Thanks a bunch!

Today will be filled with errands, coffee, a new friend, getting ready for Austin and journaling. Well, that’s the plan anyway. What will your day be filled with, Sweet World?

In the meantime, here’s some photos of the grumpy old man in the house……  ;)  You know, just because.

Kitty. Part 2.

The other day while dusting off the hand-me-down sewing machine for the first time ever, and using it for the first time ever, the kitty seemed to want to sit at the table and get in the way be close. Naturally i shot some photos of him. Notice how he’s using my cardboard to sit on. He’s a big guy, for sure, but don’t let his largeness fool you. He’s the biggest baby ever. He whines meows a lot and loses a lot of battles when he’s outdoors. We’ve tried keeping him indoors all the time but that seriously doesn’t work. He’ll just tear up the blinds or poop in the house in the most random places. Gross. So, he’s an indoor-outdoor cat and seems to get the best of both worlds. Especially when he brings home a squirrel, or two, or four, to show us that he’s really not a wuss at all (true story, i’ve got a picture to prove it). Want more kitty photos? See Part 1 of my mom’s cat i blogged about a few years ago.
