My NEW YEAR’S Mantra!
CLEAN UP! CLEAN UP!
I LOVE to start the NEW YEAR with cleanliness!
NO …I AM NOT OCD ( quite the opposite ).
I like to start the year off with a clean slate…
doesn’t always stay that way!
Helping start out your “Clean up” in the classroom with your literacy block! 🙂
So here I go!
|Keeping these…pants together..skirts…etc|
Hubby even did his shoes! 🙂
|Pile to GO!|
|Cleaned out my closet…found my LOST slippers!YIPPEY!|
|Pile of unneeded hangers!Gave some of them away with donated clothes.|
|Kept some…yes..I got rid of the WIRE HANGERS!HAHAHAHAHA|
So I am DONATING 2 bags of
“UNUSED” clothes & shoes
( Doesn’t fit, holes, haven’t worn, aren’t going to wear…)
Have you tried this COOL closet trick?
Take ALL of your hangers and turn them
As you wear something…
turn the hanger forwards.
ANY hanger still turned backwards…
YOU HAVE NOT WORN IN ONE YEAR!
DONATE IT to someone who will!
The Christmas Decor!
I LOVE my Christmas tree.
I turn on the lights, sit in the dark, and watch it twinkle!
But…it has been up since November.
( Yes, before THANKSGIVING!)
I didn’t have Thanksgiving at MY house..so..
UP WENT THE CHRISTMAS DECOR!
Makes me happy!
But…Time to “CLEAN UP, CLEAN UP!”
Gma loves help! Such a decorator!
It takes a LONG time to put ornaments away!
You have to touch each one…remember when or where you got it…
the memories are sometimes OVERWHELMING..
We started this years ago…
When we travel, or have a special place…
we buy an ornament.

“In Life…there is NO “Do OVER!”

|Don’t forget the year!|
|Little sister got married in HAWAII!We were ALL there!So FUN!|
I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions…
I don’t need ANOTHER thing to worry about!
I have changed my eating habits!
( Lost 32 pounds …so far )
My new favorite “treat”…
APPLES & Peanut Butter!
Isn’t Peanut Butter FATTENING??????
Here’s my SECRET..
Slice apples ( I buy mine pre packaged & sliced ). 🙂
Put them single layer on a plate.
Put 1 Tablespoon ( Yes I measure ) peanut butter in a small zip-lock bag.
Close bag. Microwave PB ( mine about 20 seconds).
Snip ( tech term) the corner off of the bottom of the PB bag.
DRIZZLE over apples!
It’s like FROSTING the cake!
* UPDATE… You CAN use PB.
My newest LOVE
Powdered Peanuts…NO FAT!
Mix 2 TBL powder with 1 TBL water!
PB with NO FAT!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the PB2 with CHOCOLATE!
CAN YOU SAY… REESES???
I have it on my toast in the AM.
So…I am beginning my
I should start on the kitchen cabinets, or the bathroom…..
I think I hear
APPLES & PB
Check out my ZOODLES, too!
Happy New Year’s, my friends!
Love the hanger trick! I’ve heard it before but haven’t tried it yet! I will definitely next season!
I also use this time to clean up… though my eating habits have been less that ideal. I also love PB and apples. YUM!!!
