My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Another before and after...............

Yeehaw!

(I do have to say in all honesty that this is an unusually big mess. It is part of the clearing off the table yesterday. Things started getting a little out of hand when there was a big combination of: new job, sick and blogging addiction. I don't normally have things this bad;)

This is an old teacher's oak desk my grandpa found. He gave it to me and it was refinished a couple of years ago;) Thanks gramps!
