OLW Blog Hop-February

One Little Word Blog Hop

The February assignment for our One Little Word class was to take photos
 that reminded us of our word.  My word is MOVE. I must confess I did not do very well in taking photos.  There were a couple of beautiful days in February and I was able to get out and MOVE.  I spent time hiking in the mountains with Ruby Foo.  It was great to be in the peaceful quiet of nature.  Here are a few photos I took with my phone during a morning hike by the pond.   

You can follow the journey of my fellow One Little Word classmates by going to Holly's fantastic blog and then following the next link.
Here is a list of everyone in the blog hop if you get lost. 


Fortnum's Handmade Easter Eggs

I am so in love with treasure eggs.  I am also saving my cash to go to London and go to Fortnum and Mason.

One Little Word

During the month of December I had been thinking of the concept of picking one word to focus for the whole year. I was so happy when I found an online class dedicated to this.

The word I am focusing on is
I felt like this was a word that would inspire me to accomplish some great things in 2011.
I hope to Move in the following ways-
Move- get outside and get moving. Take Ruby Foo for daily walks in the mountains - get my blood circulating and moving through my body.
Move- I am always wanting to start a little side business of my very own. I need to get moving on this. Time is ticking away. This is the year figure out what this little business is going to be products related, bee/honey related. Let's go!
Move-have new adventures visit a new country/new cities shake it up. Travel as much as possible.
Move- buy or build a new house.

I spent the month of January detoxing my house ....... Moving out unnecessary clutter and tackling some house projects that I have been putting off for too long. I love the liberating feeling of a total house clean out. I know that this clean out has created room in my house and more importantly in my mind to help me focus on Moving this year.

Results of house detox-
117 items donated to charity
45 items ready to sell on ebay/amazon
1 giant trash bag filled with papers for recycling
Carpets cleaned
Office cleaned
Car cleaned
Furnace Filters changed
Working on sorting through magazines and adding to Evernote
Garage Cleaned
Light fixtures cleaned
The resolution not to buy any more-bath salt or bubbles, bath bombs from lush, candles, lip gloss, cookbooks or blank notebooks.

In our little online class there is a creative prompt every month-
This was the first project...doing a little research on the meaning of our words and finding so fun quotes.
