*  *  *

 I don't think I chose a word last year, but it probably would have been a word expressing positive action on my part.

I'm thinking this year's word is one of positive action via inaction on my part.  

Particularly in the area of spending.  

And more particularly in the area of spending when it comes to clothes.

No New Clothes in 2024

I mean it.

And i will hold myself accountable by admitting publicly if I break my 2024 word.  Oh, the shame of it . . .

Cross your fingers for me!!!!

Believe me when I say there will be no suffering caused, to anyone, by this proposed promised (Lord, help me) action of non-action.  There may be a few favorite on-line shopping sites that will miss me, but it's doubtful they will suffer.

(Caveat:  UNLESS I find a replacement for my lost hat ! ! !
I miss my hat 😶 )

Oh my. Thank you, Lesa. And you know I love you back.

With our upcoming trip, I won't be able to do a moratorium on clothes spending, but I hope not to spend too much. My word is survival, which seems to be getting harder instead of better.

I so hope you find a replacement just like your lost hat. I was looking in Peter Grimes for you. Is the top flat or does in have an indentation around it?

I still need to ask you some Paris questions, sister. Love you and Don!

You're doing great. Don't be hard on yourself, sweetie.

My lost hat has a low, tilted, crown with a single round indentation. It's an unusual hat.

Yes, let's talk about Paris! You are going to love it! Especially your visit to Giverny! ❤
