It’s time for an update on a few of the subjects I’ve covered in the past six months.
The Lemon Tree Lives!
A Downsizing Tip
The piece on downsizing was very popular and several readers sent me comments about how they were either getting rid of “stuff” or feeling guilty about not doing so. Jennie Scott suggested that one way to hold onto childhood memorabilia is to take a photo of the object so that it can bring back memories without taking up space. A new book (January 2016) by Marni Jameson is highly rated and worth checking out: Downsizing the Family Home: What to Save, What to Let Go.
Learning to Relax
It can be difficult to find a balance in life. It seems like a paradox to work at learning to relax but many of us have to do just that. For some, it’s no problem at all. Just ask your cat. A newly popular method of stress relief is the adult coloring book (no, not that kind of “adult” book). One of Amazon’s best sellers combines stress relief and cats. I believe they may be on to something: Creative Haven Creative Cats Coloring Book.
Have a relaxing week.
