On New Years Day, as is my preferred tradition, I bought something new. Or, somethings new. Somethings that I've been wanting for quite a while.
Wait for it...
That's what you think it is. A new vacuum. It's lighter, more powerful, quieter, and has a hose with several attachments. Now I can vacuum the floor, the floor behind/under furniture, the furniture itself, and (squee!!) the drapes.
Also, before the previous year ended I did some housekeeping in anticipation of more housekeeping to come. I reorganized my closet:
I reorganized the pantry:
Also in the pantry (which is also the coat closet and storage closet, with the pantry part between the two spaces) I cleaned up the pile-o-junk that I put there when I moved in.
I think I'm going to put some shelves above the totes so that I have even more storage, rather than just a bunch of random empty space.
There was also an influx of new storage containers, a cutlery tray, and my 2013 calendar.
Finally, here's my newest spun yarn. I finished it on New Year's Eve. 71 yards of aran(ish) weight yarn. Fiber includes alpaca, BFL, borderleicster locks, sari silk, locally grown wool (not local to here, local to somewhere else), and lots of angelina sparkles.
Next time I'll have exciting knitting related news. Stay tuned.
