Earlier this year I wrote down some goals for one of those 101 in 1001 deals? You set 101 goals to accomplish in 1001 days. Seemed like a good idea. I thought some were very reasonable, and I've accomplished quite a few. A one year ban on purchasing clothing and tea (TEA! I have so much tea I had to put a buying ban on it!) started in February. I don't think it'll be too hard. I've narrowed down the clothes that I actually wear to one small cabinet. Isn't that amazing? I think so. The tea, well, it's really hot down here, so I crave tea much less frequently than I thought. But I do get the urge to test out new Brazilian teas, and have to remind myself to stop.
Perhaps the next ban shall be on crafting supplies. Of course, one of my other goals was to give all homemade gifts one year. Maybe I can use what I have to deplete the pile a bit. Let's hope I do.
On an unrelated topic, the last time we went camping (let me stop that sentence there, the last time we went camping I FORGOT MY SKETCHBOOK) I found all sorts of new fruits. Didn't try them there, as I thought it might be smarter to identify first. I've figured out one, the Jamun. Sort of bitter, but if you get a really ripe one, they're sweet. With a large green pit. I promise I'll be a responsible illustrator next time and bring a sketchbook so you don't have to look at pictures of my dumb hand holding fruit. Wouldn't a sketch be so much nicer?
