Odds and ends from the deep freeze

It's me, reporting from the deep freeze. Today was the coldest it has been since my move here. The coldest temperature I think I've ever experienced. In other words, it was wicked cold today.

A perfect day for a little housekeeping.

First, I want to share with you my new project, The Year of Living Mindfully. Maybe I'm being idealistic. Or stubborn. Maybe I'm overreacting. Regardless, I'd like to see if I can discover my authentic self in suburbia...amongst the laundry and the playdates and the chauffeuring. I'm focusing on living more mindfully this year and seeing just how and where this journey takes me. Mine won't be a journey of miles, but I think...hope anyway...that it will be an interesting and enlightening one. So I've created The Year of Living Mindfully blog. It's still in its infancy and will be evolving over time, but I'm very excited about the possibilities. I invite you to join me. I'd love to hear your thoughts. Maybe this will be your year to live mindfully as well.

My Bluebonnet in Beantown blog will continue to focus on design, cooking, photography, and travels. And other random bits that float through my life.

On a design-related note, here's the photo for those of you who wanted to see just how big a breadbox is (and how much it holds).

This breadbox measures 19” w x 5.5” h x 10” d, and holds two loaves of bread plus other bits and bobs. Later, I also managed to add two packages of tortillas. The breadbox is definitely large enough for my carb-loving family of five.

Keep warm, my friends!
