I've tried to clean up the side bars. I've eliminated some blogs that haven't updated in 2 years. I have one blog (DeeBee's Designs) that never shows an update yet when I click on it, it goes to the most current post. I have no idea what is going on with that but I have left it in place.
I took out the books posts - no one ever commented so I will try for monthly updates and occasional recommendations.
I did change the turtle trot. I took out finished projects and added one new one. There's only 14 of them there now. The vast majority are large projects and need motivation and time. I keep getting distracted by smaller, newer projects as well as new designs of my own.
Health wise I am starting to do better - which is good because now dear hubby has it or a version of it anyhow. It may be mid-January before the Christmas decorations get put away at the rate we are going.
