The obligatory resolution list. Don’t we all make them? Do we keep them?
I now tend to keep mine simple. Like continuance of my buy local, support small, buying strategy.
And my continuing to rid our house of things we no longer need.
That’s enough for us to handle.
I looked at my dinner on New Year’s Day. Other than the mustard, everything was from local or small family businesses. Without trying very hard. It has been something we believed in. We use two local food sources for most of our food. Add to that, purchases from farms, country stores and local wineries.
Dinner was: Evermore Farms pork, Pappardelle’s orzo from Secolari at Mary’s Land Farm, Trickling Springs butter, Lancaster Farm Fresh roasted red onions, and Gabriele Rausse Viognier bought at the Wine Bin.
We believe in supporting our small businesses. Including local hardware stores, like Kendall and Clark’s.
As for the decluttering. We keep looking for places to give our excess stuff. Does anyone want some Christmas decorations?
