Challenge Conquered in Cape May

Clump #279: Purchase and send gifts on husband’s list; day seven of seven-day holiday challenge … Woo-Hoo!

Well friends, this is me crossing the finish line of a week that really tested my resolve.  I am here to say that, having stuck out the clumping and blogging of this past week, if I could do it, anyone could.  It’s been a very tough week, so while the daily grind of: what clump to do and how to write it up has often been difficult, the flip side has been my gratitude for the structure of the enterprise, which kept me on track, also gratitude for your support and encouragement.  Thank you.

Today I conquered a clump that usually gets put off to the point of painfulness.  I purchased gifts for several great people who work with my husband.  I turned it into a very pleasant activity by buying the gifts while on a day trip to Cape May, NJ with my younger sister.  We had never seen the town in the holiday season before.  The photo above was taken at The Virginia Hotel, an elegant establishment and one of the lovely examples of Victorian architecture the town is known for.  My sister and I noticed that many window boxes around town were adorned with large, shiny ball ornaments.  The ones at the bath shop below looked like soap bubbles.

This shop window contained smaller ones, with a notice of a sale …

  1. I thought you didn’t have time for fun! This sounds so great. Wish
    I could have been there.

    You are inspiring me to peck away at my clumps! Sent packages and wrapped today. Way early for me!

  2. Cape May. Great place to visit. It is particularly crowded during the migration season (birds and monarch butterflies). The store windows look a lot different in December. Thanks!
