Have you ever suddenly felt cold in your normally warm home and realized that there is a draft coming from somewhere?
Yes, that feeling. A hot soup kind of feeling.
My dear readers it is COLD in most of Florida.
And definitely cold in my neck of the woods.
This morning the temp was a chilly 42 degrees and Wednesday the temp is predicted to be 40 degrees.
Zero dark thirty found me wanting to pull the covers over my head and go back to sleep.
I know, I know…these temperatures are not really cold when one considers the temperatures in other parts of the country, but for down here…it is cold.
I don’t want to venture out until the outside temperature matches my age! 😉
On another note, my beautiful grand daughter suggested trying Stitch Fix.
Have you heard of it?
Below are the company’s words of describing their service.
If you know me, you know that I have always ordered on-line, as I do not like fighting crowds in the brick and mortar stores or the limitations of colors and styles,….
……but I have not tried Stitch Fix until now.
I will let you know how that works out although I had to laugh in filling out my profile.
I am sure my “stylist” was shocked when I said I usually wear flip flops and sandals everywhere and my daily clothing, night wear and church wear are all the same attire.
Maxi dresses, capri pants and anything with an elasticized waistline. 🙂
As to the frequency of your choices…it is all up to you, once a month, quarterly, annually…etc. (I chose every 6 months…how often does a retiree need to order a new pair of flip flops or capri pants?)
Seriously, I am sure this service would be great for office or career people. They also have men’s clothing.
I don’t know if having a personal stylist is all that new, but the pic below is from the Trunk Club which is like Stitch Fix.
I had heard of these services late last year, but it wasn’t until my grand daughter asked me to sign up (she gets a credit for the recommendation) that I really looked closely at it.
I will keep you posted.
More to come.
Moving on, I am sure you have been hearing how to de-clutter your home….or organize your closet…. or dieting….. or any other January/New Year/Resolution type of offering that comes in the early part of the New year.
I don’t usually make resolutions because It is difficult to keep them. Especially, if they are un-realistic goals.
But one of our Pastors mentioned in Sunday School class that setting goals is a good thing, it gives you something to move towards.
If you don’t attempt to make any changes…then nothing will change.
He has a point.
I like the saying…“if you do what you have always done, you will get what you have always gotten.” and I have quoted it many times as my children were growing up.
I am not sure who really said it…some have said Henry Ford and some say Anthony Robbins, but the meaning is clear to me.
You are at a crossroads for whatever reason in your life.
Look back briefly, remembering your mistakes,…. now make your decision going forward and remember to pray for guidance.
I love attending church and realize that it is a privilege as there are parts of the world that can not do so freely.
I also love the fellowship of other believers and the encouragement they give by a hug and without a word spoken.
I want to take this time to thank all of you who subscribe to my blog, Me and My Captain.
I love the comments both in my personal emails and in comments on the posts.
I love when I am told how much one enjoys reading my posts and how I inspire them….because in reality, you inspire me.
You are in my thoughts as I type each word or take pictures to show you.
If you are following me, you know that I post about my make-overs, our flip houses, Tablescapes, decor, (some coastal decor), foods, old and new recipes, movie and restaurant reviews, Fun travel in and around Florida, and I can’t leave out my story-telling… which usually includes my romantic nature… and of course Faith and Family.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I love reading your posts. It is so inspiring in many ways, but my favorite is how you share your faith. I am home bound a lot because of health issues, but I agree, it is so special to be with my church friends and share the love we have for each other through Christ.
Thank you so much for your comments Nancy, and as you can tell, I love to talk and share…You are so right that it is comforting when we have our church friends to share in the joy and love of our Lord and Savior. I’m sorry for your health issues, but I rest assured with the verse Matthew 18:20 …”For where two or three gather together in My name, there am I with them.” Bless you and yours.
Everyday Living says
Kari, I enjoyed visiting with you. You touched on so many things we have in common. You are the second blogger I have seen that is trying Stitch Fix. I will be waiting to read what you think! I so agree that we can worship freely, where many believers have to hide in secret to assemble together!
Pam, I will let you know about how Stitch Fix works for me. My grand daughter really liked the items in her first shipment, which included her request for a trendy army jacket that she loves.
When I think of believers hiding in secret, Psalm 119:11 comes to mind and all the memory verses learned and stored in our memories, which may be all someone has.

Your rooms in your house are beautiful, you sure don’t need to declutter! Last few weeks I have been “organizing” drawers, closets but it’s sort of fun and I always feel like I’ve accomplished something. I, too, love to wear flip-flops, all summer long. Makes me long for summer!
Thank you Linda for your kind comments. However, I have been working on my pantry and removing outdated items. Some say the sell by date is just that and not a date the product deteriorates…so I try to use items quickly and not have too many on hand…now paper towels and TP are a different story…I never want to run out of either of them. 🙂
Happy New Year to you and yours.
