Spring Cleaning (Finally) at Our Little House
This week has all about organizing.
Well, in between the numerous tornado warnings (we are fine).
I have never been the greatest organizer and although living in Our Little House demands better organizing, it just isn’t happening.
Maybe it is too many years of having a larger house that had numerous places to throw things, such as an empty bedroom, stairs and a larger kitchen table.
At any rate, Our Little House, as well as The Belle Writer’s Studio, had become a disaster since my last seasonal cleaning.
Mail cluttered the kitchen table, my table I set up in the studio for taxes took overflow and books were stacked on every available surface.
I began the week by doing the bi-annual rotation of clothes. It just had not been consistently warm enough, even here in the south, to get out the summer wear until now. And I’m still not sure now as it is only to get into the low 60s today.
I do love my summer wear. Whenever I pull my brightly colored cotton pants and shirts from storage, it feels like I’m reuniting with old friends.
I then moved to the office where I began putting away books onto the shelves, which are full. This shouldn’t be a problem in the future as I bought my long awaited Kindle this week!
Clearing the kitchen and portable table and putting the table away will be my next chore. I’ve also noticed that I need to get off of some more mailing lists. I did some this week and will share how you can clear your life of paper next week.
My last task this week will include painting that mailbox we bought and hanging it, which will prevent (in theory) any more mail clutter from hitting the kitchen table.
After the holiday, my surroundings will be clear and I’ll be officially ready for the summer season.
Happy Memorial Day to all of my readers in the U.S.!
