Changing My World, Again

The chair sold — hurrah! Today’s task when I get to it, is to empty the bookcase in the storage and take it to the antique store, for sale. Seeing a trend here? Or, I can take the small modern side tables — either way, something is going — today!

[I took one of the modern side tables, the “orphan.” It sold! 3/18 :-)]

Had an appt. today, it got canceled. So I have unexpected free time. I’ve filled this with doing some necessary yard work (Did the springy rake get put away somewhere mysterious — or did it get stolen? Possible I’m afraid.)

I have 3 writing projects midstream, one for my “day job,” one with a friend I’m writing an article with, and one for a friend who asked my help organize a history thing.

All have been sent to the other folks and are awaiting input — more unexpected time!

So, I’m off to the storage to get tables or bookcase to the antique store (Unfortunately, the spinner hasn’t sold, for $5. Given that, I’ll probably throw it in the back of the car and just take it to the dump Saturday. But I anticipate more pieces gone and quickly!

I’ve been working continually on our bedroom. I’m running out of places to stash the “I don’t know what to do with this” stuff. This is the part I dread. It isn’t getting rid of things, it’s trying to figure out which things to keep and where/how. Especially a challenge with a log house, no basement, no attic to speak of, no garage, no closets, etc.

I found another skein of the yarn I’d used for spring colors bath mats. My answer to that piece of clutter was what did last before bed yesterday: I added the yarn to the smaller mat. One less item floating around here and a  more useful mat (it was pretty small) — all good!  If I could just do something like about 2,000 times in a month, I’d be all set!

It’s nearly spring — I want my home to emerge from under all the STUFF!!!
