Life

Everything we possess that is not necessary for life or happiness becomes a burden, and scarcely a day passes that we do not add to it.  ROBERT BRAULt

When your kitchen table becomes a catch-all because every area of storage in your house is full – perhaps it is time to donate some of your belongings.  Once again I am in the process of a big decluttering rampage and so far I am in the right frame of mind to accomplish this feat.

Labor with what zeal we will, Something still remains undone, Something uncompleted still waits the rising of the sun. HENRY WADSWORTH LONGFELLOW

Clutter / De-clutter

This U.S. election has stressed me.  So, the day before we learn who our next president will be  – I decided to do something I truly love to do.  I started to de-clutter my house and my mind.  I do this often during the year and I am afraid I have passed this trait onto my daughter.  My daughter’s husband and daughter complain that she has lost her mind when she begins to de-clutter her house.  Lol  What does my husband do?  He comments loudly if he finds me in his bedroom or in his shop.  He acts like I would throw something of his away; just because he is a pack rat.  In 2 hours time I managed to fill the boxes in the photo below. I picked up free, empty boxes at Wal Mart this morning.  Donations for local charities. Am I done yet?  Not by a long shot! Lol  I must have lost my mind too – maybe I packed it in one of these boxes.
