I guess I have writer's block. Maybe blogs block is more appropriate. I have heard that to keep writing one has to write every day. I did when I first created my blog, but as the years go by I seem to have less and less to say. Does anyone ever have that happen to them? In an effort to get back to blogging I am going to write what ever comes to mind.
The last few days I have been busy sorting and de-cluttering the guest bedrooms. When our son and his family stopped by en route to Alabama, I had all of my Christmas decorations still out because I was going to give them to our youngest son as well as the oldest. I couldn't stand the mess any longer, so I emptied the third bedroom closet and once again moved all of the decorations to that closet. This makes at least three maybe four times that I have moved that stuff since we moved here two years ago. I am tired of it all.
What I did was to move a stainless steel shelf into the closet that once had the Christmas decorations. That was in the exercise/craft room. I wanted to organize my scrap booking and card making supplies in a more useful way. So it is the only closet that looks good. Bedrooms three and four's closets are filled to the brim. No use even trying to use the closet for anything else especially not clothes. There is simply no room.
I loaded the folding chairs, old tax preparations from previous years, fall decorations, and who knows what else is in there in the fourth bedroom. I still do not have the amount of storage that I had in my former home. There was a place for every thing. So it looks like I will have to sort out more stuff and find a new home for it all.
I have a couple of boxes of crocheted items that were my grand mother's and my mother's crochet as well. I have organized them by how much I adore them. My favorite ones I can't part with, but some of it I am ready to let go. Next time I get the boxes out, I will take pictures of it. Maybe some one will want it.
I can only take so much clutter especially without a place for it to be stored in. I know it sounds funny that clutter drives me insane. It does and that is how I have always been. Now my sister can't let go of anything. I do have some emotional attachments for things that belonged to my family. Of course I still have some of our kids stuff, but I have packed their boxes and it is time for them to take care of it. That is what I took out of the closets. Ha. Ha. Ha. Time to pass it on.
Well that is it for today. I hope you have a lovely Sunday. We have been working on the garden and yard. The weather is so beautiful. I planted some planters today, and worked on the deck.
