I missed yesterday for blogging and I've given myself 4 days for cleaning the porch (boy am I slow!). But in my defense there was laundry, ironing, and a bath squeezed in there. Oh, and I changed the sheets too. As for the porch, I rounded a corner...............
I sometimes feel overwhelmed with all that needs to be done around here but I have decided to just take a room at a time and just CLEAN and ORGANIZE. I get the urge to paint and fix and I have to ignore that urge and come back later or I'll never get anything accomplished. Trust me....I've done that before and ended up with a bigger mess!
There's a door behind that bookcase. I washed the panes on it but the lock doesn't work on the door so I decided to block it off. I moved the bookcase from the living room and placed some "extra cookbooks" on it but I still have room for more on it. Yippee!
I put a little magazine rack next to it which also has more room. Notice the orange paint on the wall around the corner? Long story but I started painting it when my eyes went South and haven't gotten back to it since I've had my eye surgeries....someday. But for now I'm just going to CLEAN and ORGANIZE.
I washed the adjacent window and took down its screen and found an old gauzy type curtain panel that I doubled over and clipped with cafe curtain clips.
So, that was yesterday and today is Day #3 and I gave myself 4 days but it's looking like it may take more. I'll see how much progress I make today.
"Use it up, make it do, throw it out or buy it new." So far, I've used, made do and thrown a bunch out. There will be no "buying new" until I am done with the entire house but meanwhile I will be making a list of "necessities" that I can purchase or thrift for later. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
I did notice I need batteries for those battery operated candles! LOL!
Wish me lots of progress today. Am I the only one with the Fall cleaning bug? Are you getting out your Fall decorations?
