Cleaning like a woman possessed!

I needed to change my sheets today and I had been wanting to give my room a thorough cleaning but didn't think this was the time (I should have been wrapping Christmas presents) but I just couldn't stand it anymore!  I had those "stilts" on my bed that raise the bed up and I couldn't move it to really clean.   So today I managed to get them off and my bed has wheels so I got into corners and under the bed thoroughly and moved it to the corner.  It's much more convenient with the dresser there as the book case was just a "collector"....of dust books, magazines...you name it.  Plus, the bookcase was open in the back so things fell between it and the wall.  I would love to stop and paint and shampoo the carpet but that will have to wait.  
But for now it feels so much cleaner than it was and I only have the books I am reading on my nightstand plus with this arrangement I was able to actually plug in my phone and my tablet too.
The drawers contain linens now but they will be cleared out to hold my "projects" so Miss Peeps doesn't get into them and I can get them off my dressers where they are presently "piled" to keep them away from her! LOL! 
I've been taking things to the basement and going through things to "use it up, make it do, throw it out or buy it new" and I ran across a string of bee lights that my daughter had gifted me........they are now strung over my bathroom mirror which is just enough light to use the bathroom without having to turn on the overhead fixtures............unfortunately it was dark when I took my pictures a few minutes ago.......but you get the picture (lol!)......and who is that old woman taking the photo?  Got me!
 Here's a better picture of the cute little bees...........I love them!
My Hiya Hiya bamboo interchangeable needles arrived today but now I am waiting on the cable and the yarn to start the Project Peace cowl.  I have a set of Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles in both the small and the large in nickle but not the sharps.  I like them but thought I would try the bamboo as I have heard some people rave about them.  I'll let you know.
I got another Christmas present in the mail from me to me...lol!  It's a book I've been wanting for a very long time but it was out of print and Amazon wanted like a zillion dollars for it but I finally found a reasonable copy on Thrift Books.  I'll tell you more after Christmas.  It may not be a surprise for me but it will be for you!  But I am not even opening the front cover until Christmas.......Santa said!
I hope you are all warm and cozy and ramping up for the Big Day whatever that is to you.
Happy Trails!

  2. Look at you, doing spring cleaning during the winter. The bedroom looks very nice and I am sure will function very well for you. Love what you did with the bee lights. A nice soft glow that won't burn your irises out in the middle of the night. Looking forward to seeing what book you got for Christmas.

    1. Merry Christmas to you too! I think I'm working to stay warm....it was only 25 when I got up this morning! It's usually not that cold here especially not this early in the season.

  4. Your bedroom looks great! You have loads more energy than I do. I started the project Peace cowl yesterday. I'm also using Hiya Hiya bamboo needles. I just finished the third round and I'm really enjoying it.

    Cute bee lights. :-). How fun to wake up to those in the middle of the night.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

    1. Maybe it was you that I heard that like those needles? I'm still waiting for the 32" cable and the yarn. Glad to know you're enjoying it...I'll let you know when I start mine. What kind of yarn are you using? P.S. I don't ever wake up in the middle of the night. I sleep like a log especially since I put the cats in the basement at night....no more jumping on the bed and waking me up! LOL! I hope you are on the mend now....for good!

  5. Pretty room! I see you have lights to read by! I have a battery operated light that clips to my book, comes in real handy in a power outage! Have a good weekend! :)

    1. I have a clip o-on book light too for power outages and plenty of batteries....I just stocked up in case we get an ice storm! It's darn cold for AR! The sun's shining but it only got to 34 today....a little early for those temps down here. You have a great weekend too!
