Long Day

I've been working since 7 a.m. this morning. Here's some of what I did:

  • I used to do stash & dash in older daughter's room. I found two bins in the basement of those stash & dash results. Cleared them out today. Some I had to keep, but there was a lot of recycling, trash and give-away too.

  • Conquered another crafty bin. I found a messy bin full of yarn, knitting needles, half started projects, and gadgets. I saved a small tote bag's worth, including my favourite needles (the ones I don't love are in an ebay bin), a skein or two of yarn and some of the gadgets.

  • The Christmas and Halloween decorations and such have been binned or boxed, labeled and moved to the garage attic.

  • My built-in bookshelf in the craft/scrapbook/guest room now has only books on it, and they are only double-stacked in one small section (and those are all by the same author--Nora Roberts anyone?)

  • I did a quick clean of the refridgerator, tossing old leftovers and such.

  • I emptied a wooden toy box (about 2' x 3' in size) of its collection of miscellaneous stuff. It is now empty and I need to decide if I should keep it. Keeping it requires painting it, as it's unfinished wood and will look like crap if it gets used unpainted.

  • Found all the pieces to a cool dinosaur floor puzzle (pieces had been in three separate bins in the basement!!)

  • Filled two more boxes of books.

  • Filled three huge bags of quilting fabrics destined for Project Linus

  • I am exhausted!

I think that's about all, but there may be more later.

Don't forget to check the links on the right hand side of the page. I'm always adding new sites to the links list and the Feng Shui list. Check them out. All will open in a new window, so you don't miss a minute of Confessions!
