I have not been very good at commenting on all of my favorite blogs lately. For that, I apologize. There are boxes and bins and outdoor gear and magazines lying all around my home and it is distracting me – I do not like clutter.
But – I am waiting for a dining room table to arrive so the chairs must stay in their boxes until then (they are supposed to set everything up and take away the packaging). I reorganized the living room to make room for the table, and turned my old dining room into a “library” in the process. That freed up space in the spare room that I was using as a storage room (there is not much storage space in this apartment). That motivated me to find a way to clear out the storage bins so I can have a real spare room – that I can use for art and creative projects and yoga and reiki sessions. That gave me the idea to turn my unused downstairs bathroom into a storage room. That meant I had to empty the storage bins in order to carry them and their contents downstairs. That motivated me to clean out my closet, where I found about a million issues of Bark and Real Simple. Of course, I can’t just throw them out; I am re-reading them (that is why I save them in the first place – I enjoy reading them just as much the second time).
You can see why I’m distracted. It will be lovely when my home is as clear as this patio again.
