24/365/2015 Ahhh, that’s better!

And it’s only needed doing since I moved in here! I’m pleased with today’s effort, but a little confused about where I stashed the wicker basket that had all my hair sticks in it. I’m sure it’s here somewhere, right?

I noticed on the Timehop App that today in 2014 I printed off the essay Self-Reliance because a friend told me it had a profound effect on him. I plan on reading it this evening, finally. *tongue in cheek* Given subsequent events, it’s apparently a really instructive read. *snort* Sometimes I slay me. *mock serious face* Smartassery will be the death of me yet.

I got a notice in the mail today that my youngest child owes the library 60something bucks. Apparently it was an error to let them all get their own cards. I didn’t think we were that organized. I’m sure it’s for books that we forgot to turn in and that the books are still here. But yikes!

Okay, I have sat here for a bit and thought about the day. I got nothing else that I want to share with John Q. Public, so I guess it’s time to shut up. On to the reading and knitting section of my day.

We still live here

But it’s clean (enough) and organized.

Been a long time coming…

But I can finally access all my books.  No. I mean that in my old house, many of them were *behind* the couch.  Gratuitous shot of my diagonal dining room included because I could.  If you are reading this on social media, click through to see the entire photo set.

Quite possibly the world’s ugliest craft shelves

I really need a set of tall shelves here, but in the meantime… I have plenty of fun stuff to do. And no, this isn’t all of it. Not by a long shot.

Because for bare footin’

First of Four So Far Today

And I’m still packing!

In case you forgot I was decluttering…

Today, in between school work, chatting with friends, and cooking, I dealt with some actual physical clutter.  Doesn’t that look nice?  I think so!

I also dealt with the bench, which now holds my throw pillows as opposed to….all that stuff I didn’t know what to do with.

Now, at the beginning of the summer I needed to do this whole room.  And in fact, I have re-arranged it twice.  I think it’s mostly in its final configuration.  All that’s left to clean and sort is the top of my dresser, my closet floor, and a stack of boxes that will probably go in the closet.  Unless I leave them out until they aggravate me to the point I actually start crafting again.

Hmm, that last may actually be a workable plan.

I’m tired.  I think it is time to shower and finish my book.
