cleaning, and reverb 16

One of those days that it's raining, I did my walk, and now I am ready to go back to bed.  Yes, I am that pathetic today.  Zzzzz.  Oh, right, blog.  Ahem.

On the "I did do SOMETHING front", I cleaned the table off in my craft room, and the writing/typing desk.  It is clear, now.  Before I break my arm in four places patting myself on the back, that still doesn't remove the umpteen boxes that are in the corner of the room, and the stacks of magazines that I need to go through and sort to see which I keep and which I get rid of. 

That's not even mentioning the basket I have stashed in the bedroom because I kept tripping on it in the craft room, and was afraid I was going to break, destroy, or otherwise damage... (the basket, not me...)

But, heck and half, it is a start.  I can see the table AND desk again!  For me, that's actually pretty good.

Now I just need to find a way to want to go through the boxes.  My biggest problem, I have stacked them in such a way, I need a pole, to poke at them, so I don't have them fall on me.  They aren't stacked REAL high, but since I have various sharp things, heavy things, and glass things, I prefer not having said things land on my FOOT!

Blah, blah, blah.  I know, do the Nike thing...

But first.  Something...




Prompt: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

My friend has provided great perspective on the world over the course of several years.  He has shown me that moving is fun. (Mostly...  Sometimes he has to really encourage me, but most days I agree.)  He has given me laughter, especially when he is willing to do something silly, just to do it, not because he's worried about how he'll look, or whether it's a problem to someone else.  Albeit, that can create some minor annoyances, but we sometimes just both agree to look the other way.  He's proven that you don't need to spend a lot to do well, backing down is something you should do sparingly, unless it's the right person, and that a happy grin can do a lot.

I love my dog...


  1. Maybe you could get a tall friend to gently lift the boxes down to a reasonable height?

    And this rain is starting to make me feel like Noah. They say it will stop next week. Maybe.

  2. The Merry:

    The tallest one is no higher than my chest, it's just that I have them very, VERY precariously perched. Like a Jenga game, only much more disasterous.

    And maybe that is why Husband has been spending so much time working on his boat! Hmmm.


  3. hi cat, just found you, and you are a bit like me with the cluttered corners. just went thru one yesterday and i have way too many magazines. good luck with your organizing and i hope to see you soon on farm tails!

  4. I have a similar pile in the corner of my bedroom, I do everything in my power - to ignore it. Now, however, unless I want to be stuck with the inversion monstrosity in my womb, I will have to clear that corner out so IT can go in there! Talk about incentive!

  5. Stacking boxes in such a way as to keep a husband out of the way might help when you want to concentrate on writing. Hmmm, maybe that's why i have the stuff i have the way i have it.

    Animals are beautiful people, aren't they?

  6. Though I will "plead the 5th," truth be told, I can DEFINITELY relate to this! I don't even want to start with MY list of to-do's!

    Have a great day!


Hi! What have you to say today?
