A Date To Remember

Hey! Do y'all know what day it is?!  Come on, come on...Guess.

No!...It's not Wednesday! It's Tuesday sillies :O)

Today is a very special day.  It will only happen once in forever.

Still can't figure it out?

Today is...

November 12, 2013...


How cool is this day's date?

Happy Fall Y'all

It appears that I haven't posted since January. Appearances can be deceiving.

In my pursuit of blogging perfection, I've been having technical difficulties (I accidentally deleted nearly all of my posts).  Those difficulties have had me considering to quit blogging all together (gasp!).

But, I'm not.  I do actually plan to start back up soon. Until then...
Happy Fall Y'all

Disgust + Purge = Bliss

Psalms 112:1
Praise ye the Lord.  Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord, that delighteth greatly in his commandments.

The Two Who Hold My Heart
Well, y'all the tree is down, the decorations are put away, & sadly this Christmas is now "Christmas past".

Now begins our week of purging. Most people do this in the spring, but there's just something about the new year that makes me want to get rid of stuff.

For some reason I seem to get disgusted with myself, or at least with the amount of stuff I have allowed myself to collect over the year.

I think this "disgust" is what drives me to this annual cleaning spree, so I guess a little "disgust" can be a good thing.

For instance, today was "kitchen & bath day". I had 3 jars of cayenne pepper...3 JARS!  How does that happen?  I also added about 4 dozen applesauce cups to my gardening shed (more about my applesauce cup obsession later).  I also have thrown out nearly 3 bags of outdated condiments, medicine, & toiletries.

The amount of  useless stuff we seem to hang onto amazes me. What's more amazing...Is how we fit so much stuff into less than 800 square feet.

Tomorrow will be "master bedroom day". I dread this day the most...I'm a girl...I love shoes, & bags, & clothes...&...need I say more. It's also my sewing space & the "catch all" room in our house.  None the less it's a room that is seriously over crowded, especially since it's the Man's office now too.

To keep me motivated, I'm rewarding myself for completing this room, by making new curtains & a bedskirt. Which may also lead to new lamps & a refreshing new paint color:O)
