January 29th - A decent clean...
Feeling good after having a productive day of house cleaning! In theory, it should be easy, but it seems to get away from me and having the others in the house shouldn’t really be my scapegoat. So, let’s see what we can do with it – as in a ‘family’ meeting with dad when we were young… "if you drop it-pick it up, if you take it out-put it away"...
My motivation...stay ahead, so I can make progress on stuff that is way behind, needs to be addressed (like the top of cupboards, closets, library, pantry, my bedroom…). I don’t have the energy when I must spend so much time getting back to ground zero with the common living area.
Staying in the moment of satisfaction, I look forward to when I go down in the morning for my coffee… there’s an empty sink, cleaned surfaces, most things in their place and my reward for a day of effort… bright-hot pink daisies on the island smiling at me! (all the sweeter when it is zero outside.)
A place for everything and everything in its place is a state of happiness for me.
Hmmm, let's make it last…day 188!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
