Packed away most of holiday stuff. Cleaned kitchen. cleaned backyard. Hired company to take out dead tree and trim/cable a fruit tree that fell over partially from recent windstorm-done-whew!

Dusted front part of house.

Made pork roast in crockpot BBQ style.

What a day!

It is like a warm fuzzy feeling! emoticon Amanda.
I just swept and mopped Keepers area. The last two totes have been turned into a raised perch for Keeper to watch out the window.
I am down to the last box and a half of books, approx. 35 books. I found an empty drawer that I had previously used for storage so I will be able to transfer some of the paperwork to that drawer. Almost done!

Good going, Becca & Nola! The new puppy sounds delightful, too, Becca! emoticon

I just ran into the kitchen to spiff my stovetop OO, which I had let slide last night after such a rough day. The leftover soup was cool enough to put away, and as I wiped the surface, I heaved such a sigh of relief--like "yes, finally, back as it should be." And the cool thing is it didn't feel outer-imposed, like something I should do because someone else thought I should, but totally because it makes me feel better when it's clean and uncluttered. I love that feeling of succeeding at doing something FOR ME.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Did the bath towels, thoroughly cleaned the bathroom, including wiping down one wall, did some dishes, gave the pooches all fresh water.

Mainly visited with my sis, BIL, and nephew today as they got a new puppy, and he is so cute and nice!

Cleaned out another box. I am rearranging some of my books hoping that turning them different ways will help me find more room. My kitchen is clean and things in the bedroom are put away. The apartment is so small that keeping neat is going to be a must. emoticon

Laundry has been sorted and started, dishes have been put away and I cleaned the living room but my grandson woke up and it looks like a tornado went through my house again. Once I get off Spark I will finish the kitchen.

I admire you both for getting so much done. I was feeling sadly like a slacker, so I reinstated my side tabletop OO by the recliner (all 1 sq.ft. of it), and moved my little dollar store palm tree there like a conquering flag. emoticon

Vacuumed the living room, den, bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, and back bedroom. Mopped the kitchen/laundry room, and certain tracks in the other areas.

I bought "The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of..." by Marie Kondo as Amanda said she liked it.

It is pretty interesting so far. I hope to learn a lot from it. Perhaps I should tackle my bedroom closet tomorrow?

Maintaining my 2 kitchen & 1 bathroom OOs quite zealously!

The Kitchen and Bathroom are so small that the whole room must be clean to be able to navigate around the room. I could say OO's on my stove, counter and sink in the Kitchen. Tub, toilet and sink in the bathroom. Pantry could be another OO.
Time to head to the kitchen to do dishes and put the kitchen back in order
I would like to do laundry but my back is not happy so I will have to see if that is something I want to do.

Wonderful, Amanda!

Organizing and getting rid of stuff makes my mind clearer, especially as I have ADD.

I've learned through this team board that you don't have to do big tasks or conquer the world (of stuff). Little by little, things get better anyway, if you work at it consistently.

Hence, I thank you for a great team and board!

I feel immensely pleased and proud when I've set something in one of my OOs, and I find a home for it, because I don't want it detracting form the orderliness of my oasis! I really do enjoy maintaining these little spots, and look forward to adding to their number!

I finally got around to laying shelf paper (little mesh roll from the dollar store) in the 2 bottom shelves of kitchen cupboards most used. Had to take everything out and wipe out first. They are looking really pretty now!

I love my 3 little OOs, and keeping them clean & shiny. I make sure before I go to bed that they are neat. In fact I'm trying to check on them earlier, so I'm not do late cleaning, after my intended bedtime.

As stressful as packing and moving can be, I also envy your opportunity to start fresh. I sometimes fantasize about moving and setting up a household from the beginning where items have homes, where I might maintain order, without having to dig myself out from under the morass of clutter I have around me now.

But I remind myself that I have been successful at maintaining 3 OOs for a few days. I am enjoying the challenge, and taking pride in staying more aware and creating little routines to help me maintain.

Blessed Be, Amanda

emoticon Leslie!
There are no OO's at this point but I look forward to doing some in my new apartment. I have a friend who is coming 100 miles next week to help me unpack. I told her that I would save my books for when she came and she could take some home with her.
I am going to strip everything from the kitchen today and pack it. I will take those things first to get the kitchen set up first.
Keeper seems better today. My excitement is returning!

My housekeeper was here today, so most of the work has been done, but after she leaves, I need to put away all the laundry, and that's been done. emoticon

I was inspired by you, and picked up a couple of candles at Safeway, while grocery shopping. They were 75% off, autumn-themed metallic pumpkins--coppery-orange and silver-dusted cranberry red; no scent, by very pretty!

I'm enjoying maintaining the kitchen and bathroom OOs!

Using the last of the Pumpkin Carving scented candle this morning. I love how it is scenting the apartment.
Doing laundry today to ready for packing. I will clean the counters in the kitchen again and do everything I can to make sure that they are sparkling.

Sounds lovely, Nola! emoticon I usually only burn candles during rituals. It might be nice to do so just for the pleasure of it! Nice way to use things up, and pamper yourself at the same time!

I created (recaptured) a couple of OOs today--bathroom counter and kitchen mini-counter. I just wiped down the stove and kitchen OO; intend to make that part of my nightly routine, to check & polish/maintain them.

cleaned out the medicine cabinet and the shelf of my Bath and Bodyworks things. I have 4 candles that are partially burned so I will be using them up before the week is out. I have Pumpkin, Marshmallow Peppermint, Lilac and Sundrenched Vineyard. It will smell pretty this week in the apartment.

I really don't have any OO's right now with packing so I will report on my cleaning and moving. I just cleaned and washed down the walls and floor in the pantry in the kitchen, Several of the cabinets have been cleaned and wiped out.

Wow, Leslie--a whole hallway is a big OO! (Mine tend to be very small.)
Good luck with the packing and moving, Nola!

Stovetop is full of beans & greens cooking, and soup reheating. I'll do my cleaning later tonight.

It was so great to come into the kitchen this morning and see my nice clean stovetop, and a new little OO I created a couple days ago when I cleared off and scrubbed the little drainer mat that sits by the side of the sink. It's by where I make my coffee each morning, and it's so relaxing and satisfying to see it clean and uncluttered!
emoticon I just finished the dishes and wiped of the stovetop, so that's another day of spiffing my OO. I want to keep reporting this OO, as I want to get the habit of maintaining it really ingrained.

Can't remember if I spiffed my stovetop OO last night, but I just ran and did it now, plus did some dishes as well. So maintaining another day! I love how nice it looks when I take the time to clean it off! So much return for a small investment of time. (Remember that, please, Self!) emoticon

Stovetop OO Day 3!

My problem is that I frequently create and lose the same OOs over and over, so I'll report here how I'm doing maintaining this and then other OOs. Maybe that will help me.

Not much order here as I am in the midst of packing. I did clear the entry way and pick up some dishes. I folded the blankets and put them away. I need to take a little walk and stretch my muscles, do a little more Sparking and then back to reading.
