Usually once or twice a year I donate books to my local library to either place on their shelves or they sell to raise money. I have even donated books to a local nursing home for residents to enjoy. To me, books are worth a million dollars. Did I mention cookbooks????? emoticon

Sorry about the loss of your pet.
Had another crisis with my mom this week---she fell and broke her left elbow---thankfully no surgery needed for it.
I have gotten my laundry area cleaned and clutter is gone from there and now starting on the kitchen---cleaning it takes quite a while as I take everything out, clean the insides, then reorganize the stuff as I put it in. Hopefully will get the kitchen done this week.

Sadly one of my cats passed away last week, and now, I'm cleaning the areas where she often was. Today's spot was a duffle bag under the dining room table. Before I could put it away, she claimed it for resting where she could rest while I was moving from kitchen to the bedroom.....today, I laundered the bag and it is drying ready to carry my things again.

Well, at least is relaxes you---but maybe you should get up and do 10 more minutes each time ---but sometimes you also need to rest---you know your body best.
Only thing I got accomplished yesterday was mowing the lawn---we went on some errands early on and it was such a nice day, I had to do outside stuff. I need to go take those curtains down and take them outside to shake and then clean the floors and the carpeting before I leave to take my mom to the heart doctor.

Those are the days you actually need the exercise to get the endorphins flowing---try doing 10 minutes at a time---even just setting the timer and walking in your house ---moving gets the oxygen flowing and it is amazing how much better and more alert you will feel.
Got a good start on my bedroom cleaning yesterday----threw away one bag of stuff, have medical stuff ready to go down to the basement for storage, and a few more items to add to the pile going to donation center.

Good idea to donate them somewhere so others can enjoy them, too. I have a friend who just gave me about 40 books---once I am done with each one, it gets taken to school for others to enjoy and they pass it around and then donate it somewhere. I do keep the ones I really love as I do reread the good ones later on.

I took a short walk this morning and the rode the stationary bike for a bit. I am limiting my time due to the Fibro but I did it! I hope that I can get up one morning and join the exercise class here.
I am giving serious thought to doing away with some of my books. I do this every once in a while.

Got everything hung up in the closet that needed to be so as to avoid the Friday clothing piles. Since my little dog woke me up so early, I got in some extra exercise, read the Bible, and got to sip my coffee instead of gulp it. Thanks, P.

The back and GP are doing well right now. I have picked up the Living room, cleaned the kitchen and done some Sparking and Chair Dancing.
I took some books down to the community book shelves and put the rest of mine away.

Nola, I know what you mean. The sciatica means it is too hard to get up and do stuff, but not doing it is so stressful I feel that I'm in a catch 22. Hope you feel better soon.

Have to do some sprucing up in my storage room. Storing way too much! Couldn't get back to sleep early this AM, so ended getting up around 4 AM and starting moving stuff around.

I have seen several books on tv saying that getting rid of clutter definitely helps you to lose weight. One was called "Does this clutter make my butt look big" or something close to that. I got the tape. It's a Brittish guy reading. He makes it sound like fun.

I have been doing some slow cleaning today between Sparking. This keeps me up and moving after sitting for a prolonged period of time. The dishes are finally done and the trash taken out. emoticon

Hope you were able to get vital laundry done today---hope the procedure goes well.
I have to take off tomorrow to take my mom to a procedure.
I did get outside and cleaned out 2 flower beds and transferred some perennials from one to the other---nice to finally have some nice weather again---but I am sore---and the tomatoes have to wait til tomorrow to be planted ----just too tired to do that today.

Due to my procedure tomorrow I was hoping to get the apartment cleaned. Part of that is 3 loads of laundry and the laundry room has been full all day. emoticon

Guests are coming to visit you, not inspect the house---so you are ready. As long as the bathroom is clean and things are fairly straight, that should be fine.
Hope you figured out how to unwarp it!

I finally got the furniture moved today. A bookshelf was warped so I turned it on its side and now I have extra room for more books! Everything is back in place and I believe I have more floor space.

You're right! It's about getting rid of what you never used, haven't used in a long while, or even no use for. Oh and the less items you have the less dusty you have to do. emoticon

Getting rid of stuff that is just taking up space is part of it---but so is organizing what you have and not just piling it up everywhere. Sometimes you throw it away and sometimes you donate or sell it.

I think decluttering isn't just cleaning and making it look better, but also throwing things out. What do you think?

I passed on the book and did a lot of cleaning. I vacuumed and cleaned the apartment. The bed is changed and all of the laundry put away. I cleaned a shelf in the pantry and two dresser drawers. The laundry is done and put away.
I love that the apartment feels so clean and organized.

I stopped taking the allergy medicine and feel much better. Had lots more energy this week and so far no nasal issues.
I got a lot done yesterday---started out the morning switching out my winter shoes for summer ones. then reorganized my shelving closet and put out my lighter pjs and put away the heavy ones, then decide to purge some clothes---filled up one whole bag to donate--even a couple of things from the closet---even tried on a couple pair of pants and decided I can wear them again. Then I went to walk the park with my Spark buddy---first time in a long time we have been able to walk outside so it felt good. Came home and rested and ate lunch, then tackled yard work. Mowed the lawn, pulled weeds up front and in the back, also got rid of more leaves. I was pretty tired by the end of the day.

Did some closet decluttering yesterday and have a bag of clothes to drop off at St Vincent DePaul's. Getting rid of things I have hoped to get into for a long time. They are taking up too much space and I may not wear them anyway. You know how it is. You like the way it looks, but hanging--not on!

Have a great day, Friends!

I became more realistic as the day went on and didn't try to move the furniture. I just need to get a wireless printer. I did redo some book shelves and did a short walk.
I will do some more books today and some pick up. Dishes are washed and the kitchen swept.
I am picking up a few things as my case worker is coming today for my helper.
