Oh Linda! What a shocker to find that. That's one way to get decluttered. I hope you didn't lose any precious treasures. Be careful with the clean up.

Today I really need to get a plan of attack in place. Tomorrow starts the Spring Fling (a FB group led by Kathi Lipp to encourage getting rid of a number of things focusing on different areas each day). I did her Clutter Free Bible study online - so good! I also need to get my planner in order for May.

JaJa, oh, my , guess you need to find a new cabinet or just have lighter stuff up high. I think we have the same dining room table and chairs---LOL You definitely got help with getting rid of some stuff--the hard way.
Oh, I am so jealous of the snow---it was melting weather here yesterday---I came in and my hair was soaking wet from outside. I did get some of my new plants in the ground and had to water all new things 2x yesterday---crazy weather---and it was too hot inside to do anything.

Jaja, that was a nasty crash you had in your home. I hope you didn't lose anything special to you.
We are having snow today. I really thought it was behind us. Some remember having April snow. Woke up to it and its still coming down. One thing about it it won't stay on the ground long.
Doing normal laundry, dish washer running that type stuff today.

Last night, about 8:00 pm, I heard a loud crash in the dining room. Turns out that a front pin holding the top shelf had let go, tilting the shelf and sending its contents crashing to the floor. There's glass everywhere in the room -- some all the way across the room. We put up a gate to keep the dogs out and went to bed.

This cleanup will probably take more than one day. But it could have been worse. Had company over for dinner last night about an hour and a half before the crash. Wouldn't they have been surprised! We all might have had heart attacks!

I ended up putting all my shoes away and cleaning up the floor in my bedroom on my side--I had to wash my rugs---darn cats---so it was a good time to do that. I also got some flowers yesterday ---some will go in the ground today.
It is so hot here that we wanted to put in the portable ac unit in---hitting 90 here today and almost that yesterday---and could not find the hose and window connection---thankfully my son remembered where he put them last Fall and he told me via text---so we were able to put that to use---otherwise all I would do today is melt---LOL

My husband finally located the user's guide to our oven in the attic, so we ran the clean cycle last night. I had wiped out the inside as well as I could a day or two after Easter dinner, but now I think it will be 10x as clean in there as soon as I wipe out all of the ash. That's my job for today!

As a family we're also moving the sandbox, and the girls are deciding on what toys to keep. The Easter egg dying cups went in it already so at least they are not cluttering up the house. Hopefully they stay in there and don't move to various locations all over the yard.

My girls have been asking for shorts, so today we are beginning to go through the jeans in their drawers to make space for shorts. Jeans with holes in the knees can be cut to make summer work shorts. So a bit of trying on is in order this evening to check fit and wear of the jeans and size of last year's shorts.

JAJABEE1717 — Right after I posted my decluttering project for today I found myself in the kitchen with a basket of three yellow onions that were not fit for anything but the trash can. I guess spaghetti tonight will have to be onionless.

We are also working outside today. My husband sawed up broken limbs from the winter and we are making piles of firewood and kindling. Not much free time today so that about sums it up.

I got hooked on a new book yesterday and didn't get a lot accomplished. It was written by one of my Spark friend's dd----her first---and it really was good if you like Regency romances. I gave it a 5 star rating.
I really need to get moving today---hoping some sunshine motivates me more than the dreary skies we have had for the last 4 days.

It's Tidy Tuesday at our house and we are redecluttering our homeschool bookshelf in the kitchen. It seems whenever we need to set the table everything on it ends up here. Somehow a cookbook I used Easter Sunday got placed here and we just now noticed. The girls are also cleaning out their pencil boxes again— the things they try to stuff in them! Other than that general upkeep of all that we have accomplished so far.

Kohl, I sure hope you feel better and that the clothes were not too difficult to clean.
JaJa, good for you!
I did a good Spring cleaning on the front porch yesterday---scrubbed the walls, the floor, the furniture, swept the screens to get the pollen off of them, and beat the cushions --no way could anyone enjoy any time out there with all that pollen---then I got to sit out there when it started to cool down and enjoy it---thankfully not too much clutter out there.
Today much cooler and rain--finally---glad I did not sign up for Earth day at the Zoo today. I need to do some housework today.

Yesterday was Flu Friday for me. Ugh! My husband pitched in and did all the dishes for the day.

Today I need to put away all of our day trip items. I also have some muddy clothes to scrub. Both of my girls rolled down a muddy hill at the park we went to. They had a lot of fun, but this time it means more work for me! Hopefully my fever breaks and I can actually do something!

Yesterday I got in almost 3 hours working in the vegetable garden. Today I'll start digging up a new area to start an herb garden. That can be outside the fenced area as deer don't
really like fragrant herbs. Hope the soil isn't too wet to work.

We went to 2 grocery stores yesterday so I got lots of steps in and came home and put everything away except for the veggies---they need to go to the basement---good sale so we restocked.
I think today I need to really clean the front porch--the pollen seems to have ended so I need to wipe down all the furniture, wipe down cushions, wipe down walls, brush the screens, and wash the floor---whew---too much work---LOL

They say things come in threes. 1-I had to get a dentists appointment as a tooth is giving me painful trouble. 2- My tablet monitor blinked out, lights up but can't see it. Can't even turn it off. 3 - My Bunn coffee maker started leaking water out under it. We can't complain as we have had it for years lots of years.
This to shall pass. I am on DH 's. Its not great but useable. So I won't post much until I get something.

Yesterday, I did get an hour done tidying in the garage. Hope to do the same today. If I get out early I should be able to beat the rain and get some gardening done. emoticon

Not much time on my hands today so its day 3 of getting rid of emails and such from the iPad. I'll try to do that while the girls work independently on the lessons that don't require any help from me. Looks like they each have two they can do on their own today. They are going to put away all the Easter decorations after school, so we can celebrate a birthday here tomorrow.

I don't think I've ever seen so many maple whirligigs come down at once!
70% chance of rain today, so it looks like it might be a good time to start tackling the garage. Not too hot, not too cold and wet outside.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind comments. I did go out and sweep off maple whirligigs and other debris today, moved things off that don't belong on there, put some chairs on the new area---we had them stacked near the swing, transplanted some hostas and them planted my hydrangea where they were, and got dh to repair a statue. Also put some fresh soil in the veggie bed to get them out of the way. A good day outside for sure.

LECATES — Your patio is beautiful. Now to enjoy it!

It's tidy Tuesday at our house with a definite focus on the stove top. I also need to clean out the inside of the oven as the roasted chicken was a bit messy this time. I followed the recipe on the package and it greased up the inside of my oven. Never tried using the clean cycle before, but I may try it if I find the user's guide here or online.

LECATES: Checked out your photos. Looks like it was a lot of work, but so worth it. Gorgeous! And so much easier to maintain. I need to think about how to cut down on yard maintenance myself. You've inspired me!

Speaking of yard maintenance, today DH & I will be taking yard clean-up branches to the county semi-annual brush collection, where they'll eventually be ground up for mulch to be given to residents free.

We ended up working on the patio project --and with the help of a neighbor---completed it---so we decluttered all the building materials we had stacked out there----pictures on my page of the project---we have been doing it in sections---this is the 3rd and final section and I am just thrilled with it. Now I won't have to pull up a thousand little maple trees that used to sprout in the mulch we had there. I am hoping today to declutter the rest of the patio and the other yard areas---if we feel up to it--my knee is acting up and dh's back was very sore last night.

Got my 2 magazines in the clutter pile.
Think I figured out where the hydrangea will go---need to dig up a couple of hostas that are there and transplant them elsewhere and put the bush there. Today will be a bit of living room decluttering--bag up those magazines for recycle for one thing.

Well, after 3 trips to Lowe's, we have the material to start the next section of patio--didn't want to overload the truck plus it was easier on us to have to unload some, then take a break and go get more.

That is funny as i, too, went thru my shoes, switching to Spring/summer wear and I did get rid of 2 pair---probably should donate a few others--if I don't wear them this year, they will go---they don't offer any support so do not wear them too much--but they are cute!
Well, I finally sat down and did my taxes---at first I thought I was going to owe but ended up on the positive side---woohoo! Enough to do all projects this year if we want to--I think we should hold off on a couple to give us something for the other years ahead---LOL

The girls are trying on all their shoes and boots in the basement and by the front and back doors for evaluation of fit and wear. They both had to get new boots this winter, so I know there are at least two pair of boots to sell/give/trash downstairs. Looks like I may be cleaning up more footwear today than yesterday from their closet.

I really want to work outside today! Never got around to pulling weeds around the rhododendrons yesterday, so that goes on today's list to accomplish. Over lunch I worked with the girls on organizing their sock and underwear drawers A few items to throw away. I also had them try on their shoes in the closet. There are two pair of shoes in good condition that are definitely too small for my youngest, so I will clean them up and put in the sell/give bag.

It's drizzling out right now, but shouldn't last long. Yesterday shopped at garden center one town over and we brought home japonica and azalea shrubs, lady's mantle, creeping phlox, and candytuft. So a good bit of planting to do today. Daffodils are done blooming, but the bearded irises are starting to send up buds. Oh, and back to pulling that darn chickweed!

I did some cleaning in the kitchen and then went out to do a bit of yard work---dh got the plaything, the shed, and the cars washed yesterday with the power washer---I raked up and moved some of the mulch from the area we are going to put more pavers down to under the rose bushes after we weeded that area---slowly we are getting ready for that project---looking forward to having all of the patio completed this year.
It might rain today--kind of hope so to wash away some pollen--so have one area in the kitchen to tackle---under the sink---don't we all hate to clean under there? But thinking I might go tackle a bit more of that mulch before it does rain.

If the rain lets up for a bit, I may go out and pull some weeds around the rhododendrons. Other than that it is tidy Tuesday. For me this means checking all areas I've already decluttered for spills, messes, and piles and tackling those so I can maintain the decluttered status. Not too bad here except the refrigerator needs a bit of tlc in the crisper drawer. My desktop could use a bit of work, too.

It's the early warm weather that has the weeds so prevalent this year---no one seems to have gotten down the pre-emergent this year because of it. Most of my yard seems to be weeds---and who can afford to have it all disked up and put down all that weed killer, wait and then put down grass seeds?
I did transplant some daffodils yesterday and pulled some weeds yesterday. Today it is the kitchen and probably try to clean on the porch---too much pollen.

Weeds, weeds, weeds. For some reason, this year our front lawn is barraged by chickweed.
I'm going to tackle the 1st of 4 maple tree circles that are supposed to have only periwinkle growing. You can hardly see the blue flowers for all of the chickweed growing in front.

No I haven't tried the disk, good idea. Its just we are older now and cant do as much as use too. Its a sectional and each side has a recliner. I like to move them out from time to time and clean under.
I didn't pay much for the shoes so I'd say I got my money's worth. Felt good on my feet at the time I got them. Looked in very good shape. That's OK I've gotten some really good stuff thrifting and sometimes I'm wondering why I thought I wanted a item. Haven't been going in there to much. Using what I have.

LINDYINDA: Have you tried the small round glider discs for your sofa? Sorry about those shoes -- hope you got your money's worth.

I put wheels I'd bought to use on our couch into get rid of box. They didn't work for what I'd wanted them for. The couch is so heavy to move I thought it would be nice if I could roll it. Oh well!
I'm going to throw a pair of shoes I'd bought at the thrift store into the trash. They looked nice but I've wore them three occasions and the sole is cracking and peeling. Not fit for anyone.

Need to work on the living room today---the coffee table seems to always be a challenge.
