We were supposed to wake up to rain, but it's been a beautiful day, so far and I've been out and about a bit in it. So very humid already, though.

Lawn mowed at the folks' house, missing lawnmower part located, thankfully. Grocery shopping done, got rid of a few things in the back yard, cleared some of the surprise trees that have sprouted, have some catnip drying for the critters.

Threw a beef roast and some ground chuck in the slow cooker yesterday, so will add that to the chicken tenders I made on Saturday and have everything I need protein-wise for the week.

Last load of laundry in the drier, about to do dishes and then it will be time for work. so very thankful that I am still working from home and I sincerely hope this will last for the rest of the year at least, if not longer.

Tomorrow I'm going to grab a garbage cart, park it outside my back door and start tossing again. At this point in time, I think I have lost the emotional attachment to many of the things I was keeping. I will always have those memories; I don't necessarily need a physical reminder and I feel the need for less clutter and more space.

For any who read my blog with any kid of regularity, it probably seems like I'm forever going on about getting rid of things and probably seems like I'm a hoarder. I'm not, but I kind of am a pack rat - keeping some things for sentimentality and some things for "someday", neither of which is actually serving me these days.

It will be a slower process and that I don't mind at all. Any step in that direction now is more than there was yesterday or the day before.

Maybe if I do it this way, by the time I CAN retire, I'll be where I want to be!

Time to spark joy once more!!!

Be safe, be happy, be healthy!!!

    I hear you. I recently got rid of cards, letters and memorabilia I had saved for years and couldn’t part with. I told myself it was time and I realized no one can take those memories from me. I will always have that. No regrets either. I can’t keep everything forever.

    Good decluttering plans. I find that if I am attached to something sentimentally, but it doesn't serve a purpose to keep it, I take a picture of it, then toss or repurpose.

    good luck.
