I really want to take down all the holiday decorations - but will force myself to wait until tomorrow. It is raining here (thank goodness - we need it)
I'll have a quiet New Year's Eve, and have a holiday walk tomorrow planned with my walking buddies. Good way to start the new year.

Today I went to the store and bought my husband's snacks. I bought veggies and sugar free jello for me.

I did dishes, made the bed and will do my wifely duty of watching football!

End of the month and end of the year.......in looking back I think I did very well with purging stuff out of my house. It feels good and I've gotten lots of comments from friends and family visiting.
But, I still have more to do. A lot of it is MAJOR, so I'll have to plan carefully.

Thoroughly purged and organized the master bedroom closet.
Everything is easy to find and neat as a pin, and of course I cleaned the bedroom too... It will be easy to maintain.

My kitchen counters are looking good - I put a smaller fruit bowl in the corner - saves space. I went to turn the radio on this am and had to look for it - but I will get used to it.

Tomorrow the dogs get to go back to their own home...... It is so cold here and nice to have 2 furry warm dogs on the bed at night.
But, tomorrow afternoon I plan to vacuum, dust, and get the final holiday stuff put away....but I will leave the lights up outside until after New Years Eve.

I also plan to get back on my regular eating plan and not eat all the holiday stuff.
We went to a nice dinner last night and I was good - had a piece of Salmon and some delicious roasted carrots. So I consider that pretty good!!

Yesterday I put all the sweets in a plastic container and froze them. Out of sight - out of mind. Today I plan to clear my counters of all that I am not using (like a large drip coffee maker). I have a small house and clear counters are a good thing.

Christmas is over and I now have several plastic bins of cookies, fudge, candies, etc all over my kitchen counter. They were not eaten this year - guess everyone is watching what they eat.
Maybe I can freeze some of it - or donate?

Anyway the kitchen is all put back into order and counters wiped, I still need to mop the floor.
I just finished laundry and feel like things are getting back to order.
Still have my brother's 2 dogs here for a couple more days.....but my brother and SIL are very good about coming over to walk them 2X a day.
They are very sweet dogs.

Watching tv last night and they had an "expert" on giving gifts. They seemed to say the giver felt it was impersonal but the one who gets it loves them!

I am finishing up some pecans to take on my trip to New Orleans.

Found my DDs baby ring from Alaska. Has a tiny gold nugget. When I mentioned it to her she begged for it. Hmm. She is 32 now. Will she take care of it? LOL

I will hem some pants today.

I'm with you Diana - I am retired too and I am busier than I ever thought I would be. I keep telling myself that I need to reduce some of my obligations.
I think in the new year - that is going to be my resolution. It will give me more time to exercise and spend time with good friends..
=====
Tonight I got almost all my gifts wrapped and need to now clean up the mess of paper, tape, ribbon etc. I still need to buy 1 or 2 more small gifts so that everyone has something to open. ( I'm thinking gift cards.....)

I used to make so many. Now I do much more simple because although retired I seem to have even more to do than when I worked!

Today I cleaned up the house and did the dishes. I hemmed a pair of pants. One down about 4 to go!

Looks very festive with the lights on the tree and everything decorated.

The weather is starting to warm up thank goodness

I started my holiday baking today. My niece is coming for a visit and she will want gingerbread cut out cookies (frosted of course).
I made the dough and will bake tomorrow or the next day.
They are so much work !!! and I usually make at least 2 other kinds of cookies - fortunately I give them all away.
I still have shopping to do - but it will all be gift cards - thank goodness.
-------------
The house is cleaned for company and the guest room is all ready - just need to
do a once over of the second bathroom.
Another good thing is that I don't need to do any meal prep - we will be going to all her favorite places to eat while she is here for a short visit.
I feel pretty organized......

It will be nice for you to make your home your own.

Today I spent two hours going through boxes and moving them away from a wall in our 100 year old home that we have discovered have bees! Need to take care of them in the winter. Husband has a bee suit. We couldn't get anyone to come get them! I won't be anywhere near them!

I'm ahead on my Christmas because my husband is out of the country. I get so much more done when he is gone! LOL.

So, I went to work on my storage again, I'm only doing a little each day but making progress!

Today I got a bag of little items I had in my 'birthday box' that I won't be using. A sorority sister has a slew of grandchildren of all ages. So, she can use them as stocking stuffers and I make room!

I found a couple of temporarily lost items that I brought to my little house. A lovely pagoda perfume bottle of my mother's and a music box I bought in Sorrento Italy. I like getting organized!

Beds are made and I'm kind of still getting the guest room ready for my Xmas company.
I'm also waiting for the gardener and need to stay close to home. (to pay him etc.)

Don't know when the company (plus 2 dogs) is arriving. They haven't told me - When I asked, they didn't have a date yet......so
I'm prepping and will be all ready.

Travelbug are they coming this early?

Today it is very cold out and will be in the low 30s this week! Yikes. The big house needs repairs on the heater and DH is overseas so I can't work in the house long before I get pretty cold.

However, I was able to move a lot of things around. I folded and put away quilts. I found my Christmas art to put out at the "little house" where we are living.

More Christmas gifts came in the mail so I'm wrapping again. I took items to charity and decided to go through the 'birthday box" I keep. I have many items in there that the grandkids have outgrown or that I just hadn't used. I will take them to the local family service office. I'm sure they will get some use out of them at Christmas.

Happy holidays everyone!

I'm still working on the storage at my big house. I am organizing my holiday boxes as I go through them.

Today I have discarded several empty boxes and taken items to charity. I have given several items to people I knew could use them. Quite a job that is going to take months to complete. But once it is done I'll be a happy organized camper! LOL

I am almost done with my gifts and wrapping them.

We are renovating our kitchen, family room and dining room so the house is a complete mess for the next two weeks. Fingers crossed that the work gets completed before Christmas Eve which is when we have our family celebration. Once the work is complete - I will be able to unpack these boxes from our move and get organized again!!!

Hi All - December is here and it is going to be a month to really focus on keeping organized.
I'm baking cookies right now and will take them to the pot luck at my knitting group at my neighborhood library.

How are you going to stay organized this month????
