The fountain has gone to the curb and a couple of small mats to a big trash bag so far. I have new garden flags to put up for the season and an old windchime to schlep to the curb. The hummers and butterflies found the lantana baskets within an hour of my getting home with them and are having fly-throughs on the patio. Fun to watch!

Enjoyed working on the patio so much that I am off to buy two more lantana hanging baskets to go out there. Guess I am making clutter instead of getting rid of it. Ma did haul my small defunct fountain out to the curb for me though and someone drove buy and rescued it. It will make a cute planter which was my purpose in hanging on to it. Better them than me.

I am making on my reading stack which also means I am making progress on my Goodreads goal. I found that there were several books in my reading stack that were reference books and keepsakes so I replaced the to a bookshelf and removed an equal number of reading books. This is fun!

I made more progress in the office yesterday so today I'll continue that AND wash the bags of clothes we'd set aside ages ago for Goodwill. I'll try to get all the clean ones out tonight, and if I miss the cutoff they will at least go in the car to be delivered tomorrow.

I did some shredding yesterday. I was able to clean all of the stray papers from my table/desk. I am also hoping to rearrange some things in the kitchen. I am still having some issues with my breathing so how much I accomplish will be determined by that.

My day is not nearly so hard. I moved all of the various birdseed bags, etc. into their proper places from the garage, filled all the feeders with seed and water containers with water, scrubbed and filled the big bird bath, gathered some clutter from the patio and added it to my giant bag of garbage from the house--all ready for the garbage pickup Monday, showered and dressed, swiped the bathroom [I just love having a clean bathroom], and am thinking how I get to relax the rest of the day. The best thing about having the clean areas is not having to spend the entire weekend cleaning.

Cleaning out four boxes that are left from when I had to shove my entire bedroom, bathroom and closet into boxes after a tree fell on the master bedroom. I started with 24 boxes, filled with stuff, that the work guys just threw in the boxes. There might be makeup, clothes, books, anything you can think of. It has been a huge mess, and I am finally finishing up. It is somewhat amusing to find a tree branch or two in the boxes as I empty them. Makes me remember how far I have come!!

I am dumping way more than I am saving, so it is all good.

My decluttering today will be my side of the bathroom and sink. It gets so disorganized so easily. And then it becomes a mess.

We just got back from dropping my girls off at summer camp, so we de-cluttered a bit by just getting their camp gear out of the house. Going to spend tonight working between some paperwork that needs processed for work and tidying up some piles of home paperwork around the house. Hope everyone had a great weekend!

I did it! I got it all put away. I also worked on projects that have been sitting around needing done. I then started on a closet and now there is nothing in there. My son said "Now what are we going to put in there. I would like nothing but I think maybe sorting and putting my Christmas stuff in there instead of storage would be a good idea. I'm working on becoming a minimalist. I've almost been a hoarder all my life and I'm tired of it. In the general chat today I wrote about how I look at something and think "What will my kids do with this if I died?" It makes me think about it's worth and then it's easier to let go of. I guess I'm gabby today, sorry.

Procrastination.
I know I shouldn't do it, and I really want to get the bedroom under control, but it always seems like tomorrow will be a better day to do it. Tonight we went out for dinner, so that's my excuse. Sigh.
I did put a load of laundry in the washer, so that's sort of a win. At least tomorrow I won't have to dig around for a matching pair of socks or clean underwear! :-)

At work---I have two carts of material that I need to get sorted, recorded, and then sent to another area. Started the project Friday, I should be able to get done today.

At home-Clear the "tool table". Last week I emptied three tool boxes and started organizing, need to put things back and clear the table I laid everything out on.

I've kind of gone off the de cluttering track the last few days so today I'm starting off with the basics again. Making sure all the rubbish is out and the recycling is done [rubbish collection is early tomorrow morning], making sure all washing up is done and put away. Weather forecast for tomorrow is good so tonight before bed I'll put the laundry on ready to put out to dry tomorrow.

If you always do what you always did - you'll always get what you always got!

Just a small project today: clearing the clutter off the bathroom vanity and then keeping it clear!

A hard thing for me to do is to get rid of MORE craft items. I decided my beads have to go. Down to 2 crafts after having so many I filled a room with them. I'm still working on clothes but it gets smaller everyday. Yvonne

Shoes--I really don't want to part with some of those heels I know I will never wear again! 2 pair gone so far.
