springing into action

The painting is done, and now I am faced with the task of rearranging, and more cleaning. The spackle dust made its way everywhere, it seems, despite drop clothes and such. They weren't the best drop clothes, being made of flimsy plastic, like a grocery bag.

My penchant for saving things becomes increasingly annoying, as surfaces are taken over by stuff. Paper is a constant nemesis. Being a crafter doesn't help, either! But it is what it is.

This is a whole new start (restart?) for my apartment, and little by little, I will get it to where I want it to be.

About two months ago, I had written an affirmation statement about how I wanted my apartment to be newly painted and clean, and an inviting space for people. It seems these things are coming to pass, I just wonder about the inviting space, and who will be the invited!? I'm not much for visitors, except for my best friend,evie, who happens to live right across the hall from me! :~) We've know each other over 34 years, and she is the one person who can come to my place no matter what it looks like. But apparently I am affirming more visitors in my life, so we'll see what happens in these coming months.


  1. It always surprises me how much of a mess needs to be made to make things nice ... this applies to everything.

  2. Wow-I can all too well relate to stuff overtaking everything everywhere.
    But you do have to start somewhere-jsut wish it would stop creeping back up too. :-)

    Your cats are adorable. That Little Guy looks like he can be a handful.


  3. Haha, Knitting Journeyman.. Little Guy is 11 years old, and still acts like a kitten. He goes after Morrison even though Morrison is much bigger.

    Yes, the stuff creeps back! Quickly, too!


Thank you for reading my blog, and spending some time with me... I am truly honored.
