making things easier

There comes a time when you realize that you spend most of your "free time"cleaning. I have begun to think that is all I do on the weekends. Instead of sewing or going out to enjoy life.... I clean. It's not the most horrible thing in the world.. but it gets very tefious... and if I don't clean all weekend I regret it during the week when I can't find things.
So instead of just cleaning this weekend I decided to get rid of things. I have hopefully made some deals on some items that are worth money... and some things that really are not are making a trip to the goodwill and to the dump.
Today I finished removing all my stuff out of the old "closest" which is a small bedroom. I now have the chore of trying on and deciding what needs to go... what I wear and what I can part with. I am not very good at getting rid of things..... but I am VERY good and buying stuff.. heehee! I already took a few bags of clothes to goodwill.... and who knew... I don't miss any of them, since I never wore them anyway.
I hope in the next weeks I can finish this task and make life a little less burdened... easier to keep tidy = less cleaning = more time to do things I want to do. :)

Night all!

Drip Drop

I am having on of those nights where I don't want to fall asleep. I sit and listen to the rain. I think the rain is one of my very favorite things. The air here has been full of smoke from the fires in B.C for days. The rain has washed the horrible smell away... I'm sitting in bed, windows open. All I can hear is drip, drop, drip, blop... all I can smell is that unmistakealbe fresh sweet smell of the rain.

Night all,
Melanie

when I get it.... I get it..

SO... My cold turned into an infected wisdom tooth.. which I then had to go to an emergency dental. *sigh* That was NOT fun at all. I will never go there again. I've looked like a lopsided chipmunk for the past 4 days and have been in horrid pain. At least today it is starting to get a little better. When I get sick I really get it.
So yesterday I did venture out to the Home Depot and got a few plastic totes for storing things. They were on sale.. and Purple. Two of my favorite things.... heehee. I want to get sewing again soon but have to get my studio back in order. I am getting rid of my TV and TV stand.. which pains me.. but it's for the best! lol. It takes up alot of space and I can use that space for my fabric... which I think is more important than the TV.. heehee.
Not much else is new here, I am so behind on everything being sick for almost 3 weeks now. Oh well, I guess the mess is not going to go anywhere! lol!!

Happy Monday everyone!

Weddings and nyquil.

Don't worry, I'm not getting married! Lol.
Spent this past weekend in Sylvan lake with Brads family. His Dad and stepmother decided to get married. The wedding was a small but crazy affair. The day after I got home I ended up coming down with a cold/flu. There were loads of germy little kids at the wedding so am not impressed being sick. I've not been sick in over a year.. been SO careful to stay away from sick people..... I knew I should have brought my hand sanitizer. Lol. But I'm at work and plugging away at least.. full of Cold FX and dayquil.

Not much else new here. I have been trying to simplify life by cleaning things out and getting rid of things I don't use or need. It is a good thing and makes life alot less cluttered.

I've got an extreme itch to sew some bears. I will have to clean up my studio a bit and decide what to start on soon :)

Hope all is well with everyone out there!
Love and hugs,
Melanie
