Hi everyone. It’s been over a week since I last posted. Things have been busy. There’s been a lot of decluttering, cleaning, and packing…not necessarily in that order. I’ve also been selling a lot of items online.
We’ve been grocery shopping, banking, and buying more boxes. I don’t like shopping, so we keep that to a minimum. The liquor stores are stingy about giving out boxes here. My big decision once everything is decluttered and packed, is whether to keep the storage it came out of, or to sell it and buy new on the other side. Right now I’m leaning towards keeping it. A lot of our IKEA furniture is older, with thicker shelves than the newer furniture.
Once a week I have a baking day. This week I made whole grain bread by hand. We don’t have a bread machine, nor do we want one. I also made crepes in the afternoon, after doing some packing. Late last week I made a Rhubarb Upside-down Cake as well. We’re well fed around here. 🙂
We also designate one day a week as cleaning and laundry day. It’s full tilt on decluttering and doing housework with Hubby’s help. We split the house into zones and deep clean a zone a week. We vacuum throughout and mop bath and kitchen every week. Sometimes the bath and kitchen get extra treatment throughout the week. Our home is split up into six zones. So over the course of six weeks everything gets deep cleaned, meaning we don’t need to do a spring or fall deep clean.
Then I have a “Me” day every week. I spend time on an artist date (a la Julie Cameron) and visiting with friends.
I reserve a couple of days each week as crafting days for me, but lately they’ve been more decluttering and packing than anything. Plus those are active days for online sales.
Sunday is family and friends day. Meaning I spend time phoning or otherwise catching up with family and friends. I also usually go to church that day.
I’m busy, as usual, and I hope everyone else is keeping healthy and doing well too. Be sure to check out my shop and order before we pack it all away the beginning of March! At that point the shop will be closed until after we move…
