Clearing out My Nest



This time every year I get a yearning to clear out my nest, rearrange and get rid of no longer needed items. However I went about it a little different this year. I have been on a two day cleaning, reorganizing hiatus. I packed away most of my beloved treasures I have picked up over the years, placed them in boxes and stored them in the workshop. Hopefully I will be able to move into the new house this summer or fall. As I look around my home now I left only a few items and things that are used often. I was shocked at how easily and quickly I am able to clean house with less. I laughed out loud when baking bread because I actually had room to prepare the bread. Which is strange for me as I am usually forced to move things around before I can even begin cooking! AHhhhh I am beginning to enjoy this uncluttered life.
Blessings,
Jill

Ahhhh ~ I understand that feeling. I've just been simplifying, too, and found homes for 15 large bags of unnessary items. Feels so nice ~ and the recipients are happy girls too!

Smiles,

We have been working on the same thing here! It's a slow progress, as the holiday season trashes our house since I work on a lot of things for the shop here...But we're getting there & I am SOOO ready to have room to bake too! :)
Have a great day,
