Found while working on the house today –
a lost can of Pringles turned ant farm underneath a bed
another stash of “special” hand-made paper squirreled away for the “perfect” project – being turned into art cards right now. No more waiting for “perfect”
a bag of miscellaneous canned goods bought for Thanksgiving – obviously not needed. Not things we use regularly so going to the food bank.
a stash of treasures that my dogs were hoarding under the sofa. Ugh. No further description provided. You can thank me later.
three bags of clothes that someone gave me. I forgot about them and need to go through them. Or maybe not. We’ll see if it ends up in the giveaway tomorrow.
another sack of plastic grocery bags to be recycled. Why can’t I remember the reusable ones that I have?
a bee in a plastic bread bag that my dog dragged out of the trash. Maybe the bee found me? In any case I got stung.
Also decluttered today – working in my son’s room as he ponders his life journey and what he needs and wants to carry with him on the way…
- 3 shirts
- a bulletin board
- 3 sweaters
- a winter hat leftover from his football and baseball days
- a storage box (contents tossed)
I just know that there is a simpler, more intentional life in our future. I’m just hacking through the wilderness that is our present in search of the beautiful.
Honestly, most of the time, right now isn’t so bad. There is beautiful along the way. Sometimes it’s just hard to see underneath the clutter!
