LilyFestre Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House (1682* d) RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House 24 Feb 18

The weather in north central PA has been so very strange for this time of the year. Last week it was pushing 70 degrees and then we had a very fast moving storm that dumped enough ice and snow to shut things down for the day.   Now it's all rainy and in the high 30s. My yard is a super highway of MUD. However, with the odd weather, we have seen flocks of geese returning, a friend recently posted a photo of a bear under her feeder and a photo of a robin. Today we noticed some flowers about to bloom in the back yard....small whitish ones...not sure what they are though. I think Mother Nature is going to have a very good laugh about all this sometime in the next month or so. We really haven't had winter to speak of.

Today we decluttered the entire family of excess hair...LOL...we all got haircuts this morning. It's amazing to me how getting a good haircut (taking care of oneself) or decluttering a section of my home make me feel equally fabulous!   :)

My crazy work audits are over but this week had me training a new hire and doing 3 additional intakes so I'm dragging a little bit. I think if I can catch a nap here shortly, I may get some work done tonight. If not, there's always tomorrow but then again, I've been asked to go out for the afternoon with someone. I would like to go out but I'd also like the time at home so we shall see. Decisions! Decisions! ;)

Pete and I are trying to decide how to handle the room sewing room will soon be Jeremiah's bedroom. He thinks we should let Jeremiah pick the color. I think we should pick out 5 somewhat neutral colors and let him pick that and THEN he can pick out what he wants for his blankets and such. He loves one of the Avenger characters a ton at the moment but as we all know, that will be fleeting. I don't mind changing out linens but I do mind the thought of having to repaint every time he changes his mind about his favorite character/animal.   If we were to paint the walls in a neutral color, those changes in his likes would be MUCH easier to handle and continually look least that's my thought on the matter!   Currently that room is a very soft pink color so it absolutely will be changed for Jeremiah. Jeremiah's room was designed as a nursery with gender neutral colors as we didn't know what gender our child would be. The walls are a soft buttery yellow and there is a soft grass green carpet on the floor. I love the looks of it the way it is and will not need to make any changes to the walls or floor when that becomes my sewing room.

Speaking of sewing, I am ever closer to finishing the House of Care Quilt. Next weekend, I will be joining a group of friends for a day of sewing (interrupted by orchestra practice) and then an evening of theater, I am looking forward to that day with great anticipation! :)

I did declutter the front seat of my car this weekend and left office in stellar shape for the week ahead...I say those things count as they make my life run more smoothly.

Enjoy your week friends!
