Subject: RE: BS: February Declutter - keep the faith!
Hi, Maggie. Your last post reminded me of this "Cathy" comic from many years ago saved on my fridge:
Monday: Vowed to slow down my crazy pace and reconnect with the simple joys of life.
Tuesday: Spent day trying to clean off the patio to make room for a chair.
Wednesday: Spent day trying to clean out the garage to make room for the junk from the patio.
Thursday: Spent day trying to clean the basement to make room for the junk form the garage.
96 hours into my new simple life, and the only activity I've eliminated is sitting down.

We got about 3 inches of snow yesterday, but I haven't run the snowblower yet. I don't have to be anywhere else until Tuesday night, so I may just leave it there for a while.

One of my Secret Santa gifts was a 14 Bean mix so I'm using it to make baked bean. I soaked the beans last night and mixed up the sugar/molasses sauce this morning. They're halfway thru the 5 hour baking, and the house smells delicious.
