This is the view across the room this evening. A peaceful place in my home to let my eyes rest.
I’m not going to lie. There aren’t many corners of my home right now that I would call restful. Busy, busy, busy; every single corner. It seems the more I try to create a haven; the more I struggle with it. It just doesn’t come easy for me now days.
The whole dynamic of our home life shifted after The Honey retired in 2009. I remember days when he’d get up and go to work; for me that meant—I’ve got a set number of hours to get things done. Then once he came through those doors; the shift was togetherness. Supper, evening routine, shower and bed.
It’s not like that for me now. After all these years I’ve still not adjusted to having him home ALL. THE. TIME. It’s like I’m always on a break. Time has gotten away from me and so has my house work…
There are things I have wanted to do… and didn’t. (here/ UPDATES) It won’t be long Fall will be here; and we’ll be entering into the last quarter of this year! I’m finally getting some work done in my craft room. Slowly, but surely, I’m getting some of my busy corners organized and settled.
I found this list of Pre-Holiday Room by Room Cleaning (tasks) Plan @ Sunny Simple life… I pinned it am using it! If you’ve not read Elaine’s blog—go there! She has wonderful household tips on cleaning, organizing and MYO (make you own) cleaning supplies!
I seem to get this way every year about this time! Fall is the time of year, to me …like a second SPRING CLEANING! Checking the list that was made so early in the year…last minute preparations- Getting ready for Winter and of course all the Holidays that are coming with it.
Is it like that for you?
Til next time, Be Blessed!
Be anxious for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanks giving let your request be made unto to God; And the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension will guard your heart and minds in Christ Jesus. ~~ Philippians 4:6-7
