A sense of peace
I don't know why I feel I have to title my posts and hope that at the end of it, the title matches the content. Anywho, it was a great cloudy day in my little neck of the woods. I did manage to catch up on some sleep. a 3hr uber power nap. Much needed as I battle crazy insomnia at times. (Are those violin's I hear in the distance?)
I have tons of little projects running around in my brain fighting to be the first in line. But they all must take a back seat as I continue to declutter the things in my domain that are just things and taking up way to much space and energy. I have tons of books in the back of the mom mobile to be donated-tomorrow. I can also see that I will be taking at least one trip to see if I can consign some "stuff". But in the mean time- what is "mean-time" any way, I'll be in Dolly's room organizing or should I say reorganizing and packing up stuff that no longer plays a role in her little life.
I do have to pat myself on the back and give myself a little credit. I managed to prep the 10 gallon tank in the play room for fish b.k.a. filled it with H2O. This has been an ongoing project. All the school supplies are organized in the play room. But, I must also slow the back patting down and start with the head scratching. Why? Because I realized the huge cabinet that I have the supplies in- needs to house my sewing machine, craft and sewing stuff and I may move it to a different room AND the gargantuan armoire upstairs is full of my sewing stuff. Not only that, the armoire is housing China and dishes that make me happy that need to be moved to my kitchen-an idea I had years ago, and one that popped back into mind thanks to Nate Burkus.
Since the Kitchen is one of my major offices here at the Homeschool Academy, it has to not only function but, also inspire.
That being said, I most acknowledge our newest playmate, Janssen. She is clearly older than me and holds 88 weighted keys of ivory. It has been a dream come true to have her come live with us. I have been waiting for her my whole life.
