Housework goes so much better with an apron on.
My room was just as much a disaster as ever, but took less than half the time to clean that it usually does - because since I organized over the summer, I know exactly where everything is *supposed* to go. I may not put it there on a daily basis but when it comes to clearing up, at least I have some structure to work with.
Conrad acts like we've moved to a new place every time I clean. He has to sniff around and explore all the nooks and crannies as if for the first time ever.
I still have far more fabric and yarn than I have space in which to store them.
Candles make everything better. So do fresh flowers.
I'm much more motivated to clean on days like yesterday - grey and blustery - than when it's sunny outside. I'm not sure why that is?
It's finally beginning to feel like Christmas. I think maybe I just needed some order in my life.
