It is beautiful today. The sun is shining, the remaining leaves on the trees are slowly finding their way to the ground...Moving on! There is so much to be done to get ready for the inevitable! SNOW. The flowerbeds are clean, the grass is cut, the leaves are raked. One job remains. We have to clean the garage. Now, while we were moving in, the man's pride and joy was a repository of postponed decisions. Just what he will use and what he will donate is completely up to him, at this moment. I know that we have to carve out a spot for the snow blower, the lawn mower, the garden tools, the things that actually deserve a home in a garage. Like vehicles! Add to that trade show displays, extra gadgets that he sells for a living and several antiques? It will be quite the process I can assure you. The man has also promised to paint one room this weekend. Which one? Who knows? Who cares? It all needs to be done! Where we start doesn't really matter. We will end up getting it all done eventually. When we finish painting a room, I will order window treatments, buy anything we may need to complete the room and move on to the next. I like to keep a simple house without a lot of clutter, and often I find that my decorating involves getting rid of things rather than adding things to the room. Less is more.
