Moreover, I had started to miss darling Beverly's Pink Saturday an awful lot! But you know, during the cold months I'm more of a 'white' person ;))
This has been a week of very hard work... well, I'm not one who usually moans about things to do, but after six long months of packing, selecting, getting rid of things, organizing, etc., living in such a messy and let's admit, not-that-pristine home, I'd definitely need some rest!! But the 'right' time will come...
Now we have two weeks only to vacate this house, so you might understand why I'm kinda absent from your blogs! I do my best to update my blog regularly and to return as many comments as I can, but time is at a premium here!! I'm doing almost all by myself, because it's me that have filled this house to the brim, and it's me that have to get rid of my stuff.
And that is the thorny subject! I definitely am a keeper, and I hate to throw away! Plus, I grow fond of things for the memories or people they evoke... and that is an even bigger problem when you have to downsize! Sometimes it takes days for me to decide for a single object- to keep or not to keep, that is the question!... I bet this is a problem of many of you too. People around me seem to not care.
And what about my 'precious' stuff? My vintage or antique treasures, my creations, my art supplies of all kind? That stuff makes me really happy! So I should keep that. Absolutely. I cannot discard things that make me feel good!
However, I had to part with something I liked... but well, as a dear blog friend of mine suggested, having to do that was the only way I had to free myself from what cluttered my life, and keep only what I really love and cherish. Not to be buried in things. And I'd add, to make room for new spiritual qualities- order, harmony, beauty, simplicity...
And you? Are you a keeper or not? Do you have some tips for all of us packrats?
