It really struck me yesterday that I really am not totally honest about my surroundings.
When I took the pictures yesterday I avoided all the less the beautiful things that surrounded many of those scenes.
Yesterday should have been an outdoor day.
It was dry but the wind was brisk and that was enough to have me enjoying it from the inside.
I opened the windows so I could hear the wind in the trees.
I looked outside and did take a quick break from my task to take a few photos...
and then it was back inside.
I'm a "shover" at heart.
I always wonder if I had plenty of storage space if I might be a "putter awayer" instead of a shover but I won't know anytime soon.
I take something out. ..
and then put it back where space allows and more often than not..
it becomes quite a problem.
You are seeing my office closet.
It holds office supplies. .
small appliances . .
baking pans ..
photo equipment ...
heavy pots . .
cables for things which I have no idea. .
start up CD's for every electronic item I've ever had...
empty boxes for small electronics in case they die before their warranty expires ..
and a variety of other things.
By the time I took everything out. .
I wanted to walk away.
The task seemed so overwhelming.
I had no option other than to have a box for the thrift shop. .
and a box for the garbage. .
and a box for the attic.
(which we try very hard to avoid)
When it was all finished. .
I was able to put a few things in the closet that had been sitting outside the closet hoping for a spot.
It's still not great ..
but for awhile. .
I'll know where everything is and that is good enough for me.
Today I will get my roots done. .
and maybe tackle the closet at the back of the house. .
all for now. .
