The combination of the hottest summer in recent history, two vacations, my son collecting items for his college apartment and all of us working full-time led to an almost explosive situation of dust, clutter, dog hair, unexplainable sticky spots and smells.
Friday night we got Carson all moved into his apartment and I was up bright and early on Saturday to start my fall cleaning. I purged, purged, purged! And it felt GOOD! I sorted out piles of old mail and papers, threw out a heap of mending I was never going to get to, chucked a couple unfinished projects I felt guilty about every time I moved them. My recycle bin was overflowing with magazines and catalogs and my donate pile was delivered to various places immediately.
Sunday night it felt so good to sit on the couch and plan some new projects while every surface was clear and pledge-wiped. I'm working on a new quilt and hopefully I'll be able to get some sewing time in now that the nights will be getting longer.
