The weekend is coming. Where will you spend it?
Personally, I am a woman with two missions. One inside, one out.
Mission One looks like a long list of what-simply-must-get-done-inside-of-my-house this weekend. Remember this? Yep. So do I. Or I am in the process of remembering it again anyway. I'm back on it with a mission. An end date even.
I've gotten pretty firm with myself and I broke down the house into areas that need work. (If you must know, every room and every closet are on the list. Yes, even the backyard.) I've assigned myself one to three spaces per week, no excuses. By June I'll be free of all this clutter! Eeek! That's my plan anyway.
Are you still simplifying or did you, too, fall off the simplicity wagon? Climb back on with me! I'm so ready for the space (physical and emotional) that comes with letting go.
Oh, but there is still Mission Two. You see, it's also spring. The ramps and nettles are up. Through my windows I can hear the birds calling. And I really want to be outside. Constantly.
The weekend around here is supposed to be cold and rainy. (Some might even say "miserable" for late April.) But despite the work going on in my closets – and despite the questionable weather – I'm planning to get out in it just the same. A little foraging, a little hiking, a little gardening, a little something – one way or another. Heck, just having tea on the porch isn't a bad way to spend the morning, even if I do have to wear my mittens.
What about you? Will you join me? Which mission will you take on this weekend?
