Quilt With Us

A big wind blew 2012 out and left us with several inches of snow  and very cold tempertures to boot.  Right now 30 degree's would feel like a heat wave.  Well, what can I say it's Winter in Maine.  Cold temps, snow and winds are common this time of year (like many of the States) so we just have to grin and bear it. 

I have been in the mood for some changes today. I get really sick of looking at the same things in the same places all the time so every once in awhile when the mood hits, I move pictures, knick knacks, and even furniture from one room to the other and it almost makes me feel like I have new things.  I'm also packing some boxes to take to Goodwill.  If I haven't worn it or used it in a year or two it's leaving this house and the sooner the better.  I believe in the old saying "less is more". 

So Happy New Year and Blessings to all of you.

Boy oh boy, I'd love to do a re-arrange of things.  i used to do this at least once a month when I was younger....it would make my kids crazy.  Plus is gives us a way to get a really good clean on.   Now wrap up nice and warm and stay inside..

The hardest thing I have about cleaning is listening to my DH ask me why am I throwing such & such away.  Before he retired I would clean out closets and just give stuff to charity or throw it away if it was stained, etc. & he never knew the difference.  Now he wants to keep everything.  The other day I decided to organize my hall closet to make better room for winter coats and he about had a stroke when I asked him if it was ok to toss out a sweat stained baseball cap.  He probably has at least 25 baseball caps, the majority of which he has never worn or ever will wer, so it isn't like he wouldn't have one if that one had been tossed in the trash.  Drives me batty!

So we will continue until the feeling of cleaning goes away..or we run out of steam. Of we want to sell that is. clean, clean, clean!! Giveaway!!  Ok, I am tired now, I may have to sit a while......

By the sounds of things we are all pretty much on the same page on the clean-up for 2013. Laura that lady who pitches 27 things each month from each room must have a huge house or is a hoarder.  But the concept of going through each room and pitching something would be worth a try.  Simplify is what I'm trying to do as well. It sure makes cleaning allot easier.

Welcoming in 2013 with many changes on my mind as well.  I read somewhere of a woman who goes through her home at least once a month and will pitch 27 things from each room to be donated to Goodwill.  I think I may give it a try!

I think my "theme" for 2013 is one I am going to keep for quite awhile......
