Just Life

the chore(s) & the reward.

…another week, another to-do list and another “focus chore“. this week it was cleaning out my desk, and, because the weather has been glorious and I really do want to get outside, also cleaning up the deck. I was ruthless. a heaping trashcan full of junk. in the spirit of last week’s confessions, I admit to still having markers from when the girls did science fair projects (what, ten years ago?) and enough office supplies to open up a store (but none that I could see myself using in my lifetime – although I did keep the mega box of manila file folders…I’m sure there are going to be a few filing and organizing chores where I’ll be glad I have them!). and then I was on a roll, so I also packed up two boxes of books to donate. the resulting free space feels so good.

my desk, after. I never would’ve dreamed to photograph those open doors before!

…and the deck cleanup? obviously its own reward.

knitting the cecily’s lace cardigan in the suggested alpaca & silk, colorway 102 (raisin). lovely!
