Today I post with a practical idea that helps me enormously. Two of my favorite bloggers, Jon Katz on Bedlam Farm and Maria Wulf on Fullmoonfiberart.com inspired the following idea. Jon posted that Maria put up shelves to enable him to glance and see clean clothes on hand.
My head rang bells and I asked son John if he would put up shelves. Once upon a yesterday I did my own carpentry but aging prohibits and so I said I wait till he finishes pushing out walls and windows of our home. While waiting, the thought is a Given, why not see if the idea floats by taking out the drawers?
I did and this is what is now. I have thanked Jon and Maria and shown them this. For any of my peers still navigating these waters with me, I say try this. The drawers become too heavy right now for me and even with no sense of fashion, sameness becomes lethal daily. Instigating some zest is crucial simply to keep breathing.
Also included is the chest next to my bedroom chair by giving me added shelf space for more tops but also shelves for papers and work in review. Neatly stowed and at hand and yet organized to some extent. Finding old sweats like new has increased my wardrobe by almost another 50% says my eldest son!
Simplifying is what everyone wishes to do, but I like my friendly stuffs at hand! Yet common sense says there is no energy to call upon lady, so get real!
But I tell you this. I truly don’t know whence cometh my desire to make bread today that make grown men cry as I wrote once, who remember what real bread tasted like, and the soup which I put into the crock pot last night to slow cook for a ‘clean the fridge vegetable soup’ that a spoonful of shredded cheese and a spoonful of sour cream make taste like gourmet fare for lunch.
New cost? 1 can of diced tomatoes. These are the talents my mentor talked of that we should multiply and divide throughout eternity. These are the ways that we do and we will be shown how. Start where you are and you will be shown how. Evolution. . . each one teach one.
That is what it is all about.
