I’m not a hoarder but…

Sarah from live to list in her comment encouraged me to take before and after photos.

Well, it will be ages before I can take “after” photos. But here are the before photos of my junk room. And not before-before photos, because it was originally a study and I could actually sit at the desk. Now, well the photos speak for themselves.

Can we just back to that desk! And have a close-up of the book in the desk. 20130528-204816.jpg
Thanks!

Is that “Paper Flow”? The book on dealing with paper? How ironic! It is being buried by paper. No flow then?

Anyway, let’s continue our journey around the room.20130528-205020.jpg

The bare shelves are the result of recent decluttering.

And finally, walking out of the room, with a backward glance:20130528-205539.jpg
Now time for today’s log:

  • 1. Did I have a laugh today?
  • Yes.

  • 2. Did I give someone a hug today?
  • Yes.

  • 3. Did I do a relaxation activity, such as read a book, have a bath, light a candle, dream, call someone and have a chat, sit in the sun?
  • Stared out the window during breakfast. Went to Pilates.

  • 4. Did I do something good for someone else or be nice to someone?
  • Yes, helped someone with family difficulties.

    Today’s decluttered items = Some craft paper. But as the above photos show, I have a lot to go.

    A misty old morning

    It’s a misty morning. This brings its own beauty.

    Mist is something we don’t see often in these parts. And this is the first one of autumn.

    Here’s the view I stare at as I have my breakfast.

    And from the outside:

    I am feeling very calm. A wonderful start to the day. This definitely counts as my “do a relaxation activity” for today.
