There is Progress
Good morning! How was your week? Can you tell I'm in a major teal color-loving mood based on that lovely photo above? It's been going strong for over a year now.
The weather has been kind of dreary and blah for a few days, so that makes being stuck inside boxing up belongings and decluttering that much easier. Dare I say we are done with decluttering? Maybe? I'm not sure, but the bulk of the madness is over. This week we dropped off the 8th and 9th carload of donations. I've been working on my studio room this week and am so close to be done. Rooms with closets take me four days on average. We started this process super early because I didn't want a mad dash near the moving date. My husband and I tend to work 3-5 hours a day sharing a pleasant lunch break. We are both exhausted by dinner time.
Because I'm 'working', my creative pursuits have taken a back seat. I'm showing up for my art journaling pages whenever I get a chance (below photo). But the daily sketching/watercolor challenge is on hiatus until after the move. My daily reading is suffering as well.
One of my goals is to NOT wish this process away. The old me would wish it away, the new me wants to live each day fully and joyfully. I find satisfaction knowing that each box packed is one box closer to being done. You know I love notebooks, so I wrote up 18 sections of this house and as each section is completed, cross it off and write the date of completion. There is slow documented progress.
