Making changes...

Wednesday, July 19, 2017

I've made a couple of changes to my Spark Page adding one picture of what I see from our house when I wake up early enough, and putting one of my grand baby's quilts on my banner. When the kids were visiting they helped me post the pictures! I'm not sure I can do it again since I didn't write down the steps and I tend to rely on repeated experiences to imprint things into memory. Well it's a start!

Changes at home includes new kitchen appliances, and now I want to clean out the drawers and straighten out the clutter in the nooks and crannies. I think retail therapy is conducive to change sometimes for the better. Our kitchen needs a lot more TLC, but the new appliances have made a major difference in my psyche! I've cleaned out two drawers, and have a couple more to go...

A recent downpour dumped 4 inches of rain outside and a flood inside of two of our lowest rooms, also the utility closet and the mud room where water is not supposed to be! Consequently I have cleaned out and gotten rid of bags of plastic bags and a lot of rags. I really don't need all that many so out they went. I'm rearranging things to keep stuff in buckets so that if it floods again everything won't get wet! We called the county engineer to see what can be done to correct the problem with the road in front of our house. New neighbors eliminated the ditches that run to a major drain, so that their lawns look pretty and are easy to mow. Unfortunately all the water from their houses now runs down our driveway and our drains can't handle everyone else's rain water, especially when it comes as a monsoon!

I see a change in how I feel about myself and feel really good getting something done again. I know it will need repeating, but at least these changes look good and make me feel better because I am accomplishing something that needs doing! Onward and upward with daily Sparks! emoticon

    Glad your kids helped with your spark page, cute quilt.
    Fun to get new appliances, great that it helped you to want to get rid of clutter. Makes everything fresh and clean.
    Sad about the flooding. I hope the county engineer can help in correcting the problem. Good idea to keep your thing in buckets so they will stay dry.

    How awesome that your hard work is resulting in a change in how you feel about yourself! Sometimes we just need that little "boost" to change our perspective and give us the motivation to continue making other changes in our lives!
