Yes, I'm back again to chitter-chatter this very early AM, 5:40 to be exact. Yesterday the plan was that I DID NOT have to leave the house all day long so I was going to paint. But walking into "my room" and seeing the huge mess it was just was not conducive to painting. I've been planning on reorganizing before May but had could not get it together to make it happen. I started around my chair which took me over an hour and ended making more piles but tossing a lot out. Then it started getting overwhelming. Really, my room looked like a hoarders house but contained in one room. Piles and piles of books, financial stuff, art supplies, canvases, magazines, the crap I had accumulated was too much for me to handle. I was almost in a panic to just shove it all back in the corners till another day. I totally understand how hoarders can feel and I don't have the sometimes emotional issues they have. It can be so overwhelming so I sent a text to my oldest and she came to my rescue. Granted we have piles down the hall waiting to be put back but hey, I'm seeing floor now, actual floor and a huge bag full of books to sell. Yes, giving away some of the books I have a hard time with, I LOVE books, all books and that is difficult. We haven't even gotten to one of the cabinets of books. The ones I can't get rid of are the ones that were my momma's and mine from childhood. The sad thing is I haven't even read these books. I cannot buy anymore. I have to admit I am a kind of hoarder but it's all good. Eventually the easel and art supplies will move to my studio at the shop but I have to have an easel here for the urge to create.
I will soon have this space all straightened up to enjoy again, I promise.
