More often than not I have dishes piled up on the counter…even with a dishwasher in the house.
At least this pile is on the clean side.
We’re busy painting the basement getting the house in tip top shape – out with the chocolate brown on the right, in with the lighter tan on the left.
Gas Prices? Please don’t go any higher – my tank wasn’t even empty when I filled up.
We’ve recently started started shopping at Costco and having frozen organic fruit means smoothies!!
Oh to be 14 again and think these earrings were cool to wear….
Along with spring cleaning projects I normally get around to, the thought of moving more of my junk doesn’t appeal to me. Once I started going through it though….I realized how much emotional clutter I was keeping.
Some of it hurtful. Because whether or not it ever crossed your mind, I was often picked on an teased. My nose was to big, my hair to curly, I had both glasses and braces, my clothes weren’t “cool” enough. I didn’t have a boyfriend through most of highschool. This pile of letters were ones written by highschool girlfriends constantly reminding me of my faults in their “trying to be helpful” way. All of a sudden those hurt feelings came rushing back….and why was I keeping these things?!
It was cathartic to toss them all into the garbage.
I’ve begun to realize that emotional clutter is a thing, and although some of it can be painful to let go, that I begin to feel more…calm and relaxed when I get rid of the things in life that are holding me back.
I love the earrings. They bring back floods of memories from middle school!!!!
My friend Pam shared your recipe. I made the brownies tonight and love it! Will be sharing some with my Pastor who has diabetes and a friend of mine who’s vegetarian. Can I freeze these? Hope to learn more of these healthy recipes soon.
@Liz Perez, Do you mean the black bean brownies? I’m sure you can freeze them, but what I have noticed is that the texture of beans do change when frozen, so while the taste will be the same, it may have a slightly different texture. Glad you like them!
Its so refreshing to see your perfectly un-perfect house. So “real”. Love your blog!
