What I've been up to ...




Hey there everyone! Guess you've been wondering where I've been? Well, if you are a follower of my other blog, "Witch Cats Blog," then you already know that I have been busting my behind for the past two weeks, with two extra vacation days from work, to thoroughly clean up our extremely messy attic! Let's face it, I have been giving it a "lick and a promise" for five whole years now, but everytime I would begin this very huge project, I would get so frusterated that I would just quit after a day or two. Not to mention that I can no longer tolerate the hot temperatures since peri-men, so I only attempted to dare go near the attic in either fall or winter months.

Now, anyone who knows me at all, knows that I am just like my mother ~ a clean fanatic!!! I must admit that I am the kinda gal who would much rather clean up the dirty dishes than cook the actual meal! That being said, after a couple of week nights after work and weekends, four whole days devoted to the only room in the house which looked like a cyclone had hit it, and a few injuries to my fingers and toes (yes, I said toes! LOL), this is how far I haven gotten currently ...

Before ...


and after ...


And as for hubby and kids, well, they were just more than happy to stay out of mom's way when she is in "work mode" ... ;)


Aside from cleaning up the attic, I also took advantage of the little time I have to take down the Samhain decorations, although, I still left some fall/autimn things out. Before we know it, it will soon be time to get ready for Yule. WOW, I really can't believe how this year has flown by so quickly. Either that, or it is true what they say about our perception of time as we all get older.

    1. Thanks so much, my dear friend! And you are so right. I donated 15 boxes of good shape to almost brand new clothing to Goodwill this past week! I will be very glad if someone could wear or need them!

      Hugs,

      Kim

  3. What an amazing transformation. You should be proud of yourself ! A job well done. I love the photo of your hubby taking a nap. I just donated lots of clothing to a place that gives things away. No charge! I like that. I can't believe how fast this your is going. Snowy weather is coming and I'm not looking forward to that at all. I am a spring and summer person..
