Clean is a Beautiful Thing

It’s a beautiful day today on the farm.  The geese, ducks and chickens couldn’t get out of the coop fast enough.  The goats are meandering around the front pasture, and the alpacas are doing the same in the back pasture.  The geese and ducks took their early morning baths while the chickens pecked the ground gathering up their morning treat of scratch grains.  It seems everyone appreciates a nice day.

Once the chores were done, I came inside to tidy up the kitchen and eat breakfast.  I started laundry, and then much to my surprise, I started sorting, organizing and throwing out papers that had accumulated on one of my kitchen counters.  Apparently, reading a book on organizing before falling asleep works on those theta waves.  Theta is the state of mind where it is believed you can create everything and change reality instantly.  Works for me!

So with the sun shining and the warmer weather, it seems that this hen is in the nesting mode.  I’m definitely feeling the itch to get working on the kitchen, but it will have to wait.  I work later today and tomorrow I’m meeting up with a friend in Appleton, an hour’s drive away.  I can’t wait though because we’re shopping at Re-Store, and I have a project in mind so I need to pick up some supplies at Michael’s.  Then it’s lunch and our favorite hang-out, Barnes and Noble.  I wonder what other books I can pick up that will inspire my theta waves?

Real Life Organizing by Cassandra Aarseen is a wonderful book.  She groups people into bugs (clutterbugs that is!).  I’m a ladybug.  But what I especially love about this book is Chapter Ten ~ Bloom Where You’re Planted.  She talks about house envy and the need to love the house you’re in.  She says, “A clean home is beautiful, no matter the decor.”  Don’t you just love that?  We can organize, clean and DIY our way to loving and appreciating the home we’re in.  I have a whole new outlook on this wonky old farmhouse and I can feel the love.

Until next time . . .
