Let It Go Girl!

First, let me say: I love this girl. She is sweet, kind and thoughtful. But, has a real hard time letting go of STUFF. She will admit it. 

Went to her room the other day, WOW, her closet scared me. For one, you couldn't even step into it. It's a WALK IN CLOSET. She had been asking for help to find her compression clothing. The weather is really getting to her. As it gets colder she will need to wear her nice warm, help her circulation, compression clothing. Wonder why, read this

So, here's what happened. Cousins and sisters have been passing her clothing. She hasn't gotten rid of anything. In fact. She still has stuff she wore in the 8th grade! She's in 11th. There is no way it's all going to fit into her closet or dresser. Some of it has to go.  I couldn't tell clean piles from dirty. I have been washing it all. Sorting it into piles, then she tells me what she actually wears. I am going to help put it all away. Talk about an over whelming project, whew...I was wiping my brow from simply carrying up the stairs everything. Shhh!!!! I have a secret bag that I have been stuffing shirts and other items that I haven't seen her wear in quite sometime or are to small,into. 

There is still a nice size basket sitting in my laundry room still waiting it's turn to be washed. It will keep until I return home from work today. When I will finish it up, then call her in to sort through all of  the piles. I will be saying "Let it go girl, because if you want anything new you gotta let it go." 

Sometimes Fall Nesting, is all about cleaning out the clutter!

Thinking this pumpkin is looking sad and boring.
Gotta do something to freshen it  up. Just not sure what I am going to do. Wanted to show that I have my stuff out, that I kept. Working to make things look nice again. Thinking some glitter, gold spray paint, a table runner might help.

Pumpkin Walk

It was that time of year again. Pumpkin Walk time! It's a fancy way of learning values. They pick a theme or value. Decorate pumpkins and talk about being a good person. It's pretty amazing what this has turned into. My children loved it when they were small. I was excited this year for two reasons. One, I can pay a donation fee of a dollar for each pumpkin I want. WooHooo!!! Great deal for me! Reason two, it's my last year having a kid participate. It just makes me happy. I can't really explain it. It simply does. So, My porch has 3 pumpkins sitting on it right now. Girlie, in the photo started spray painting hers. Can't wait to see what it looks like.

Fall Flowers

Each October the temperatures start dropping at night. But, during the day it's 70 something degrees. My perfect kind of weather. While the leaves are turning different shades of fall colors, yellows, oranges, etc... There is something AMAZING happening in my garden. Flowers are still blooming. Best part is, I can see them from my kitchen window. The night time drop in temperature doesn't seem to be bothering them, yet. Awe, (me sighing) Beautiful spring colors. I love them. It's like a fall miracle.

I could say that I am a tad behind with my Fall Nesting or say that I have been a busy bee working on so many projects that I haven't had two minutes to blog. Shame on me. None the less I am back. Starting where I am at.

Trash Can

Yesterday, I spent sometime in the basement cleaning and sorting through our Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving Decor. While I was looking through closets and pulling boxes out. I noticed something. Trash. Gosh Dang It! Didn't I teach this kiddo' better than to leave the trash laying all over the floor of the room? Yep, I know I have. So, I did something about it, without cleaning it up myself. 


I happened to have the perfect bucket handy. Added a liner to it. 


Final touch a note from mom. Simple does the trick. Voila!!! Trash picked up. And not by me.

Halloween Stuff Refreshed

 Struggling. Yep, this challenge has me struggling. Ever had good intentions that just go bad? Well, that would describe me right now. Best of intentions. But, not happening like I would like. I have a table cloth photo that disappeared. So, I will retake it and share it later. But, for now. I spent 3 hours the other day cleaning up my basement, while digging out all the decorations I have for Halloween, Fall or Thanksgiving related. I want to focus my decor into something that doesn't need a lot of changing after Halloween is over. So, I am letting go of a few things. It's already at the local thrift store. Where someone is going to think they hit the jackpot of Halloween loot. Sometimes, a fresh start is nice.
