Nothing stops Serenity-Woman!

A couple of sneezes from my sweeping of the dust, yick, and cobwebs cannot stand in my way, and that’s for sure.

I don’t have pictures today, because really what would you want to see? The dust? The dead vines that had wormed their way in through the walls? The pail of nails I picked out from among the ‘yick’ (my affectionate term for the generalized mess mice create)?

I doubt anyone wants to see that.

The left-hand front-corner of the house is looking much clearer, though part of that is a ruse! I moved the wheelbarrow to behind the door, temporarily, so I can sweep and clean. The length of hose has been shifted outside, also temporarily, and I’m hoping for a permanent new location for it (but it’s not mine to discard). The heap of planks, I neatly piled near the door on top of the shingles. Those will have to be moved again to clean.

I began to develop a feeling that I was done with my tasks out there for the day. I respect my feelings, especially when it comes to feeling ‘done’. I strongly encourage that. Feeling stuck or not knowing where to start is an entirely different feeling, though they may be confused for the same. ‘Done’ is a combination of satisfaction that I’ve completed a task, and a willingness to move on to the next good thing to do.

Until next time~ Blessed be.

I have done a lot of work removing invasive plants, lately. The Rose of Sharon spawns a lot of fast-growing new plants… Whew. Hundreds, at least. Be warned, should you ever decide to put one in your yard. And then there’s ivy which reaches over from ‘the pit’.

Here’s photos of clear steps, a clearer ‘future-fire-pit’ area, and the side of the house which was entirely covered with vines at one point. Also, the (cleaner) lock from the table, and my gourd plant!

We’re on our way to a cozy fire-pit and a clear and easy path to the Little House. So Mote It Be.
