Spring Cleaning Continued

I was reminded by a reader that I had promised to declutter my desk and take another picture. I did get the top of the shelves cleaned off right away but I didn’t get to the main area or the cubby holes. I think because I had not made it “perfect” yet I put off taking another picture.

Well, today I am posting the before picture taken on March 28, and one taken this morning. I have also taken one after setting the timer for 15 minutes and clearing off the desk top. It’s a work in progress, just like most things in our lives. And that’s a good thing! If everything was always in it’s place then there wouldn’t be any “living” going on there.

April 24, 2008 after a 15 minute clean up.


Although it’s warm outside, it’s also cloudy and rainy again today. Sometimes it is hard to get in the mood to spring clean when the sun isn’t shining. Maybe it will still show it’s face today and I can tackle some more decluttering.

Mark Twain grew up just north of St. Louis and this quote says it all about the weather in the Midwest.

“In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours.” ~Mark Twain
