My house is a bit of a mess. Specifically, my office is a complete disaster, but since it's bloody freezing out there, I'm not going to fuss over it until spring. As to the rest of it, I need to buckle down and have a thorough 'go through everything and discard unwanted/unused/unnecessary items' day. Or week, more like. It's only then I can start to think about organizing everything else.

Thing is, I'm an utter failure at keeping things tidy. Clean, yes. That I can do. Uncluttered? Not so much.

I made a start of it today, on the house and on myself: sorted out the recycling. Did a load of laundry and put away clean linens that have been sitting atop the dryer for weeks. Bought a pair of tweezers and shaped my eyebrows (which might be more notable had I ended up with even remotely identical shapes). Trimmed my bangs (if you tilt your head, they look even). Chopped kindling, Ingallsed the inside log rack, cleaned out the wood stove. Stacked papers with recipe snippets and ideas next to the folder full of same.

I know it doesn't seem much. It's all about gathering momentum. Today my bangs, tomorrow fully organized closets!

Hurray! Channel your inner Mary Poppins! "Spit-spot!"

I always think of January as the perfect month to do that type of thing.

PS: I'm a do-it-myself bang trimmer too, and always hear it from the hairdresser, whenever I manage to get in for a real haircut!
