Multiplying Magazines

Yikes! The magazines in my home are multiplying or so it seems. I didn't think I had that many under the coffee table until I had to move it. I started a stack (several stacks, in fact) of the ones that had interesting articles, recipes, home decor ideas, etc. with the notion of referring back to them someday soon. My someday soon has become someday never. Since the oldest issues date back to 2002, it is definitely time to let them go. It was so easy to allow something as benign as a magazine to become a hoarding issue. Is there anything multiplying in your home? Sparkling Blessings!

A Pain in the Neck...Literally

Ever get a pain in your neck or shoulder because of your purse? It has become my catchall for life away from home. In addition to the must haves {wallet, keys, cellphone} I was also hauling around almost two months worth of receipts and bill statements. Plus an umbrella, make-up case, datebook and enough loose change to fill a piggy bank. Last night I dumped everything out, sorted it into piles and eliminated what was no longer needed. I set up a receipts envelope and coin jar by the main door as reminders to lighten my load when I come home. So, what's in your purse? Sparkling Blessings!

Procrastination Made Me Do It

Funny how time seems to fly when you're procrastinating. Its been several weeks since my last post and I had all the good intentions to post before now, but a seriously dreadful case of procrastination set in. Under this month's new moon, I have renewed my commitment to blogging about my quest towards domestic well being.

I celebrated Vestalia (Festival of Vesta) on June 9th. To honor Goddess Vesta I baked a loaf of bread. Okay, I did cheat a little by buying the pre-made dough at the local grocery, but nonetheless the warm bread warmed my soul.

I'm in the, more like fog of organizing my books. This should alleviate the multiples problem as I have found that I own two copies of a few books and embarrassingly three copies of one. If anyone would like to have my extra copy of Earth, Air, Fire & Water by Scott Cunningham please let me know.

Sparkling Blessings!
