Sunset at Pacific Grove CA
I have been back in Canada for a little over two weeks and during that time the contractor has been at the house daily continuing with our renovations. Things have taken shape nicely but we move from rooms which are almost empty to rooms which are crowded with furniture and other displaced items. The clutter and disorganization have sapped my energy and most evenings it is easier to just go to bed rather than deal with the mess. The project will not be completed until the end of the first week of December. Yesterday the baseboards were finished in the living room and we put the basic furniture back in place....one room to relax in. I have decided to wait a few weeks to put pictures on the wall and have packed away the knicknacks (dust collectors) for now. How does one accumulate so much "stuff"?
The Lone Cypress, Pebble Beach CA
I love open outdoor landscapes, the simplicity of the horizon, the sun and moon, a body of water, a tree. Creativity is unleashed when we have space for our ideas. My New Year's resolution was Simplify and I have this opportunity to act on the one word guide I chose for 2009.
