|Yep, just some of our books I've been sorting|
A few trips to the op-shops to make donations & a trip to the tip later and I'm slowly seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I've still got a little way to go with what I want to achieve in the near future but I feel the weight lifting off my shoulders & more clarity of mind.
The big bonus is that actually being able to find stuff around the house means I'm more likely to get my creativity on. Yay!
Blogs I've been reading:
I've subscribed to the blog feed of 365 Less Things by email and it has me thinking about really decluttering allot of things & whilst I'll never be a minimalist, it's good to have little reminders to re-look at things
What I've been Listening to:
I've started to go through my CD collection from A-Z well at least those that I've put together (yes I alphabetised our CDs a while ago, but there are a few strays) Whilst Lukey has his daycare day I'm cleaning & listening to Christina Aguilera & Amiel. Thinking I will cull some of the CDs that I'm not all that into anymore. I dare not touch Steve's though!
What I've been watching:
The local video shop is closing down (sob) so they are selling stock (yay) I bought The Wizard of Oz (been wanting it for ages). It's the two disc version so I've been loving the documentaries about the making of the movie & back stories.
To go with both the theme of The Wizard of Oz & my de-cluttering I found a box of computer discs and wot-not & discovered my L. Frank Baum audio/PDF Oz series on CD. I'd forgotten that after seeing the musical Wicked! a couple years back I bought the disc on ebay, but never got around to reading them. As the books were all written so long ago they're in the public domain, some can be read straight online. I must admit I'm a bit of an anti-ebook reader or not so much anti as just I'd prefer looking at a book than the computer screen but none the less I'm enjoying The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, especially comparing it to the movie. I've never read a series of books before (and I'm an ex-library assistant!), so if I stick at it I'll be proud of myself, even if they are kids books!! I'm usually more of a Non-fiction, blog & Frankie reader!
