Along my way today...I have been watching old, like black & white old, videos of The French Chef, which is, of course, Julia Child. I'm getting them from Netflix. But you know what? After 40 years of cooking for my family, I am learning a lot from her. And I'm loving it. I should have watched her years ago.

The Big Clean

Along my way today...been cleaning a lot. Not just spring cleaning, but an upgraded spring cleaning. Maybe I should call it "decade clean out". Actually, I think the process will take me a few months to complete. I will eventually have cleaned, reorganized, simplified, redecorated every square inch of my house. This will include everything from reorganizing the kitchen drawers to new flooring to painting walls. I will use what I have first and if I don't absolutely LOVE something I have, it will be donated. No more clutter just for the sake of having it. This is the result of a few months of thinking and praying about my home and where I am in my life now. Now that I am "older", my taste in style have changed somewhat. It has become more simple and settled. I am very much looking forward to getting all this finished so that I can get on with doing the things that I really enjoy, quilting, crafting and enjoying more the people that I love. The blogs that I have been following have been a huge source of inspiration to me. I cannot say how much I have enjoyed all of them. I say thank you to all of you for your encouragement. It has been exciting to find other ladies who actually enjoy the same things that I enjoy. Who knew that I wasn't alone in being greatly satisified by a neatly organized silverware drawer! I am looking forward to the path that the Lord is going to be taking me on from here on. My faith in Him is stronger than its ever been and I trust Him for every step.
