Welcome! I have been out of the blogging habit. I guess it’s easier to hang out on Facebook. Has it been a great week at Home Sanctuary or WHAT?! What hit home for each of you? For me, the Minimum Maintenance was perfect. It goes hand in hand with the Messy Perfectionism article that followed the next day. I am a perfectionist. I like things done right. And often, if I don’t have time to do it “right”, I will just not do it. Minimum Maintenance gives me the permission to spend 5 minutes in an area. No more, no less. Do you know how much I can accomplish in a 5 minute period?! My master bedroom looked waaay better (OK, my ‘half’, anyway!) after 5 minutes. It got me on board to continue making small changes, all as I head toward the perpetual goal of creating Sanctuary in my home.
As with many other Americans this first full week in January, I am DIETING. It is time…and a new and different mindset about this…so I’m hopeful. Next week I add exercise to the routine. Basically I’ve cut out sugar and flour. No big surprise that those are my two favorite food groups. :oP As I do without those things, my tastebuds and cravings change and fruits and vegetables are getting more popular than cookies. Well, almost. ;o)
Have a blessed week – thanks for stopping by!
