Hope you all are having a great summer so far! It’s H-O-T here…geez! My morning walk/run keeps getting earlier and earlier trying to beat the heat. So far, that has not been accomplished. The run/walk gets done but the heat is there. Boy, oh boy. When we finish, I’m just a hot, sweaty mess. (But I’m out there!)
Last week was my birthday so to celebrate, my buddy Kathryn and I zip lined over the river at the zoo. Through the woods and over the river instead of over the river and through the woods. By the way, it was hot. In case you were wondering. It was so much fun! And I did catch a slightly cool breeze while zooming over the river. Slightly. But since you’re traveling about 30 mph, it was short-lived. I was afraid that I’d be afraid, but I wasn’t. It was just exciting.
So I have a challenge for you this week – and it’s one I need myself. It seems we come back to this one pretty regularly. Those pesky drawers (no, not talking about your undies). I’m talking kitchen drawers, desk drawers, dresser drawers. Somehow (when we’re not looking) someone messes up those drawers that it seems like we just straightened out and decluttered. My challenge is this: spend 15 minutes every day this week clearing out and decluttering a drawer. I’m wondering if we shouldn’t just do this every day until – well, forever – and work our way through the drawers in the house over and over. By the time we get to the last one, we can go back to the first one and start again. 🙂 I’m going to start with the dreaded “junk” drawer in the kitchen. As always. I don’t know where the junk comes from, but it works its way in there every time. I throw stuff out and new stuff makes its way in. (Insert heavy sigh here. Or a huff. Or a groan.)
I’m going to get to the drawer right now. Y’all have a great night!
P.S. I hope you’re keeping up with your daily happy pics. I’ve been posting mine on the Facebook page, but I’m keeping them saved on my computer so I can make a collage or scrapbook page or two when the month is over. And I think I’ll just keep on with the project. It’s been a good thing to take a moment every day to find something that makes me happy and makes me smile. I’d love to see your pics if you’ve been doing the Happiness Project.
