Sunday Rest

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
~William Morris

This is my motto right now, and I'm having such fun! My house looks like a tornado has struck, but I know it will all start to fall into place soon. I've been getting rid of so much stuff; I'm not exactly a minimalist, but I am determined to cut things down until there is only what there is room for. Empty spaces might even be a good thing for a while. ;) I'll be sharing pictures in a week or two as things get finished up. I'm very excited to get to show off the pretty and practical spaces that I'm clearing and creating. So many good, positive, and necessary changes are being put into action around here these days...a new schedule is about finalized, complete with new routines and household management plans. Oh, it will be wonderful! I am one of those people who really do best with just the right amount of structure, not so much that I never get to be creative, but enough that all of the regular things are built into a fixed rhythm. My kids do too, and I have really been dropping the ball in this area lately. I think that the new rhythms will help with some of the sleeping problems going around here these days (Jenny and myself), I always sleep better when my mind and body can learn to depend on routines. I have allot of "OCD" and "ADHD" tendencies, so being able to count on the events of the next day really helps me. All the more reason to create a comfy cocoon of rhythm and order. :)
