I mopped the floors and I've been working through the stubborn parts of the washing pile, those bits that seem to hang out in the bottom of the basket and never make it into the machine.....because they probably should be hand-washed or something. The things that make me go 'Ummmm, what should I do with this now?'
I needed to hand-wash an unfinished knitting project because Geri The Wonder Dog stole it and dragged it around the back yard. I've got it soaking in a tub right now.
Did you notice the missing knitting needle head and the dog chew marks?
Some of the other bottom of the basked lurkers were ribbons and fabric that were in need of a clean because of dust or cat loving. The cats can really shed crazy amounts of fur in no time.
And you know what? I took a look at those bits of ribbon and fabric and ditched half of them because I'd rather throw them out then clean them.
It feels really good to be able to chuck them out and not angst over having discarded something useful. Obviously not the decision I made first or they wouldn't have been lurking in the bottom of the laundry basket.
The more I declutter the easier it is to get rid of those little things that make me go 'Ummm?'
What things make you go 'umm?' What do you do with them? Are any of them half finished dog damaged projects?
