Yeah, late again! Can’t seem to much right these days — exactly why I need to get better organized! 😉

Welcome to Check It √ Monday [originally started when Kristi, at Addicted2Decorating introduced Make It Happen! Mondays], where I hold myself accountable — for both finishing projects & posting at least once per week!
Not a lot of organizing got done but I did get some cleaning done this past week. No glasswork but hey, I finally cleared the dirty dish pile & have kept the kitchen clean — quite an accomplishment for me. [Providing an epiphany & inspiration for two posts at Dawne Thoughts — Where To Start? & Why I Hate Housework.]
With the wonderful summer-like weather the Isle’s been having, I’ve spent most of my days outside with Lady [right] or out in the porch enjoying the skinny bench:
The custom bench was made quite skinny because the porch is barely three feet wide — leaving an almost-normal path. I’m still contemplating glass choices for the middle shelf of the tables & need a couple more paydays before purchasing more turquoise cubes [from Martha Stewart] for the bench shelf.
I especially love the view out the open door of CityScape across the driveway.
I also got the bathroom cleaned [always an ucky chore], did some laundry, & even dusted [yup, only when it’s a blue moon]. Still, I felt slow & realized I’d been too ambitious last week considering I was still in recovery mode.
Needless to say, the next week has to be about organization. My list still includes:
- make some appointments,
- catch up on replying to emails,
- WRITE SOME PROJECT POSTS,
- publish more at Dawne Thoughts,
- clean my room,
- do some fall preparation in the gardens,
- another mini-clean of the porch,
- maybe a little less family or fun & a bit more work this week! 😛
I know — boooring. But, it’s the things that HAVE to be done that I keep putting off. And that just gets me more disorganized . . . which flusters me . . . which makes everything worse . . . which upsets me . . . which . . . you get the idea.
I have to make Onward & Upward my mantra this week. Wish me luck! 😉
Check back next Monday [September 17th] to see how I do at Check It √ Monday!
