An uncluttered life

My soon to be office space, in buttercream (the paint company calls it barley water, I think buttercream sounds better)

In nine days,

I will be moving,

I am packing,

and on,

Friday and Saturday,

I have help, people driving,

me, lifting,

boxes of kitchen stuff,

clothes, wall hangings and stuff ,

over to the new place.

I still want to cull,

it still feels like,

I am going to clutter up,

my new place.

I don’t want to do that,

I want to unclutter my life.

I don’t want to win awards,

for minimalism,

and I appreciate,

lots of books,

and a lived in,

non antiseptic space.

But, I am sick,

of never,

having a clear work surface,

I am sick of vacuuming,

around stuff.

I want to unclutter my life.

I want to breathe,

I want time and space to think.

I have a job, I love,

that I find fulfilling,

it is also intensely,

social, and in the pandemic,

social means,

Zoom and company.

I want to have a haven,

where I can put the phone,

on the charger,

turn the computer off,

sit in a chair and read,

go for a walk,

talk to someone,

a friend, in person,

I want to unclutter,

my environment,

so I can unclutter,

my mind,

so I can unclutter,

my life.

I am so looking forward,

to,

Clutter be gone!

Have a good one,

everyone,

stay safe,

get vaccinated.

Later girls,

BB

  1. Right on. Having problems with clutter. Have full custody of two kids, three cats, on husky cross in a small two bedroom on a second floor. No basement, garage, yard… also no job at the moment which is a source of anguish and concern since I’m 62..

  2. That sounds like more clutter potential than I have. With me the difficulty of living in the same building for so long and having to cull all my mom’s things.

  3. You aren’t a dope, I don’t currently have a subscribe option, I just share on my Facebook page and Bookishbutch Facebook page, if you like Bookish Butch you will be notified
