Holy domesticity, Batman!

I don't know what has gotten into me. Maybe it's the new year. Maybe it's the post-Christmas need to find places for newly acquired stuff. Maybe I've been replaced by a body snatcher. Whatever the explanation, I've been insanely domestic and productive (!) the past day and a half.

So far I have:
  • reorganized drawers and under the sink in the bathroom
  • cleaned the bathroom counter
  • sorted through unneeded silverware for donation
  • sorted and organized four shopping bags worth of fabric
  • organized the closet that the fabric goes in
  • packed away Xmas decorations (all three of them)
  • collapsed a bunch of boxes for recycling
  • done three loads of laundry, folded two of them
  • cleaned and vacuumed the living room
  • sewed a purse for a small friend's birthday in a few weeks*
  • patched a pair of pants that I ripped in June
  • sorted through my jewelry to purge some**
  • hand-sewed a felt carrot for Doodle because I felt like it (heh, I said felt twice!)
  • taken five shopping bags of stuff we don't need out to the car for donation.
And now I'm contemplating making a pie. Pecan. Followed by cutting up some beef to start jerky on the dehydrator. Then maybe I'll make bread.

Holy crap. Do I need an intervention?

* Note the lack of procrastination. This is major, people!
** A major feat. Doodle helped. I had some necklaces from junior high. Next goal: to maintain the space in my jewelry drawer, and not fill it with newly made necklaces just because.

Maybe it's that the days just started getting longer, and you're *really* getting excited for Spring. Even though it's going to be -10 degrees tomorrow morning.... Grasping for straws here! Good luck! ;) sally

Or maybe you are nesting, haha. j/k

I bought a sewing machine today. I am very proud of myself. I have so many different sizes of clothing and I am going to try and take them and turn them into children's clothing. It will be interesting because I have very little experience sewing.

Good job with all you have done. Maybe all of this is a way to put off the thesis ;)
