I finished deep cleaning, rearranging and decorating all the common rooms (i.e. living, dining, pantry (large), halls, kitchen, exercise/entrance (large) rooms).
Tomorrow I want to finish packing the last of the Christmas decorations, clean my studio, my bedroom and my bathroom.
I also need to finish up the newsletter for the guild so I can send it off on Saturday or Sunday. I have the next meeting all taken care of with a special speaker from The Linus Project and the members showing off their things. I do need to add the next part on my mystery quilt so I can include a photo of it in the newsletter.
I actually enjoyed cleaning. I did something I normally do not do...I decided not to have any programs playing. The tv was off as was my phone and music. I simply cleaned. Not fast, but not slow. And I finished much sooner than I had planned.
I guess that's a way to stay mindful. Concentrating on what's at hand only. Not listening to the news or an audiobook, etc. The house looks really nice and I really enjoyed myself. Think I will try doing this with other things...like my quilting or my drawing. I may add some music down the road, but I think I have found that multi-tasking is not all it's made out to be. There are times when we absolutely have to multi-task. But if the opportunity presents itself to single-task, I will do it. And I suggest you give it a try...you may find it less stressful.
Talk to you tomorrow...
