A quick update

Oh gosh time is flying. The past 2 weeks have gone by in a blur. I have gotten into a reasonably good routine of working and exercise. I could do with a bit more socializing but one thing at a time.

Last Sunday, I had intended to write a post, but my cousins’ Grandmother died and her funeral was on Saturday and Sunday was spent hanging out with some of my cousins. We had brunch and wandered the city, going into many unique furniture stores. I need to stay out of these places, as I feel in love with a $2300 couch … O_o

I have been battling a head cold for the past week or more. I need more rest but I just can’t seem to slow down long enough to get well. I tried going to bed earlier most of last week and it seemed to help. Now if I could only lose the cough, life would be ideal.

Last night I went to see Trevor Noah live and he did not disappoint. I took transit downtown which is a change for me. But I figured that would be the better financial decision and it gave me time to read. It was an easy ride down and back.

Today I surprised myself with how productive I was. I cooked, cleaned and did laundry. If it could stay this way all the time … I would be dancing in the streets. I still need to dust but I am slowly going to get to it.

I have been trying my best to declutter. It is a work in progress. I started small with my spice cupboard. I threw out quite a few spices that expired in 2014. My plan moving forward is to reassess my spices every January. This was I can get rid of the ones that are not in use.

My intention is to finally do my kitchen renovations, late summer. To get ready I want to reduce the amount of things I own so there will be less to store, plus I could certainly own less.

My closet is my next target. I turned all my hangers the wrong way last year and I need to go through which ones I can let go and give away the ones I haven’t worn in a year. It helps that I am no longer that size and my style has changed a bit.

Enough talk about cleaning, time to motivate myself to workout.
