I managed to get one box emptied and one cupboard in the Welsh Dresser in the living room sorted.
It may seem as though I am flitting from one project to another without completing anything at this point, but some projects merge with other projects when they need to be completed. Case in point I had a big box of envelopes laying around in the living room. I wanted to put them in one of the drawers in the kitchen dresser. To do that though I had to clean out the dresser, which is what I ended up doing.
Here is a photo of the kitchen dresser:
I couldn't be bothered to take a photo of every drawer before and after, but here is some of the stuff I got rid of:
I will say that this project wasn't on the cards until next week, but I wanted to find a home for those envelopes, so I guess I may as well declutter as I am going along, right? Those plastic chopping boards haven't seen the light of day since we moved in nearly three years ago, so out they went!!
"Sixty Acres and a Bride," by Regina Jennings
With nothing to their names, young widow Rosa Garner and her mother-in-law return to their Texas family ranch. Only now the county is demanding back taxes and the women have just three months to pay.Though facing eviction, Rosa falls in love with the countryside and the wonderful extended family who want only her best. They welcome her vivacious spirit and try to help her navigate puzzling American customs. She can't help but stand out, though, and her beauty captures attention. Where some offer help with dangerous strings attached, only one man seems honorable. But when Weston Garner, still grieving his own lost love, is unprepared to give his heart, Rosa must decide to what lengths she will go to save her future.
This is Regina's first novel and it's a great one. The leading characters are people you can relate too and Rosa's personality is such that you want her to succeed in everything you do. One thing though I couldn't visualize Weston, not sure if that makes sense or not?
It was a book that I couldn't put down and I even stayed up until 10:30 p.m. to finish it as I didn't want to go to bed wondering what would happen next.
Stars out of 5 : 5 a great book with an interesting story. It's worth while book to borrow or buy. Can't wait until Regina's publishes her next book.
