If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with? (And why, if you’re feel like admitting to it.)
I’d start with my kitchen. Always the kitchen. Everything manages to get piled up in there on the island (which is supposed to serve as my work space), counters, crammed in drawers and cabinets, etc. I’m someone who cleans out stuff regularly, and no matter how much I do in the kitchen, it seems like there is always something overflowing.
If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?
Lately I’ve been sending myself alerts on my iPhone. That has helped me so much with not forgetting things! Not only can I add things to a list that I can check off, I can also have alerts sent at certain time and repeat on certain days. I love it.
If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize: sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?
Hearing. I need quiet to focus. Unlike my husband — who works from home with ease and isn’t the least bit bothered by people walking in and out of his work area — I can’t focus on reading, writing, whatever with noise. And by noise, I mean my children and husband.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
I can’t remember her name, but I’d interview my grandmother’s grandmother. When my grandmother would talk about her relatives, that’s the name that came up most often — she was an old maid who never had a nice word for anyone — so I’d be kinda interested to see what all happened in her life.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week I was grateful for cooler temperatures, participating in fall activities, and a nice date night with my husband. This week I’m looking forward to more fall activities with the kiddos.
