|My kitchen junk drawer, tagged (like lots of things in my home) by Tallulah.|
Once in a while, I tackle them and clear it all out. It's reaching that time. I think it may even have been on my list of what I wanted to accomplish this month. If it wasn't on there, it should have been.
And perhaps I need to do that with my life as well. Clear it out, keep what is useful, toss what isn't. Behaviors, thought patterns, habits, people? I wonder if that is what all this unsettled feeling is that I have been carrying around the past couple days. Just enough discomfort from there not being any more room to "shut the drawer". If I can't shut the drawer, then there it is. And I can't just keep walking by it, or walking through my life pretending it isn't there.
All that junk.
So, today I will clear out one of my junk drawers. Maybe tomorrow I will do another. I want to be accountable, so I am putting it out there. Expect an update with photo tomorrow.
And as far as my life, well, that may take longer than one day to sort out. It's not that heavy, I hope you all aren't thinking something major is going on at the Baumgarts. Just time to slow down, isn't that what this month is all about, in a way? If I clear out what isn't useful, maybe I'll feel more capable of slowing down.
Oh, and I plan on making either fresh pasta with my new pasta maker (Thanks, Jamie!) or potato corn chowder with my new food mill (Thanks, Amy!). Because, even if the junk drawers of your life need a cleanin', you still gotta eat.
Wish me luck,
