Moving, Packing, & Aching All Over!

This is only a small sampling of the (now) hundreds of boxes we've packed up for our move in just a week from now! Albeit, they're small boxes, but who knew we had so much 'stuff'? I am making a pledge to myself and anyone else who cares to listen, that once we get to our new home and I begin to unpack, it's not going to be clutter here and clutter there, no sir-ee. I will be getting rid of more 'stuff' by either giving it away, or trashing it. What can I say except that if I had it to do over again through the years, I would not have bought many things I used to think I just HAD to have.

Simplicity and uncluttered spaces will be my new living plan and I really am serious about this. I feel sinful that both my husband and me have accumulated so very much, especially when others are doing without the basics. I will take any and all necessary steps to rectify that as much as I'm able in my own little corner of the world.

Speaking of corners of the world here is a lovely picture of just such a thing, sans deer in the background. It's a great place for meditating and thanking God for all of his many blessings.

As for crochet content, I've been falling down on the job. The only thing I haven't packed yet is my (GASP) knitting, and I've only got one thing out just in case I have a moment to work on and that's a linen shawl. I should have kept out the granny square I began awhile ago, but I promise that I'll get back to that project just as soon as things settle down a bit...........and, I locate it, LOL.
