It’s autumn. My gardening as well as canning season is coming to a halt. It’s not an easy time of year for me… putting away all the things that make me live.
The suns warmth.
The feel of living things.
… I live and breathe my gardens…
Then comes the time I spend putting all the bounty from my gardens ‘up’… precious life source that I feed my family through the cold winter months here in Michigan. Canning, freezing, drying and root cellaring… I love to feed my family.
The house gets pretty neglected starting mid-August through the end of October. The gardens and their goods take every spare moment of my time. It’s a race… between me and the produce…. and I won!
Now’s the time I begin my fall cleaning, purging and organizing the house. It’s time to regroup, pitch and toss the junk and tidy up what stays. Organization falls into one of my ‘love’ categories… everything has its place and everything in its place.
A couple years back I did another series on organization. I thought I’d do some updates and revisions over the next month.
Here’s a breakdown of the topics I’ll be focusing on through the month of November.
*Creating and Maintaining Routines
*P.M.S.- this is not what you think
*Weekly Schedule at a Glance/ Focused Errand Days
*Menu Planning/ Grocery Lists
*The Walk Through
*Room by Room Cleaning How-to
*The Laundry Room
*The Mud Room/ Back Entry
*The Family Room
*The Dining Room
*The Homemakers 10 Commandments
Keep posted for my first post coming tomorrow!
