Since My Cowboy was a bit under the weather the last few days, I didn’t ask him to fix my shelves.
However, something big did get fixed! This is our third summer living here, and our air conditioner has never worked. We’ve had it worked on, but to no avail — until now. Third time’s a charm, I guess, because we finally got it running this week — woohoo! We have air conditioning! Something that was broken is now fixed. Whew! That feels good (in more ways than one).
Did you get something fixed last week? Some of you had some good plans.
I hope so, because we’re moving on to this week’s task:
Yes, this is a repeat from earlier in the year.
For those of you who managed to clean yours off in February and keep it that way, I applaud you. I, however, cannot manage to keep mine clean. So I’m at least going to clear it off this week for a fresh start. Here’s my before photo:
Check out that towering stack of trimmings on the far end! Please, once again, note that my ironing board is still clean. I can at least be proud of that fact, can’t I?
I have several important projects to work on over the next few weeks, and having a clean surface to start with will give me a boost for maximum productivity, right?
How about you?
Have you managed to keep your cutting table cleared since the first time we did this?
Or have you spent the last few months RE-piling it back up again, like me?
Will cleaning it off help you be more productive? (or will it make you spend more time looking for the things you moved? — haha!)
For some additional help, please allow me to direct your attention to THIS oh-so-funny yet wonderful article by Megan Dougherty about The Minimalist Quilt Studio. For us this week, pay special attention to #3.
And check in with me and let me know how you’re doing! Have a great week!
