Baby Steps

You remember that I told you the other day I am cleaning my sad sad sewing room. It will be quite cheerful when I get it all neat again. My walls and ceiling are a nice shade of yellow and I have red tropical curtains that I made myself(go figure), it would be totally rediculous to buy curtains for a sewing room. But it is basically a cheerful room--when it's not so cluttered that you take a look and then turn around and go the other way.

Anyway, I'm making small strides in getting things clean. My cutting board is looking better already, and I've moved on to another area. And I'm doing this in 15 minute increments. They work wonders. I think I need to write a self-help/do it yourself book on the wonders of doing things in 15 minute increments. I'm sure absolutely everyone would go crazy for my words of wisdom on this subject.

And my 15 minutes have just been spent typing this post. Guess I better get back at it.

15 minutes??? That is a good idea but I don't want to leave my computer after 15 minutes. Maybe I could bump mine to 30 minutes. I love retired life, but my how time gets away. Better go back to the 15 minutes thing and set a timer!!!!

The Fly Lady suggests doing things in microsteps as well.

I find I get a lot done while I am microwaving things. It is astounding what you can accomplish in 30 seconds or 2 minutes when you make a game of it!

Thanks for visiting my blog.
