Time Out....


This morning, I started hunting for accessories for the Mystery Box...I did pretty well, considering that nothing was where it belonged.

I found a yellow hat with green trim that matched the room perfectly...Of course, Tessie claimed it and didn't want it to go in the room.  She wanted it in her hat shop...

I realized that the reason that I couldn't find anything was because Tessie was hiding things so that they wouldn't be put in the box...

While I searched, she sat on her tuffet and munched on chocolate chip cookies.  Only crumbs left for the dogs.
As I sat back to look at the box, so far, I saw this....Not good.

I can't work on the work table....No room.

I decided that I should clean a bit before going on....

Then I made the mistake of getting up when the timer went off, to go move the hose.  Still no sign of more monsoons.

Oops!  So much for working on the boxes...at least for the time being.  At least there is a path from the door to the worktable.....That's about all there is. 

I guess I am going to have to break down and straighten things out....

Tessie refuses to help.  When I asked, she told me in no uncertain terms, "It's not my mess.  Not my problem!  Call me when you are finished."  And with that she flounced out of the room.  Taking the dogs and cookies with her.

I guess I am on my own for now...
See you tomorrow, with a clean room...Maybe.

Casey, there's never any end to cleaning. I have a lot of stuff for my small apartment and I'm so glad that I have an armoire to put a lot of stuff in but I wish it was bigger. Plus I have four of those plastic towers with drawers plus many small containers and a few big plastic bins. That's not even a quarter of what you have. Even though it's all organized by categories, still sometimes I can get so frustrated when I'm searching for something. I don't know how you manage to find anything with all the stuff you have in that room. I know your stuff is organized and categorized but still, it must be hard to locate things.

You can clean later! Get back to the mystery room-it is looking so good...Ah well. I do the same thing. I have to clean and organize before I can finish being inspired. :)

I'm the same. I need to be fairly organised and tidy to be able to be creative. I can work in a bit of a mess but once I notice it I just have to have a tidy up before I go on.
