52 Weeks of Organizing - 3

Week 3 goal - put away all books after sorting and reorganizing.  Done!

What about your goal for this week? You can join in anytime!

Also, I had an idea for the printable organizing list you can download here.  I am printing out a few more lists and creating more 52 weeks lists for things such as books I've read this year and recipes to try from my new cookbook.

I love lists and I would love to hear about yours!


  1. I LOVE the idea of 52 weeks of new recipes- one a week? I can't wait to add that to the 52 weeks of organizing. Thanks for the great idea!

  2. I started by printing the 52 weeks list yesterday. Then, without writing anything on it, I went down to the basement and organized one corner. Just one corner...and it felt like I had moved a mountain. Then, I went to my desk, toppling over with papers, kids' art projects, magazines to read, and some junk mail, and I purged and organized it. Then, I went to the canned goods cupboard and cleaned it out. Have several things that are not in our new, better eating plan, so they are going to be given away. Next, for the dry goods cupboard - 1/2 way done there, but have to interrupt it to go to an activity with the kids. I guess I was too excited to tackle the messes and corners to write anything down! It's still blank!

    Thank you for your inspiration and your INVITATION to do this with you. H2U

  3. I think this is an awesome idea! ~Alana~

Locally Grown {stuffed green peppers recipe}

  Last weekend we took the whole family to a nearby produce stand.  We were craving something that tasted fresh from the garden and since I don't have my own garden, we found this place.     The fields were full of fall-colored flowered.  Can't wait for those cooler days to come.         But for now, we are reveling in the height of summer sunshine and produce.       It's easy to go overboard here and buy much more than you can use in the next few days.  I don't even like okra but they look so inviting in those cute blue crates.     These tomatoes inspired a caprese salad for lunch: tomato slices cut into quarters, hunks of fresh mozzarella, snipped basil leaves, salt, pepper and drizzles of olive oil and red wine vinegar.       These strawberries wound up being dunked in Silky Chocolate Fondue .       Every girl dreams of doing her shopping with one of these adorable woven baskets, doesn't she?       Even the boys had fun playing in the sand while I took m

How to Create Art in Five Minutes

As I have mentioned before, my word for this year is CREATE .  Painting with watercolors is one area in which I have been experimenting.  Michael's has a really inexpensive line of art supplies called Artist's Loft .  I bought the watercolor paints and a few brushes as a way to get started without much investment. (Everything is around $5-$10.)   Being a part of Alisa Burke's on-line class called Create Daily , has awakened my senses to the many opportunities to create quickly .  Sometimes we get caught up in the idea that we must have large blocks of time set aside to be artistic .  Surely, we think, it takes an afternoon to paint, collage, journal or compose a few lines of poetry.  Well, if you are seeking perfection, it does.  But if you are seeking to revel in your simplistic ability to create something imperfect instead of nothing at all ,  there are moments of creative inspiration everywhere you look! On this particular day, I opened my daily poetry em

Peaceful Snow Day

Yesterday we had the most lovely snow day. The woods were simply begging us to come and explore. We had new trails to find and secret passageways and hideouts. Reading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God. George Washington Carver There were tracks to follow. And tracks to make. Occasionally, the wind blew mini blizzards of snow around us. And then the sun returned and the sky gleamed blue. The sky is the daily bread of the eyes. Ralph Waldo Emerson There were hints of Spring. And reminders of winter. We made wonderful memories. And then, there were the snowy camellias. I got a little swept away by their color and beauty. I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. e.e. cummings
