As they say in France - VOILA!!
THE BEFORE PICTURES OF THE UTILITY ROOM/WORKSHOP/DISASTER AREA:
NOT MUCH "WORK" GOING ON IN HERE!
THE AFTER PICTURES - LOOK OUT! I FEEL LIKE I'M GETTING BACK MY CREATIVE ENERGY!
OH LOOK! THERE'S MY WORK TABLE! THERE MAY BE A NEW CARVING IN MY FUTURE!
ONCE I GOT RID OF ALL OF THE JUNK WITH A CAPITAL J.U.N.K. THERE'S LOTS OF ROOM FOR THE GOOD STUFF WITH SPACE LEFT OVER!
LOOK - EMPTY SPACE ON THE SHELF!
WHAT? HOW CAN THAT BE? MORE EMPTY SPACE! ALL OF MICHAEL'S BELONGINGS HAVE NOW BEEN ASSIMILATED ONTO THE SHELVES EXCEPT FOR TWO PLASTIC BINS WHICH HOLD HIS WINTER CLOTHES. TIME TO MAKE A SWITCH MY DEAR - WINTER IS HERE!
Today I made the drive out to the Household Hazardous Waste depot with about 20 partial cans of paint and 30+ partial cans of spray paint. It felt really good to get rid of that stuff.
I also got rid of: two bags of old Christmas decorations to Talize.
old carpet and several bags of useless garbage...
...an old fan that doesn't work anymore but thought I might fix someday hahaha!
I also put together a big box full of scraps of wood from various DIY projects that I am saving to burn in the firepit at the trailer. I have decided that I cannot live without my trailer. Yes, it still feels like MY trailer. We have been encouraged many times by its current owners who are friends of ours to use it any time, but it just didn't feel right. But I am mourning its loss deeply and have decided to hell with it, I am going to use it!!
So come springtime we are heading to the trailer! I am going to create a
TRAILER BOX (bedding, pillows, clothing) that we can take back and forth with us. Every time I think of the trailer, which is frequently, my heart hurts so badly, so I'm gonna give this a try.
Finally, I'm only 25km from Brighton, ON. I won't make it there tonight but definitely by tomorrow night. I will let you know soon some of the great things about Brighton.
Oh yes, and I won a sweet little blogging award - details to follow!!
