Clump #55: Clear away two more bags on floor of study. I’m getting very close to an imperfectly-perfectly clear floor in this room, all because of the personal 30-day, 30-clump, 30-post challenge. Yay!
This was a simple clump, but its reverberations will be far-reaching. I’m getting the floor de-cluttered in the room that was stuffed with stuff, to the point where we couldn’t (and didn’t want to) walk there.
Here they are, long-forgotten and formerly hidden in the clutter:
One was filled with the fishing gear we use on our annual trip to Minnesota. We also have an annual “Where did we stash the fishing gear?” routine … so utterly predictable, annoying, and time-wasting.
This year will be different …. wow! Look at us now!
The lone glove in the bag is reunited with its mate in the glove drawer, and all is right in the glove world again.
The other small paper bag contained knitting instructions for socks (something I would have been really bugged at not locating next time the sock-knitting urge strikes) and a great book, Decision Making & Spiritual Discernment, by Nancy L. Bieber. Why these two were stashed together, I have no idea.
I took a class last year on Spiritual Discernment, based on this book. Nancy Bieber taught the first session and gave us a few hand-outs. Rereading them today reminded me of a quote I especially loved: “Live up to the Light thou hast, and more will be given to thee.” –Caroline Fox
