Well, the Holidays are almost here – Thanksgiving is around the corner – and all my dishes are in boxes in the attic.  I really thought that our house would be sold by now, so I went crazy and put almost everything in boxes.  One purpose was to declutter, eliminate what we were not taking with us, and the other, staging the house so buyers would appreciate it better.  I wanted to start decorating for the holidays, but that is another consequence of jumping the hoops way ahead.  The Christmas decorations are all the way in the back, behind many boxes (as I said, I was confident the house would sell soon).   I still am; it is a matter of perspective – I only need one buyer.  But in the meantime, I have to rescue some china and some decorations – just a few, to make things festive.

Maybe I should take this procrastination thing more serious.  Maybe I should start slowing down more – it will be excellent practice for what lies ahead in the simple country life.  See, I just realize I did it again – “excellent practice for what lies ahead … ”  Maybe this is something that I cannot turn off that easy, it will take practice and patience – after all, they say that practice makes perfect.

Here are a couple of pics of the mountains to be moved to rescue some Christmas decorations.

Empty cupboards.
Oh well, it will be good exercise to drop a couple of pounds.
