    Pouring rain today, so I didn't get much done on the bird feeders. I did put up a new glass hummer feeder that I bought a few weeks ago. They seem to come round all year, so I try to keep food out for them, especially this time, when there isn't much in the way of natural resources out there for them.

    Tomorrow, I will try to get a few of the other feeders washed and disinfected, at least.

    I got a good start on the kitchen today. Almost all of the cabinets have been gone through - I have 3 more to do. DH helped with everything today, which definitely made it go faster and was a lot easier (especially since I can't reach everything, even on the step ladder).

    I still have to finish up with the cookbooks, but I'm getting closer. YAY!

    Also, as we took down the Christmas decorations, we reorganized and consolidated. I managed to get rid of 2 boxes, which was nice.

    My project for going through the entire totes for Christmas is finished. I got rid of more than 1/2 of it. I donated balls and garland etc from my first Christmas tree from 1971, whoa, I need to go through it more often. Now its in its place and I know what I have. I'm not sure what I will do next.
    Pine trees, with their needles pointing up to heaven, represent everlasting light and life.

    Braved the weather and picked up two more feeders from outside. Washed and dried them, and they are sitting in my kitchen, waiting to be filled with seed. One of them is a larger feeder for peanuts or grey stripe sunflower, neither of which I have, so it may have to sit a day or two. The other is a thistle feeder, and I have a bag of thistle ready to go.

    This morning I told DH "our" project for January is to clean and organize the pantry. His response? "Cool! It's going to be like Christmas all over again.....no telling what we'll find in there!"

    I will begin taking down the tree and decorations tomorrow. Hoping to par down quite a bit as they are being packed away.

    My project is to set up a file system. Today I sorted the "Religion" folder and divided everything up into categories such as Bible studies, inspirational articles and poems, current events, church business, etc. I threw away about half of what I had collected and got the rest filed away. I need 4 hanging folders for 4 huge religious categories that I haven't set up yet. I hope to do another folder tomorrow, maybe Gardening. That's a huge one too.

    I'm in on this one....just received a book I ordered on cleaning and organizing.

    January project (can't do too much due to mid-month surgery) is to de-clutter and clean the master bedroom.

    I am a big one for filing away, daylily. I also have folders for each month of the year, where I'll file articles and such that remind me of things that have to be done that month, and if I can buy birthday/holiday cards ahead of time, I stick them in the appropriate month folder, as well.

    That monthly file sounds like a good idea. I think I'll borrow the idea

    I've been wanting to get all my stuff filed for years! This was one of my challenges last year but I only got as far as cleaning out the files I had already started. This winter, I'm really hoping to get the reference files all set up. I can't find anything when I need it and it's frustrating.

    Lots of stuff getting done in the Village guys! Good job!

    I brought home more newspaper from work--going to wrap the remaining geisha girl stuff. Ended up with 3 bags of Goodwill stuff (some of that is Christmas overflow as well).

    I still have a ton of clothes to put away and go through.
