Last weekend was Mother’s Day weekend – and I took time to fix up a few organizational areas. Little niggly things, not major re-organization.
“The trouble with organizing a thing is that pretty soon folks get to paying more attention to the organization than to what they’re organized for.”
Laura Ingalls Wilder
I dislike over-organization. And our house is reasonably organized anyway. But there were a few things that didn’t work, and needed fixing up, in order for our life to flow more smoothly.
I kept this organization low key, so that I didn’t fall into the trap that Mrs Wilder mentions .
I began the day, Mother’s Day, with homemade pancakes made by Anthony. You can see dh and I at the table, waiting for pancakes.
And then the organizing started with a placing a picture on the wall. One of Our Lady of Good Counsel, placed near the kitchen, above the phone.
