Happy 100th Post! And a Freebie! [This is a good one, don’t miss out]


Out of curiosity – are you, dear reader, among those who did not think this blog would live to see 100 posts? I know at least part of me was. It’s pretty crazy to think that it’s lived this long… so, happy 100 posts, everybody!

100posts[throws confetti]


Now that that’s out of the way, since it’s customary to do something special as part of the celebratings, I’m going to release the first chapter of my book [remember this ole’ thing from way back then?] to anybody who would like it, just cuz I’m feeling generous today. And I really need more eyeballs on this thing.

The whole shtick of the book, and of this blog, is how to make people’s lives [starting with mine] simpler, less stressful and more wholesome. For me, breakfast is always a source of stress and difficulty, from what to make, right down to remembering to make it. This probably stems from being decidedly not a morning person. My hope is that there will be several of you who read this chapter, and decide that it was either so helpful – or so problematic – that you just have to leave a comment or send me an email letting me know exactly how it affected you.

Anyway, here it is 🙂

Seriously, let me know what you think of the first chapter in the comments, the good, the… parts I could improve. Eherm. I’m sure there will be plenty for everybody to have a turn pointing “fix-it” spots out 🙂

Happy 100 posts! [raises imaginary glass] And to 100 more!

Vlog: Book Review – Organizing for the Creative Person

I never thought that my second vlog entry would be a book review since that’s not my normal (not that I know what my normal is to begin with, but never mind that).  But it was the only thing I’ve been thinking about all week, so it’s what you get this time – my musings on a book about organizing.

Like I said, I was really hoping to like the book.  Perhaps somebody else will benefit from it, and if you want to read it, you can get it here or here or here.

What organizing books have you read that helped you?  Are there particular authors that every homemaker should read?  I’m ready to move on to the next one, so I’d love some suggestions!
