A Messy Perfectionist

That's me!

I didn't know that was my title, but it is.

You can read about it over at Home Sanctuary.

But here's why I'm really writing this morning.

Since I'm trying to do this whole "find joy in making my home a sanctuary" thing and also learning to do minimal maintenance, this morning I found I had already completed Rachel Anne's small thing for today without knowing it.

See, we've been doing some painting, sanding and re-finishing of old tables, hanging drywall in the basement where it was torn out because we had a leak last May, etc., and there have been tools and cans of finish and painters tape and etc. etc. etc. all over the house. This morning, I scooped them all up and put them into one handy bag and put that bag aside so we could use the things again, but didn't over-obsess and put them all away in their proper places. Then I read Rachel Anne's post about doing something "good enough," and thought, "hooray! I just did that!"

Boy, am I starting to feel pretty good about myself!
