Less Confusion Equals Less Stress

Continuing with my quest for simplicity and harmony-

The other day I got my kitchen drawers cleaned out and organized along with a couple of cabinets.

Today, some computer files, bookmarks, and flash drives, pertaining to all things crochet and crafting,  were deleted.

Poof!  Gone!  

Less confusion=less stress.

The other day while cleaning out the closet in my computer room, I found a book tucked way back on a shelf. I had forgotten that I even had it.


It contains five complete novels by Charlotte and Emily Bronte:

  • Jane Eyre
  • Shirley
  • Wuthering Heights
  • Villette
  • The Professors

It looks like I found my summer reading.  Although I have already read Wuthering Heights, I am looking forward to the other four novels.

While I still have more to do with “simplifying”,  today was a pretty relaxing day.  I made a large pot of chili con carne and hubby put together a huge tossed salad.  While the chili was simmering, I sat on the front stoop, in my rocker, and read for a while.

Right now I am reading , Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham. I started reading it a while ago, but put it down as I had too much on my mind and couldn’t concentrate on the words.  I saw the movie when I was a child and forget most of it and I know that a movie will never do the book justice.


my read shelf:
Liz Woodward's book recommendations, liked quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists (read shelf)

In spite of the fact that I am still feeling pensive, I am off to make a cup of tea and happily ponder about the coming days ahead.  Hanging on to a little hope is what keeps me wanting to go forward.

It Just Makes Me Happy

One thought on “Less Confusion Equals Less Stress

  1. I love the Bronte books! I have them on my Kindle! I am all for simple life, and I still have a ways to go, but without so much stuff around, it so so much easier! Is it hard to “simplify”. The computer?. I am not savvy on clearing stuff and files. I am making pasta fazool è for dinner today. It will be comforting with all the heavy rain we are getting, then snow tonight! Can you believe it!
