Sometimes I feel like all I ever do is pick up, straighten, de-clutter, organize, wash up, tidy etc. Lucky for me I do enjoy domestic work although I could live without folding laundry and cleaning the bathroom.
I have a morning housekeeping routine of making the bed, emptying the dishwasher and putting things away left out the night before. But sometimes I don’t get to those things and dishes pile up, beds are left rumpled and floors un-swept.
In a small house un-kept spaces can feel overwhelming. But with a home full of things that I absolutely love and that bring me joy I find even messes can be beautiful.
