It was the Easter bonnet parade at the kids school the other day. We spent a week making these! X won first place, and Cate took second in their classes. We do go overboard with the hats, but we have fun making them. Cate's last year is next year and we already know what we're making. It's too amibitious, in my opinion, but we'll try.

So the 40 days of cleaning was harder than I thought. Each day in the beginning I went mad, tidying one or two cupboards or drawers. Then I got bored around day 18. Tomorrow is Easter and while the house is considerably less cluttered, I could have done better. But we went traveling for a week and had houseguests another week, so I kinda let things slip.

But, I still have the list of things I wanted to accomplish, tidying-wise, and I plan to continue my quest until it's done. It may take another 40 days and 40 nights, but I'm determined to get this place clutter free.

The first thing I want to do is chuck out these bonnets to make room for the next project!!

Happy Easter!
