Who Made This Mess?

Did you ever have one closet that was utterly a mess? I spent the day cleaning the closet in my office. How does this happen? I'm pretty sure the fairies come at night and mess it up.
Let's see....canvas bags that I use for shopping that are supposed to be in my car, scrapbooking stuff, storage containers that are all labeled from my last cleaning frenzy that now do not contain the right items, science kits, curriculum that needs to be filed away, an old pocketbook, last years day planner. Do I need all this stuff?
Holy cow-here it is spread out on my desk. But let me just say that I used the Dust remover on our keyboards today and there was enough cat hair in them to weave a coat. Of course, then it was all over the desk and I had to clean the desk. Does anyone need a box of 500 rubber bands? I also found the manual to my camera-maybe now I can figure out how to help my very blurry pictures.
But, look at the after cleaning moment. Everything in its proper containers, labeled and put away. I can now reach everything and can find it. Tomorrow I move on to my bedroom closet. If I'm not back blogging soon, come looking for me please.
I think my foggy lyme brain is improving. I spent the weekend reading a book. In months past, I was having difficulty getting past the first paragraph. Yesterday I spent the day reading, The Five People You Meet in Heaven. I fell in love with this book. Granted it was easy reading but I also loved Tuesdays with Morrie too. I was just pleased to read again, I've missed it so much. I've had a stack of books on my nightstand just waiting for me to dig in.
I'm also dying to get out in my yard and start our spring cleanup. We've had tons of branches from our Willow Tree fall this year and the yard is just a mess. My garden is calling me and I spent some time going thru seed catalogs and plotting out new beds in my garden. More gourds this year as well as some loofah for fun. I'll plant my sunflowers elsewhere this year to save room in the garden. Last fall, we planted two apple trees, a cherry tree and four blueberry bushes so I'm anxious to see what we get this year. We have the fertilizer from the chicken poop too to use in the garden. Last year the soil was not that great but like all good things, takes time to develop.
