Good Morning Sunshine!

Spring is officially here!

Spring and warm weather! Just have to move into April in a couple weeks and then May!

I am going to begin an approach to getting spring clean-up done. I have done this in the past. Simply by investing one hour at a time. Setting the timer does help because I can see what I have done in an hour’s time and feel good about it! I feel productive. Maybe this will help someone else to get past the procrastination. Domestic things can feel so tedious at times. We do them over and over! Yet they do need to be done. I think of that KISS. I say “Keep it simple “Silly” I am not stupid nor is anyone else. I tend to complicated ideas unless I keep them in check, even cleaning can be over the top I feel.

So___happy spring cleaning! Keep it simple, It will add up! I also take a garbage bag trip and put things in it for treasure or someone else’s treasure, let go of what I do not need. When fill put it in the car.

When the kids were little I wrote the chores on the back of index cards. The rules were if you got it twice in a row, (two days time), you could put it back without comment about what it was. We sat down and we all took a card, there were four of us total so eight cards would be laid down. Dishes, vacuum, dust, trash, toilet and sink in bathroom and one that said Take a trip. This meant simply picking up whatever was on the floor, etc. So that the owners could take care of their pile of stuff. If the kids want to do something without my asking there was a box with things they personally might like. Hair ribbons, pencils, markers, color books, etc. Doing a couple chores was the deal. They could pick up their room a bit, put their laundry down, make their bed with new sheets.

And if they all pitched in with clean up, and things got done we went places like the beach or park.

This worked well, they would fight over doing the extra stuff. I would have to give ideas out then.

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
