T-13 #45 and HF #107 - Trashy Stuph ...

Make Room for Small Reflections
I shared another Witty Wednesday at Happily Retired Gal
... and a little Haiku bonus ... just because.

Here are 13 pics
I've taken while clearing out
clutter from my home.

I have resisted
sharing 'clutter' photographs,
but I've made progress

and taking pictures
like these allows me to see
that I'm gaining ground

getting rid of 'stuph'
even though my surroundings
remain quite cluttered.

If I do not quit
I am certain I won't fail ...
thus I continue

daily sessions to
clear the clutter from my home
recycling daily

filling up these bins
bit by bit each day until
excess 'stuph' is gone.

It's been quite a while
since I've posted T-13
but I have noticed

even though there is
no official T-13
any more, there are

some continuing
to post 'thirteens' on Thursday ...
Check the folks below:
Alice Audrey at Alice's Restaurant
Brenda at the Otherworld Diner
Colleen at Loose Leaf Notes
Izzy 'n Emmy
Janet at Fond of Snape
Mary at the Randomness of Me
Tamy at 3 Sides of Crazy
Sue at Life in the Urban Zoo
and perhaps others I don't know about.
If you're playing, be sure to say so
& leave your link.

Apparently there's a new T-13 site!
Click for others participating in Haiku Friday this week.

Looks like you've had a BIG clearout! :)

George said...

I think you're making great progress. Can I get you to come here when you finish at your house?

Anonymous said...

That is a big cleaning for sure! Very creative TT :)

Funny you should post this; I've been in the mood to declutter for a couple of weeks now. All kinds of stuff is getting tossed. About time, too.

Tink said...

Wow, you've been busy cleaning! I should... ;) The haiku's are good!!
Thanks for visiting my TT. :)

Hootin Anni said...

Ya, in a way, I miss Thursday thirteeners...but it sure makes my day easier.

Your 13 is quite creative, but that of course, does NOT surprise...you're always creative.

Maude Lynn said...

I was looking for Thursday Thirteen just a couple of days ago!

Sometimes, I think that my excess is reproducing while I sleep!

Mary said...

I love the haiku, and good for you for tackling your clutter!

Joyce said...

Thank you, Virginia, for reminding me about Thursday 13. I just got a post up, combining it with Thankful Thursday.

Glad to hear that your de-cluttering project is moving right along. :)

SandyCarlson said...

That's an impressive amount of work you got done. You've inspired me to get to decluttering my own world!

Michelle said...

Wow, that's a lot of clutter. I need to do some clutter cleaning in my basement. Yesterday I just came across the New TT site. I wish I had saved the link so I could send it to you. Sorry. I'm excited that it's starting up again. I'll have to work on one for next week. Have a great weekend.

Karen said...

I cannot stress how much lighter you will feel as you clear out! By ridding yourself of the old stuff, you are opening yourself to the new. It really is a kind of freedom.

NicciN said...

Good for you! Thanks for the photos. It will inspire me to handle some of my clutter.

Good job! I'd try to declutter but I can't find any empty things to put stuff in. Bwaah. But thanks for the encouragement...

Mike Golch said...

since you are so kind to comment on my blog I have some "goodies" for you on my blog.

Anonymous said...

I, too, am in the process of de-junking my home. Where does all of this stuff come from, I ask you.

Happy TT, and keep up the good work.

Momisodes said...

Wow! Looks like you really are doing a great job. Good for you for organizing it all for recycle :)

Carole Burant said...

I know it's a lot of work decluttering but isn't it just such a GREAT feeling?!! I'm still in the process of doing that but I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel now:-) Keep up the good work! xoxo
