With January around the corner I'm in a mood to organize. The stores are featuring storage bins on sale so it's a good time to open a closet and clean out. I know it's called Spring Cleaning but I like to work at getting my ducks in a row in January. My step mother used to always tell me "Everything has it's place and everything in it's place".
I try to avoid feeling overwhelmed by breaking my projects down into little itty bitty pieces. Today's goal was to put all my Christmas and Halloween fabric in one bin.

Mission accomplished and it wasn't even all that painful.

The weather has been beautiful here for the last few days. All the snow from a few weeks ago quickly melted, and we are back to red rocks and blue skies.
This is the view of the mountain right behind my house looking out from my backyard.

Just north-west of our property is a beautiful area called "Castle Rock". You may have seen it briefly as a background shot in the movie "High School Musical 2" that was filmed nearby.
Next summer when I'm whining about the heat just remind me how fabulous the winters are here in Southern Utah. I've been reading about all the blizzards and storms going on all around the country and I'm wishing I could fit you all in St. George. I'm feeling a little guilty and spoiled. Mr. Cactus even went out and did a little golfing today.

Sometimes it's just getting started that is the hardest part with organizing!

What a lovely view from your backyard. I've never been out west but maybe will change that this year!
