Minute by minute

my thoughts on making the most out of all of life's minutes…

Flowers in the attic!

Leave a comment

Do you remember that book series that was so popular in the ’80’s?  Flowers in the Attic.

The story of Cathy and Chris, two teen-aged siblings forced to live in hiding in the attic of their grandparents’ as their mom and grandmother hide them from their evil grandfather.

The first book came out in 1979 and was written by V.C. Andrews and I remember reading it when I was around fourteen and fifteen years old. It was a whole series of twists and turns, lies and love and tar in Cathy’s hair.  I’ve always remembered the tar.

The movie came out in 1987 and I remember not being able to wait to see it.  Only to be disappointed, of course…the movie is never as good as the book.


Why am I reminiscing this afternoon – – because my attic is so clean right now, that I could easily house two teenagers and their twin siblings.

I have an organized attic!  

How is it going on your word of the month?

Recall – this month’s word – ORGANIZE.

I’m wondering how it is going for you?

Two weekends ago I started organizing my attic.  I pulled everything out, sorted through things I didn’t want or need or use anymore.  Then I put everything back in order of “to store and keep” “luggage and other things I need a few times a year” and “seasonal”.  It feels so good!!!  Or course the rest of my house is still a mess as I sort through more stuff and get it ready for Craig’s List or sending it off to the Good Will.


Looks like my attic threw up in my living room. Geez that’s a lot of stuff!

I hope you’re working on three projects that need organizing.  They don’t have to be as huge as an attic clean out.  Maybe you have a junk drawer that needs some organizing.  Maybe your bathroom closet could use some help – throw away all those expired medications once and for all.  Or maybe you’ll tackle your filing system like I plan on doing for my next goal.

Quick! – list one thing in the comments below that could use some organizing in your home or office.  What would it take for you to get started on it this afternoon?
