Again this year, my amaryllis bulb was planted in October to have it ready to bloom in December but it did not show itself until January. Too late for the holidays but standing tall in all its glory for the start of the new year. It brought some beauty to the month which normally feels dull due to the Christmas decorations having come down.
This week the blooms faded as February began. I see a tiny spot coming up again so have to wait to see if a second stem will come up into flower yet.
The language of flowers...amaryllis is the symbol of pride and splendid beauty
We tallied up our decluttering results for the entire month of January...
10 items thrown out
1 suit donated to clothes bank
8 items taken to thrift shop
5 items taken to chemical drop (old paint and glue)
21 items sold for a total of 363,50 euros
We are thrilled with the start of our year's goal to clean up our home and life. I hope we can keep up the momentum as the year progresses. Each month, I will tally up what we have achieved. I am so excited to get rid of unused items in order to make room for things we want to do in the house. More about those plans will come this year.
