We are up to the letter L in The A-Z Blogging Challenge. For L, I have found some decluttering lists to help us all so we don’t miss anything.
The Blog, Passports and Parenting has a Konmari Checklist. I know I am not a big fan of her method, but the list is good. Click here.
Arin Solange at Home also has a great free printable list. Click here.
We are joining Feline Friday now hosted by Messymimi.  
My flashback is from last April, my sweet Angel Emmy.

  1. OH, BOY…mama printed that list right away and I’ll bet she will go around the house touching everything to see if it is joyful!!! What a great thought for decluttering. At least I know I’ll be here a long time, haha,

  2. Your little orange kitty has lots of fun running over the blog page,LOL!!

    Angel Emmy was such a sweetie.

    I am drawing a blank on the fill-ins this week…maybe because I had to work late, and then do a bunch of chores when I got home.

    But…I am thankful we got our new fridge and its great to hear it humming away as it keeps our food cold/frozen.

  3. Sounds to me like you will be able to WRITE a decluttering book after going through the experience!!! Love your fill-ins……

    Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam

  4. Good answers. I don’t like watching the news either. It is always doom and gloom so I read it on my phone where I can decide what I want to hear about. That is a sweet flashback of Angel Emmy.

  5. I do enjoy your answers. Thanks for fun time
    Angel Emmy, You are so sweet with a rabbit. Your pawrents must miss you so much

  6. Wonderful picture of the lovely Emmy with her bunny. I stopped listening and watching the “bad”
    news a few years ago. If it does not pop up in my face when I sign onto the computer, I don’t see it. I feel bad that I have become this way, as I know I need to pray for those in need.

  7. My wife used to watch the news every morning while getting ready. I started complaining because it was 95 percent bad news and it did us no good to know it. So we both agreed to stop watching news on television. That was around 2016. Now I just read headlines and will read a news story if it seems interesting.

  8. I would like to thank your Mom for being such a good Mom and Grammie. Emmy you are missed♥ A sweet photo to file to my memories of the Mewoing Crew.
    My Fill-Ins~
    1. Trying to lose a few pounds is like nailing jello to a wall.
    2. I could use a break from the days and days of wind.
    3. I’d like to thank my lucky stars for the cats I have had in my life.
    4. Just in case I have not said it enough, I have lost all patience with people and their cell phones who prefer to talk/text someone else while they are spending time with somebody right in front of them in person.
    Thank you, Ellen!
