Yesterday am before the wrestling tournament it was 3 degrees F. I snapped this photo quickly from the parking lot at the High School. Today it was -6 when I first woke up. Not sure if I want to try to snow shoe today. I still have my friends shoes. :) We planned I would return them this week.

Since November, this is where I have been spending much of my time on Wednesday evenings and Saturday , yes all day, for tournaments. It was hard for me to watch at first, but I think I am getting into it now and it isn't so scary to watch. Wrestling is a most difficult sport physically and mentally. It is a sport of good sportsmanship too which I like. Bad sportsmanship is highly frowned upon and will get you hissed by the crowd.

Here is my latest CWDQ block. They are getting easier to make. I think I have the paper piecing thing down. I am making this a very scrappy quilt.

The question of the day: How do you get papers, closets and the house organized? Any and all responses are welcome because I am having a bit of trouble trying to get started. I am weeding through papers and files in the house first. I am trying to organize like things together to determine storage. My problem is now I have like items in several places due to space and not organizing them together. Help, I have never been this disorganized before. I guess it comes with living in the same house for 10 years. In the past we moved every couple of years and that forces me to purge and get organized.

Your photo of your winter view is gorgeous. I love the blue sky against the greys of the snow covered landscape.

Organization, ugh! In my world, the mess gets worse before it gets better. I tackle one thing at a time. Break it down into small pieces. It sounds like you have papers, etc in several rooms that need to be brought together. Be brutal about purging - this was especially hard for me with paperwork.

It sounds so cold! It is snowing here and not much warmer. I'm not very good with organization but my husband bought a file cabinet a few years ago. We didn't really have a good place to store paperwork and this has been a big help.
