Thirty days hath September,
April, June, and November,
All the rest have thirty-one.
February has twenty-eight,
But leap year coming one in four
February then has one day more.
2018 is not a leap year, thus today, February 28, is the last day of the February minimalist challenge. It has been a good month to get rid of stuff, beginning on day one with this green bath rug, which developed its own story https://nananoyz5forme.com/2018/02/08/be-careful-what-you-ask-for/.
Along the way I’ve surrendered books,
And old makeup containers.
I’ve also bid adieu to spices, shoes, sample products, and a boatload of other stuff that I won’t bore you with.
Don’t worry, the cat didn’t get tossed.
On this 28th day of February there was only one object I deemed perfect to celebrate the finale. Wine corks. Twenty-eight wine corks.
My cropping is lousy, but trust me, there is one cork for every day of a non-leap year February. I worked hard for those corks.
Thanks to everyone who followed my progress this month. Blogging about the challenge made it fun and gave me something to look forward to every day. I’ll continue in March, sparing you all the details, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s that I have junk to spare.
Now, I think I’ll pop the cork on a new bottle of wine and celebrate the end of February properly.
