Are You Trying To Do It All? Why?

Why use a concierge service? Because trying to “do it all” is really hard…and stressful.

Like, trying to get to your kid’s soccer game (before it’s over!) when you still have to get across town to the dry cleaners before they close.

Or, trying to get a plumber for the clogged sink in the kitchen when you’re already running late to a business meeting.

Does This All Sound Familiar?

I get it, the constant pull you live with and the feelings of overwhelm, guilt, inadequacy and frustration that comes with it all.

Home and Business Concierges can help you with life, not just your lists!

I Help Make Decisions ~

I have clients ask me “do you ever see the mess, dirt and trash when you go into people’s cluttered homes?” I always reply with “Nope, I just see a whole lot of decisions not made.” The reasons people continue to have a relationship with their clutter is many. In the last 25 years of organizing homes and offices, I found that many times people just don’t know what to do with their stuff. I have seen some great “Start & Stop” processes in my coaching, you know where someone did take the time to organize all the mail sitting in a mound on the far end of the kitchen counter. But, then it becomes overwhelming and doing nothing seems more reasonable then deciding on the right place to put something. You just need to make a decision . . . right or wrong it doesn’t matter.

You know you have this person in your circle of family & friends – don’t lie!

The ones that has that cookie tin in their hands, the tin with the really cute picture of a kitten and snowman looking adorable. They are thinking maybe someone in the family can use it? Maybe they will use it next Christmas. They walk it around the house trying to find that perfect home for it, taking it and fitting it in the bookcase – damn it’s just a little too wide. Then, they try to put it on a table, it doesn’t look right with the Spring decor. Then they see a spot, they pick up speed as they dash across the room to the same exact freakin’ spot they took it from. So, now we know where the new home is – It’s called “Indecision Island” where all the misfits of the clutter end up, it’s really called the kitchen table!

Getting There

Make decisions in small, daily steps to clean and organize a space. Pick a small space like the kitchen table or one kitchen counter, keep consistent with daily small organizing tasks. One tool I have used with my clients is once the space is organized, clean it – make it sparkle. That small task will give you a sense of accomplishment and boost your mental health.

Make a Decision Today, Don’t be the person carrying the cookie tin around the house!

Gluten-Free Chocolate Cookies

These cookies are on the sweeter side due to all the powdered sugar added in, so make sure to use unsweetened cocoa powder!

Makes 15 cookies

Ingredients: –

2/3 cups unsweetened cocoa powder –

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar –

3 egg whites –

1 tbsp vanilla extract –

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

*To make them Christmas Festive – melt Nestle Toll House White Chocolate Chips and drizzle over cookies – add christmas sprinkles*

Allow the cookies to set on baking mat, forming a sort of hardened “crust” for 30 minutes before baking. This is a vital step because if not done the cookies will expand too much in the oven

Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes

ENJOY . . . . . .

How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .

Gluten-Free Living – A Delicious Dish

Champagne Shrimp Risotto

SOURCE: https://www.bettycrocker.com

Ingredients

1 lb uncooked medium shrimp in shells, thawed if frozen

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1/2 cup brut champagne, dry white wine or Progresso™ chicken broth
1 1/2 cups uncooked Arborio or other short-grain white rice
2 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton), warmed
1 cup clam juice or water, warmed
2 cups chopped arugula, watercress or spinach
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Chopped fresh parsley, if desired

Steps

  • 1.
    Peel shrimp. Make a shallow cut lengthwise down back of each shrimp; wash out vein.
  • 2.
    In 12-inch skillet or 4-quart Dutch oven, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Add shrimp; cook uncovered about 8 minutes, turning once, until shrimp are pink. Remove shrimp from skillet; keep warm.
  • 3.
    Add champagne to onion in skillet; cook until liquid has evaporated. Stir in rice. Cook uncovered over medium heat about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until edges of rice kernels are translucent. In 4-cup glass measuring cup, mix chicken broth and clam juice; pour 1/2 cup mixture over rice. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until liquid is absorbed. Repeat with remaining broth mixture, 1/2 cup at a time, until rice is tender and creamy.
  • 4.
    About 5 minutes before risotto is done, stir in shrimp, arugula, cheese and pepper. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.

    EXPERT TIP:

  • Even though you may be tempted, don’t rush the process! When making risotto, adding the broth a little at a time ensures that the dish will be creamy while allowing the grains to remain separate.Leave out the shrimp and serve this as a lovely main course for your vegetarian friends.

*Shrimp and Rice create an excellent source of iron, a mineral important for transporting oxygen to working muscles*
