Normally, I don't handle changes very well. I fret about them in advance, stew over them during the process, and afterwards think perhaps I could have handled it some other way.
The above sounds like something serious is about to happen - well...
Nothing big is going to change - except some of the decorations in my house. You know you can live with some things for years and you love them...then you walk thru that room and all of a sudden those items look horrible and you are so tired of it.
Well, this has happened with some of my stuff...yes stuff is what is is...at one time I was pleased with the look and affect - but now I am bored with it.
With fall decorating here on our doorstep and then Christmas right around the corner I decided it was time to purge my home of some of the items I found that they no longer brought me the joy they once did.
S0 what did I do...went to Goodwill and hit several yard sales...found a few items that might be workable...will just have to wait and see. Found out our local Goodwill will be closing the middle of November...that does not make me happy as I have found so many "treasures" there. Oh I know I could have gone to some "expensive" stores and selected bits and pieces - but then I would feel like they would have to live in my house forever to justify the expense...by shopping at lesser priced places is when I grown tired of them or they don't look as I had envisioned I can put them in a garage sale.
This afternoon took two arm loads of "stuff" to the shed - they will become part of daughter's garage sale merchandise . Was going to get out the fall decorations - but the temperature must have been over 100 in there - the outside temp is a bit over 90. Anyway, too hot for me to spend anytime in there. My storage shed is like so many sheds - you have to move boxes to get to the boxes you need.
So now the house looks a bit void of some decorations - as soon as the weather cools I will put out fall items...then Christmas.
In the mean time I will be on the pursuit of new items to use in decorating. Of course, I won't know what I am searching for until I spot it.
