It has been a week since I posted. what have I been doing- been busy - but probably not that anyone could tell.
Finally got all the Christmas decorations down and packed away - the shed is full of my stuff. I store most of our holiday decoration items there, stuff collected for a garage sale, future items I may or may not use for daily decorating in the house, my quilt scraps, and some other misc items.
Last week took a double chest of drawers to my daughter's house - with the new baby coming they needed the chest more than we did. Of course, all the items in it had to be dealt with. Some went to trash, others to garage sale box, rest was sorted and put into boxes or another small chest of drawers.
These last two paragraphs brings to mind how much "STUFF" I have. A lot of the stuff I don't want to get rid of as the cost of replacing it (if I should need or want it) would be sky high. Some of the items makes me wonder why I am keeping it...old birthday cards for instance. Do you suppose anyone will read them once I am gone? I file them away along with other cards we receive....no I don't keep each and every one...but just those from the kids. What do you readers do? Another thing, if I don't get rid of some of my stuff now -when the weather gets nice and people are having garage sales I will want to go...got to have room for the new treasures.
Did work in the yard yesterday...was so nice to have a rake in my hand and hear the lawn mower humming in the air. Leon was mowing the leaves - I raked them away from flower beds to make them easier to get to for mowing. Also noticed the tulips and jonquils are poking the small green tips through the ground. We really need rain...has been a long time since we have had any moisture to speak of.
Have a great day - while I figure out how to accomplish more, lose weight, solve all political problems, obtain world peace, decide on what vegetable for lunch, pray, quilt, sew, pamper my husband and what ever else that might pop into my head.
