My closet is heaving a sigh of relief! — This week I did a major clothing clean out. I do this every year yet I still have a ton for the donation box. Where do all these clothes come from? Long ago I got rid of anything that wasn’t comfortable or I didn’t love. Now I’m thinning out the “work” clothes that I liked. Since retiring I don’t need a lot of blazers or multiple black tanks tops to fit under them. Sayonara baby! The whole house seems lighter now but I didn’t get rid of them all…yet. My closet is looking bare.
The end of the summer for sure – This past week I pulled out the tomato and basil plants. The tomatoes were just about done and the basil had bloomed out. I am hoarding one lone stalk of basil with five delicious smelling leaves for something special. Our local corn shed has closed for the season. For the beloved husband that is always the sign! This coming week it’s out with the annual flowers. I need pumpkins! (or pumpkin lattes! or pumpkin bread! or pumpkin pie!)
Rain, rain – The good news is that we are not getting Hurricane Joaquin. The other good news is that we have gotten a good drenching. We’ve had several inches in a couple of days. Most of it has been slow and steady. The good rain. It’s been dry here so we needed it although many parts of the east coast are experiencing severe flooding.
Wallpaper is up! – Wahoo! The third and last part of my summer kitchen project is done. Everything isn’t quite back in place yet so no photo. It is amazing how just a little freshening up can make everything (including me) feel new.
Bits and pieces – Thanks for all your kind wishes about the beloved husband’s drilled finger. I heard him playing his guitar yesterday so although it’s still a big booger, he can manage. I want to shout out to my blogger friend Susannah who donated to a cat rescue in Jake’s name. What a kind thing to do. She’s a New Yorker who breaks the stereotypes, running around doing good deeds for many.
So, how was your week?
