Very hot yesterday. I shut the house up in the early morning hours and went off to the Discovery Shop to push books around. I found a few books, but a massive number of donations that filled the back room which took my work hours instead.
I was so grateful to see those donations. Most non-profits are finding that they are getting fewer donations. We have been one of those with an empty sorting room and pleas to the public for donations. I asked a friend who works for Father Joe’s organization about their donations, and they told me things were still slow. We give the things we can’t use to Father Joe. The trickle down principal: high end thrift to low end thrift. Father Joe’s is in trouble.
Then instead of going out into the 90 degree heat, I toured Target for a few things. There were crowds of people shopping at Target. I shopped slowly riding in my motorized shopping cart to keep my hip as quiet as possible while that shot wears off. It’s a newly redesigned store with new stuff and new displays to sucker us in. And it looks good too.
Today will be another day to hide from the heat. G suggested I take the laptop down to the garage and do laundry while spending my day in the cool of the garage. No climbing stairs that way. Marta will be moving dust around up here today with all the doors and windows open to the stifling Santa Ana airs. I might just do that. Did I say that?
