ANOTHER GARAGE




We were good folks yesterday.  We folded and addressed stuff for the Spring Roundup most of the morning.  There was a quick stop at the library sale to grab a childhood favorite book.  All those special books of mine vanished in the Garrison House fire.  There was a quick breakfast, and we came home to tackle to disaster that we call our garage.  We still could get two vehicles into the space, we just couldn't find a thing.

We got rid of the dining room table and 8 chairs.  We got rid of the rolling rack that held my sewing things.  We got rid of that pretty drawing board that wouldn’t stay together at all.  We got rid of a whole truck full of stuff, and we stopped by Home Depot and bought a fourth metal rack.  Today we organize.

After dinner we watched two episodes of “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.”

Yes, we are laughing at ourselves.

  1. Is that the series with the Asian lady? I did watch a few of her episodes but did not get any useful advice in watching, except being more Zen about it. But that applies to everything in life, does it not? Good for you on cleaning, I have more to do today.

    1. You and Margot inspired me. Poor G didn't want to do it, but he likes the results.

  2. As Duck used to say..... "You don't have to caretake dead people's stuff".

  3. Stuff is great...getting rid of stuff is even better....organizing what's left is like Heaven. Realizing you still have too much stuff.........

  4. I am looking forward to moving to a smaller unit and using the excess (after moving) closet shelving to organize my new shed. Laura is in charge of the current shed, and she is a disorganized hoarder. All the hoarding genes I did not inherit are packed in her little body. Sad. Stuff is so limiting.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
