How Can It Be Thursday?

I do feel as if I’ve fallen off the blogging bandwagon a bit in recent weeks.  I just realized that I’ve missed two What I Ate Wednesdays in a row.  Not good. I realized that yesterday and dutifully took a picture of my lunch when we went out.  Of course, I’m saving it for next week!

I’ve had my head in a box, or a bag or under a rock for quite a while now.  For a couple of reasons, my progress has slowed, but I am NOT giving up.  I had been going full force for several weeks and I suppose I needed this break.  I’ve done some smaller projects and to his credit, Ralph has gotten some things done which I appreciate.

I was proud of myself that on Monday the recycling went out with my big Yard Sale signs that I’ve had for quite a few years.



You may remember them from this summer’s yard sale.  I’ve decided…No more yard sales for me.  I did a lot of work for very little return and I figured if there will be no more sales, I don’t need them anymore.  Even they were hard to part with because Ralph had made them for me, but what did I need them for now?  I was surprised what was behind them when I moved them…a Lot of stuff I can get rid of!  Love it!

I’ve decided that when the time comes that we’re ready to leave the house, I’m going to use a friend’s suggestion.  An ad on Craigslist that says For Sale…Contents of House.  Whatever is left that I don’t want, will be for sale.  If it doesn’t go, I make a call to the thrift store where I’ve been donating everything.  They even pick up!  I love it.

Just to give you an idea of how things are going…this is what my poor porch looks like after all of my foraging.



I haven’t been neat about it, I just need to get them out of my way.  The boxes in the back corner are all packed. In fact they are some of the boxes I went through last week to weed out books.  Those are ready to Go when we go. These in the front will be re-packed with things to go with us.

Funny thing is, I was feeling I was heading for a slump but now that I talk about it, I’m feeling much better.  Every day…If I just keep working at it every day…I’ll get there.

Happy Thursday!

  1. I’m trying to get rid of everything in my house because my dad and mom were hoarders and I was the one that had to clean out their houses. They were divorced. I won’t do that to my kids. But be careful of Craig’s list. Meet them at a public place to sell them stuff. Have a great weekend.

  2. No slump for you! 🙂 Give yourself scheduled days off.Even the retired sometimes need a ‘weekend’

  3. You’re still doing great Fran and kudos to you for showing the porch picture. Remember to give yourself some down time too; it’s great for recharging the mind and the body.
