from another trip to Goodwill. Each trip feels so wonderful as I get rid of more and more 'stuff'. How did we ever accumulate this much 'stuff'??? I suppose after 25 years of marriage and 3 kids (who have all moved in and out several times) it does add up. I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
One box I went through today was my cross-stitch box... full of pattern books; DMC thread and fabric. (And several UFO's!) I use to cross stitch like crazy. I have kept my threads and a few of the UFO's that I can see maybe someday finishing, and am parting with the rest. Gosh, do you suppose in another 20 years or so I'll be sorting through my knitting stuff thinking back on when I used to knit??? (And what will I be in to then???)
We had a very relaxing weekend. Worked in the yard; in the basement; had some friends over for a BBQ and helped our neighbor put hay up in the barn for the coming winter. (Always a big job!) While over at her house, Alice told us to make sure and take home a few sunflowers that were growing from her compost pile - she promised that they would 'sing' to us and make us happy. And indeed they have. They really are a bright, fun flower!! And if I remember right, my grandma used to have a singing sunflower that sat on her piano. Very cute!
Sumo has decided to boycott eating in the garage. We've always fed the dogs out there and there has never been a problem. But this past weekend he refused to eat anything. Finally I brought his food indoors and wa-la he gobbled it down. It's good to be King, isn't it Sumo?
Today is the day that an article came out in our paper about Steve and I training for the marathon. You can check it out here.
Back to the basement for a few more hours of sorting.
Until Next Time......
