Sometimes you realize how many “things” you have in your life and that none of that stuff is what brings happiness to your life. Now, I will admit, there are things that help with happiness.
My shoes. Ah my shoes. In three loads to the Salvation Army nary a shoe was taken. No need. Either the shoes needed to go to the trashcan due to holes in the soles and not at all repairable or I wear them. The Husband wears all of his too. He has only 1 less pair of golf shoes than I do. Can’t wait to bust out that little piece of trivia!
Yarn. I have de-stashed a tremendous amount in the past two years. I can use to get rid of about ½ of what I have. I will do that later. I’m done to the “good” yarns that need a “good” home, not just to be donated willy nilly. Or I could call my SIL’s friend and let her stash dive.
My Stained Glass Stash. I did it. I posted on Craig’s List and I think I have someone who will take my glass, supplies and patterns in exchange for a bit of glass work.
Next I need to arrange the home pick up from Purple Heart. The home gym is going, a dresser, desk, table and chairs and miscellaneous clothing I missed during the first pass.
After all the de-cluttering is complete, we need to take a long, serious or short, serious look at our buying habits. Why do we have two complete sets of pots and pans? Which ones do we use? Do I need 75 beer glasses? 112 wine glasses? To look in the cabinets, you’d think 12 people live here. Don’t even get me started on the coffee mugs. Crazy people live in this house. Crazy beverage drinking people.
I’m not all about the packing and de-cluttering. I’ve been hitting the gym. Results are showing in the muscles but the fat is being stubborn. I just keep positive and know that I’m doing all the right stuff and it will leave. One day.
Knitting. I’m cruising on the smock top. But I need your help. I’ve lost almost 4 inches around my chest. I don’t have the back roll anymore. Hooray! I tried to do a quick decrease down to the next size but I fear the bottom is going to be WAY too big. Should I rip and reknit the whole thing? (I’m about 12 rows into the top pattern and knitting in the round.) or just go with the large bottom. Help!
Happy Monday! Happy Knitting!
