Funny "packrat-itis" was mentioned. Just this morning, while in the basement, I looked around to see what should be thrown out. I concluded I'll let the next owners decide! However, I'm not at all like those "collectors" shown on TV's American Pickers. Some are in their nineties and can't get rid of anything.
I see your message!
Packrat.... apart from books it's not so bad, but I must admit, the books are everywhere!
I made a mistake and clicked on the Delete or End Receiving, If you do not get this message, I screwed myself up. If you get it, I continue to share ideas with you. If you don't get this, I want to rejoin.
Snow, 3 inches of it this past week, with a light snifter last night.
I'm afflicted with packrat-itis as well, Spud. Add to that, when I turned 80 I told myself I was going to do only what I wanted to in the house; 50 years from now, who will know the difference.
It now occurs to me, as all my children, grandchildren, and great-grand-children work to clear out my home. It is cluttered, dirty, and a lot of it. They will remember me for my house when I moved out.
Rhonda and Travis, Larry's son, are moving in by the end of the year and will care for it until I die and the house will return to value after the recession/depression is over. The land will hold its value, cash and investments will not.
Laura maintains her home as I once did. Everything is dusted, mirrors clean, stuff put away, floors clean, and I love it. Someone trained her well.
Because I'm a packrat, and have a hard time throwing away anything that might be useful, It's been 25 years since I've had room in my garage for the van.
It's been snowing here for almost 2 weeks and I've procrastinated putting a tarpaulin over my van.
Yesterday, it stopped snowing and the temperature finally got a few degrees above freezing, so I brushed all the snow off and chipped all the ice off my van, let it sit overnight to evaporate the residual water, then put a tarp over it this morning.
Three years ago, I purchased a tarp the right size, and 25 magnets with handles on them to keep the tarp in place.
I found that's less trouble than scraping ice off my windows, but still a lot of trouble, so that explains the procrastination.
Blizzard! Well, not really. But it is snowing and howling. No way I'm going outdoors. I've had my hot oatmeal (with peaches and black raspberries) and coffee, so I'm warm on the inside. Great day to listen to Sunday Baroque and watch football. Keep cozy.
Sunday morning and I don't even think about church anymore thanks to evolution giving me a reasonable brain.
Sunny and cold here, around freezing point. I need to turn over my earthenware pots in the roof garden, before the rainwater freezes and breaks them, but I'm busy writing lessons for next week. Waving to all of you!
