I've been trying to get back to the purging/decluttering. We had another water pipe leak downstairs and while I was cleaning up the water which had fallen onto a computer desk...which has been just a catch-all lately...I was taking a really good look around and decided that a lot of stuff needs to go. Too much has been accumulated for too long.
The stacks of magazines? This is just part of my collection. They need to go, I've accumulated way too many. It's always been hard for me to throw one away. And why, I ask myself, would I want to spend so much of my time going through each one and clip out recipes and photos of interesting things I might (or most likely will never) try out some day?
I talked about age in my last post. I think I need to remember my age and forget clipping ideas that I will never get around to. You know that you can find about anything you want online these days. Recipes and decor ideas are plentiful. Many of the best ideas are on blogs.
About aging...from the comments on the last post, I think the main point we all agree on is to keep active. Stormy and I have been
BG rode with me to the nearest town that has a WalMart yesterday after he came home from work so I could get some things we were almost out of and he kept the car running and warm while I shopped. We buy a lot of cat food, 30 pound bags at a time. There are several feral cats that come to our house for food and we do try to tame some of them when we can and find them homes.
While I was in WalMart, I saw many Valentine's Day goodies in the grocery section...the decorated cookies, cakes, and many beautiful flower bouquets. I usually tell BG not to bother with flowers...am I outta my mind, or what? Really, I'd rather go out for a nice dinner. Sometimes he'll ignore me and get them anyway. Would you be disappointed if you didn't get flowers on Valentine's Day? I'll probably make one of the three above desserts for my sweetheart. After we get back home from dinner, we can have dessert while we watch a movie. That is a good evening in my book!
If I don't get back here before Sunday, have a Happy Valentine's Day! Love to all...
