Hello! What a wonderful day we had yesterday with spring-like temperatures and warm sunshine. The sun has been shining the last few days and ending with some beautiful sunsets. I've been finding myself singing this song 🎶...sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy...🎵while I'm alone. Wouldn't want to sing where anyone can hear me...even the kitties cover their ears when I'm singing. ☺
I'm still working on going through my stuff and want to get rid of that which I don't use, need or love. Right now, I'm still working on the books. Next up are the stacks of magazines that I thought I'd go through someday and cut out recipes and ideas. "Someday" never seems to arrive, so I'm going to be brave and toss them out. Yeah, right. We'll see how that goes.
The hardest thing for me is getting rid of those items I don't especially want but have somewhat of an emotional attachment to. I've read that we need to remember that they are just objects, without souls or feelings. I tend to feel like I'm tossing out part of myself or the one that gave me that object. Silly, isn't it? Do you keep things for purely sentimental reasons that you no longer need or will ever use?
I'm trying my best to stay away from the news, it's not good for my blood pressure. So I need to keep myself busy, busy, busy. Yesterday, I went to visit my neighbor who is in the hospital with a broken hip. She is 80 or so and was bending to pick up the cap that fell from her milk carton. Her foot slipped and down she went. Her hip was broken in 2 places. Fortunately, someone was there with her at the time. She says she will go to an assisted living residence when she is released from the hospital. I'm so sorry this happened to her, she just lost her husband a couple of years ago and I've noticed that seemed to take a toll on her health.
Back to the books...and I need to do some laundry. I always hold on to the railing as a precaution when going down the steps. A lot of the time I have to take them one at a time because of my ankle or my knee. My next house is going to have a laundry on the main floor!
Happy Tuesday to you! Hope you have sunshine on your shoulders today...ours has darted back behind the clouds again as I've written this.
