Must be Strong Now

Woo Hoo!  I was able to give blood to the Red Cross today!
There is a new system for measuring the contents, so my iron was 12.6.  Even at a 12.5 I would be able—both fall within the old number of 38.
It was at the new Hampton Inn, so I walked across the parking lot to Hobby Lobby, just to see if anything nice might be on Clearance.  I did see some good stuff, but for the first time in quite awhile, I left that store empty-handed.

Onward to the church building, where I hoped to find a big table and be able to set out all my granny squares and arrange them all pretty.  Alas, not to be—the carpets were being cleaned.

I had to return a book to the public library, so I decided to use a table there.  The librarian approved, even helped to trade around a couple colors.  Now, all I have to do is stitch the dang thing together.

At home, I had lunch of leftover sloppie joe sandwich, and decided to take a nap.  Oscar hopped up beside me, and next thing I know, it’s 4:30 in the afternoon.
Well, the nurse said I should take it easy the rest of today.

The shredder machine is calling though.
Another 2 boxes of papers wait.

It was mentioned about storage space around here.  Well, we have closets—1 in each of 3 bedrooms, 2 in the hall, 1 in the bathroom, a double wide here in the study (formerly the dining room).  Then there is a big cabinet here under a buffet countertop, many shelf units assembled years ago, and some husband-made-built-to-the-wall bookcases. (I’m not going to take the time to count).  Plus 2 storerooms in the basement, and an attic.

There is plenty of space where stuff collects.  And after 24 years since we moved in, bunches of stuff did accumulate!  It’s gonna take me a month to get over my sentimental attitude to toss it out or arrange it.
Also, there is a suggestion to paint the walls a new color.
That’s another story.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Who says you can’t get healthier with age! You certainly prove that.

    You are doing what I should do. So much stuff in boxes from dishes to craft materials. Clothes that are about two sizes too small. Receipts from years back and instruction and warranty books on things we haven’t owned in 10 years. Maybe some day I’ll get brave and just start pitching!

    It ain’t easy, but quite worth it.
    Husband is impressed with what’s happened so far 😉
