Everyone is talking of purging. Heaven knows I have plenty I could purge, but find it so hard to part with things . . . even if I haven't used/worn/seen it in many years. My dear mom bordered on hoarder. It took me decades to realize it was because she was a product of the depression and had nothing as a child. I do okay with my main living areas, but my walk up attic and basement are another story. In all the years I've lived here (17), my basement has never been this bad. I am not one to say, "Today, I will clean the basement." I'm more like, "I will work for 20-30 minutes each day cleaning the basement until I am done (or get tired of it and move on to something else)." I already have a huge pile ready to be donated (I am parting with some things). At least there is some progress.
I got this today at Walmart for only $8.98. It's 14 1/2" D x 12 5/8" W x 25 5/8" H. I think it will be great to tuck in the hooking room closet (once I clean it to make room for it . . . lol). Maybe I can get my cross stitch, punch needle, and/or wool applique stuff organized ~ or is that just wishful thinking?
Well, a Medigap and Part D prescription plan have been chosen. It is a relief to have it done and I just hope I made wise choices. Since I retired with a government pension (city), I had to go through this brokerage place. I had done my research so knew what I wanted before I called to enroll. Well, the licensed benefit person tried her best to steer me to a plan that was almost $500 a year more. The benefits were a little better, but not $500 better!
I've been hooking but haven't made as much progress this week on my rug as I thought I would. It is going rather quickly since I am hooking it in an 8.5 and 9 cut ~ my favorites. I started on the other half of the rug though I am not quite finished with the first half.
Two weeks from today hooker friend Melissa and I will be heading to Sauder Village to meet up with Bobbie for a relaxing 2 days of hooking. It is always such a fun time.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
