Thanks for all of your comments about decluttering. I'm pretty good about getting rid of things that I don't use, but I do have trouble just throwing them out. Then it takes me forever to get them to a charity. But what really stops me in my tracks is sentimental things. If a family member has given me something, made something for me, or even touched something, I have an urge to keep it. I think Gracie's questions will be helpful to me in the coming weeks as I declutter:
1) If I was moving tomorrow, would I want to take this with me?
2) Have I used this in the last year?
I'll let you know how it goes.
My mom got in today and we're enjoying a nice visit. I knew there would be a little bit of waiting time at the airport, so I tucked a ball of dishcloth cotton and needles into my purse for this dishcloth. I've already made one and I really like to use it, so I'm making another.
We're hoping to visit a couple of museums while my mom's here, make rubber stamped cards for her next Kairos weekend, and play some Scrabble. It's just nice to hang out some, too. Mom brought me a cookbook from her church - the church in which I grew up. Maybe we'll try a couple of new recipes. If I find a winner, I'll share it with you!
