Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Several years ago I attended an Open House for a new city-run printing center that my university was participating in (sending work over). I rarely used them, but because I attended the open house I ended up being one of two people in the drawing for a small Canon camera. Great odds, and I was the recipient some time later of said small camera. Though it isn't great for regular photographs, I've been able to pull stills from videos shot with it. It's my spare in my pack and I make a point of charging it every so often to keep it viable. Who knows when it might be useful? Last time I lent it out, my ex shot the best photos of our daughter's MA graduation ceremony, when my big camera was no good because I lost track of her in the line of people walking through the procession.
Keeping photos of household possessions is a good idea for insurance; I have those kind of photos in a private cloud account for obvious reasons, and this reminds me that I haven't updated for a while.
It was hot, low-90s today, I nearly lost some of my small-pot seedlings. They need to go into the ground tomorrow. We had a rain overnight that I thought was more substantial than it turns out to have been. Tomorrow is also the day to set up my sprinkler pattern to broadcast over three specific zones. Once again I'm trying out a new sprinkler. It's never perfect, but it gets better each year.
eBay needs attention since a number of items sold in the last two weeks. The declutter process will advance with this weekend's listings.
