Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
For short times, I am working at removing grass and other weeds from between the stones in the - someday - lovely walking path in back yard. A sharp, pointed hoe edge is working well.
Today de-cluttered bank account as we toured the yard sales in Chateauguay. R bought tools... I wonder at the incredible variety he manages to find and, "don't you already have ten of those?" "Maybe." We did pick up a few useful things, including a very nice new faucet for the bathroom sink ($7!) and two old fashioned stand lamps which will replace the more modern ones in TV room ($5 each!).
Arrived home, out of money and needing food! As R unpacked a woman saw the old clock on the front steps and stopped to see if we were having a yard sale! (Maybe next time! Only permitted on three specified weekends a year.) Such lovely energy she had, we invited her in and had a great visit - mutual friends, exchanged info...
The only clutter is still those things needing to be moved to their home spots. Maybe this week???
Driving around, I saw more than one front yard that was mostly plantings/mulch, stones - my goal for here! A dump truck load of mulch would be a good start!
