Ran out of steam and daylight (the inside of my house is dim - or, as I prefer to put it, filled with mood lighting. And the mood is dim...) so I did not photograph the items, but here are some of the most recent 'volunteers' in the Great Purge:
161- white lace t-shirt. I thought it looked marvelous online. But, on me, it looked...wrong.
162- blue (faded) mandarin collared cotton jacket. This has got to be at least 15 years old! I have held onto it (and worn it) up until last year. Then I caught sight of myself in the mirror and realized it was faded, and worn to a frazzle. It was not an easy purge - I tend to get attached to certain articles of clothing.
163- red (faded) mandarin collared cotton jacket. See #162
164- black knit pants. With tags still attached. I resembled a black sausage when I finally tried them on. At home. And then promptly lost the receipt.
165- glass mixing vessel from a St. Germain liqueur promotion. I kept the St. Germain and dole it out like it's liquid gold. Which it is.
166- ancient ice cream maker
167/168- bicycle tires. I do tend to hang onto things for no good (or understandable) purpose.
169- plastic watering can with a hole in the bottom. And I was saving this for...what?
170- a case of empty baby food jars. I had two and talked myself out of one, because you never know....
I will continue to try and catch up (catsup, ketchup...snort) until I can get back into my weekly seven. I also plan on making a laden trip to Goodwill next Saturday. Good thing I drive an SUV.
I have discovered that I can check out e-books onto my smart phone. While I still prefer an actual, physical book, my local library's very limited hours do not sync with my equally limited free time. It is almost impossible to get there when they are open. I am currently fixated on M.C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series. It's light reading, but the characters are excellent, the plot line delightfully convoluted, I love Scotland and I can tote them around with me.
One of my favorite egg customers is stopping by to pick up eggs tonight and bringing Limoncello. I can see that only the basic chores will be completed tonight...
