A Rainy Day

Am still in Connecticut, a dark rainy day...

A good day to help my Dad sort things that have been
saved for many years in the basement, much of it is
mundane, light bulbs, hardware, office supplies etc.
but every now and then some treasure from childhood.
It's a slow process for we pause to reminisce often
and end up just putting most things in different containers
and actually discard very little for you never know when
you might need something. The two of us are savers!
He even found some beach rocks
from a very long time ago. At least we are trying
to organize it but have a long ways to go.

Do you have a difficult time throwing things out?

Yes, indeed, but there comes a time...!
I do find it hard to throw out things with memories attached to them.

It looks like you made what could have been a chore, into making more memories instead.

I used to have a real problem throwing out anything, but then I had five children and i had to learn to edit. I've found a way now to make things alot eaiser. I take photos of some art, items, whathave you, then i still have the essence of it, but it takes up alot less room. Still, i have a lot of Stuff! good luck!

Judy and Lori ann,
thanks so much for writing and your encouragement and Dad is in the basement now... he brings up boxes to sort and then we will bring it back down and find a space for it. He keeps finding things that I think I might be able to use. Before I left Maine my husband said, "don't come back with more stuff!" Oh well!
