I've been on a purging streak the last couple of weeks – the pantry, the spice cabinet, the stairway bookshelves and the living room bookshelves. It's been very cleansing. Kitchen stuff and duplicate spices given away, a carton of books to go to the used bookstore and a large bag to go to the friends of the library. Left in the house to tackle the bedroom bookshelf and the huge pile of books on the floor in front of it and my closet. I've lost almost 30 pounds so I know there's stuff that will no longer fit YEAH.
Then comes the big tackle outside. The great wall of Mill Creek is covered in wild blackberries yummy to eat but not pleasing on my gardener eye. In fact the entire area around the house is full of blackberries. That's what comes of living in the forest. Any time you rest the blackberries invade. Little does Larry know that he's going to weed eat the hill so I can Round Up the lovely berries.
I'm able to do all this because I've spent the last four years on Dr. Sanity's couch reclaiming my life after the nasty depression. Yes for talk therapy and psych drugs.
