I organized another large batch of donations. A neighbor stopped by and announced several of the pretty framed mirrors would look perfect in her house, so she left with as they would say on the old game shows " lovely parting gifts". She will take my living room lamps at a later date. The charity pick up arrived on Tuesday. A week before I had it on my calendar. My mistake not theirs. I was home so I was able to get all the stuff out to the driver. Including some additional holiday stuff in the garage. The scary part was since I wasn't expecting him, the only thing on the porch where I'd said pick up would be located was the delivery of my new days on vacuum. But it all worked out.
I loaded more of the things from our semi finished storage room in the basement into clear boxes for long term storage at the lake place. While reaching for a box in the back of a higher shelve I managed to drop a dehydrated mouse on my head. Guess it could have been worse, he could have been alive.
And I between there has been knitting. I finished a hat for Pine Ridge reservation and a baby sweater for Bundles of Love.
This weekend, back at the lake. A friend is coming for the weekend. So there will be no painting or packing. There will be reading and knitting. There might even be a movie.
