I prepared myself for this change in season by cleaning out things. It started as a simple cleaning out the underwear drawer to cleaning out three drawers and the closet. As I accumulated things, I started looking around the house for things that I don't use or don't need. I ended up with a box that was overflowing, six grocery bags, and a small table. It felt pretty good to get rid of things. Luckily the Goodwill folks opened a drop-off branch right down the way from me. It is close and convenient.
Today I got up early to enjoy the coolness of the morning. I dropped Patty off at the groomers and I headed south to Boston Mtn. for the spinning guild meeting. It was a long, long meeting as far as our group meetings go. There was a lot of stuff to discuss, so I got a lot of crocheting on the baby blanket. I am really getting tired of the blanket, but I am persevering to try to get it done sooner than later.
I was able to sell some books at the meeting and that made my savings account happy. I don't know what is going to happen when I run out of friends. I don't want to get stuck with a lot of books.
After picking up Patty, she and I headed up to CJE's house. JE was visiting and I thought I would check in with them. It was a good quick visit, but I didn't want to stay away from home too late.
I made a good supper with a baked potato and some barbequed chicken on top of the baked potato. Easy dinner.
Tomorrow I am going to go to an oral storytelling class that is being held on a vintage train. It should be fun. I have stories to tell, and that isn't the problem. It's how to get them out there.
So now to go to do some meditating and some prayer work for this glorious Solstice. I always think it is the end of summer instead of the beginning. Oh, well. For me a new year starts and new goals and plans to be made.
Have a good rest of the weekend.
