A good day


Today is the first of 11 3-day weekends for the summer. I attacked my long-time running list of Things To Do - and had a peaceful day organizing and relaxing!

  1. Air in tires and tires rotated at Big O Tires (finally! was on the list for a few months)
  2. Clean my car windows inside to remove the blurry film of gunk that accumulates over time (finally! was on the list for a few weeks)
  3. Remove the torn car seat cover from the passenger side seat (I had already removed the driver's side seat cover years ago) (finally! been meaning to remove it for months)
  4. Remove every piece of clothing from my closet that doesn't fit, that has a stain, that is so outdated that I wouldn't wear it even if I could fit into it
  5. Sort through all of the extra hangers I've accumulated over the years; determine which type and color of hangers to keep; in my closet, replace hangers in colors I don't like with colors I do like; group similar types and colors of hangers together and put in a box for donation
  6. Remove a bunch of buttons from my jewelry box (new clothes sometimes come with extra buttons and they end up in my jewelry box)
  7. Organize my sewing box while putting the buttons away and looking for a particular button
  8. Sew that button on a blouse so I can wear it again
  9. Watch a sappy movie while cuddling with Cleo and cry at the end
  10. Finally get around to putting clothes to be donated in bags - 8 plastic food-shopping bags!
  11. Go to local donation place with clothes and extra hangers, discover they had already closed, come back home, and put the to-be-donated stuff in my craft room for my next weekday day off next Friday

And, now, Round Table pizza for dinner while watching the NASCAR truck race! Go Kyle Busch!


Um, watch season finale of LOST ... ?

I am terribly late but had to express how pleased I am that others pay such attention to clothes hangers. It's good to have company.

Hi, Melissa! Blue is just a color that doesn't make me feel good. So, out went the blue hangers! Now, when I look in the closet, I see only colors I like - and clothes that I actually wear.
