Rainy Day(s) Advantage
I haven't posted lately. Why? I walked into my bedroom closet. Once I went in, there was no coming out until it was cleaned up, swept and organized. I filled two boxes to donate, and filled one garbage bag. I just never had time to get back in there. Hubby joked, "should I just back the truck up?"
Now that another kiddo is graduating soon (with honors, said in a proud Mommy voice), I'll have less needs for art supplies. The kids can come home from school, and ask for the strangest items, so I have kept an odd assortment of supplies.
The only person privy to the before photos was my mother. She understands. Once it was completely done, I heard Hubby from the kitchen, "Hey, there's a floor in this closet!" and "Someone stole half the bedroom!" He just thinks he's funny, but he has some cleaning to do too.
Gardening can do that to you - abandon the indoor chores.
More rain is coming, so more is getting cleaned and organized (once again).
Meanwhile, I'll patiently wait for a dry slot in the day(s) ahead, to plant the last 77 tomato plants, several Hungarian wax peppers, and some Serrano pepper plants.
