This morning when I looked at what I had scheduled today, I only had this blog. That’s a change. Usually the block is full. This doesn’t mean I have nothing to do, because I have plenty. I need to write, I need to work on an author’s manuscript, and I need to clean my house. The one thing I need to do more is empty out a bedroom.
This is the story. When my mother passed away she willed our daughter a whole bedroom suite. Each of the two granddaughters received a bedroom suite. My daughter had no room for hers, so we kept it and moved it to Kentucky. Now her daughter is graduating from college with a degree in music education, but is taking a year off before her masters. She has convinced her mom, my daughter, to trade her bedroom suite to us for the one we have here. I didn’t do much cleaning out of drawers when my mom passed away, so I have years to go through and throw away.
If anyone needs a rain bonnet I have several, like twenty. I think my mom took one from every store in town, probably two or three. There are several from banks. If we have another flood, I’m prepared to get out with my rain bonnets on, each and every one of them. They were free, so why not take one. That was my mom, raised in the depression and conscious of each penny.
I’m thankful for this day that I can get a little more done. We’re swapping out next Friday, so I have my work cut out for me. It’s fun reliving the memories of the past, but I’m ready to get on with the future and write more in my book that I need to finish the last of May. Nothing Shady Ever Happens In Shady Valley will release in October, 2018. I love writing this book and I need to be half-way finished in the next two weeks.
So, now that this is written, I’m heading with trash bags to the bedroom to go through more drawers. After we swap bedroom suites, I’ll try to find a place to put what I’ve kept. Have a blessed weekend.
