There is that moment every year when I look about myself and think “Sweet sister Sadie! Where did all this crap come from?”
Mostly it’s uttered when I’m standing at the threshold of one of The CoDefendants’ rooms, staring into the gaping maw that is the suburban equivalent of the pit of Carkoon, at the abundance of books, papers, stuffed animals and assorted detritus. And especially those *#%?@$ Legos. I loathe Legos. The only thing that assuages this snarling mother beast is the lovely sound they make whilst being sucked into the bowels of my vacuum cleaner. Bwahahahaha!
But not this time.
This time, I’m eyeballing my sewing corner and thinking there might be just a tad too much gar-bahge o’er yonder.
And so, I’m unloading some of it. Hopefully on y’all. ‘Cause I’m generous like that. And, let’s face it, I’m drowning in stuff.
I’m starting on my plethora of books. I’ll never sew up all the patterns in all the books I currently own. It’s disgraceful. And overwhelming.
Y’all know me: no jumping through hoops, no ‘you must follow’. Just leave a comment and tell me you want it. You really, really want it.
Let’s make the deadline for comments Monday the 8th. I’m not one for dilly dallying. I’ll use the very scientific method of having one of the house inhabitants draw a name.
I’ll keep going through the stash, culling treasures. Stay tuned.
