There's nothing quite like the feeling of satisfaction you get from cleaning out a closet. Even if you mostly just tidy and don't purge that much, it still feels like a big accomplishment. We have no plans this weekend...well, at least *I* don't...Anders is still painting the window trims on the house and Karin worked 10-4 today, came home to shower and change, and left again for the evening/night. It's like we're already empty nesters.

Anyway, since I had no plans, I have been taking it pretty easy. The weather has been so changeable: sunny one second, cloudy and raining the next, then starting over. It makes for some very dramatic skies. I slept in, had a leisurely lunch and then spent the day alternating between reading, playing iPad games, and cleaning closets.

I started with our big walk-in and went through piles of stuff, then I went through my hanging clothes, then I went through the frames that are in the closet IN the closet. I filled 5 bags with things to donate to the annual village flea market and 2 bags of things to throw away. Then I cleaned out one of the closets in the computer room (which involved cables...yes, again). I have three things to photograph and write descriptions of that I'm going to try to sell, as well. Next up: front hall closet. My life is exciting, no?

There's nothing else new to report and I'm going to go continue my other two activities from the day. I wish you all a lovely weekend!

Not boring. Just scolding. I have ignored my closet. I continue to do so...there is a big huge "should" in a thought bubble above my head right now. I am jealous that yours is done.

So...what'cha reading?

I redid my syllabus today. I put it into a "newsletter" template to make it more engaging, but it is still a syllabus. At least there are some pictures and a few quotes now. The formatting on those templates are FRUSTRATING. It took me all day.

Your weekend sounds divine!

Re: From Megsie

i don't remember now what I was reading a week ago, sign of impending decreptitude, I suspect. I'm rereading Flight Behavior now for book club.

This constant rain here has got me slowing down, which, given I am already slow, means I will probably end up back in bed with a book and cats for awhile before drifting to the study where I will watch You Tube while crocheting. Retirement is hard work.

which Wallander? Kenneth Branagh or Krister Henriksson? or Rolf Lassgärd? i think Henriksson may be my favorite - but Tom Hiddleston as Martinsson is hard to resist.

Henriksson. Anders is a purist XD
