Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Sorting More Small Stuff

I've been doing more sorting.

Below are some of the few things I will take with me.


I wrote about my Amish figures here but know I can't take them with me - no room.
I've selected this pair to keep.  Daughters may each take a pair.


I have had a collection of rocks in a printers tray.  I got the idea to dump the shells our of this ginger jar lamp and add my rocks.  That worked but it's also very heavy!


We are selling the stuff we can't take through an online auction site called MaxSold.com


I am gathering like objects together to be lots.





This hutch hopefully will find a home with one of the daughters, if not it will sell on the auction.


I have two boxes going, one for each daughter of books I want them to have.


Of course they have the final say if they want to take them home.


So I continue to sweat the small stuff as our tenure as stewards of this house and land comes to an end.

You seem to be doing well with the clearling out.

You have such a great plan and are so organized, Marcia! It's so good to have a deadline to keep you working on the small things. Although this is a challenging time... keep thinking about how wonderful and carefree your next 'chapter' will be! ♥ I remember when you bought your red hutch. I hope it will find a special place with one of your daughters, so you can still enjoy it! I'm carefully watching and learning from you as you work through the coming weeks. I'm very grateful that you are sharing your journey with us! Keep going. It will all be worth it!! ♡Dawn@Petals.Paper.SimpleThymes

Sigh... We went through this 8 years ago. It's painful. Aha! You collect rocks too. Art tries to get a small unique rock from whatever new place we go to and then he labels them.
