To feel okay about going reading, I decided to cross a few things off my To-Do list. I finally put the photos I had scanned back in the Mama's albums. Some of them even went back on the correct pages. Hopefully, the Mama won't notice. I filed away some documents and put papers to shred in a neat pile on the floor.
I even researched what kind of milkweed grows in our area and where to purchase the milkweed seeds. Milkweed is what monarch butterflies munch on as they pass through from here to there. When I was a kid, monarch butterflies were a common thing to see around here. Not anymore. Over the decades, their food source has been wiped out every where through development, which, of course, has contributed to their decreasing population.
Belt HolderLast week, the Husband and I did a thorough cleaning in our bedroom on account of the carpet beetles that suddenly showed themselves. Damn, bugs. On one hand, it was good thing because it forced the Husband and me to take out everything in our drawers and closet. "Oh, I didn't know I had that," said the Husband more than a few times. We got rid of a bunch of clothes and reorganized things. And, you know what, we only had a few things that had no place to be.
The Husband's belts, for instance. Yesterday, I got tired of seeing them sprawled on the dresser, so I put on my thinking cap. Essentially, I found a bunch of curtain clips in a drawer and. . . Voila!
As you can see, Jane Austen had to get in on the action, too.
