#WeekendCoffeeShare Editing Possessions

If we were having coffee this weekend I would invite you to sit back and overlook the chaos going on in the house. I am in the middle of moving my furniture for a more practical and useful arrangement. I am also still editing all kinds of items for give away. I have a small haul to take to Goodwill tomorrow. I have been lucky in that some of my friends have desired some of the things I no longer cared to keep. This happy situation was enhanced by our city brush and bulky pick-up of larger items curbside. I made good use of it. We could already achieve the goal of parking both of our cars in the garage now if we had to do it. Since there is still much shifting, moving and arranging to do, it is easier with just one car in there.

Some shelves and storage units that had fallen into uses that did not really suit their original design are being moved to places in the house that make much more sense. When I complete the overhaul and elimination I think our space will be much more enjoyable. I know I will be able to find things more easily when I need them. I already can.  My office is one of the spots in need of a tidy and clearing.  I always feel good and am more productive when my office is clean and free of clutter.  I am hoping the muse will move in and inspire like crazy once the office is spic and span.  She has been okay lately, but nothing to write home about..I have done a little fiction and some poetry.  I did not post every day last week, but such is life.  I am leaning more toward poetry this year, and I like the trend.  I used to be so factual all the time.

Every week has a different feeling and rhythm.  I am settling into my job and my new car. It is still perfect weather for my friend and I to work out in my condo pool 3 times a week from 5-7 am.  Soon the water will cool down and in September we will have to move to the jacuzzi.  This is my favorite time of year.  The summer is fading, but it is still raining a little.  The plants are green, and some of the washes are still running.  All in all, this has been a healthy rainy season. We had no big destructive storms, but received a good amount of rain in a steady manner.

I am listening to a course on Audible on the history of human gastronomic evolution.  It is fascinating.  I am learning so many new ways to look at cultures by understanding how food defines civilizations and times in history.  We are still constantly evolving, although some might say our food is devolving in America today. I am also listening to Penny Marshall’s autobiography read in her own voice.  It is a great story, but the voice of LaVerne telling about youth in the Bronx is also a real treat.  It is called My Mother Was Nuts.  I highly recommend it even though I have not finished it.

It looks like our hostess Diana has taken a weekend break.  She has a new full time teaching job and must need to organize herself.  I am sending this on Monday morning, so all the rules have been set aside for the week.  Thanks for sharing coffee and your news.  Please catch up with the rest of the gang on twitter under #weekendcoffeeshare.

I find your editing process inspiring. I have pulled a good sized bag of clothes, jewelry and shoes to donate. I have to go through some boxes in the garage too because If I haven’t worn them, it’s unlikely I will do so now.
Re: office…. my office needs serious clean-up too.
