(My friend Sarah gave me a bunch of Swiss Chard today--isn't it gorgeous?)
I am making progress. Teeny tiny progress.
What keeps me going? Your comments help, especially comments in which you share that your children are grown and you still have Lego in your attic.
Does the Lego-less attic even exist? I don't think so.
Today I had three small projects: Put all the party stuff in one box, all the arts and crafts supplies into one bin, and make a neat pile of the Legos boxes. Actually, my plan had been to chuck the Legos boxes into the recycling, but then I realized that they weren't empty.
I thought about pretending they were and sort of kind of accidentally throwing them away.
(By the way, I'm sorry that I had to cut the bat footage from the video. He's a really cute bat.)
Below: a picture of the pie Jack made last week. He hasn't made this week's pie yet, though he has made the crust (his first!), which is chilling in the fridge. This week it's double apple pie. I can't wait until we get to strawberry lemon pie. I love strawberry-anything and lemon-anything.
Tomorrow I may take a break from the attic, but on Friday I'm going to attack the corner with all the comforters that need to be washed and the old curtains that long for windows but are far too old and faded to hang up in public, and a bunch of other stuff that's really hard to fold neatly and I don't have any place to put.
But right now I'm going to plant some mint in a pot. Doesn't that sound nice?
