We have been given a forecast of a beautiful, sunny day and weekend ahead.  It will be so nice to be able to sit on the porch, ride in the car with the windows down, and see all the flowers blooming!  Next week - 80's and more of that sunshine.  Welcome spring/summer.

Jim and I are purging closets, moving things around or I think it is called 'spring cleaning'.  It is so funny, we do one little thing, and have to sit down.  We sit down and laugh at each least we can still laugh.  

We did accomplish a lot yesterday though.  I thought women were supposed to have more clothes than men......uh huh, not here.  I had really never paid that much attention to how many clothes he had, other than keep them clean and ready.  He filled 3 large garbage bags with shirts and pants. He still has 2 closets to go!  In all fairness, Jim has lost 65 pounds and really couldn't wear those clothes again, and someone else should get good use out of them.

We have no definite plans for the weekend.  Go out and enjoy, if your weather is good. Get your R & R.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catchers mitt on both hands.  You need to be able to throw something back.

  1. Good morning, Linda! I love your page background and banner! So cute! Walt also has way more clothes than I do! How in the world does that even happen? LOL. Doesn't it feel great to clean out the closets? We have been doing the same thing. Enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. We are suppose to have sunny skies this weekend too...I love Spring!

  2. I have Spring cleaning of my closet on my "to-do list" too:) Enjoy your day dear friend! Hope it is a "giggling" kind of day! HUGS!

  3. We Spring Cleaned last Fall (I'm always so out of synch with the world ... lol). I think I've ridden my closet, and the attic, of all unwanted garments to-date.
    Our weather has been spectacular: cool breezes, bright sunshine, lovely flower smells, etc. Shear heaven!
    Hope your day stays lovely and fun. Luv ~:)

  4. Cleaning out always feels good. I like your header. I love Carr's documentary.

  5. Our closets were cleaned out before our move last year. I just took a few bags of things to Goodwill again. My hubby and I don't have many closet for both of us does it!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  6. Good Evening, We are enjoying the windows being open today. A nice breeze to enjoy while cleaning. Like you, I have a bag of clothes to donate that someone can enjoy. It won't be long before the weather is too hot to do such projects. We work a while and sit a while, just like you two! lol Thinking of you and yours...may God bless.

  7. Cute background and header! Bet you feel good about all you got done. :)
    I am working this weekend. It's supposed to be beautiful here.

  8. It sounds like you're getting a lot of organizing done. Good for you! I hope you have a very enjoyable weekend.
