Trucking on

With the start of daylight saving, it is beginning to feel like summer is just around the corner. Time to do some spring cleaning and de-cluttering. We have so much stuff, and it would be nice to find ways to better appreciate (or get rid of) it.

Of course it’s also the time of year for evening walks, visits to the night markets and street food for dinner.

  1. I’m old enough now that I can start to pass things on to great-nephews and great-nieces so I can decipher but not feel like I’m just tossing stuff.
    Every morning I wake to daylight in the early morning, I cry a little about the return of darkness when the clocks go forward tomorrow even if it does mean more daylight at the end of the day.

  2. I have read the book and have done some decluttering but still have quite a distance to go. Books are the most difficult. They seem to cling to my hands when I try to get rid of them. As for daylight savings time, I can never remember when we’re saving and when we’re not.

  3. I am not a pack rat by any stretch of the imagination. Gilles and I are both pretty brutal about purging stuff … and yet it still has a miraculous way of accumulating.
    We’ve recently started discussions about selling our home and moving after being here for over 25 years. Already I’m going into keep-purge mode in prep for hopefully packing in the near future. It is oddly freeing ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I have definitely started to acquire more stuff lately. Mostly old stuff that my parents are giving me, and antique-y things I just like having around.
      We have been talking about selling forever and periodically purge our stuff in preparation. But somehow the move doesnโ€™t happen. I guess the universe is telling us we arenโ€™t quite ready.
      Good luck with your big change. Do you plan to relocate, or just to a different house in the same area?
