Good morning, my friends. We actually saw some blue sky yesterday afternoon. The rain let up late in the day, and we hoped we were through the worst of it. Then, I heard it raining last night. Still, I think we'll get some relief today, and the forecast is still looking good for our camping trip next week. Wouldn't that be something? As I mentioned to my friend Kate this morning, I don't think we've ever been to Cape Disappointment when it wasn't raining. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, okay? There's still plenty to do at home before we take off.
Our goal for yesterday was to make a run to the recycling depot to unload another five or six boxes of paper. I don't think I'd be exaggerating if I said that makes about 500 lbs. so far. I think we've finished with the worst of the recycling. The rest can just as easily be added to our curbside recycling bin. There's still going to be plenty for donation, however. Neither of us has even started on our closets. I was telling Mike yesterday that the last time I went through my closet, I spared a few things I liked and thought I'd wear again. Approximately ten years on, they're still hanging right in the same spot they were back then. I'm afraid I'll have to be more brutal this time around.
Before we did that, I spent some time on my slow stitching, finishing off the "Dessert for Me!" block.
