Been Away

Been away for a few days.  Not really "away" but away from the computer.  I have been trying to un-device myself and spend some time doing other things.  I really love being on the computer but I feel like I need a break sometimes.

I have been making moves to re-do my closet.  I think I am going to have to employ Marie Kondo's approach to tidying up-- holding an item in my hand and if it sparks joy, keep it -- if not, don't.  I have a feeling none of my blouses that need heavy ironing are going to spark any joy for me.  I might have a lot going to the charity shop.

I also spent a little time cleaning up my craft area.  I have a few cards to make and it was to the point, after Christmas, that I couldn't see the table top.  The Hubs has ordered me a new table for crafting and I hope it gets here soon.  I need to do something about storage but I have some ideas.

Still reading THE book -- almost done -- really, I am.  I have been taking a break and reading "Twenty Seven Years on the Texas Frontier" by William Banta.  William Banta is an ancestor of mine -- my great-grandfather's uncle of some number of "greats".  It is an interesting account of his time here and what it was like in the early to mid-1800's.  I love the mention of the areas that I am familiar with as modern sites. 

The weather has turned cold and icky.  It was quite rainy yesterday but it dried up today and we did quite a bit of moving of stuff from our other house.  There is very little stuff left there and we are almost ready to market the house.  It will be the fourth or fifth on the market in the neighborhood.  I don't know if that will be good or not -- it will create more traffic in the area but then there are more to choose from.  Guess we will see what happens.

Not much to speak of -- not much going on.  Girl Scout cookie season has begun and I hope our girls do well.  I think they will.

So, I guess I will go watch this Dallas Cowboy football game -- I really don't like pro football.
