"Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?"

Not much going on today. Other than a heavy rain and windstorm that knocked out our power this morning before work. Luckily I had showered and dried my hair before it went out, so I threw my curling iron in my purse and took care of that at work.

Came home and sold the roof rack. This selling stuff to declutter is pretty cool.

Gearing up for midterm exams tomorrow and Wednesday, an event that makes me happy as I get to sit at my desk and alternate knitting with tidying up the paper piles while the students work their little hearts out.

Speaking of hearts, I love this one, don't you?


  1. Decluttering feels so good. I don't know why I don't do more of it!

  2. Thanks for posting a link to my button heart tutorial, I'm glad you like it.

  3. The button heart is clever. I'm a beginner at collecting buttons, but now I find myself looking at ugly vintage clothing with an eye toward the buttons. Nothing is safe at those second hand stores!

    I sold a lot of mismatched gold last month. The act of going through my jewelry box for singleton earrings and broken chains was liberating. I also made quite a bit of much that I went through the rest of my stuff that I seldom use and sold a bit of that, too. All told, I probably got enough to buy appliances for the new house.

  4. We had a crazy wind and rain day here, too. Based on the ground under my big blue spruce, I'd say it blew off about 60% of its needles.

  5. love all the organizing and decluttering you did - and you made money to boot! thanks so much for stopping by my blog. you have a very nice space here. I have to ask where you live - i'm in gloucester.

  6. Thanks for the heart link. And, good news on the sales front. Off to a good start...more yarn in the future?
