SIFTING THROUGH 50+ YEARS

Up early this morning,hubbie took today off so we along with bro & sis in law could work getting in-laws old house cleaned out. We started about 10:00 and except for about an hour lunch break and dump run we buried our heads and went through everything in the house and attic,(cough,cough) some of the attic stuff hadn't been touched by anything but dust in many years. We hauled 1 large truck load of trash to the dump and have at least 1 more load to go plus a large load to go to Goodwill. We brought home a truck load,#1 son who helped us all day brought home a truck load,niece came by and claimed her suv load,daughter claimed her suv load and #2 son stopped by on his mail route and choose a couple things he wanted ,bro & sis in law took a truck load to their house. It is amazing how much stuff you can accumulate in 50 some years. We divided some antique furniture that was there and will go back to get it later. Hopefully the pile of donations on the front porch won't cause a break in over night.
We got home around 6:00 tonight,unloaded #1 son's truck and put ours in the carport and covered it with a tarp,what in the world I'll do with all that stuff I don't have a clue!
After evening chores we ate a light supper then hubbie ran to the grocery store for a gallon of milk and a couple other things I needed to bake a cake order for tomorrow. It is suppose to snow in the morning but I'll have to fix these cakes for this order just in case. Today has been on the dreary side,causing concern for what we had sitting outside a few times because it looked like it could rain any minute but never did.It got definitely colder this evening and has that snow feel in the air. Oh well it's been over a week without any flakes flying so I guess it's time again!!! I have an accomplished feeling tonight for all the work we got done today,I hope it doesn't snow out my meeting with the lawyer in the morning as we do need to make some decisions about the old house.One of my favorite places to visit when I'm out and need a peaceful place to regroup!
God puts beauty in our paths everyday,too bad a lot of time we miss out on it. Open hearts and minds are a blessing only we can control. When you open your heart to God the world takes on a beauty their is no comparison to. Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, I know you are exhausted --but you do sound better today than you did yesterday. Hope that old snow stays AWAY from you.

What is that gorgeous place in the picture???? WOW!!! I can understand why it would be a place to get-away and regroup... WOW!!!!!

Get some rest, my friend.

I am praying that all goes well at your meeting with the lawyer today. The sooner he can help you tie up all the loose ends, the better you all will feel. Perhaps then, you can take a bit of a break and get some well deserved rest and begin the healing process. God bless.
