Day of Organizing

It’s a start. Someday we are going to buy a whole closet organizer, probably from Menards. Right now, these were cheap and easy for me to do. Will need more. 😉

Got rid of one bag, stuff I like but never wear. Yes, I finally got rid of. One thing the stroke has taught me, downsize. I would feel terrible about leaving a mess for hubby and the kids.
I also emptied totes and old albums falling apart into easy to find photo holders. I have a lot of pictures never put into albums. Glad for digital. Less clutter. Color is good. I have clear ones too.

I’m glad I can move enough to finally organize. Still tiring and difficult but a start. Keeps me busy and practice for using the right stroke hand.

Not as full but have more pictures in the basement to bring up and put in this.

Almost full. 🙂 Feels good to get organized. A load off my mind. I think the stroke also helped me to not procrastinate, tired but hopefully in time that will change also. I feel in my 80s right now, I aim to get to my young 50s. 🙂

Dancing

The thing I miss most is going out dancing. Of course moving here we don’t do that anymore. I miss that the most about my hometown. Many dances with friends and coworkers in my 30s when I met hubby. So much fun. He still breaks out into dance moves once in a while. I’ll get there. Of course drinking was involved but hubby didn’t do much of that. I was a slush, lol. He can swing dance to country music too. That was fun. My dad was good with that.

I was also on dance team in high school. I use to make up routines and went to summer camp every summer. The fun.

Took the daughter to a few dances while she was in high school. My designated driver. Small town so they let her in with me. She thought that was fun.

My years are filled with dancing.

Gypsy Magic

About a lady and her son move to Haven Hollow to have a fresh start. She makes potions and is a gypsy. She picked house that is old and needs fixed up. A ghost from their old house hitched a ride. She is a good ghost. Several people are monsters that can be human life and not always mean ole monsters of her new friends. Several mishaps but come out ok. In the back of her house is a cemetery. I cant wait til i read the next one. Good story. I think my daughter should read. She likes potions and ghostly things, maybe not monsters.

“Rainbow Moonstone is useful for treating eye infections or blurred vision. It also regulates metabolism and relieves stress.

It balances hormones and treats the symptoms of PMS and menstrual cramps in women. It is also good for treating rheumatism and gout. “According to Crystals and Jewelry

To me it doesn’t look like rainbow but is a pretty rock. I like the polished looking rocks that are for jewelry. Please fix my blurred vision!
