Summing it Up...
Now, that I'm way on the wrong side of sixty, I feel that being true to self is important. "I yam, what I yam." Kindness and smiles are to be given away. Women are strong. Men are more vulnerable than we believe. Husbands may come and go...but one thing I know for sure is that I will NEVAH live without a corgi or coffee in my life if I can prevent it. Come piles of dog fur or hot water!

Sorting, scrubbing screens and finding shorts!
Well gals, it's that time of year....time to open up the house, let in the birdsong, and shake off the dust that settled over winter.
What is it about a change of season that makes us want to clean, sort, and make room?
It's a real need...it festers....and it HAS to be done!
Yep...the fire has been lit inside ol' Corgidogmama, and the corgi kids are running from room to room, to escape the dreaded Oreck!
Yesterday, I went shopping....in my basement! Ever do that? I rotate clothes and bag them as our little Hollyhock Cottage on the hill only has two dinky closets. Not much room in 720 square feet! A big bag is going to Goodwill, and a big bag is getting washed. I fit in clothes that haven't been worn in five or six years. The much beloved red pantsuit that I wore to my daughter's wedding shower fits again! Okay...these clothes are a tad out of style, but I've never been trendy, so "oh well." Anyway...my choices are plentiful, and I feel rich! Eighteen pounds gone makes me feel positively skinny! Just so I don't look in a mirror....my self image can remain intact! Denial, is a wonderful thing!
Dust is not our friend. Clutter is cruel. Maybe a husband will be swept out in the mix....nah....only kidding.....or am I? Depends which day it is, and if he's cranky!
Okay, too much information...no dirty laundry aired today, he hee!
