On A Roll

I guess writing Thursday’s post revved me up and got me going.  I said that I felt like a slug even though I could defend my case that I was Not being a slug.  I must have kept that thought in mind because my momentum continued.

I cleared more debris from the car.  Two big boxes of stuff transferred to the basement, currently sitting on the washer.  Of course, now I have the problem of having to move them if I want to do laundry!  In a way that’s a good thing…I Have to do something with them soon, can’t just through a sheet over them and forget about them! 😉

I consolidated 3 boxes of photos into one.  That’s a good thing, too, because if I need to find something, I only have one place to look now.  In doing that I found some photos of an old friend, Bob, from high school and college who passed away. The photos are from a long ago Halloween party. The spooky thing is that Thursday was the anniversary of his passing.  34 years…yes, spooky…

That’s Bob on the left and another friend, Marlon on the right.

I also did a good job, if I do say so myself, of going through paperwork in my desk area.  I truly believe it multiplies when I’m not here and it’s all the kind of thing that needs to be shredded!   My poor old shredder certainly got a workout, but it’s finished…until more comes in the mail!!!

Why is it that this sort of activity hits me in spurts?  If I could convince myself to do this every day, I’d be well on my way to having things in order.

I’ve even putting aside doing much reading this week in favor of sorting and packing.  I’m reading The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon.

The Angel's Game (The Cemetery of Forgotten Books, #2)

I’ve been wanting to read this since May when I read his book The Shadow of the Wind.  I really like how he writes and I’m enjoying it.  I finally broke down and got it from the library since I couldn’t find it at a thrift store or library book sale.  I guess I really must be serious about this cleaning out thing if I’m neglecting this book.  Good reason to get on the exercise bike…I can READ!!

This was one of those nights that I couldn’t sleep.  I’ve been awake since 1:45am.  I didn’t get up until about 3:45am but I’m sure to need a nap later.  Too bad…that’ll cut into my sorting and packing time as well as my reading time.  No matter, I’ll work it out somehow! 🙂

Happy Friday!!!
