Charmion De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 (1125* d) RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019 19 May 19


Hurrah, the garage is clean and tidy. On the other hand, I have seven large bags of garbage, a substantial stack of flattened cardboard boxes, and a miscellany of dead household items ó four Venetian blinds, a broken patio umbrella, a suitcase with a busted zipper, and one of those plastic sheet things meant to protect a hardwood floor from the wheels of an office chair, which (the plastic thing) is irretrievably warped. So Tuesday will feature a trip to the dump.

Everyone should visit the local dump at least once a year. A feature of the Stratford dump that I particularly enjoy is the colony of vultures that haunts the area. Very interesting creatures, vultures.

I will return to the dump on Saturday, when the city is hosting Household Hazardous Waste Day. Thatís my cue to lighten our load of dead batteries, paint cans, fluorescent light bulbs, and anything else that looks dangerous, such as empty camping fuel cans.

LilyFestre says she likes reading about what some people are doing in retirement, and I realized that we are supposed to be retired but weíre not, really. Himself has just accepted a new job and enrolled in a doctoral program. I donít have a paying gig at present, but I seem to be working as hard as I ever did, if not as much.
