Having to accommodate bandages or casts does cause some wardrobe changes. When I was a kid I broke my leg and had the full-length cast, and some split down the seam jeans legs that went with it. I don't remember (but suspect) my mother doing laundry a lot, but I'm sure I wore just a couple of pairs like that so she wouldn't have to destroy my whole wardrobe.

Paid a bill, listed another eBay item, and will make a brief run to the store. I didn't feel good much of the morning and afternoon, lethargic, achy, probably the weather shifting and allergies getting a purchase on my system. Ugg. I'll work this evening to make up for what I didn't do part of the day when I hoped a nap would help.

The more I want to move stuff out of here, the smaller the items seem to be that I end up listing. Earrings. How much space does that take in the house? But on the card are some pretty copper and silver Native American earrings I bought years ago when I was visiting my Dad's home and never wear. They were made by one of the tribal artists that lives on the reservation where he had his house. (I always stop at that store to buy locally caught and prepared smoked salmon). They were in a basket with some other odds and ends that I ended up tossing or putting where they actually belong. Cleared out the little basket for some other loose jewelry.

Kat, I have some heavy flannel sleep pants that I got a couple of years ago that I love (the kids wear those also, and we all sleep in long t-shirts). Too soon for those yet; I made the bed with a thermal blanket and a wool blanket this week, but the last couple of nights it has been so warm I've folded the blankets over and just used the sheet. Fall in Texas, quite changeable. My A/C came on a couple of times today.
