Today's Challenge -- Magazines, Books, and old mail. Bless my father. He loved his National Geographic magazine and diligently kept every issue for forty years. Musty and gusty, they nested in a gazillion cardboard boxes. When he moved from one property to another, he always carted those boxes with him. He forgot the silver and family mementos. Yes. Left them behind by mistake, yet, diligently remembered those National G's. When it came time to clear out the garage and the attic I said, "Dad! You don't need to keep these. All the issues are on-line. I can set it up for you no problem." He glared at me and huffed. "Someday, I'll read those magazines." I shook my head. "Dad! They are soggy and there are critters living in them." He laughed. "I can handle it." My father never read those magazines and eventually, when the dementia had him by the throat, I sent all those smelly boxes to the dump. I also had to throw out eight garbage bags filled with junk mail that he hid under his bed that "might have something important in it." Moral of this story: Don't make someone else call the darned dump truck. Clear out those old magazines, books you never read, and junk mail. Heaven knows what has taken up residence in them. Earn 25 gold stars!

Five weeping sisters left through the door One was removed, and then there were four. Four weeping sisters put out to sea One was removed, and then there were three. Three weeping sisters left as the crew One was removed, and then there were two. Two weeping sisters shied from the sun One was removed, and then there was one. One weeping sister, left all alone Jumped from the ship and sank like a stone. No weeping sisters stand by the lake. The evil is gone! Peace in its place!
Silver's Progress -- I've been kicking clutter and changing my habits! I managed to finish that fussy closet, re-pot several plants, change the liners in all the kitchen shelves, wash all the bedding in the house, scour the toilets, clear off two desks, make soap, replace a broken bird feeder, read up on new techniques for gardening in the spring, had some electronics fixed in the home, and finished a quilt top! My youngest daughter posted something on her FB page that I loved, "I vow not to live the same year -- year after year." Every year should be fresh, different, joyful, and filled with beauty. I will endeavor to make every year unique, packed with happiness and learning. I chose to put the "un" back in conventional.
