hey, all living the simple life ... (or, in my case, trying not quite nearly my hardest) ....
two updates! yesterday i bought a couch! i don't have a picture of it yet ... but promise to post soon. it was a grand, $70 purchase from goodwill. in excellent shape, with non-obnoxious floral pattern (i despise those country styles) and tiny arms (i hate big rounded ones, they are tough on the neck and tough to fit through doorways). It will go upstairs in my room at the end of next week. Then I need to make plans to start putting the downstairs reading/yoga room together. i am so excited to have additional space! so far i've also earmarked the top shelf in the living room coat closet and extra shelf space in the bathroom for food stockpiling.
my basil plant is sprouting like crazy with hardly any attention from me ... the rosemary plant is going a bit slower, but it already has plenty of leaves that i can use. again, i promise ... pictures soon!
oh, yes ... ! the other thing: i bought a used "new" computer from Dell the other day ... it was under $400. i really needed something reliable for school, so i can't complain. george bush's economic stimulus check should cover that ... if i ever get it!
yesterday i did spend a couple of hours sorting through many piles of old clothing. i filled two bags and one box for goodwill!! yes!! i knew i could be ruthless! i still have too many clothes, in my opinion ... but i think once i go through some shoes and paperwork and other odds and ends, i'll have the space i'm needing so badly.
today i'm looking forward to a swim at an indoor pool and relaxing live music tonight.
peace and love to all of you ~~~~ karen
