There's a trash bag and a half (so far) destined for the thrift shop. There's a pile of jumpers and dresses of possible interest to a sister or two. There have been a few surprising discoveries -- things buried, stuff I'd forgotten about. Also, there's more that fits me than I was expecting -- particularly in terms of summer season clothing. That is good news.
I have kept a small selection of the next-size-down clothing. There's quite a bit more in the next-next- and the next-next-next-size down -- my comfort range, which I'm aiming to reclaim. I started the reclamation project last night.
I drove downtown, as usual, to the coffee shop where we knit out every Tuesday. I'm always early because it's wasteful in every possible way for me to go home and then go back. There are one or two others who regularly show up early, and even if they don't... I often have a sandwich and soup as fortifification for the evening of jovial knitting and socializing. Well, last night I parked the car, locked it up, and walked. I walked a few blocks west to a main intersection, crossed the street, walked many more blocks east to the "end of downtown," crossed the street, and headed west again 'til I ended up back at the coffee shop -- 1.25+ miles total. First at a pretty good clip, then a little slower when I felt the shin splints. I then had a caesar salad w/chicken and a minimal amount of dressing for supper, and cranberry-raspberry fruit smoothie for "dessert." I'll have to find a replacement for the smoothie -- or make it a weekly treat.
There's a bit more to do in the closet, but there was an invitation to lunch -- which I never turn down -- and then I had to photograph these tulips... but I'm heading right back up there!!
