So much to think about...
So much to do...
I've started by going through books. I can shave a lot of the fiction out. If I've read it and it isn't something I think about reading again, it's out. But the reference books, decorating and gardening, seem to tag along with me wherever I go.
I look around and tell myself I need to start...something. But where to put things? Stack them up? The dogs get upset whenever they see me do something that does not appear normal. Like taking books out of bookshelves and stacking them on tables.
So I guess I will give myself this weekend to think. Adjust my thinking. Adjust to the reality of it all. And then hopefully come up with a game plan.
There's still a bit of snow on the ground, not much. I went outside a while ago and tried to pry one of the bird houses off the garage. And then thought: What if the birds already have built nests in there? I can't see in because they're up high. But I've seen birds coming in and out. So do I take the birds, nest, house and all?
Well, I have some time. I'll figure it out.
Your brain just sort of turns to mush when all these things have to be taken care of in some fashion, but there are so many things to be done that you're not sure what to tackle first.
Maybe my brain will have shifted gears and I'll be in "get things done" mode. I can "skin a house" really fast, or I use to be able to. This time around, I am moving a bit slower and will have to take lots of breaks off my feet.
But it will get done. One way or another. And I thank you all for your wonderful well wishes. It meant a lot to me.
