…and we’re not even done going through closets! Today my sister and I went over to my father-in-law’s house and started bagging up clothes. Though my mother-in-law passed away over three years ago, there were still a lot of her clothes there as well. I never knew a man could have so many clothes!!! All I can say is that if your pant size is 40 x 30 you are SET! Come to our church’s clothing swap in August and help yourself! There were quite a few things that still had the tags on them, too!!!
I did some cleaning as well, and it’s always gratifying when you can see that what you’ve done has made a difference. Clean windows do wonders for a room :) I’m sure the “boys” (that’s what I call my husband and his two brothers :) will notice the difference next time they go over. At some point I guess a decision will need to be made regarding a public sale or whatever, but for now I’ll just keep going down once a week and working.
I enjoy going back home to Lancaster County (although in another couple of years I will have lived in Perry County longer!). I enjoy hearing the Amish buggies roll by. I love to see the teams working in the fields. It’s beautiful country. And this morning I had to go to Zimmerman’s store to buy something and when I opened the door it was like stepping back in time. There is a pleasant smell that is distinctly Zimmerman’s, and it hasn’t changed since I was a kid (and that was a loooong time ago :)
So now it’s time to get a shower and go to bed. I don’t sleep well down there and I’m starting to drag. Hope I sleep better tonight :)
