I am NOT really a pack-rat, but I do have some areas in my house that need overhauling. Mostly my office, which I can never seem to keep up with. I think that’s a problem with many writers or creative people.
So, today I decided to clean out a basket that I keep under my coffee table. Here are some of the things I found:
Magazines and Christmas cards from 2008
Two hurricane guides from the newspaper
A set of earphones
An overused emery board
A pink eraser
Assorted paper clips
A special brush for getting dog hair off the furniture
One find that sums up this experience is a line from an anniversary card from my mother-in-law. She wrote:
“…the time has flown by.”
Yes, it has!
PS _ I have the doors and windows open today and it’s lovely!!
