Lots and Lots of Rain
Thursday April 28, 2011
I think a lot of people can relate to this sight right now. :rainy: That huge band of damaging storms that swept the US has finally passed us today. I kept having to rush upstairs and unplug my desktop PC. Working off my netbook for a while as the storms passed one by one. But the weekend should be really nice now. I’ve mostly kept inside this week except for work so I’m anxious to get out.
One thing I won’t be doing this weekend is buying any more clothes! I feel I have mostly everything I’ll need for the rest of spring and even summer.
When Mike got home today we went through our closets before dinner. We did an overhaul, BOTH OF US! I finally got him to donate the stuff he no longer ever wears. We came up with 6 bags of donation clothes! He had a shirt in there from 10 years ago This really was a shock he joined me with the overhaul, see!!
Three bags each! Plus I have a small box of “exceptionally lovely” clothes I’m sending to my sister. Then a few things I think I’ll sell here. The COLU/BUZZ SPUNKY overalls & W♥C leopard skirt & a W♥C-like cream colored skirt. I’ll try to work on getting those up soon. This is my final overhaul. I have nothing left except what I’m currently wearing and a few dead heat summer items from last year I’ll wear again this year.
I knew I’d have to do one final overhaul for summer clothes but I didn’t think I could do it so soon. But looking through everything I have now, and still like from last summer, I realized I had more than enough to dress properly throughout the hottest months already!
I’m not delusional in thinking I’ll never have to do another overhaul again. I mean… clothing gets old, needs replacing, etc. I have a cardigan I should toss because it’s looking worn but I just love it too much. You know, those things will always happen. But I swear I don’t want to do these triple bag worth overhauls every few months anymore. It’s too wasteful. I really want to stick to my quality over quantity mentality I’ve had through most of winter. I was good at sticking with it and it made me really happy. It made getting dresses easy as fuck too, LOL. Ah ok, so that’s that. Gonna take it to donation bins tomorrow! I’d like to only have to do this twice a year in the future and only fill 1 bag then.
I’ll end it with some eyecandy from a Korean bakery called Shilla. I’ve been there a bunch of times before & mentioned them here. Anyway they have amazing cake slices, cookies, etc. sweets and cafe food! I bought 3 cake slices on my birthday (few weeks ago) but forgot to post them The cheesecake was AMAZING. Tasted so much like my grandmother’s homemade NY Style cheesecake!
