I don’t want the chicken……

I love this post Margie at Fueled by Chocolate.  All of us at one time or another will be or have been faced with the challenge of downsizing.  Some of us know we will have to help others face this daunting task.  Margie talks about doing just this.  I hope you enjoy and gain some tips.  See you tomorrow.  Pamela

I’m helping my Dad downsize. He will probably be moving to smaller living quarters in the not too distant future. The ‘weeding’ process isn’t easy for him.

I am from Oklahoma. Now living the dream in Arizona. I'm a sassy, creative and outspoken southern gal. I believe that if you can read you can go anywhere. One of my favorite sayings is "If you knew you could not fail what would you do?" I enjoy helping other people. My friends know that I’m the queen of useless trivial knowledge and I will not hesitate to use it.

  1. The things we keep vs the things we let go are very curious, aren’t they. I did a massive purge last summer as we were planning a move, and I came across a teeny, tiny pairs of everyday mittens one of my children had used. They weren’t homemade, there was nothing special about them, and if they’d been put in the same place as all the other mittens many moons ago, they’d have gone to the community store. But, here they were some 13-14 years later in a different spot. I looked at them as my pushing-six-foot-tall teenaged son walked by, and there was no way they could leave in the purge at this point. They were a reminder of sweet little ones who giggled and pitter-pattered around the house, not the yelling, eye-rolling, “Geesh, mom” beasts who now dwell here…They are lovely, just in a very different way.

  2. The Portuguese chicken caught my eye! In my opinion, colourful crafts from trips can be fun to look at for years, but when you start seriously downsizing, some of them very obviuosly become top candidates .
