We are gradually getting back to what passes for normal at our house. The renovations to the sun and quilt rooms are all but finished. We have to buy a couple of acoustic tiles to replace those that got wet during the winter leak and something to cover the floor in the sun room. On Thursday, we will be going to Huntsville as I have to get a test on my thyroid (only got one side remaining) so will go to our favourite store while there. We buy the majority of our building and other items at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore as the prices are good, the articles are being recycled and the money raised helps build houses for those in need.
I am, as I am sure you are as well, a firm believer in the 3R's. We try to buy used whenever we can, donate unneeded items to the same organizations and trade rather than purchase when possible.
I have just reduced my dressmaking patterns from 9 boxes to 2. Some of the leftovers are being donated to an organization holding a garage sale, others given to a friend and the remaining will be used to start our outdoor fireplace. I am also getting donating a lot of dressmaking fabric.
I have decided that I am not going to be making all our clothing anymore. We don't need a lot of wearable's and, when we do, I purchase most of it from charity shops.
The weather report predicts rain for today but so far it is just hot. I have put off going for a walk just in case but I think I am going to hitch up the dog and go for a short one at least.
