I've been extremely lazy and easily distracted lately. Monday was my last day of employment with H&R Block. Did I spend the week finishing my resume update? Applying to temp agencies? Cleaning house? Reading, commenting, and posting to LJ?
Frankly, I'm not certain what I managed to accomplish this week. But I'll get better at dealing with reality over these next days and weeks. Sigh. I promise.
Once upon a time, my best friend was my neighbor Kate. She was physically tiny but large and effective in her personality, her affect on people and the world around her, and her beautiful smile. Cancer stole her away some years ago now. The current owners of her home--although very nice people--are not appreciative of the many flowers she planted in her yard and on the boulevard. They plan to replace them all with grass. With the new neighbors' permission, I've arranged for some of Kate's old friends to come over tomorrow and Sunday to rescue and rehome as many of the threatened plants as we can. It should be a wonderful and a memory-full weekend.
This afternoon, my scavenging friend Sally and I will be tackling this week's target section of Bloomington. I certainly hope I can find a few (at least one or two) reasonably valuable and sellable items that we can manage to load into my van and bring home. Last week I pretty much only acquired small, low value items. Although the Gizmo Furby from the movie "Gremlins" MIGHT sell for $20 or $30 on eBay... I don't have a picture of Gizmo, but will post photos of some of the other things I brought home. Forthwith ...
That waste basket on top of the dog crate might do reasonably well on eBay. It still has the label on the bottom (I forget which trendy store) and was originally priced around $40. That sort of thing tends to blow my mind--40 bucks for a small container to temporarily put used tissues and the hair from your comb into!( Read more...Collapse )
