Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

I have lost count of the number of times I have moved household! They say 10 moves equal one fire so, although I consider "move" a "four letter word", they certainly have cut down greatly on the amount of stuff I have accumulated - still too much! As I embark on yet another new beginning: there is stuff stored at the mill which I will go through After the big move and see what still fits my life. I believe there are things I have not seen since they were packed on Whidbey; that does not mean there is nothing precious there - maybe. We are fortunate that we can move only that which we really want into the new house. I intend to remove as much as possible to the mill before hand as well as sort out with R - Do you really want this/these????? He has an ugly china cabinet (he loves) full of china and stuff I detest... And an ever increasing collection of glass vases - I like two... I am rather counting on him treasuring this new home enough to let go of stuff that does not suit it. I am only dealing with kitchen stuff and household pretties - obtained 4 lovely valances at the thrift shop this week and an elegant glass pitcher - for which I have been on the lookout.

Going back to Quebec on Sunday, perhaps Saturday if snow is threatened, with a load for the mill and will add to it and deliver on the next snow-free day. Also taking portable wheel and clay so I can work there if it is warm enough. Leaving a wheel here so I can work here when I get back. Have managed to get none done in this two week stay. Maybe tomorrow...
