"I hold on to You for dear life, and you hold me steady as a post..." Psalm 63

the EAGLE has landed...

I've been MIA...ever since this guy came to town:

and left THIS in my driveway...

{only a 13 year old girl would want a photo shoot with a dumpster!}

We've spent 7 days sorting, throwing, organizing and throwing some more...I'm down to the attic and the bathroom closet today.  And I'm doing everything I can to ignore it and hope it will just go away on its own....but that's not likely to happen.
 
Yesterday I tackled my room....a virtual jungle of bedroom furniture, projects, junk and left-over business stuff.  I filled several trash bags, made garage sale piles and filled bags for Goodwill until my mom came, at which time we decided to do a little demolition of the desk and sewing area that has been here for years taking up space.  My bedroom gained about two feet in the process!  I hate that it takes moving to actually get this place in order!

It's heading towards 90 degrees here today, which means the attic is probably 100...and the longer I wait, the hotter it will be.  Ugh...

Only 2 more days with "Eagle"....not sure he can handle much more abuse from us. 
Next we're on to touch-up paint and a few other odd-job projects...

Hope the rest of you are enjoying the sun from the outside!

We have been doing only outside work...I think my bedroom is in serious need...sewing stuff, co-op stuff, books, stuff...you know!

Don't forget to let us know the day of the yard sale - hope we can come!

I'm envious, Deanna!!! I've only tasted the sun for small snippets of time...the time it takes to walk to the dumpster and back! Actually, today I treated myself to lunch outside with a good book...a much needed break!
Don't worry, the yard sale will be posted here in large print!!! My whole street has sales right around Memorial Day...I'll likely join in!
