Rain On My Parade??? … No… Yard Sale!

Gift…

I have purged myself… OK …. I know there are several definitions ….

I’m using it in the case of…

to clear of imputed guilt ( I have collected way to much stuff that I don’t need (or want)…

to rid of whatever is impure or undesirable ( I guess it’s pure??? and maybe desirable to someone else… I hope!)…

So I’m wondering if that definition fits???

What I have done… is to “purge” my closet of unwanted… don’t fit anymore … out of style… things I have had hanging for years…

Clothes… purses … carry-all bags… (I had already purged the shoes) … so I’m not going in that direction again…

My husband and I purged the shed  the other day…

A table/4 chairs… could use painting… but, oak and very sturdy…

A headboard and rails … No room for them… and no need…

A neat fold-up rocking chair … sturdy but, could use an update on the chair fabric pattern…

A few Holiday decorations and decorative items I call “whatnots”…

After I began purging… my son’s collectibles  got a purging

NO!… I would never touch any of them… Only things he says can go!… and he must have been in the same mood as me… because he has brought me a lot of items

Old toys… mirrors… framed posters… PEZ Candy dispensers… ( I have to admit I was in on that one! ) At least 100… COKE items… A pretty neat variety!

My husband who is always saying, “You need to get rid of some of this stuff!”…

and come to think of it???…  He has not contributed anything of his to this growing pile… Hmmm??? Do I dare “purge” a few items of his???… No, I better leave well enough alone… because he is setting up tables for me… lifting and carrying for me… putting up a few signs for me…

So I can have my once a year YARD SALE!…

The cooler time of year gets me in the mood as I’ve said… To purge!… and I’ve forgotten about the last YARD SALE I had and all of the work to get rid of my collected treasures

So, tomorrow is the day!…

It would have been earlier in the week… but, rain came and sat right over my house and neighborhood  … I guess you could say, “It rained on my parade”… or changing the lyrics a little… “It rained on my “Yard Sale”…
