Out with the old, in with the new, hm? Tch. Typical.

Throw me a bone once in a while, then we'll talk.

[What exactly do you think this is, Adachi??]

Hello! It's been a very long time... are you finally going to find me some friends? I have the tea all ready, and I'm sure Tarin would love it if I talked to someone else for a while. He's very patient, but he's heard so many of my stories already. And, poor dear, he just doesn't really understand very much about magic these days, if he ever did.

Oh! but please don't let Tarin out for now. People always get so very strange about him. I think it's because of- you know. [She lowers her voice] His condition.

[Is that... a quiet groan, from somewhere in the background? Maybe. She looks around a little guiltily, before bringing her attention back.]

But I really shouldn't keep you, I suppose. It's just been so long since I had the chance to chat. I miss it.

Weekend uncluttering

I completely missed Wednesday's post, for reasons that mostly had to do with trying to decrease my online time, so this report is going to have a full week's worth of rambling on decluttering!

Tuesday, I upended (carefully) a washbasket full of papers and bits that had been cleared off the kitchen table some weeks ago. About half was quickly dealt with and binned, the rest has been stacked for later. Thursday/Friday I read enough of three books to know that I wasn't going to keep them (I did finish one), and then Saturday I passed them to a friend. Saturday, I looked at the shelves in the lounge (one of those IKEA ones made of squares) and grouped like things together, and then filled a washbasket with items to show to the kids, to see whether we want to keep any of them. And today I drank the last cup of the very tasty, interesting, but not replaceable tea, thus emptying up a space in the tea drawer (goal: tea drawer ~ 2/3 full).

Somewhere during the week, I pulled out a box of incomplete craft projects, and Saturday I sat long enough to finish one of them! It needs blocking, and then taking to recipient, but it is done!

What about you? What one thing are you setting free today?

Well, this week we got rid of a big thing, but it did not make space in the house. We sold our 1989 Ford Aerostar van to a local auto recycler; it is still drivable, but the gas line is leaking (for the second time) and we did not want to spend cash to repair it. The recycler will probably strip it for parts - the engine block is fine; never a problem. Anyway, Thursday at 5:15pm the van was loaded on a big flatbed and driven away. It was Bill's band transport for many years so things were sad for a while.

We decided to do this on Tuesday; Wednesday is a free day for me, so we spent it clearing out the van. It had served as a storage locker for several years; driven when we needed to haul lumber or something else too big for the car. A lot of pillows and old blankets used for band equipment packing was removed and mostly junked. The console was full of old maps, coins, crushed boxes of kleenex, winter gloves, and other odds and ends, and dirt. The old bicycle pump was there, 6 plastic or rubber ponchos, 3 windshield brushes, several ice scrapers, mu old union jacket, a bag of towels stored for road needs, Bill's emergency road bag with towels, soap, toothpaste and brush, a flannel shirt, and who knows what else. Four tennis balls were in a side pocket, left from the 1990s when Bill had a lunchtime tennis game with some of my office mates. My jacket, the bike pump, 4 of the ponchos, the brushes and ice scrapers, the emergency bag, a bag of clean rags, the console, the old road atlas and a few other things either went into the car or came in the house for further inspection. The license plates went in the garage, in case we buy another vehicle while they are still good.

We park in the driveway; the garage would not hold both vehicles, or even one. So the driveway looks odd. The gravel the van parked on has a big white oval not yet covered in blown dirt. We will see how long that lasts. We did find that a mouse had at some time lived there; a nest was made in a hollow where a third seat was supposed to attach and there was a stash of seeds stored nearby. No sign of the occupant, though, so it may have been abandoned. I am sure it was a lovely house; no cats, dry, out of the wind, plenty of old pillows to chew.

Now I have to finish sorting the stuff removed. I may get all our cotton rags together and sort them for various purposes, and maybe get rid of some.

Intimate verses

Look! No one saw the amazing
Burial of your one final dream.
Only the ungrateful and mean
Gave you a shoulder for weeping!
Get used to the cesspit that awaits!
Man, in this miserable land,
Surrounded by wild beasts, can only stand
By dishing out even stronger bites.
Take a match – light your cigarette!
The kiss, the friend, precedes the spit,
The hand caresses – before the stick.
If someone saves you from hell,
Stone the hand that treats you well,
Spit on those who try to kiss you!
