Giving Thanks

It's that wonderful time of year. We spend several days cleaning, cooking, and preparing, all in honor of Thanksgiving. I was cleaning my desk and getting a little bogged down, surrounded with bits and pieces of paper I didn't want to throw away, but didn't really have a place for. Larry said, "Put it in a box, store it in the porch, and get it out again next year and see if you still want it." Now THAT is very good advice; I followed it immediately.

I took a similar approach with my sewing area. No time to do it properly, so I bundled it all into a box to make decisions about some other time. :>}

I like the way he thinks!

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving. Larry advice is very sensible. Whenever I decide to get rid of something you can bet I need it at a later time.

Yes that does sound sensible! I think shoe boxes are an excellent invention, and as one of our Church-wardens works in a shoe shop our congregation has an unending supply of shoeboxes for storage!!

Sometimes those husbands come in handy with their good ideas, don't they? :D

Wishing you and your family a very happy Thanksgiving, Diana.
