I'm still kicking

I realize as I move things to our new home that some things have to go.  I'm weeding out my book collection drastically.  I'm keeping those I love, the ones I know for certain I'll read again.  There are others I've kept, intending to re-read: Now I realize I'll never get around to them again.

I may have some sort of giveaway before it's all finished, so stay tuned, you bookworms.

Books I'll keep:

All my Mark Rashid books... even if I no longer have a horse.

"An Hour Before Daylight" by Jimmy Carter

The book my friend Virginia Farless wrote (she's Chonda Pierces' mom).

A dozen or so diaries and journals I kept back when I used pen and paper and photos and newspaper clippings to chronicle events, rather than blabbing about my insignificant life on the Internet.

A book about the history of my little town, starting back before Civil War times.

"Peace Like a River"

Egermeier's Bible Story Book:  as a ten-year-old, I'd stay awake reading it in my bedroom, soaking ginger snaps in a cup of milk as I read.  My mom would check on me, see the light on, and remove a fuse from the fusebox so I'd go to sleep.

And so many more.

Wow life can move fast. I feel like so little time has passed since you got the notion to look for a new home and WHAM here you are moving in.  I know it probably felt like snail pace to you, but I'm amazed at all the changes.

That windshield is looking good.  Odd, isn't it, how many hobbies and simple pleasures keep draining the wallet?  LOL

You really are moving right along on your 'move'.

Catching up on your journal.  Wow, moving that trailer was something else wasn't it?  I hope I never have to back a mobile home into any driveway!  It is very nice too!  Linda

Good Morning..
You will be so excited when you move in to your mobile home.  I think it's so much fun decorating a new place with all your treasures.  I remember when we moved, we had to throw so much away.  Have a great day.
Hugs,
Pat
