Reunited With My Clothes

No, I have not been running around without any clothes, but its been the same ones for over a year.  If you are new to reading this, a little over a year ago I closed up my  home and went to Anchorage for a summer job.  Because I flew to Alaska, I was limited to 2 large suitcases and one small carry on, I guess I could have done more, but it would have been expensive.

'It's $50 for the extra bag, $20 for a reassuring smile and $30 for a ‘have a nice flight.''

So my clothes and shoes and fabric all went into a storage unit to wait for my return.  I came to one of my daughter’s homes for several days before I flew up to my summer adventure.  Because we drove here, I could just pile things into the car and sort it out here.  Now I am back visiting that daughter and the clothes I left behind.

Can You Describe It?

I think this is how people prepare to live in those adorable tiny houses  You are allowed 4 pairs of jeans, 6 t-shirts and 3 pairs of shoes, or some such thing.  Having lived much of my life as a clothes-hound, that is beyond my comprehension.  I have cut down drastically since retirement and no need to dress for the office every day. But I have found out a new love for my old things……WHAT??

I could not remember what was here and “knew” a certain pair of boots was going to be among the items.  Not so.  My favorite shorts, those lightweight jackets  I love to layer in the summer and my favorite bathrobe were all here waiting to greet me. It was better than being a kid at Christmas.  You know how the “experts” tell you if you have not worn an item in a year get rid of it, I will agree with that thought.  This is different, we were separated, I will still take a hard look at what I need to take back to my new temporary home.

At least now I am much closer to my things and can come back to visit my clothes and my daughter. Now for the tough choices, what will I wear today.   I am having a great day and hope you are also.
