So, how’ve you been? Staying well and safe, but busy? Busy is good.
Since this pandemic started, everything has changed, but repurpose, recycle, and reuse are still good things.
We wanted to change our kitchen eating area from a round table and round rug to a rectangular set up. The local Habitat store wouldn’t take a rug donation and would only approve taking the table if they could preview it. Picky, picky because I remember when they would take anything you had to donate as long as it was home related and reusable.
So, I took to Facebook Marketplace, and sold both within hours and for the asking price.
Instead of paying $150 for six new ones to make three raised planters, I paid $50 for 7.
I’m not sure what I’ll do with the odd one, but maybe I can come up with something.
Are you using Zoom? I’ve had to in order to attend meetings and view webinars. So, I attended an online class to learn about all the little bells and whistles. Okay, so now I know, but what I really wish is to get to a point where I’m not required to use it to interact with people. Matter of fact, I’d prefer to never hear the word, Zoom, ever again. 🙂
I’ve also started the fall cleanup. It was 33°F this morning when I made coffee, brr. Between the brown grass and dirt that was once a lawn and now the cut back perennial beds, it’s pretty unattractive out there. There are a couple of Dahlias and Mexican Sunflowers still blooming along with the Autumn Joy Sedum so the bees are still happy.
I’ve even bought seeds for next year since they were in short supply this spring, and I don’t want to scramble to find them for next gardening season.
Hope you are all well, staying safe and sane. Some days I’m having to work hard on that last part, but some might say I had that challenge before the pandemic. 🙂
