Fabulous Day

Sunday, April 06, 2014

Today was a wonderful day for me. Finished the annual garage cleaning (hurray) and raked out a couple of my flower beds that have daffodils coming up in. Cut down the dead clemantis from last year off the back porch. I usually leave up the vines for the birds to live in over the winter. We get a lot of activity on the back porch over the winter and it is fun to watch them so close up.

Then DH brought up my packed away clothes for me to go thru. I'm planning a trip into town this week and would like to drop off more stuff at the resale shop. Well he brought up 4 tubs, I tried on EVERYTHING and will be dropping off 2 tubs worth of clothing. 2 tubs! No more dress shorts for me that fit, no more skorts or skirts either. At least my only jumper still fits - I love that jumper. I am amazed how as heavy as I was I sure did own a lot of clothing. Wonder why? As I am slimming down I have fewer and I'm glad. Nicer stuff than my old clothes though.

And in those tubs I came across 4 pieces of old Units clothes. Remember those from the 1980's? I loved Units clothes and wore them almost exclusively after I had my first DD. Obviously I liked these 4 pieces more than anything to have saved them all this time. And you know what - THEY FIT AGAIN! OMG I am so wearing those outfits again. DD told me "those crazy colors are back in style" so, yeah me, I'll be styling too.

Back to school tomorrow. I will try to attach a photo of me in my oldest DD's old cheerleading sweatshirt that FITS ME! Woo-hoo.

    Wow! You sure were productive! Makes me feel like I should be doing something more than sitting here with my feet up reading your blog! :-) it is a wonderful feeling to get several projects done in a day. And amazing how much you CAN do when you have good health and good energy on your side. Way to go!

    Yes, well done on great day! You got the things done that you mentioned before. Inspiring me to get yard work done today - thanks!

    It's really thrilling to get back into smaller clothes - and to clear space by getting rid of stuff you don't want any more.

    You look great in the cheerleading sweatshirt! emoticon emoticon emoticon
