It is a cloudy day in Minnesota, but mild temperatures (about 50 today). Sunday afternoon, hubby and I went back to the farm after about a 3 weeks absence because of all conference travel. It was good to get back. Time is helping us to process our loss and move forward. Remember how some of my themes for the New Year are downsizing and organization?? Well, nothing like a fire to assist you in those efforts! We began in earnest the process of emptying out the house of the rest of the contents. All items need to be cataloged as best as we can for our insurance claim. I am taking pictures of everything with my iPhone and will input later into a spreadsheet. We filled about half of the dumpster with smaller pieces of furniture and about 30 large construction type bags full of our books, CDS/DVDS, my research files and books (!?!?!), toys, kitchen and other stuff. Here are a few pictures:
and the promise of spring is in the air!
I finally kicked the bad case of bronchitis-like illness I carried around for the last 10 days. I still have a residual cough, but feel great. Today I will head out for a long walk and hopefully a short bike ride. Eating was really on target this weekend. I am hoping to get to a new all time low before the Tour de Cure.
Hope you all had a good weekend. Stay strong and TTFN, Michele
