The title of my post today denotes my figurative and literal feelings at this moment, let me explain….
In the literal sense…it is COLD outside…finally some of the still green leaves will lend a bit of color to my outdoor scene, before winter snow begins…I miss seeing the brilliant autumn colors of the eastern United States.
In the figurative sense…a chill set in thinking about the fact that I need to somehow venture outside these four walls of my P.T.S.D. cave to do a little work before winter.
I need to get the hummingbird in and change the dead flowers for some silk winter ones, so I can see something pretty from the window…maybe silk autumn leaves first.
Then I need to get the Hummingbird feeder from the tree, so it will not freeze and meet the same demise as last years model.
Not to mention the terracotta planters…the biggest of which did not see the soil, nor what I intended to plant in it…and the smaller ones, though perfect for halloween…need to have the dead plants attended to…then they need to come in so they will not crack in the winter cold. Hopefully next year I can venture out to plant something beautiful…or tasty!
Last but not least is the hose that needs to be brought in so it will not freeze and the two outdoor faucets that need protective coverings, allowing them not to get frozen, crack and flood the basement.
All this…taking of pictures to show you my intended duties are what put the figurative chill in me…because just taking the pictures frazzled my nerves.
That is why I put the above minion picture in…fits me to a “T”!
Then I have been going through the MOUNDS…and I truly mean MOUNDS of knit and crochet items, piling up on my writing area and around my rooms in bags, boxes (sorry for the poor pictures…lighting not so good in the early morning when these were taken), etc..
In going through all of them…and the storage spaces (for items gently used that cold be sold, i.e., games, cooking items etc.). I was hoping to have a Yard Sale.
But…you know…that means…GOING INTO THE YARD…WITH PEOPLE THERE!
So…it has been put off, weekend after weekend, until now it is colder, almost Halloween, and I’m debating if a Yard/open house would work.
I need to do something, because I’d like my writing space back. Not that I do not love writing at the kitchen table, where I get to see the outdoors, but it is nice to separate the two…(Yes my brother, you were right).
So…I will try to rally my children, who will hopefully feel generous enough to help me for a day or two…both in getting the things done outside that need accomplished before the freeze…and in the Yard/open house I need to have, both to clear my space and make a bit of money!
Now… to set a date and push through another round of fears.
With God and my Family…I know it can be done.
Wish me luck!
The above one is a saying I saw and had to post (found on Pinterest)…to inspire me and hopefully someone else along the way!
Thanks for Hearing!
