We’ve been saying for years, “we need to get rid of some stuff!”–well the decluttering process has begun! Saturday morning we took photos of several pieces of equipment placing ads on Craigslist. Two of the items I also listed on our local Facebook online garage sale site. By late afternoon on Sunday the flatbed for a truck, a roller you fill with water and pull over fields to squish rocks (how’s that for a technical description!), a hay grapple, and two large down riggers for a boat (how we came to own those is a story for another day! ;)) were all gone down the road. We also have a commitments to buy for a couple other items too. We were on a roll!
In our basement were boxes and boxes of old records–bank statements, tax returns, medical records–some dating back to before my time with the Cowboy and we’ve been married almost 22 years! So, Saturday we sat down and started going through those boxes and finished the task on Sunday afternoon. We ended up with less than a handful of papers and sent lots of stuff to the burn pile! We are really on a roll!
Saturday evening we took a break from making our life simpler–Lonn called with a dinner invitation–who could resist an invite for crab and steaks!! And we would get to see Brooks! We had a great evening with our family and Brooks is starting to warm up to both of us–
As we were traveling to Lonn’s last night the Cowboy spotted an eagle and made a u-turn so I could photograph him. I never, ever tire of seeing the eagles!
Emmi is saying, “what took you guys so long to buy me a new CanAm??” She jumped right in and hopped up on her perch in the middle when the Cowboy took a load of papers to the burn pile–right at home. We are loving the new machine–quieter, much quieter than our 2013 one.
Life is good!
