Purge Yes….Minimalist….Probably Not…..

Today for some unknown reason I needed to clean and purge the kitchen. It took most of the day but I took everything out of every cupboard or shelf, wiped it down, and decided what went back. This wasn’t as drastic as the basement event with KB but I let some things go. I think in this room my ReStore pile is bigger than my Ebay/garage sale pile. I didn’t pack anything away in a “maybe” box and I only have one item that I can’t decide on. Do you remember the big Papered Chef craze? I have a round pizza stone that I hosted a party to acquire and yet….I haven’t used it in years. Does it stay or does it go? I haven’t decided yet.

Yesterday SB and I went to a mala class. It was fun and informative. There are a few things that I would definitely do different the next time I make one. I picked Hematite for my guru bead and it was pretty heavy. I have noticed some gaps in the silk thread and I think my dousing of E600 will stop it from further loosening. If I had used crimp beads before the guru bead I don’t think that would be an issue. Honestly….I think I want to take the time to learn how to knot in between each bead like a traditional mala. I’m still glad I took the class, plus I got to hang out with SB for a couple of hours. Mine is on the left….just in case the key didn’t give it away.

We ate lunch and then hit the library for their book sale. The girl has been on a major rice kick and recently stated that she could live on rice. I found this book for $1.00 and scooped it up for her.

Last night she made rice balls. They weren’t bad, I wasn’t crazy about the ones with the plum sauce but the ones with the red peppers were tasty.

My appointment at the credit union went well and my loan was approved. I still haven’t found a car though…I have never shopped for a car this way before? I went in and said what can I get for $this amount a month? She gave me a total and that is what my loan was approved for, so now I just need to find a car that is worthy. I was a little nervous while waiting for her call and am relieved that I was approved. I think my mom had a hand in this one. The woman who approved the loan has a name very similar to my moms and I tried not to get my hopes up just because of that…

We even had a new patient this week with her name, spelled the same way. I get it and I see the signs. I love it when the signs are in remedial form.

All I can do is the best I can right now and today it was cleaning and purging my kitchen.

This was a weird weekend and not because of the time change. I didn’t even wash my scrubs until late this afternoon and that usually happens on Friday. Book club was Friday but still…there was Saturday. Nope. Yesterday the girl and I had a Fixer Upper marathon. Please don’t ask me where that came from….I have no idea? Maybe that’s what inspired me to get back on track with my downsizing? If anything….it will make my next move a little easier…..Zia
