Granddaughter #2 out on the lake
Whoa. Having all three grandkids around was quite tiring. I'm feeling a little more peppy today but still feeling like I need a nap. What a wuss I am.
Need to straighten the backyard up but it is way too hot. May stay the same until October when it begins to cool a little in Texas. Granddaughter #1 loves to play out there but I have to spray her down with Off because the bugs love her. I really hate that stuff and never put it on myself. Anybody know of anything more natural? I remember that once upon a time the Avon handcream was said to keep them off but I never tried it so don't know if it is true.
I cleaned out my wallet and purse today. Sounds easy right? Not so. I carry a fairly small crossover/shoulder style soft leather bag. It is just big enough for a wallet and a couple of breakfast bars if I know I will be gone all day.
In the old days (before retirement) I used this purse as my shopping purse. When I was off to serious shop I would just take my wallet and drop it in the bag and then be off. Since I retired I use it full time. I no longer carry goodness knows what that used to fill my big purses. I no longer change purses nor do I have a large selection anymore. That last new purse I bought is still unused hanging in the closet. Therefore, I try not to buy purses at all anymore.
My wallet is getting a little beat up and peeling. I will probably invest in a new one - maybe the after Christmas sales. Because my wallet is wearing out and I'm not ready to purchase a new one, I try to keep the things I stuff in it to a minimum. Today I removed several business cards. Several receipts, one of which I kept in my receipt box and the rest were destroyed. I also removed all the change. I usually put any change I am given in the pocket in the car door handle so it is there when I need it. I buy a lot of Jack In the Box Big Texas Cheeseburgers which are $1.50 so those quarters come in handy.
I don't know what they call the Big Texas Cheeseburgers in other states but it is a cross between a regular burger and a child's burger. A better size than a big burger and more filling than a child's.
Anyway all the receipts, gum wrappers, half-melted breakfast bars, 2 lip glosses, several pens, tissues (new and old), and coupons are now removed from my purse and/or wallet and it is feeling light as a cloud.
No great accomplishment but I feeling rather please with myself.
