We've been living in a sea of boxes for over a year now. Over time the boxes became heaps and then the heaps became piles. What a mess.
It was cold and windy yesterday and I had planned on spending the day sitting and knitting but my allergies made short work of that dream. As soon as I sat down I was miserable. My dusty old wreck of a living room needed a deep clean and a vicious sort out.
My living room book shelves have been lining the hallway since January 2020. We moved them to do the painting and to refinish the floors and there they still sit. I had boxed up all my unwanted books in anticipation of a trip to donate them and they've been sitting in the living room with the other piles ever since. Yesterday I unboxed them, cleaned and put them back on the shelves just to get them off the floor. I also sorted out all the food stuff-pet and human and shelved it too. No more boxes. I have quite a pile for recycling.
Before I did any of that though I had to get what was on those shelves off and guess what it was? Yarn. It seems my pandemic yarn buying has been a bit out of control.....and there is more on the way. Yikes.
