Mostly sunny and about 34 degrees when I got up. Another good morning. I was up before 9 a.m. and got up and took a shower, started some laundry, got about halfway through cleaning the kitchen, and took Bibi for her morning walk. Lots of squirrel activity. We didn’t see any other people out walking. You can still smell the river. The geese are still doing their thing in the river. I’ve been thinking a lot about what this year is going to bring as I pursue this path of intentionality. Yesterday it translated into me paring down my wardrobe by about half, as I cleaned out my closet and tidied up the bedroom. It also entailed me spending about $100 on a shelf for my half of the clothes closet. Hello ADHD. But since my hangers are now mostly empty except for a green suit coat with tan slacks for Mass, a black “marry’m & bury’em” suit, and a few seasonal button-down shirts with ties, I really don’t use or need a lot of hangers. I’d rather my clothes be folded neatly and placed on the appropriate shelf. It allows me to assign a shelf to an activity, like work clothes. “Not work” clothes. Hiking and cycling apparel. And guess what? I’m only allowed to own enough clothes that will fit on the shelves. If it exceeds that, something has to go. And that is the only reason to buy new clothes. To replace something that has worn out or has otherwise been replaced. The old go to the thrift store, are upcycled or downcycled.
