Other Stuff

each one a thin slice of life

I love the way Claudette shares her life with evocative poetry, lovely images and sprinkled whismsy. If you like the sound of that, pop over to her page to check out the rest of this poem and her blog. 🙂

    Makes me think of all the stuff stored away in boxes in the top of cupboards. Who will have the job of sorting through them and deciding what should be kept or thrown out when I have passed on. And, the piles of searches cluttering my desktop.

    • It makes me think of future family historians rifling through my files, too, Sue. 🙂 I have boxes and boxes of unsorted papers, information kindly sent to me by distant cousins. I tried to have a ‘process one piece of paper a day’ rule but each one lead to days of further research. 😮 You know how it goes. And then every year or two, when I had visitors, I’d throw everything in a box and put it out of sight. I have many such boxes hidden away. [long sigh]

    If you get some small cheap shelves, fill them up with the boxes and put a board across the top & voila, a desk. Or a fancy shawl over a couple of low stacks of boxes and you have a coffee table (for every chair that you own)

    • Oh Sue, I have four wooden filing cabinets (with six large drawers and two drawers all up) and a gazillion hanging folders and plastic sleeves to store my papers. That worked for a year. I brought a great desk with hutch off ebay last year – with a proper pull-out shelf for the keyboard and another for the printer. 😀 I kept it clutter-free for months, so much so that Mr R felt compelled to comment. I remember the first time I saw one of those plain wooden round table forms underneath a long sumptuously decorated tablecloth. I was appalled! It seemed like cheating.

    Have been a bit sneaky lately. Been inputting paper records into the computer & posting the paper to my brother. I can squeeze a heap of pages into the envelope.
