    Brought some books to work today. At least one was taken by a coworker; the others are under consideration. If she doesn't want them I will donate them.
    Also tossed a book in the trash. I used to use pages from old books in my collages but I haven't been doing that sort of work. There is also never a shortage of old books around.

    More books...are you seeing a trend here?

    Also tossed a piece of junk mail I found taped to the wall in my kitchen. It was from 2008 and was addressed to a deceased neighbor. Spouse must have found it amusing or something. All the neighbor had to do was send in $19.95 and she'd be able to claim the MILLIONS she'd won...

    I loaded up the back of the car today with two boxes of clothes and books, a couple of tote bags containing jewelry I didn't want, the doll I mentioned, some old shoes. Drove down to Sally's and back. Took me 20 minutes. Back to clearing the bookshelves, I guess.

    Thank you, danna.

    Today I threw out a bunch of old term papers from when I was in college, plus early drafts of short stories (why did I keep all my drafts?). I also donated several books to the library that relate to local history. Tossed some broken jewelry into the trash, too.

    Recycled four pieces of plastic dishes/lids from Chinese restaurant food, tossed a pair of hole-y undies, and brought five books to the library to donate.

    Well, I made it to the last day of November, and I think I'm going to keep doing this for December.

    Today's donations: five books (big surprise there!) and a fancy umbrella I gave to a coworker.
