    July Purge

    I have culled three shirts to be donated. In the midst of the summer season, it is easier for me to assess what summer items I really don't want to wear and to enjoy the many things I own that I do want to wear. This brings me to a net outflow of 15 clothing items in 2018.

    I sent a whole box full of odds and ends of "hardware" and tools to my church for Circulation Day---
    which was postponed from yesterday to next Saturday, as the teens wanted to go to the march for "Families Together!"
    Side note, I am so proud of those kids! They also organized a carpool and rounded up about 85 adults to go.

    A lunchbox. I could never get it really clean despite washing it in both the sink and the washing machine. I replaced it with one that sparks joy.

    Some dingy plastic utensils. The remaining unbroken pieces of a set of plates and saucers.

    A charger of unknown provenance I found in the glove box. It's too hot to do much.

    T-shirt and book taken to Mom to disperse. She enjoys giving stuff away. Putting out a pair of shorts to give away, another pair will go after Laundry. A favorite t-shirt is getting small. Haven't decided if it goes yet.
    Bad spellers of the world, UNTIE!
