Seven Scattered Things

After a long day, I'm just checking in to display today's Saturday Seven. In fact, if I don't hurry up, it will be the Sunday Seven.

The first was my monthly bag of boy clothes, donated to Baby Karl. He's the first boy child in the family so I'm sure they can use hand-me downs.

The second collection is a much more mixed bag of donations. These four items were an extra cotton blanket, some outgrown teen clothes, a stack of religious-themed books that really should be passed on and a soccer net. I don't know how we got the net - we don't even have a soccer goal that it would fit. I dropped these off at St. John the Evangelist for their huge sale.

The two books are great resources for parents of gifted children and I am passing these on a parent at my church.

The last photo is a shower attachment for a tub. We bought this when Oldest Daughter had a broken leg and couldn't shower or bathe easily. She came up with her own system and we never even opened the package. Off to Goodwill! And the lovely blue background? My new wallpaper!! The kitchen may not be finished yet but it is very colorful.

As for knitting - I spend yesterday evening on Andy's brown sweater and tonight on my blue shrug. We also took in a very funny movie, The Boynton Beach Bereavement Club, about life and love in a retirement community. Very funny in a classy, Doris Day, 1960s kind of way.

Oh, and I biked this morning. 18 miles through the Grand Round in Minneapolis. A great trip.

Congrats on the biking! You've definitely been more productive than me this labor day weekend!

And what could be better than a movie in a Doris Day classy kind of way.

You are doing so much better than me at your "sevens!" I need to get a move on!

Finding the time to separate the items is the hard part - everyone has junk to get rid of but I wanted to sort out the useful items from the ripped, dirty, torn, etc., things that were better thrown away.
