Tis the Season for Donations

Today is the true beginning for the year. It is the first Sunday beginning the first full week and everything to this point is mostly a warmup for the main event. The first few days of the year have been a test drive for the year. 

Hopefully, things will settle down soon because the news certainly has been unsettling to start the year. 

Yesterday was a busy day, it seems that Chris and I are doing want many others are doing--cleaning out and donating. As part of our New Year's commitment 
(note that I consciously did not call it a resolution) to begin cleaning out the house and reducing the amount of "stuff" we have we cleaned out two closets and began reviewing the holdings in the attic. We made a drive-by at Goodwill with a lot of items to donate and found the place clogged with throngs of others doing the same thing. The place was jammed. It was good to see so many people donating things--and it was too late for a 2019 tax deduction. 

Chris and I will be making many more donations throughout the year as we do that magical thing--downsize.
