Don’t own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.
~ Wendell Berry, Farming: a hand book
Somewhere, sometime, I read something that suggested one’s outer environment is a reflection of one’s inner state of being. If there is any truth to that, my inner state of being must have been chaotic, cluttered, disorganized, and in need of a good dusting or scrubbing. My inner being was holding on to “fat clothes,” too. Expansion of the inner being is no problem, but my outer being needs to let go of such things. There is no going back.

Is it just me or did life all of sudden become busy?? My to-do list is so long that I almost feel paralyzed by it. Procrastination is tempting, and seems easier than prioritizing.

There are so many things I should be doing right now. Lots and lots of things. But I am going to wait. Just for a little while.
We took Dad and Noah to the train station very early this morning. They should be arriving in Philadelphia about now. Or at home by the time I get this posted. M is back at work. Izzy and Bella (the cats) are napping. I have the house to myself and the quiet is such a wonderful thing I don’t want to disturb it by running the washer and dryer or turning on the vacuum. I’ll have to do those things soon, but not right now. They can wait while I soak up and enjoy this moment of peace and quiet.

Yesterday’s pickling adventures went well. It was fun having someone with whom I could share the work, and I got to see how the Pickle Lady makes her fabulous (Best Pickles on the Planet) pickles.

Home again, home again. It’s good to be back in the Bogs. I am, as usual, way behind when it comes to email and visiting other blogs. My apologies for that. I very much appreciate all of the lovely thoughts, prayers, energy, words, and hugs on my previous few posts. Thank you all so much.
While the reason for the trip was a sad one, it was good to spend some time with family, especially those we haven’t seen in a long time. We said our goodbyes to Jane on Friday morning. It was a small, casual service with mostly family. Although we’ll continue to mourn, funerals have a way of releasing some of that tension and sadness. I suppose it’s a form of closure.
