This I’ve Learned

 I WAS THINKING…
that I needed to donate the box of clothing before I dug through them and
hang some back in my closet. I wondered if thrift shops were even taking donations now. The one I found was not only taking donations, but it was ‘Senior Monday’, 50% off everything for seniors. So, I stayed and rummaged with other masked seniors.
I came home with two small lazy Susan turntables. I wasn’t sure where to use them, but it didn’t take long to realize how niffy they would be in many places, like the fridge, pantry,office and different shelves. I was so excited! I can’t wait to buy more and larger ones.
 Gosh, is this ‘staying at home’ business making me appreciate little things more or is it a sign of how bored I really am if I can get so excited over a lazy Susan.

    Hi Theresa: This week’s Happy Face looks “scary”

    FYI: When seat belts were first introduced in cars, many refused to wear them. It was against their sense of freedom. The car manufacturers claimed that it was too costly to install them in every car. Only when a law was enacted after thousands of death, did most people accept the fact that seat belts saved lives. The same was true of wearing a helmet when riding a motor cycle.
    Unfortunately, wearing a mask is the same story. But this time, we don’t have a decade to wait for Congress to enact a law.

    Gosh, I have rummaged thru my box of giveaways and put an item on a hanger and back in my closet. This afternoon I threw out a bunch of “stuff” stuffed here and there in the backyard: empty plastic pots and a big tray from the flower nursery, parts of humming bird feeders, old pair of rubber clogs and a few other things. Trash get picked up in morning, so won’t have a chance to retrieve something.

    I did not do so well on the riddles; only got one right. That must be because I’m tired and ready to hit the hay.

    Thanks Theresa for the fun blog!

    Hi Theresa,
    I think I need to find some Lazy Susan’s. You make them sound like such fun. I agree the limited life we are all living now has given us a better appreciation of the small things.

    Thank you for this fun blog. I only got the last two riddles correct. I expecially like the first one concerning a smile.

    Wishing you a great day Theresa.
