Today actually wasn’t technically all that productive but I am going to claim it anyway. Three car loads left the house. Two were our car filled to the brim with donations to one of the local charity shops. This particular volunteer group deals primarily with refugees and is in partnership with a small town in Bosnia. Still recovering from last year’s floods, think fabric, yarn, notions. (I mentioned them before I think). What I didn’t mention the last time was their charity shop primarily because I didn’t know it existed. So add in some office supplies, household small items, clothing, bedding, shoes, toys. You get the idea.
Following that, Diana’s sister came by to pick up a large box of fleece. While she was at it, she was willing to take all the extra magazines that were looking for a home. She will share them with her knitting and spinning groups as she gets them sorted out. Oh, and some old costumes, and a bit of fabric (found after the other batch had left). Diana took a number of mags, some yarn and some fiber. Their third sister took a few children’s books. End result? The back of her station wagon packed full. And yes, I did thank them most sincerely!
As part of this, I sorted out three boxes of English Language children’s books headed to a specific school in Africa, all the clothes so far in the donate pile. Those that didn’t go out today will windup at the Thrift Store on Ramstein. All the Jewish children’s books to be dropped at the Ramstein Chapel on Monday.
Did I mention dropping off three large bags of books @ the Neuegasse swap shelf before 0600 this morning (prior to the parking restrictions), going to the Strikktreff at Red and heading down the street for several hours this evening to a BBQ.
I left George there chatting, but I was too tired to be even mildly coherent by 2200.
Tomorrow will be more of the same, only with rain.
