All winter long, I keep my seeds in a large plastic canister with a tight fitting lid. I store them a cool place to hopefully keep them viable season after season. Now it's time to sort out the jumble and organize the packets into my index tabbed seed box for the upcoming seed planting marathon. I really need a separate box for all the big seeds, such as beans, peas & corn, which are a bit bulky for the indexed box. Dang, I was cleaning out a closet the other day, and threw away a perfect sized decorated box with lid! I didn't even think about using it for seed storage.
Being in an organizational mood, I pulled a big plastic storage box off the closet shelf and started sorting things out...keep or donate. There were several old paintings I had done way back when, probably 35 years ago or more. Most went into the Goodwill box, but when I came across the "Chicken Butts" I hesitated. I always loved that whimsical little painting! I called my youngest daughter and asked if she wanted it, as the colors would be perfect in her kitchen. Then I emailed her a picture. Just as I had decided a couldn't part with it, and it wouldn't look too bad on my kitchen wall over the telephone, Amy called back and said "I WANT it!" Now we both want it. I decided to give it to her, but if she ever decides she doesn't want it after all, I want it back!
So many things in that box. So many memories. How could I ever part with.......
