We are now into week 8 of our 52 week goal. And I'm still going strong sorting and selling and gifting items we no longer need, or more importantly ready to let go. Sold via Trade me so far is $743.30 that is 131 items (mainly books we have let go). There is just no way of getting around having boxes sitting by my computer in the dinning area while I work through this goal. It's quite nice knowing some other children are going to enjoy the lovely books we have so enjoyed over the years.
I'm still being told quite firmly the barn is a no minimalist zone.
Our family all enjoyed Argo very much - highly recommended! No wonder it won at the Oscars!
It sparked quite a discussion in our family and triggered wanting to know more. We were surprised the film said the Kiwis had turned them away, NZ is known as a peace keeping country so felt better when we read the following.
Upon its wide release in October 2012, the film was criticized for its claim that the New Zealand and British diplomats had turned away the American refugees in Tehran. Diplomats from New Zealand had proved quite helpful; one drove the Americans to the airport, and organised a place for them to hide if they had to change places.
Just imagine if the world could live as one
and in peace!
A handy remedy to have in your cupboard for humans or cats re bee stings is Apis Mellifica (Apis) (For NZ folk I've linked you to NZ homoeopathy chemist). Give a dose every 15 minutes for up to 5 minutes - of course any real reaction a trip is required to the vets.
NEWS FLASH - Prince the rooster's first crow this morning was 6.34am - getting earlier ye ha! he still has a long way to go to beat me and Rory.
