Purple Cake for a Purple Friend

Dear Dolly made me a purple pie, as a reward for decluttering my WHOLE house!!
Thanks, Dolly!! It’s so scrumptious!! And purple enough for a Queen! The Queen of Decluttering that is, ME! of course!

Although Roman Emperor Aurelian was a great military commander and “Restorer of the World” (Restitutor Orbis), he was far from generous with his wife. Having “restored” the world by conquering vast territories and defeating armies of those who foolishly refused to be conquered,  he still begrudged Lady Ulpia a trifle – Tyrian purple silk shawl. Granted, the shawl literally cost its weight in gold because purple dye was made from a tiny mollusk found only in the Tyre region of the Mediterranean Sea (now in Lebanon), and it took about nine thousands of those critters to produce one gram of purple dye!

The skinflint ruler undoubtedly could’ve afforded this bit of extravagance for Mrs. Emperor, but very few other people were rich enough to buy even a purple tassel or ribbon. Color purple became a mark of extraordinary wealth and stayed that way for many centuries.

Anathema Anthem

My good friend Susie said that washing dishes was anathema to her.     (Don’t you love that word??)

My immediate response was, “Don’t worry, they don’t like it either!”

So, then I started thinking,  “Hey, I wonder what dishes DO think about it?”

Are they just chillaxin in old sweats?  (Can we agree if mold’s growing on it, then it’s old??  and stinky like sweats?)

slob, humor, moldy can o' food

Then unceremoniously slammed into hot, soapy water, bubbles filling their noses, being boiled alive!!        WHAT THE HECK????

slob, humor, dishes

UGH.

“Hey, oh! Hey!  I’m being scalded alive here!”       I can just hear them shout, loudly!!        I’m quite sure you could hear it too, if you attune your ears to their distress!

Sorry plates, and bowls, gotta do what a slob’s gotta do!!         Maybe next time I won’t wait so long, and then it won’t be such a shock to your delicate ceramic!!

Filthy Fan

This is my filthy fan on the front porch.

slob, humor, fan

Fearfully filthy fan

See how the blades appear gray??   Yeah, they’re actually white, or beige??

Shameful!!  That thing needs a good wash!   It’s a wonder it’s still working, with that ton  of dirt and dust on it!    

I know!   The lady who lived here before should be ASHAMED of herself for having such a filthy fan on her porch!!

What??    You were talking to ME????

But, but…..I’ve only lived here 6 months!!!   (whine whine whine)   Why is it my fault???     (Correction: I’ve now lived here a year, and 4 months!!    Yeah, I started this post 16 months ago!!  And the fan is still filthy!!)         For shame, Melinda!

On my last day, of emptying the trailer out, I decided to actually quit procrastinating, and just clean the thing.

slob, humor, dust snakes

Swipes from the first 2 blades.

My, what lovely dust snakes, you have Melinda!             Why, thank you, Melinda!

slob, humor, sweeping

Showing the last step in the process.

slob, humor, clean fan!

And Ta-Da!

So, I was right both times.     The blades are beige, and the sides are white!

slob, humor, clean(er) fan blade

Oops! Didn’t get it all clean.

And I’m sure it cools better now too!        But, I’ll never know, being as how the electric was already off!

At least I left it in better condition than I found it.

Frightfully filthy fan forgone.

After 20 Seven Seconds’ posts, I have now officially pared down my house, to the bone!!    I can unequivocally say that I literally can not purge another thing.     *gasp!!*

How dare you say that??

It’s easy!      My house is completely empty!       See??     That’s how I dare!

slob, humor, not quite totally empty

Okay, a few little things still need to go, but I think ya get the drift!

slob, humor, only 1 chair left

Okay, ya got me! I can pare down 1 more thing!! I promise it’s coming with us!

Empty kitchen!!!      Just the lonely title, hanging around, waiting for its new owner!    (And ya KNOW I had to leave some tp– for humanitarian reasons!!)

slob, humor, empty pantry   Empty pantry!!       Give a shout, if you get sick of reading the word “empty”!!

                                                    Bathroom is all emptied out!

slob, humor, sisters' stuff stolen??

Sad sisters’ scene

Say what??     Was all sisters’ stuff stolen??

My room, empty as I could leave it.      Yes, I did leave my black computer desk.    I hate it, and the new owner might need it!

I should have left every last drawer hanging out, just for the photo op! lol

Here’s the really, completely, totally empty pix!!

Except for the scooter.      I told XH to push it outside, so trash pick up will get it.    He will, after a restorative nap!       No more small stuff in living room.      High chair high jacked!!


Remember when I said I let the cat out of the bag, about moving??        Well, now you see proof that I am indeed moving.        Where to, is still to be determined.     For right now, Rose’s couch will be my humble abode.      Rose is so wonderful!     She didn’t want me sleeping in the van, so she offered me refuge.

 DD1 and I had a plan for a place, but it fell thru, and the other plan is still in the works, so……..     I’m now a hip, young couch surfer!       Except, my hip isn’t young anymore!      Oh, my aching back!


Thankfully!!     SF came to the rescue, with his offer of a real bed!!       He has a guest room, and I just happen to need to be a guest for right now!!       Serendipitous!

Getting my beauty rest, on a Beauty Rest.


What is wrong with you anyway, Melinda??         Whatever do you mean?      And in what context?              Why are you moving all the time??     Ever since you left XH, in July 2013, you can’t stay still!         Well, each time, I think I’m doing the best thing by moving.

From the apt to Home Sweet Home was to be on my own.

To the next place, was to have more room for the girls!

Now, I’m moving to escape the tyranny of old busybodies who have nothing better to do, than complain about my darling babies!      And their toys!       And their noise!

Seriously, am I the only one in here who ever has grandchildren to visit them????

I didn’t even track how long it took to pack up, and completely empty the house.       I think that wouldn’t be fair, since it’s far beyond the scope of just de-cluttering!!

So the totally total time we ended up with was: 24 hrs and 38 mins.       So incredible, that I STILL had so much clutter!!    smh       After almost 2 years of decluttering now!      To be real, I kept bringing stuff in, or I would have been done long ago!       But, I truly think I have changed my mind set now.      Too many things is not a good thing.        I want to enjoy my life, and the people in my life.    Not waste my life on things.         Plus!  I have stopped shopping, almost totally, since Christmas!      So, there’s that.


Of course, ya know I’ll keep ya up to date on my life, whatever happens.     I’m just moving houses, not like I’m quitting blogging, or anything!


Yay!!     As of May 10, we have our new place!!       Moving in on the weekend!

Pix to come very soon!!

Whirled thru working on the workshop today.    (Sat.  Should have done it Wed!!)

In an hour, I quick sorted thru half of the workshop!!       I couldn’t believe I went so fast!  DD1 was there, helping me.      She looked thru boxes very quickly, if it wasn’t even mine, she put it on the trash pile.       Things that weren’t sentimental, not personal ornaments, new stuff that I forgot I bought, etc, she could donate, or discard for me.   

I kept a couple boxes of pictures, etc, that I need to take my time to go thru at a later date.  But so much stuff I let go!!     Very proud of myself!     And so was she!      She really has been a wonderful cheerleader, in this process.     She acknowledges how hard it is for me to give up stuff, and she applauds every effort I make to trim down.       Thank you, honey!!

The paving bricks, left big pic on bottom, I gave away last Thurs, on Freecycle.      I was so glad to see them waltz away, under someone else’s heavy lifting power, not mine!!     And XH was grateful, too!      He’s been helping me so much, in this purging, and packing up to move process!

I was so tired, (it was HOT in there!), that I forgot to take after pix.      Ah well.     Tomorrow’s another day!       It’ll still be there!        I haven’t signed the title, and given the keys to the new owner yet!       I’m still waiting for him to be approved by the park.      He only came to look at it Wed.    So, I’m trying to chill my jets!

DD1, and I will be moving in together, to facilitate taking care of the girls more easily, and the sharing of Vanronica.      We’ve looked at several places.     Even put a deposit on one, moved the furniture in, and then I decided I really couldn’t live there.     I know!!    Why can’t I listen to my gut feelings the FIRST time????     Anyway, we are supposed to get back half our deposit, when the lady re-rents it (for realz that time).      So, only cost me $400, plus turn on fees for gas, and electric.      Quite an expensive lesson!      But, it would have been far worse, to actually move in, and suffer!!      My mental, physical, and emotional health are far too valuable to me now, to not live peacefully, and comfortably.

(There were code enforcement cases open on the property, parking was a nightmare, the only play space was all concrete, and DD1 and I would have had to share a bedroom.     And the very worse thing of all_ the potty space was too tiny!!!!     I knew better than to say yes, at the time, but squelched my instinctive NO!, just so we’d have a place right away.     The decision was made out of fear on my part.    And I had already promised myself not to let fear run my life anymore.      So, to stay true to myself, I had to suck it up, and cancel the deal.     DD1 was disappointed, so was the landlady, but better they are disappointed, than I live torn in half against myself.     And scraping the hide off my thighs every 3 hours!!)

After an hour’s rest, I asked SF to let me borrow his car, and go back over, to bag up the trash, and the donations.     But instead, he came with me.     Even better!!

And that meant I could take some after pix!     Yay!

Then, he and I went thru more stuff, that she and I didn’t get to. 

Whew!   The results of 2 more hours work!      Well worth the effort!

He piled all the donates outside, on the carport.  

                                                                   Isn’t it lovely??!!

Look at that glorious humongous pile!! I feel tremendously accomplished today!!

 

Previous House Time: 20 hrs 38 min

Workshop Time: 2 hrs x 2 people= 4 hrs   (It was 3 different people, but only 2 people each hour.     Does that clear up the mud?)

Total House Time: 24 hrs 38 min

I’m so exhausted, I.can’t.even.move.    (In more ways than 1!)
