Still here, still kicking. Working on downsizing so it's easier to fit into a 1-2 bedroom apartment in a bit over a year. It takes a while. So far I've taken one book out of the Get Rid Of boxes, that I realized I did want to keep. There's another that I keep dithering over because it's the Lloyd Alexander books in one volume and everyone recommends it but I can't remember if I've read it since high school. Turns out SF Book Club editions do hold up fairly well, by the way. Some of mine are from 1971 and still look great. Which didn't use to feel like a long time ago, but the Home Reno shows keep referring to the '80s as Very Very Outdated.

We'll see.

Downsizing is good, I tell myself. Yes, fewer possessions are good. I'll get rid of...well, not that. And not that one. And not--

I'm being pretty ruthless. I have so many many books and my tastes have changed a bit and others I have practically memorized but I don't want to reread for various reasons. ("Lessa woke, cold.") And then once the books are done it's kitchen and entertaining stuff. Of which I have too much. How many silver dishes does one need?! And cake plates and small dishes and .... But I NEED all those whisks because they all are great at different things. Fortunately they don't weigh much.
