Did I say I didn't have birds here? I put a suet feeder on the tree for the woodpecker that comes by sometimes. Told Bob to give the birds 2 weeks to find it.
In less than an hour this happened. I was napping and missed who the visitor was but I was very excited.
Decided to watch for a bit. In a flash 4 STARLINGS descended and covered the feeder. I fear my suet feeding days are over. I am not happy!
My answer to everything is a notebook/organizer. I was in glory when they came out with those. Can't tell you how many I've worn out. My daughter says when I'm old and senile she's going to take one of my organizers with many pages, stand in front of my chair every morning before she goes to work, and thrown all those pages up in the air. That way she won't have to worry about what I'm getting into while she's at work. I'll be busy putting my organizer back in order. The next day she will repeat the process.
I thought of that this morning talking to my sister-in-law. I've been in the family with her 54 years and have never known her to be able to even think an organized thought, let alone do any. For many years that drove me crazy. I tried very hard to organize that woman but it was just not meant to be. One time she even bought a Chief school tablet to write in but that failed as well.
In our conversation this morning she was lamenting to me how overwhelmed she was feeling with life. How she used to be able to keep everything together, (NOT), but now she can't find anything or remember any of her business matters. I cannot tell you how many hundreds of times we've had this same conversation, over and over and over.
Paper is her undoing. She apparently believes every ad she gets is a personal letter. Never seen anybody who could save so much of that stuff. She's reluctant to throw anything away until she's 'gone through it.' She had boxes upon boxes of that stuff to go through recently when she downsized from house to apartment. She's always sure there's a bargain in there or something she needs that she wouldn't find out about any other way.
Not me, my biggest pleasure is filling up trash containers. When Bob was in good health he would take all the post paid envelopes and fill them with ads from other advertisers and mail them back. That's one way to get rid of trash.
My sister-in-law is always sure she can buy car insurance cheaper than what she currently has. That was her plight this morning. She was calling different companies and had lost her current policy among all the papers and advertisements she had in front of her. She does that kind of stuff all the time. She jots down quotes but fails to date the note or note the source of the quote.
Not me, I hate using the phone. Find a good company and stick with it. That's my motto.
She managed to hang on to their marriage license 59 years and then lost it taking care of business after her husband died. Had to go through all the hassle of getting a new one.
Keep that stuff all together I say. No need to have information scattered all over the house.
How much of an organizer are you?
