This weekend I put my toe into the proper Minimalism Movement waters, well, not really. I did spend a lot of time going through drawers, getting rid of duplicates of things and old papers that I know I shall never reference again. I still have a stack of user manuals for which I need to see if PDFs exist so that I can rid my house of them as well. I am giving the recycling truck a lot to take away today. Apparently I am not the only one spending time ridding their houses of goods, last night the City of Atlanta sent out a voice mail saying that all trash must be in bags, and that bulk trash will only be picked up by appointment. I’m still struggling with how to get rid of things that are either still functional, or for which I have a modicum of sentimentality.
I heard yesterday that my favorite Irish bar, RiRa, has closed permanently. What I was told is that it was planning on shuttering in May because their landlord wanted a year’s rent paid upfront, and that COVID-19 accelerated the closure. Dangen!
Hope you had a decent weekend.
