Things I want

People have been concerned about what gifts they can give, with my massive downsizing, that will still be useful to me. I’ll add to this as I come up with things.
-stainless steel electric skillet or pot-without a stove, this would be especially helpful. I just got an electric pressure cooker and enjoy it.
-a 5×7 stoneware baking sheet to make cookies and pizzas in my toaster oven.
-baskets to store things in, especially nesting baskets, to replace plastic storage containers.
-perishables-soaps, shampoos, and “treats” like nuts, fruits, and home canned goods.
-glass food storage containers. Just not a box of 20!
-A good hand mixer to replace my full sized mixer.
-A small, energy efficient space heater.
-Heavier, large curtains for the windows.

Things I want rid of:
-plastic storage containers (not good for my health)

OK, so Christmas might be hard next year, I’ll admit.

The wonderful thing is that after my massive downsize this year, still everything I want will replace lower quality or larger items I already have.


About thrugracealone

I'm a country girl raised city. I prefer open windows to AC, love a good thunderstorm, and enjoy hearing the owls and seeing lightning bugs. A bit old-fashioned, maybe, I can recognize many trees by name, resent elms and weeds, wish for a large garden and canning skills, and hope someday to downsize and get a few acres in the country. I am blessed with a terrific church, a good job, a sturdy house, two cats and a yard full of strawberries and mulberries in the right season. Some of my other favorite things to do are spoiling nieces and nephews, reading, swimming, biking, long walks, and blogging, of course. One of my favorite stories is creation. My abbreviated version goes like this: 1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2Now the earth wasa formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters... And God moved... And God said... And it was very good. If God can speak to darkness, to an earth without form and void, and make something like this that we see everyday, and make it very good (and it was even better before the Fall!), He will surely make something wonderful out of the dark, void situations I sometimes find myself in. He has, and it's been very good. Two top posts: Can a Person Lose their Salvation? Baptism!
