I dragged a kitchen chair into our closet yesterday so I could reach the storage bins on the shelf. Even though it’s been warm the past week and will continue to be warm for the next few days, I’m tired of my summer clothes and wanted to see what fun stuff I might have packed away for cooler weather.
The cats sniffed around as I opened one bin then sat on top of the other to observe. The first bin had thick fisherman sweaters and deep winter tunics. Those won’t be useful for a while. Beneath those were a few lighter weight sweaters that will be good for fall. From the second bin, I pulled out corduroys, a couple of sweater dresses, a lightweight turtleneck dress.
As I laid the bulky clothes out on my bed, I realized I needed to find a place to put them. I opened the dresser to study what was in there. I eyed my closet to see what I won’t wear again now that the highest temperature in the foreseeable forecast is 80℉ (27℃).
The kitchen chair is back at the table, pushed neatly in. In the closet now, on a shelf I cannot reach, are my board shorts and sundresses. Close at hand in the dresser, I’ve got warm comfies for fall and winter.
I need the cold weather to begin so we can just get this over with.
