Angel Food Cake and Yarn

Yesterday I baked an Angel food cake.  It was probably the first time in at least five years.  I baked it as a way of saying goodbye to the Angel food Cake pan that sits in the upper cupboard above the refrigerator.  I put it back up there, just in case I need it in the next year and a half, but someday it will much easier to put on the for sale table.  I think it is less expensive to buy an Angel food cake  already baked, and I don't think the standard RV oven is big enough for the pan to fit in.

Today I spent several hours bagging the rest of the yarns I had on shelves of my studio closet.  At one time all of my animal sculptures had crocheted skins.  I think it has been at least twelve years since I switched to using fake fur.  I had tossed a lot of yarns some years ago when I had a water leak.  Some went to the Goodwill a few weeks ago, and now the rest is in the van for drop off tomorrow.

(Not a very exciting picture.)  I wish I was photographing exciting scenic places, but for now empty shelves are an accomplishment.

Not photographed is the wall of fake furs, but they are still in use!

Someday I will get in there and wash or repaint the floor, but for now the only thing that will go in there is packing materials!

Daily countdown:
523 days, or 1 year, 5 months, 5 days to go.
Exercise Goal:
1000 miles on the treadmill,  2.25 miles yesterday, miles today

Total walked = 143 miles
Someday I will be hiking 1000 miles  in National Parks!


  1. Merikay: Great job on cleaning out those shelves. It's a great feeling to declutter! Trust me, the more you do now, the happier you'll be later! Keep it up!!!

  2. You're making good progress!!!

  3. It may not be scenic, but empty shelves is a change in scenery! Good for you!

  4. For people trying to get rid of stuff. Empty shelves are a beautiful sight! We'll be patient for pics from the national parks. One step at a time, we will get there :0)
