    Ellen, that is very nice! Mr. C and I are sort of in that mode, too. We are celebrating our wonderful garden harvest by cooking great meals, and enjoying the mild warm weather before winter hits (sorry, I know it is extra hot in your locale!) Our house is a work in progress, but decluttering is a way of life for us now. We are not fully there yet, but it is getting better all the time.

    Rearranging furniture is always fun! Buddy the cat ends up a little confused, but he gets used to it eventually.

    No problem. Actually, it was extra hot yesterday, but today it cooled down a bit and the high this afternoon was a chilly 80-something!

    Did anyone, besides me, take that religion quiz that they were talking about on the national news yesterday? It was a test of religious facts of different religions. Only 15 questions. I did much better than I thought I would, but I still scored below the agnostics and athiests. Maybe I was paying more attention than I thought when I was in school, in spite of my intentions! I gave myself a pat on the back! If anyone is interested, I can send you the link.

    I just took it-- 80%, and my holes mostly had to do with Asian religions... I think school and the media had a lot to do with that.

    Do you have a link to it? I'd like to take it. Or search words.

    The four of us all took the test and did quite well. There was only one that I wasn't sure about, but could narrow it down to two answers and guessed right. My kids credited their high school sophomore global studies teacher for their good scores.

    I wouldn't have done so well if I'd been one of those given the quiz over the phone. I'm a visual person, not an aural one.

    I'd like to see all of the 32 questions.

    I got 13/15. The two I missed were about Christianity!

    I think it is great that both Gut and Mrd have something good to be obsessed over.
    It is encouraging me to do some much needed decluttering.
    12/15 and I was probably drawing instead of paying attention.
