This weekend is going to be a mess. We'll be out of town, so no flinging. And we'll be bringing a bunch of DH's stuff from his folks house. They're moving, and there's finally a push to retrieve all of his things. We will be getting rid of an old OS8.6 mac in the process, though. That will be one nice, fat, fling! :)

Yippee! I flung 3 large pieces of denim and 6 bags of cut up blue jeans to a friend making a blue jean quilt. They are gone! Amen!

Sorting through library books. Photocopying what I want out of them and returning them all to the library. This might not seem like much of a fling, but DH is a librarian and consequently doesn't pay fines. We've had some of these books a long time...and there's no excuse for it! So I'll be flinging about 10 books out the door soon.

I flung junk mail, magazine, and 2 raggedy old shirts.

I work in the basement, getting things ready for the new chickens coming on the 18th. Cleaned and tossed. 16 things gone.

"Flung" one potted plant (a chive that I gave to my mother), one pot (bigger one that she wanted to put the plant in), and a double-flight bird cage.

Well I'm not counting the library books as flung, even tho they're out of the house. The thing is, we're bringing stuff in now with DD#1 moving. We bought a curio cabinet and two dressers off her...one to be resold to a friend. And we have more stuff coming...hopefully to replace things. So it should be an even trade. We'll see.
I also bought myself an insulated steel drinking container, and threw out the old plastic one. So that's a wash. But I also bought a salad spinner. I've never had one and I notice my salad greens are going bad in the fridge now there's only two of us. I'm hoping this will keep the liquid off them and they will last longer.

My sister brought up a piece of exercise equipment yesterday, so I will probably have to add one. I'm going to see what I can fling today, and also decide if I want to keep this item.

I got a new set of silverware for a Christmas gift and finally got around to cleaning out silverware drawer to put new stuff in. I gave the old set to my DS. So that was 1 Fling for today. I gave him so old dishes and pans for one of his friends who doesn't have alot to get by on. 12 more things. And gave him 2 of those old advertisement coffee cups that everyone seems to have in that top cupboard. 13 total today

I sold some kids books (count 1), a ceramic mouse (1), and 5 bowls at the flea market today(5). I took some hardcovers (5) to the dump as well as some pound-in edging (1). Then I took some pots (3) to the farmstand. I got 2 buckets with soil, took one bucket back with the edging and put the soil in the garden, and one large (8 1/2 x 11) solar calculator. Net count 13 things out!
