I've decided to do a thrift store donation run, as well. FreeCycle is great, but it requires a lot more work than dumping everything in a box and dropping it off at one location!

PIE CRUST

1. combine
-2C flour
-1/2T. sugar
-1t salt
-cut in 1 C. shortening

2. Next bowl
-1/4C cold water
1 large egg
1/2t. Vinegar
Scramble w/ fork until foamy

3. combine both into flour mixture bowl.
make dough

4.Refrigerate 2 hours
5. Roll out on wax paper.
6. To roll south to north,west to east,NW to SE,SW to NE This should make a circle. Put pie pan on top and flip over. Prick the bottom crust all over w/ fork. Put in canned apple filling w/ cinnamon and sugar to taste (easy on the cinnamon. Put your identically rolled crust on top. roll top edges over the bottom and press together (flute-make it wave w/ finger and thumb) make sure top and bottom are sealed. cut slits abot 3" long randomly in top crust. Bake according to filling. Cover w/ aluminum foil for 20 min. of the time. Make sure to have a cookie sheet uner it esp. cherry. Careful filling is like lava when it comes out. Good luck. PM me w/ any questions. This is a generational chuch lady recipe.

Finished the room other than cleaning about 7 storage tubs that used to contain JUNK that I no longer own. It's so shiny. My next fling area will probably be a linin clset or the front closet. I may take Sunday off. I have to call the dry waller later.

Sold 4 books today, bought one. Thought I'd lost it and got a replacement copy and DH bought a book too. Found the "lost" copy (I'd put it in a bag) so I'm only got one more thing flung today, sigh.

Blew out my flip-flops (but not by stepping on a pop-top, for you Buffet fans), so they were tossed. Can't complain. I bought three or four pair a few years ago, at about $1.00 each, and have managed to make them last until today. Not much you can do with ONE good flip-flop.

Two things taken to the dump (a sign holder and strainers), 2 things to the gallery (a poster to be added to the yard sale donations and labels as I had some like they use to label exhibits). Only 3 things sold yesterday: curtain valances (the old ones from my office) and 2 books. :)cry:)

Seven more added to my total out.

Cleaned out my purse last night. Most embarassing how much there actually was to clean out. Now I can close my wallet and my shoulder doesn't hurt (shrug).

Giving myself 10 more points for the weekend. Tossed out some hangers, a shirt that I haven't worn in about 6 years (it makes me feel old to be able to say that), a good bunch of receipts and expired coupons, and probably some other things I can't remember. I am so impressed with you ladies flinging hundreds of things from one room!

Cleaned out my filing cabinet. I filled up a recycle bag with papers, but I'm giving myself 10 points only, because I also filled up a cardboard box that will not be flung, but will be stored down in the laundry room - my "just in case" box full of instruction manuals, some photos, lots of papers related to the house, etc.
