Sharing our Stuff

I have to say that one of the most unexpected pleasures of living here is seeing my "former" belongings turn up in odd places. Just last week, I was at the membership meeting at Barbara's and noticed her new shoe shelf that looked familiar. Well, just a few days before, it sat in our office and held our TV. And the bright orange and yellow rag rug that is now in our kitchen, once lived in Lisa's house that she moved out of. We have a free area in the laundry room where items wait to be reclaimed. I won't go so far to say that we are leaving behind ownership of things, but it sure does shake up those patterns. I welcome a bit of shaking.
