I am still in the process of putting things where they will belong for the next three-ish years and I recently found myself opening up the rubbermaid container in the garage that holds a sleeping bag. As part of the move, it also held my extra purses and cold weather wear. I have been thinking a lot lately about the winter weather wear.

I found an older purse that I haven't used in years and decided to throw it out. I don't know why I didn't decide that 2 1/2 months ago before moving it across the state, but here we are. Before tossing it in the bin, however, here here are some of the treasures I found within:

  • 3 chapsticks (one of which is the one I had with me on our England trip in 2006/7. The smell took me back to Hadrian's Wal;
  • 2 barrettes and 7 hair ties;
  • Trogor sticker;
  • a receipt from 2007;
  • several expired coupons;
  • a few photos of the Turners in Yellowstone with only three children, Stewart's Wheaties photo, 2 of my brother Nate, Baby Ryan Turner, and Lucinda;
  • 25 cents.
Not a bad haul, I must say. I have not yet decided where to stick Trogdor.
