Melanie packs kitchen; Janina organizes

God knew exactly what I needed last week: my friend Melanie called from Saskatoon to say that her family's vacation plans had fallen through and she wanted to come spend some days with me. I reminded her that I would be packing and she exclaimed, "I'm really good at packing," and she IS. She organized me into a system labelling boxes for contents, with a sun symbol indicating storage and a happy face indicating for immediate use. She nearly single-handedly packed my entire kitchen. I don't need ANY of it: I'll be moving in with my downstairs neighbour, Michelle, after all of my stuff is moved, and since Michelle left for vacation on Thursday, I'm using her kitchen already. Perfect arrangement.

Tomorrow another friend is coming from Saskatoon to help with the packing: Janina with her 6 year old twin daughters. Janina read my "new season" post and determined that one of her needs is to organize (is that clerical?). With Michelle gone, Janina and the girls be able to sleep in that apartment and Janina won't even have to share a bed with one of the girls! :)

I am so blessed with good friends ...
