Day Sixteen

Time to get moving around here…Newell is still feeling sick, so he stayed home today. I am always a procrastinator when he is around, but it is time to get cracking.

First roll of the day: 15 minutes in the Garage. Today, I think I will use it to clean out the car. It really needs it.

UPDATE ONE: That was a small chore, but between emptying the car and stuffing the bags that wouldn’t fit in last week, the trash can is full again. Hopefully someday we’ll be back to not even needing to put it out every week, but for now, the trash is staying ahead of the collection!

Here’s the car all tidied inside:


Before                                                        After

Some people might wonder why I left the blanket and sweater on the back seat. Texas can be unpredictable, and they come in very handy when I sit in the car for long periods sometimes.

Next chore: 30 minutes in the Kitchen. It’s going to be a “lot of little chores” kind of day, I see. No problem. There are a lot of little chores that need doing!

UPDATE TWO: Didn’t take any pictures in the kitchen, because all I did was wash dishes. And most of those I was actually re-washing to clean off residue stuck after a first wash.

But I did take these pictures out the back door. I think they are worth sharing — shows that my bird feeders are really popular. 😉


He was very fat and sassy, and stayed out there nibbling on the sunflower seeds for at least ten minutes.

Next roll: 1 hour 30 minutes in the Studio. Moving books down to the library will probably be a good chunk of that.

UPDATE THREE: I didn’t get as many of the books downstairs as I intended, but I did cull most of a box to go to the used book store. So that was something. And I got some of the craft supplies filed away. Lots to do still, but looking better after every session.





Last roll of the day is another 30 minutes in the kitchen, which I’ll go with, because I would really love to finish that soon, and there is still a lot to do in the kitchen. I think organizing my container cabinet is one of the first things. You know that problem, don’t you? Having a bunch of saved containers to use for leftovers and such, but you can never find the right lids, or they are cracked, or odd shaped…if you DON’T know that problem, good for you!

See you in a bit.


UPDATE FOUR: Here is the results of my cabinet sorting. Tossed an armload of mismatched and lidless containers and lids that didn’t match anything else. Hope it will stay that neat…but it’ll take work.


Ninety-five percent have lids, and some have two. Doesn’t look too bad.


DAILY WRAP UP: 15 minutes Garage + 30 minutes Kitchen + 1 hour 30 minutes Studio + 30 minutes Kitchen = 2 hours and 45 minutes. That’s gonna be close enough for today. 🙂
