Me thinks I need to get my housework done and make a trip to the Thrift store and see if I can find any goodies to help with some Fall decorating. Stay tuned!
But first, let's get 'er done. As I mentioned in yesterday's post, Thursday and Wednesday got switched this week out of necessity. I did get my menu made up, grocery shopping done, beef stew cooked (yum, I might add), and two extra beef stew meals have gone into the freezer. Done done and done.
Today I'm going to do two items from my "Master List" first - declutter two problem areas I have. I have yet to resolve my issue of having no desk (AKA paper landing zone) in my kitchen, so a pile has accumulated on top of my sewing machine. A second pile of miscellaneous weird stuff has accumulated in a laundry basket on top of my freezer. But honestly - that's not bad. Two piles of homeless stuff?
|Books, magazines, flotsam and jetsam from staining, misc. junk with no home!|
|The dreaded laundry basket that I have to move every time I want to get in my freezer.|
So those two piles will be my Major List tasks for the day.
In addition to my Daily Chores, I need to clean all three bathrooms. Sigh. It's a gorgeous day outside and it's calling to me. Deep cleaning three bathrooms is going to take me a good three to four hours - time which I now want to be decorating for Fall.... so....
Compromise! I will do a "quick clean" of the bathrooms. Clean the toilets and sinks, replenish supplies, put in clean towels and Windex the mirrors - and that's it! No washing down the surround tiles, no washing the floors (which have already gotten vac'd this week) or windows. From an hour each down to 15 minutes each. Perfect! See? I can be flexible even on a schedule!
Also on my list for today (which is Wednesday's List, remember) is empty all trash cans upstairs and down and clean out any old food in the fridge. But (*beam*), I did that yesterday because last night was the night we take our trash cans to the curb. So that lightens up today's list significantly!
So in about two hours time (Daily Chores and quick cleaning of the bathrooms) I am outta here and off on a hunt for some Fall decorations!
By the way, I am proud of myself. I actually got my deck stained! Here's a before and after for you:
|After! Not perfect - but D.O.N.E.!|
LIFE IS GOOD!
