Clean part of the fridge. Been doing this all week, a shelf or bin at a time, and where they’re stored. So far, I’ve cleaned the egg bin, the milk bin, and 2 shelves. . . . Decided I should give myself credit for the work!
Make appt for the septic clean out in the spring. Fri. 9:30 a.m.
Vacuum under the bed. Fri.4:15 Actually did the hall and around the bed. Vac. under the bed is an hour-long job requiring moving the bottom mattress, which I am not able to do now with my elbow issue!
Rather than put up lists and get behind, I’m NOT putting up a new “to do” list until the old list is complete.
I have 2 items outstanding on Thursday’s list:
Clean the inside of a closet. Sat. 8:00 a.m., bathroom closet
Go through a new box. Sat 11:15 a.m.

Worked on the attic today for a bit. Found a box which no doubt came out of DH’s office when it closed down — at the company who moved us here, 20+ years ago. This box was in the MIDDLE of the attic, on the floor, so it was behind and under everything else, and had been missed, multiple times no doubt! 90+% of it went to the dump’s recycle bin this afternoon.
Later on, I started going through a bin of my papers, some of which were as old, or older (and business related). They went. I got to near the bottom of the box and found things which needed to be filed, but not tossed, they were that current. I quit.
That said? We recycled 100+ or probably more like 300 pieces of paper today, including catalogs, magazines, sales receipts, etc.,
I talked to DH about taking vacation between Christmas & New Years’, with the idea that we do this or something like it, at least once in that time. It all helps — and tomorrow? Tomorrow’s another day to tackle more.
The bath mat is currently
6.5″ 7.25 wide. I changed out one of the colors at 6″. Will change another when I get to 12″. That’s 20 17 rows from now… each row is .25″. Now you know why I will NEVER make another of these, like this! (Updated 11/26)
