I haven’t made up my 6 list today. But here’s what I’ve done this morning:
- Washed dishes
- Washed rags
- Swept the hearth, entry, living room, and hall.
- Polished the fire screen.
- Depilled my muffler. (wonderfully soft/fuzzy, wants to pill!)
- “Mopped” the hearth. (Spray bottle and rag on my knees, no mop.)
- Gotten down a block of soap to be cut into bars.
- Went through a stack of mail, cull/shred/file.
It’s 10:15 a.m., I think this counts!!!

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!

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!
