and to remind myself: just because you don’t have a job or regular schedule doesn’t mean you’re not BUSY or REMARKABLE.
I reread this every now and then. I recommend it!
Busy or Remarkable but not Both!

Not only is it MONDAY, so my brain is buzzing with all sorts of “things to be done,” but the construction people aren’t here, and there’s this huge back log. It’s also nearly FALL and so all the “delayed” and “put off” chores are screaming! at me.
Accordingly, my ADD tendencies have run amok this morning. I have worked on these items and finished the lined-through ones:
filing manuals, etc. for things we own.
cleaning out behind the washer/dryer Finished about 11:30 a.m.
culling/clearing out the top shelf of the small freezer
figuring out what I will use to replace the French door blinds
Researching how to do it.
- Finding the fabric I already own for the curtains.
Figuring out a way to “put away” the scrub brush which went missing.
Figuring out a possible way to “put away” various roll goods: masking paper, Tyvek, shelf liner & weed cloth are the immediate needs
Work on clearing out the attic.
Work on cleaning up my office.
Laundry x 2 2nd load started around noon. Two loads done Tuesday as well.
Determining the trunk in the kitchen is still empty.
Figuring out another set of crates, etc. to take to the antique store as shelving.
Cull the clay flower pots — I have too many of course. Started about 2 p.m. but not yet finished. Worked on this Tuesday as well. Completed Sunday.
Still to do:
- Go to the hardware store for a piece to determine if the method of hanging roll materials will work.
Clean the laundry room. Finished just before noon.
- Make the bed.
- Find the missing fabric and determine which piece will be used for the door curtains.
Clear out enough of the attic that the trunk can be moved from the kitchen up there. Enough of the attic was cleared Monday, but the trunk hasn’t been moved, yet.
et the crates, etc. in my car and to the antique store. Completed Tuesday.
