I decided that yes, I need to continue with the kitchen counter effort, but the 10′ counter on one side, 7′ on the other is a bit (ha!) more involved than this list of “things I can do around and between regular cleaning.”
So…. I haven’t finished Monday’s list. I’ll keep whacking away at it this week and note it when it gets done, but it’s time to MOVE ON! There are 3 items outstanding: the 10′ counter clear, cull, clean, using the vac under the bed, and dusting the stained glass.
Today I will
Desmudge door knobs.
- Update the grain storage I haven’t looked at lately.
Pick up the laundry room.
- Get the prep complete for the Christmas ornaments I intend to make.
- Finish the final culling, keeping, and storage of last week’s vegetables.
Some of these are really, really quick and can easily be fit between other work, the door knobs and laundry room, for example. The craft prep is a bit more involved. The vegetables and grains will take some time.
Also, it’s Tuesday, that means a regular job is to go thru the fridge for trash donations. (Trash day is tomorrow.)
So, I have 6 items to do on top of the usual laundry (first load started), dishes (had caught up last night, there’s not much there), cooking, writing, etc.
The unfinished items were unfinished due to the fact that I soft threw my back out while doing something NOT on this list: getting the 2nd new dresser from the shed’s porch area. It got its drawers removed, everything got cleaned and it was moved inside. Somewhere in there, I did something that nearly threw my back out. So, my progress on the remainder of my day’s chores was not huge!
I’m beginning to think that the wisdom of not having lists on the weekend is so that I can catch up!
