I am here!
Today I did a lot of decluttering in our basement, which is damp and mostly houses our tools and crap from old projects the previous owners left. I got three huge boxes of said crap out to freeze and wait for trash day. I also went through ALL our tools, which were previously DH's domain but which I am now claiming as mine also. I am reminded of Cindy's Porch and her phrase, "Shop at home first!" Yeesh, it's a good thing I did, before heading to the hardware store looking for things to use in my next big project, which is painting every room in the house. I found everything I needed except primer and paint.
Also some other interesting things that I'll be able to make good use of later on.
So that was my big accomplishment today.
Last week I started sorting our photos, really getting down to the FOR REAL sorting (LOL) where I put all my photos out on a big table and sort by date and ruthlessly toss the ones I'm not keeping. I plan to cull through a few more times before moving on to the next phase, which will be...sorting them one year at a time, writing on the backs, and putting them in album pages chronologically. Maybe I will get it done in Jan-Feb. Eventually I also need to look at what I have in digital photos from when I got my digital camera (2 years ago, maybe?) and print the ones I want to keep and put them in albums, but that's less critical than dealing with the bins I've had in storage all these years. Boggles my mind.
Uh, what else? Keep maintaining/decluttering our main living space, bit by bit, and collecting things to go out for donation. Work on the basement space more, before the spring thaw floods our basement and brings the moldy smell (ick). Sort my sewing stuff and work on vaporizing my two tubs of mending that have accumulated over the past ten years. (!) That's enough for this month! Wish me luck!
Spring will bring warmer temperatures, just right for working in the garage and shed. Time for that in a few months. But I am excited thinking about it, so that is good!
