It's impressive that you can accomplish so much when the temperatures are so high. The new pantry shelves must be a great help.
At what point do we stop adding ways to organize more thing and start actually reducing the number/volume of things? I know the clock is ticking its way closer to the time when I will have to move into a basement suite or a small apartment. I think back to when I moved into this house over 40 years ago. We came from a small apartment, had only a small collection of furniture and very few "treasures" collected. There was so much empty space! I long to return to that state, but there is nothing that I've acquired since then that I feel I can part with without feeling a great sense of loss. My feeble attempts to get rid of things hasn't made a noticeable difference. Another obstacle, as of September 1st, our Regional District has imposed a fee system for loads of rubbish we take to the dump, that used to be free.
Thursday evening, I mowed both lawns (front and back yards). Friday evening I put fertilizer on both. Pushing and pulling the heavy lawnmower and the much lighter fertilizer spreader are equally hard on my spine, knees and hands. I'm taking anti-inflammatory meds and resting today. I don't know if I will manage looking after this house and yard much longer. So much upkeep that should have been done this summer and last was neglected. That can't continue much longer.
Is anyone else finding that it takes a very long time for Mudcat to load anything? Sometimes I give up waiting.
