Big job finished - the huge cardboard boxes that were flattened and stored between trusses in the attic have been removed. The folding steps to the attic and the hole they're mounted in is a narrow area but I managed to get all but one of the boxes down after turning or folding them to fit the best edge through first. I took the box-cutter up to dismantle one that refused to fit and I wasn't going to try to remember how I got it up there in the first place. All of these were stacked in the SUV on a tarp, then slid through the big door in the recycle bin. One of them wouldn't fit so I had to cut one side and fold it up on itself. I found three invoices on the boxes that can go in a file that I keep for insurance purposes. This clear out is in advance of some work that I need to have done up there.
The top item on the this week's task list is now crossed out and a couple of more added. It's meant to be a list for just this week, and weather is nice until the weekend when wintry weather and extreme cold (for us) arrives. I'm cat sitting for a friend on the weekend so I will have to get out in it, here's hoping it's just cold and not icy.
