Dragging and dropping the contents of drives on the old computer onto a new expansion drive to use for moving it all over to the new computer. A new internal drive will go into the expansion SATA slot this evening (it's on the mail somewhere right now). That expansion drive will then be used as the backup drive.
I have a comparison program for getting rid of duplicate files and I ran it on the old computer a while back; it's time to run that on the contents of this expansion drive so I'm not dropping all sorts of extra junk into the new drive.
Meanwhile, it's mowing this morning, then it's time to apply primer, though I need to pick up a few extras I forgot yesterday.
An important declutter move yesterday was to take apart the clump of things on my SUV key. I received the electronic key and a black dongle that had four buttons that the salesman tested on the lot and we determined it was a remote control for the tailgate. And I added a TILE device that is connected to my phone to help me keep track of the keys. The trouble with that black dongle is that if I nudge it in my office the tailgate rises, so sometimes I go out to the garage and find it up; perhaps I leaned on it last night when I was doing dishes. The last straw was when it popped up at the gas station as I (probably) fastened my seatbelt. I looked back and there it was, wide open. The dongle is now attached to a small carabiner on my handbag strap.
Finally, there are tomatoes simmering on the stove to make sauce. They got a little wrinkly over time but will still cook up just fine. Better to sauce them than toss them!
