Another Dab of This and That

Want unexpected company? Easy -
Just get involved in a project, and have "stuff" scattered all over the place. Everything you have in the house to eat is healthy, low salt, low fat/cholesterol . You know - No tasty snacks. Oh - Be sure you have no makeup on and you barely ran a comb thru your hair that morning. Yep! Works every time!

Just one of "those" conversations. Why are those so small?
Me - They are cuties.
I know what they are, but the cuties I bought are bigger than that.
Me -
Here - take some home with you.
No thanks - I have plenty. Just saying the ones I bought are bigger than those.


A bit more done on the "L":
Went thru walk-in closet where a little of everything is kept. Mainly holiday decorations. Just straightened things up a bit and labeled boxes, as I went thru most of the decorations some time ago and got rid of quite a bit. Removed a stack of placemats and table runners that I have not used in years, and put them with some things for daughter to go thru next time she is here. Walk-in closet for general storage sounds ideal does it not? Well in my situation - Not. Reason being the ac/heating unit occupies one end of it, so have to leave full access to that area. Could have probably decluttered more in there, but I marked "walk-in closet" off the "L" and called it done. Check

Decluttered and organized main closet, dresser and large chest of drawers - may clean out clothes a little more when I change out seasonal items. I did notice several things I have not worn in quite a while. However, in the mean time I will consider that room done and ready to be painted. Check

One room left to be done upstairs - guest room. Opened closet door and could not get it shut fast enough. That room and closet is the dumping ground for things that need to be packed up or gotten rid of. So until it is decided if a yard sale is in the future and/or daughter checks to see if there is anything she wants - that area is on the "back burner".

Cleaned out and reorganized closet in LR. Pitched a several things I may regret later - but then that "may need later" mentality is why I am having to go thru and sort things now. "sigh" LR closet done. Check

Replaced weather stripping on slider. Check
Spray around outside doors. Yep! Bug season is just around the corner and they are NOT welcome in my home. Check

Decided to take a break from "physical work" and do a little "mental work"
Income Taxes Done !! Check - Check - Check

Side Note: The blogger cleaning crew never showed up! Sorry Ladies & Gents - Can't send them your way. :/
How about you? How are you doing on your "To Do List" ??

Just another "Dab of This and That" ramble on a rainy afternoon.

You are way ahead of me!! Do you remember Fibber McGee and Molly? Well my closet is ten times worse than theirs.LOL

As far as healthy food, that cornbread salad and mini fruit pizza on a sugar cookie, we had, are extremely healthy! That's my story anyway.

I can't wait to get the income taxes done but I haven't even started. I actually like this little oranges. They are sweet...Christine

Donna said...

To be honest I haven't even made a list .. it would be so long!
I only have company when I have no makeup, my hair is not done and the house is a mess!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Wow, you sure have been busy. Isn't it nice to get so many things checked off? I bought paint about two years ago for three inside doors, it never got done. The painters just left...they finished ten doors in six hours. YES!!!! Check.
I have a bowl of cuties sitting right on my counter. I could peel an entire bowl in the time it takes to peel one big orange.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I love Clementines! I think the Cuties are a little smaller but who cares, they're delicious.

Trying not to make too many lists. I get too stressed out looking at them!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...
