    Sorted through the paper in the sewing room. Next up is the last surface that needs picking up and dusting off. Then down to the entries and hallway.

    Worked on a evergreen bush today.
    I trimmed half of it , gathered all the
    branches, and mostly cleaned up.
    Lots of interruptions, and then it got hot.

    I put the corner garden tool stand together,
    and will work on getting it placed when I get
    rid of the window that's in it's place. It takes
    so little to make me tired.

    And I haven't done a thing. Good grief! Had some serious financial concerns, which are smoothing out now. And now we're having a heat wave. *eye roll* I'd crawl into bed and hide but its piled with laundry and school stuff that needs to be put away lol.

    I kind of got wrapped up in other things too. Maybe making a list will help me?

    ~ clear off final surface in sewing room.
    ~ check smoke detector battery.
    ~ replace weigh scale battery (both human and food).
    ~ get knives sharpened (thanks for the idea!).
    ~ check weatherstripping around windows.
    ~ work with DH on entry floor solution and DO IT!

    3 bags of books left the house, full load in car
    (trunk, backseat and passenger seat) from the
    garage to GW, several flat surfaces were cleared.

    Finished the bush, and cleared what was close to
    the fence on another

    Got the tool stand filled and in garage, swept out
    that corner, the window is still there

    Me too. Haven't got a thing done on my list. I could add to it though. Apparently the battery on my kitchen scale is toast too. Another battery needed.
