As I said, I'm doing a five day pyramid, without the weekends, but I want credit for all I did this weekend! I've spent hours organizing Kindle lists, checking my list against my online archive, and culling. I'm in the process of deleting 106 titles, slow work since the whole blessed thing has to reload - at a crawl - after each deletion. But I'm getting there. Also, I'll probably go grocery shopping on the way home tonight so I don't have to get out the next two days. I'm such a nester! I never want to leave home anymore.

Straggler from week 1:
Clean microwave

Monday:
1. Dishes
2. Declutter living room
3. Declutter bedroom
4. Clean kitchen surfaces
5. Water large plants
6. Water table plants
7. Put away groceries
8. Prep salad veggies
9. Take meat out to thaw
10. Blue and green color repeats on lapghan
