Wednesday

My driveway has been full of trucks all day, and the garage full of stuff. This is installation day for the new furnace and heat pump. Yesterday we moved stuff and cleaned in deep, dark corners of the garage. In order to make access for wiring, we had to clear some of the attic. We have a lot of stuff from the attic sitting in the middle of the garage. Some of it will go back. After sorting, some of it will disappear. We have already taken a load to Goodwill, and another to the dump. I spent a long time at the grocery store this morning, restocking the pantry, refrigerator and freezer. Then I got outside and did some clean up. You can actually see the patio now that I've removed a thick layer of cedar droppings. After some raking, Tom is getting the lawn mowed. We still have some lovely color in some of the trees. We've enjoyed a dry, sunny day. But that will change tomorrow, as the rain returns. Good. I need a rest! Oh, the furnace vent over my head just came on. We may be nearing the completion of the big project!

  3. Just make sure you are not getting rid of something "special" - we are sentimental people out here!

  7. Isn't it amazing what one can collect and save over the years? Nothing like a big project to get one going on organizing. Your yard is beautiful and so green. Love the red leaves photo.
