Today Tom and I cleaned house. We even got into some corners that we have neglected before. No, we were not completely thorough. We did not get into cupboards and closets. After all, if you can't see it, you can ignore it. Right?
Cupboards and closets do need to be sorted through, but that will be another day, or days. Blogger Connie asked us a few days ago to think about a one word intention for 2018. I finally came up with one - Reduce. Of course that means weight, which despite all my exercising, is creeping back on. But it also means culling and getting rid of stuff hiding in those cupboards and closets, and out in the garage, and even in the garden, as we move toward a lower maintenance planting scheme.
So, back to today. We cleaned. And then we put things back where they live eleven months of the year. One of those big jobs is getting the pottery collection out of the places it was stored to make room for the Santa collection and get it back on the shelves.
Some was stored in an upstairs closet. That meant lots of trips up and down the stairs. A month ago I hauled it all up there. This time Tom brought it all down. It is much safer for me carry things up than down.
Some was stored in a tub in the garage.
And now it is all back in place.
Each time I display it, the arrangement is different, but that collection of pueblo pottery always gets its own shelf.
And now I think we are done, everything back in place. Oh, and yes, I did find one Christmas thing that got left on a wall. It got stuck in a drawer.
I also went grocery shopping and did my floor exercises and walked 2.75 miles today.
I think my place will be in my recliner this evening.
