Ahh! Last night I slept like a rock. Mr. Fix-It had been out of town all week and I never sleep well while he’s gone. Every house has night time noises as it ”settles” at night. The sounds which generally are a comfort & let me nod right off …well, when he’s gone they sound ominous. So, there was a few nights I was still awake at 3 am.
Sleep depravation = low productivity. Took me 2 days to can 47 pints of pumpkin..and I’m still not done. There are 2 more waiting for processing. I didn’t realize just how much pumpkin you get. I see a lot of bread, muffins & pumpkin pies for dessert this winter!
The peppers all got sliced, diced & loaded in the Excalibur
Mmm, such a fresh aroma that lasts for hours!
The past 2 days I’ve been on another de-cluttering/de-crap-afying mission. Where does all this stuff come from? I told Mr. Fix-It we need to check for trail cameras on sale and mount them in the closets. I tell you I think after the last clean out, anything that was left in the closets expanded and multiplied on their own.
Isaiah’s room became the upstairs storage room while we worked on the remodel. I’d kinda burnt out by the time we were done & wasn’t sure what to do with all the stuff we’d crammed in there. Honestly, when I opened the door I was flat overwhelmed with everything that had accumulated. I got in there yesterday and found the floor, pulled the curtains to launder and reorganized quite a bit of it. There’s still a bunch of little boy clutter to clean and sort but, it felt so good to see the progress. Thankfully the toss and giveaway piles were much larger than the keep this time around. I gotta tell you, it feels really good looking in there and actually seeing carpet!
Tomorrow, the Pantry…..maybe.
Have a great weekend
