Well, the Bake and Book Sale for the library went well. It was a lot of work though and most of us, okay all of us are older although I’m the youngest(ha ha). Still, I was wiped out by Saturday night. But it’s over and done for a year. We made a little over $500 so that’s good for our little branch library. The FOAL gives $ quarterly to the branch to purchase books.
Then Sunday B took off the other side of the cabinet doors. I went to Target and got some more wire bins that I like quite a bit and then put the items I wanted in them. When I’m ready to paint the shelves I can just take down the bins and they are all sorted already. I probably will start that this week as B goes up to the north coast this week so I’ll have long days home alone. It’ll be a good time to finish this project a little at a time. I’m planning to do the first coat one day and then a 2nd the next and then a final 3rd coat.
Today or this week rather is the bedroom zone so I tackled the closet/pantry. I took EVERYTHING out, wiped shelves and rearranged. It was a lot of work but it looks way better and I have a good idea what’s in there. First, I was surprised I don’t have that much pantry stuff. I did a lot of canning this summer so there are a lot of jars of jams and tomatoes and pickles. But that will get eaten down this winter. So all in all, good.
I still need to do the windows and dust.
I’m not going out today at all. I will just finish up a few things and read or sit outside in the beautiful fall weather.
One thought on “Monday doings…”
I can not remember when I last saw or attended a bake sale. I remember they were fun and tasty.
