Simple Sunday

A lovely Sunday morning walk. They’ve fixed some of the path with new asphalt so it’s much nicer and has fewer cracks to trip on. I use my walking stick in my left hand which does help with stability but mostly I keep it with me so that the AH dog walker moves over when he’s walking in the middle of the path with his dog to his far-left which puts the dog straight in our path. With his passive-aggressiveness, he usually waits till the last second to move over to the side of the path he’s supposed to be walking. Remember driving, bicycles, etc, you stay to your right. Oh well, it was still a very pleasant walk.

I came home and started working on the bedroom closet which is our ONLY closet. I did a little more reorganizing and there’s still some more to do. I’ve decided for the most part to not keep extra pantry stuff in there except for the Costco size cereal boxes. Plus probably the extra coffee bean bags. Last time I went to Ikea I bought a few extra white boxes and now I have all the stuff I use for Easter, Christmas, and Hanukkah in those boxes on the top shelf. I don’t have a lot of clothes so I hang my T-shirts, denim shirts and the 2 sweaters I have. I’m not sure what my end goal is in there but definitely eliminating as much extra stuff as possible.

Then I did the kitchen zone : here’s a few photos.

Someday, we’ll have money to redo the kitchen. Not the lay-out but the counters and the cabinets.

The new sunroom windows are almost in. What happened was the nice old redwood windows had just gotten too water damaged and water was seeping in and getting on the floor when it rained. Granted it is just a porch but we use it a lot for wood, cat litter etc. So now there are windows that will open and that will help with air flow.

Simple Sunday or is it??

Well, it is going to be a lovely sunny day so I’m going to enjoy that. Our yard is looking so pretty with daffodilsUNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_367.jpg, and the lawns turning bright green. Here’s the flowering cherry which is the prettiest bloom I’ve seen in a few years. Last year these trees were hit with a late frost and all the blooms died.

In the far background you can see some of the hoarders stuff across the fence! More daffodils.

Today is a gym day and B has platelets. I’m going to drop him off and then go over to the gym.

Sunday is sheet day so I’m doing those and since it’s so nice out, I thought I’d do our comforter as well.

There’s not a lot on the agenda for today so I guess that does make it a simple day.

I’m reading a new release in ‘home organizing’ called’The Home Edit’. 91xVeNilguL._AC_UL436_.jpg It’s nicely presented with lovely pictures. So far I’ve gleaned a few ideas about organizing stuff. Nice book, if you’re needing some help putting things together. I’m going to pull everything out of the refrigerator today and give it a good clean.

This week we are in the Entryway, dining room(which we don’t really have) and porches. I’m planning to wash windows sometime this week as well.

Update:

 

We went to town. I went to the gym and then was going to pick B up but he had a reaction(second time) to the platelets. So he had to stay and then they sent him to the ER.

He’s home now and all seems ok.

Dinner is roast chicken.

 

Sunday to do list

Yikes, we did a lot already and it’s just after 1 pm.

B and I walked 2.7 miles. This is the most I’ve walked yet. That was at 7am. Then breakfast, went to town. First stop Staples for more of the photo holders. Nope it was 9:45, not open till 10. Onward to the feed store for hay for the birds, nope 9:50 not open till 10.

down to Bel Air to return to extra spices B had gotten me for pickles , yes, they were open. Over to Home Depot for stuff, caulking, a hook ,and something else, can’t remember. Then over to target. Spent way too much, but got a bunch of organizing stuff. An oxo turn thing for my vitamins. A cute shelf thing that stacks the cans, very nice. A new set of fry pans as the ones were using are all scratched. The old ones are Rachel ray . I loved the orange color but they did not last. These new ones are kitchen aid. Not very expensive . My other pans are all clad. All clad my opinion are the best besides Lecruset. Then a new t shirt. 

And of course cat food!!! then back to the feed store and staples. Yikes, this is a lot for me. 

Then came home made some yummy bread( I had made the dough this morning), and started on the pickles. Then put up the shelf in the pantry and I really like how it stacks them . Very neat. 

 

So, I think I’m going to go read for a while….
