Day 1

I got two big clean up projects done around the house...

...cleaned my stove top, tile and grout in the kitchen (I hate white tile and grout - I have both in the kitchen), then I cleaned the large garage bay (I split my three car garage into a two car garage and storage room years ago). I had my handyman over to help mount the shelf unit to the garage wall, clean my gutters and to replace my front door handle. I got everything off the garage floor and gave it a thorough sweep. I decided cleaning it also counted toward a workout session.

Do you have an old over the door shoe holder? The kind with pockets. They make great storage for garden gloves and small tools. I hung one next to the shelves and promptly filled it. I think I could / should throw out some of my really old garden gloves.

I also put away all my Christmas decorations...okay, I confess, I just dumped everything in the spare bedroom. Cleaning that room is my next house project.

The sewing room is picked up and I have a quilt loaded on the frame. Nancy is coming over to sew tomorrow, I'm know she will inspire me to get lot of quilting done.

Doesn't it feel good to get organized though?

Strong work! You are ready for the New Year...or at least to tackle the spare bedroom ;-)
Celebrate the progress...I'm way behind you!

Great job on the garage! I've had enough of the Christmas decorations here - they go tomorrow. Happy New Year to you.

Congrats on whipping that garage into shape--that is a huge job crossed off the list. Usually I don't take down my tree until Jan 1 but have been feeling like getting a head start this year. Good luck with the sewing day!
