Wonderful donations of books at work filled my shelves. Yesterday I got them off the floor and sorted. While G is at the museum, I may go in to work this afternoon just so I can get them priced if nothing else.
Meanwhile, I’m beginning in the Laundry Room. What’s it’s function, asks the author of the program. I have to reply, “To store laundry supplies, to store hangers, and to do laundry.” The truth is, it’s a total mess with little bits and odds and ends just gathering dust above and below the machines….which need cleaning too.
George does the laundry. He says it keeps him moving away from his computer for a few hours two days a week. The laundry is pretreated upstairs and stored in a laundry hamper in its own hidden cupboard. Two flights down there’s a built in table for folded items and a heavy rod for clothes on hangers. That part is ok.
The author asks about areas for things that must dry flat? I laugh and say that the warm hood of a car or truck works very well. Ironing? Being the laziest person on the west coast, I don’t iron. If it has to be cleaned or ironed, it can go to the cleaners and get pressed there.
Step two: Declutter your laundry room. I couldn’t find a picture to show you how bad it is. Step three: Making it functional. Step four: Making it pretty….and I laugh. How can one make a dark garage corner pretty.
Margot is coming today. Her Rav4 is registered, insured, and in the shop. We have an estimate for the repairs, and she’s coming down to pick up a check. I’m really proud of her for getting all this done. The last two things are the body shop and two tires.
Best of all, my sewing machine is out of the shop. We have lift off.
