AN AFTER GARAGE




We actually spent a day and a half in our garage braving the dust and assorted mold spores to create less chaos.  It worked.  It’s absolutely exhilarating to walk into a space and know exactly where things are. 

There are three metal baskets yet to be sorted.  I like that word sorted.

I had been looking for the nail pot for ages.  It surfaced far away from its home.  I had been wanting my few fabric containers together…now they are.  I had been hoping for one shelf of foods.  We have that too.

This morning George woke with a common cold.  Nothing exhilarating about that.  Instead of heading to the pool, I stuck around to keep him company.  It’s a far, far better excuse that not wanting to swim in 48F degree chill…8.888C.  I read all the advice columns, I read some of the Washington Post feeling very emotional about the articles, and now I will go grocery shopping designing the meals for my simplistic cooking techniques.

  • Himself:  Today working.  Planned three days off to work on his box, and celebrate his birthday.  He will be nursing a cold instead.  It
  • Myself:  So praying that I do not get his cold.
  • Reading:  A new to me author.  Picked up the exact copy of “A little Princess” that my mother used to read to me.
  • Gratitude’s:  George.

  1. That is one hellaciously beautiful job. When I worked in the corporate world I had a staff of about 20, who were tidy, tidy, tidy. Every couple of years the bug would bite; they would purchase more cardboard file drawers and attack the boxes of records that went up to our mezzanine attic. They did such a beautiful job I would drag my boss up to admire it, but he never saw it through woman's eyes. I especially admire whoever hung that ladder. Not to mention the bean pot. Whoops--is that the nail pot?

  2. That is one well organized garage.

  Tidy, much more so now.     Thread is mixed in with the books as are pens and those ever useful measuring implements.   My desk is a bit...
