A few successes this week...


1) I have disposed of a mountain of paper in the office, and I still have a ways to go. The office shelves look tidy and the mound of old bills and bank statements has been sorted and filed or trashed.

2) I made up about 24 ounces of herbal salve. This is enough to last us a long, long time, plus enough to have some to give as gifts.

3) I made laundry soap, and since I had everything out for grating bar soap and measuring, I made up ziplock bags with all the measured out ingredients so that next time I need to make up some, I have everything there and ready.

4) I took down every bit of baby girl stuff from the attic crawl space--a few things saved from Una, things from the grandparents, things handed down from my friends Cindy and Debbie, and sorted the heaps into plastic bins by age group. I found I don't need a thing clothing-wise for the 0-3 month age range! I doubt I will need much until we get past 9 months in fact!

  3. That's a lot of work for one week! Just going through the paper alone would exhaust me for a few days, but going through the clothes is really good ;)
