Two days of sorting.

The Center’s basement is 99.9% done, and it’s all thanks to Lloyd (and Gracen). I think I’ve purchased all the shelves in Nebraska. Let’s recall what it looked like before the next round of cleaning began:

The basement has had so, so much stuff just dropped off in it, along with the things were left over after the building was completed – extra cabinets, doors, exit signs, carpet tiles and other building supplies.

Lloyd cleared out a corner.

He and Gracen used the extra cabinets and doors to create a storage space. They used cardboard to protect the door fronts & backs.

Then they went around and gathered up all the assorted junk, tossed the useless stuff and organized the rest. It was amazing!

I assembled some more shelving to put the rest of the tubs on.

Sunday was spent cleaning the rest of the space, but there’re aren’t any ‘before’ photos. Trust me, it was just a huge mess. Now…. it is not!

I just love shelves!

I just love shelves!

One blessing from this whole COVID mess is that little jobs around the Center that have made me grumble for months or years are finally getting some attention. I don’t have photos of all the projects, but I’ve put up some shelving from Home Depot and Sam’s Club. (Also, I just want to say how […]

Puzzling puzzle piece

Puzzling puzzle piece

I’ve finished my third puzzle. I swapped puzzles with a friend, and have also had some others loan me their puzzles. I think they know something about my destiny that I don’t. In a couple of years, a bomb is going to need to be diffused and it will only be possible by putting hundred […]

Unusually sore

Unusually sore

I forgot to write a post last night. Yesterday I got a half-pickup load of sand for the toddler playground and moved it my own weak self, wheelbarrow by wheelbarrow. Thankfully it was not a hot day and the breeze was blowing, because I do not care for that kind of work. I don’t have […]

Laziness always wins.

Laziness always wins.

So, if you think my watering system is lazy, let’s talk compost. Years ago, we had a compost pile out behind the shed, but for some reason it had to go. (I can’t remember why.) Since then, I feel bad throwing out stuff that could be composted. Occasionally, I just throw food scraps out the […]
