A Breath of Fresh Air
September 2, 2017 9:39am CST
What a delightful way to start this day with nice cooler temperatures and fresh air. I have my sliding doors open and the windows upstairs just to get the house aired out. It just feels stagnant after being closed up all summer with the air conditioning on. This welcome change in temperatures has given me the urge to start my Fall cleaning. Slowly but surely I've been working on my closet in my bedroom but it's a slow go. I can't believe how how much I've shoved in there so it's a long process going through it all to see what's a keeper and what's to toss. I still have boxes that have never been unpacked from when I moved here 7 years ago. Can't imagine what's in them since I haven't needed anything for all this time. The big project I want to tackle is my kitchen. My cabinets and drawers all need to be reorganized and things have found their way onto the counter tops that don't need to be there. I want to wash the kitchen window (inside and out) and also get a new valance to hang since I'm tired of the old one. My window is fairly small so it doesn't need a full set of curtains and the valance works well. I just hope all this energy results in actually getting stuff done rather than just thinking about it. Anyway. life is good here so what's new with you?

@Marilynda1225 It was fairly busy at work today, but we had a few lulls of quiet during the day as well. In the morning we're going to have to the airport to pick up our son and his wife from their honeymoon. Then we'll have to rush to get me home so that I can get ready to go back into work. And then of course I'll enjoy Monday off-whew, I'll need it!

@JohnRoberts Hmm well...I had to think about it for a minute; I miss California when the roads are iced over or I am trying to get through the snow on an incline in my re-wheel drive vehicle! I also miss the beach, but not the 405 Fwy

Our windows and patio doors have been open for over a week now. It certainly has been great sleeping weather. I hate to do it, but I just may have to buy some fall clothes. Seems such a waste. Hope you tackle some of your chores, bit by bit.
