Visible progress

Reached my goal yesterday getting the upper and lower cabinets in Ody”s storage area cleared out. Also got my quilts in and up on their shelf. They will need to be refolded for uniformity and optimal display, but are done for now. Found a taker for both the bed and the recliner, so with the help of my back yard neighbor, got the bed out and waiting for it to be picked up this morning. Then I hauled out the vacuum and cleaned that disgusting mess of a carpet. Sprayed it with lysol and ran the big fan for a while. I think whatever was smelling, is gone. Hopefully. I have a call in to a carpet cleaning company and maybe I can get them both done before the new bed gets here. That would be great. For now, I am using my storage bins as a base and the mattress from Ody. I’m hauling the recliner out this morning, that way I don’t have to have a stranger in my house.

Also got my shade sail up yesterday and the hummingbird feeder filled and out. So I am making definite progress. Today’s goal is to finish cleaning out Ody’s middle area and maybe the rest of the kitchen cupboards. Most of that will all go in the shed, so there won’t be much assimilating and absorbing, hoping it goes pretty fast. I am getting really, really tired of this whole moving thing. I need to get her cleaned out, cleaned up and on the market.

Kali Cat is ok. She will NOT eat the prescription food…at all. :( But seems to be pretty comfortable here. She raced from one end of the place to the other this morning, which is considerably longer than the run in Ody. She isn’t using her outdoor crate, but maybe she will eventually. 

So far for wild life I have seen bunnies, lizards, hummers, mourning doves and a few birds I haven’t identified yet. Of course, most of the time I don’t have my glasses on, so I can’t really see them either.

Well, I want to get an early start this morning, so I will go for now. 


  1. Wow, just imagine the wildlife you'll see with your glasses on!
    Glad you are getting settled.

  2. I am really enjoying your blog. one thing at a time and all will get done.

  3. You'll have to post pictures after you get moved in!

  4. Always nice to hear someone likes my blog. It is just my personal daily experiences. To me, it seems like it should be boring. Thank you. And yes, pictures! Like any home, it will constantly be a work in progress, but it already looks a lot different and is starting to feel like home. :)

  5. Oh not boring in the least. I have given thought to do just what you have done as it is so cold here in Iowa; a real hurting kind of cold. I am looking forward to seeing more of your work as well.

  6. I think it is cold everywhere that is snow country this year. The northeast has been hit pretty hard too. I am grateful I am not there. Stay warm! Layers.... :)
