A Minimalist- Skip days

January 7, 2016

Yesterday January 6th. was a total flop day. I did not do anything at home and for the most part I was not even at home. I left early and did not get back till around eight pm.

Since I got the tetanus shot and antibiotic for the ears I have been extra tired but I wont use that as an excuse because excuses makes us lazy and then the clutter and dirt pile up, right?!

While I usually always wash clothes on Sunday evening and Wednesdays , I did skip yesterday and I am doing the washing right now but that is okay because I prefer to wash with the loads being full to save water and electricity. I have washed a load of colors, dried, folded and put those away, I have a load of whites ( towels and wash cloths) in the dryer and I am washing a quilt now.

I also have to clean the kitchen again, mopping floors this time making it a complete cleaned kitchen.

While I always do most of the serious housecleaning on the weekends, today I will concentrate on getting my paper work tallied up and preparing it for the CPA to file my taxes. That in its self is a total messy situation because I have to spread the papers EVERYWHERE. Maybe, just maybe one day I will find a better filing system but for now this one I can deal with. Especially since this is just once a year thing to do.

Last Tuesday I was called to help move an elderly man and this did take time from my plans for the home but things happen and you have to deal and move on. This elderly man gave us an upright deep freezer, we need it and we don`t need it. Meaning I could use it to store meat in for Tony but I have one already and I will make do. So we decided to put it in one of the rental houses. And he gave me a very nice and expensive comforter set. I have yet to put it on the bed to " see" if I like it or not. If I don`t I will pass it to my sister. I think I will do that today.

So how is your day going?
