But things pile up, cupboards get cluttered, clothes get outgrown, spiders spin in drafts, dust gathers. The rest of the year is busy with the garden, canning, and holidays. This is the work of now.
Taking care of these chores now, makes the summer to do list easier to figure out. Do we need to build that shelf in the kitchen? Do we think about building the addition this year or do we take care of another project instead? When we get rid of the dead dryer in the bathroom do we put a cabinet in its spot or do we put a shelf?
Clean off the top of the refridgerator, clean the inside of the fridge and freezer.
Organize the cupboards in the bathroom.
Move knitting machines and accessories into spare room off the workshop. Set up knitting studio.
Make bread, yogurt, cook up some winter squash.
Find a way to keep the kitchen counter by the back door from become a catchall for EVERYTHING. Ugh clutter ...
Finish painting the freecycle dresser I found for the teen and put on the handles.
Sew window quilts for the back door and front door.
Make a bulk food order for buying club.
Well, that seems more than enough to keep me busy.
